Can I get fries with that deposit?

You know you're feeding your kid too much fast food when you go thru the drive-up window at the bank and you hear from the back seat "fries! fries! fries!"

But let me tell you, feeding a toddler is next to impossible. Or maybe just feeding my toddler is next to impossible. I used to worry constantly about what he eats but I have decided it is a battle not worth fighting. Tonight Declan had a banana and some pancakes for dinner. I guess it could be worse! He was screaming for cookies but I told him "no cookies for dinner." I don't really know if pancakes were really that much better but at least I didn't give in and give him the cookies! He's growing, he's happy, he's healthy, so I don't pull my hair out so much anymore. :)

20 months

Dear Declan, you are 20 months old today! It is amazing to me that you are almost 2 years old! I was watching you walk with your daddy today and you looked so grown up. Hard to believe it wasn't long ago I was cradling you in my arms. I miss that, but you make up for it with the big hugs you give me when you wake up in the morning. I wrap a soft blanket around you and lift you out of your crib. You sit on my lap in the rocking chair and we read books. You like to read books with Elmo in them but you have other favorites too. Mostly you like to point out things in the books...moon, clocks, chairs, animals, all sorts of things. You continue to amaze us and everyone around you at how fast you learn new words! One word I'm not particulary fond of that you learned is "TV." This is not a word mommy likes to hear. Mommy doesn't want you to watch a lot of tv but every now and again it's ok. You like to watch Little Bill, Elmo's world and your My Gym dvd. You are growing big but I'm not sure how because you hardly eat anything! You, my son are the pickiest eater on the planet! We try to get you to eat new things but you refuse. You do like avacados and that makes me happy because they have lots of nutrients! Hopefully one day you will learn to appreciate all the wonderful foods out there! Now that you have perfected the skill of walking, you are moving right on to running!! Your favorite thing to say when the car comes to a stop is "Run." You know that we are getting out of the car and wherever we are going, you want to run around there! Sometimes, just to let you burn off some energy, we will go to the grocery store and mommy will let you loose! It's a workout for me to keep up with you! :) I think you are definately going to be a runner like your daddy. I know you will look up to him and want to be like him someday. Another thing you like to do is sing! That is something mommy likes to do too. You like to sing in the car and sometimes you want to hear the same songs over and over and over. And that's ok because mommy loves to hear you sing!! You will be my karaoke partner someday ok? Well that is all I have for now. I love you my little ball of energy! You make me so proud everyday and I can't stop staring at your beautiful face. You are truly a wonderful little boy. Hugs and kisses, mommy.
