Do you like to buy presents ahead of time or right when you need to give them?
Normally I like to buy presents ahead of time, but more often than not I don’t have the time and can’t get around to it until close to when I need it. Except for Christmas shopping. I’m pretty good about starting early, but I usually shop right until the last minute. That sucks but I like the malls at christmas time. Not with 2 kids though. You won’t catch me in the malls this year. This year I’m doing the bulk of my shopping online. I might pop into Walmart for some toys for the boys, but that’s about it.
In other news, the peanut is 7 months old today. He is sitting well now, hardly ever falls over. Only when he tries to reach for a toy. He’s trying to pull himself around with his arms, crawling can’t be far behind. He is also pulling himself up to a standing position quite well now. Of course he prefers standing, just like his brother did. Now he’s trying to work out how to get his legs to move him around. He’ll be cruising around this place by Christmas.
He’s doing much better eating solids now, thankfully. The first week went well, the second, horribly. But by about week 4 we were back on track and now he eats everything I give him. We’ve tried peas, carrots, sweet potatos, butternut squash, broccoli, rice and wheat cereal, all with no adverse reactions. Next I’ll move on to the fruits.
