Christmas Card

I had been trying to get a "good" picture of Ben for our Christmas card for weeks. I finally gave up and decided to go to a profession at Portrait Innovations. They had done his 18 month portrait so I thought they would do a good job. During our session, Ben ran out of the room multiple times, bit me, and tried to bite the photographer. I was very worried that we would have nothing to chose from.

Here are some of the outtakes.....

And the winner is..........

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

Too Soon!

Look at that sweet face!! Too bad he isn't always that happy. I think that the terrible twos have come early!!! He is throwing and I mean "throwing" fits all the time. The biggest problem we are having is biting and hitting!!! As soon as he gets upset, he lashes out at me. The crying and screaming don't really bother me, it's the bodily harm. Does any one have and suggestion on what to do? We do timeout but he is sorry for 5 minutes and then starts all over again! What should I do when are out and this occurs? We had a full scale melt down in the check out line at Toys R' Us yesterday. The one where everyone is looking at you and is so happy that their kid isn't acting like that. I'm sure it was the first of many more wonderful moments.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated!!

The battered and bruised mommy.

Top Ten Tuesday - Letter W

Game time!!!! I though that this might be fun to play. All you have to do is make a list of ten of your favorite things. But there is a little catch. Everything on the list has to start with a specific letter of the Alphabet. That letter is randomly assigned by the blogger who you are playing with!

I got assigned the letter W from Michelle.

1. Water - I love to be near any kind of water - oceans, lakes, rivers. It is just so calming.

2. White Chocolate milkshake or ice cream - does this need a description of it yumminess!

3. Wife - I love being a wife to my husband!

4. Waffle House - Best place to go eat breakfast after going out!

5. Winter - I know that most people don't like winter but I do. It's not that cold here in Georgia and my favorite holiday, Christmas, is during winter.

6. Weddings - I really like going to weddings. I think that is fun to see "the dress", the flowers, and even dance.

7. Whipped Cream - All dessert is better with a little whipped cream!

8. Willow tree - It's one my favorite trees and looks like it should be a fairly tale with it's long flowing branches.

9. Wontons - One of my favorite appetizers for Chinese food.

10. Wrapping paper - I am such a sucker for wrapping paper!! I love it. I always buy too much at Christmas because there are so many to choose from!

If you'd like to play along let me know!! I'll assign you a letter.
