Being the mom of a little boy, there are things I never even thought about until now. Like potty training. Now I know Beckham is only 6 (almost 7) months old, but it's things like this that worry me. I am not a boy, I have no idea how to tinkle like a boy, so how in the world am I suppose to teach my son how to potty in the "big boy potty?" So I am sharing this with my co-worker, Marcy, the other day and she tells me this story.

She and her 3 year old grandson, Hayden, were at her house and he is recently potty trained. When he was finished in the bathroom they had this conversation:

Marcy: "Hayden, did you go big boy poop in the potty?"

Hayden: "No, I went DINOSAUR poop in the potty!"

So the next day when he finished his business...

Marcy: "Hayden, did you go dinosaur poop in the potty?"

Hayden: "Uh-huh, T-REX!!!"

OK, I am out of my Guitar Hero addiction, at least for a littlw while. Here are the latest of Beckham. He gets more and more fun everyday! He had his 6 month check up this week, and praise the LORD, he's healthy! And when I say healthy, I mean it. He is tipping the scales at 18lbs 4oz!! He's "talking" a ton, rolling all over, getting up on his knees a little, sitting up all on his own, and so much more! Everyday is something new. This morning I actually teared up when I saw how close he is to crawling. Time is going too quickly. But I love this age!

Guitar Hero is going to make me need anger management classes! I never knew I could get SO blasted mad at a game, but I sure do. And what makes me so mad is that my husband is so stinkin good at it! It just goes to show, I have NO musical abilities in my body at all...not even the computer generated kind! And I am not so sure it would be a good idea for me to ever play against somebody. I can see the headlines now: "Woman arrested for assault with a Guitar Hero guitar!" Ok, I'm not that bad....maybe?

Hi, my name is Angela and I am a GUITAR HERO ADDICT!! Ok step one is admitting that I have a problem, right? Well, I do. Yesterday I bought Josh Guitar Hero to play. It is the most FUN game ever!! And I do not play video games! I truly don't see the point of video games, but this one ROCKS!!! (no pun intended) We stayed up until 11:00 playing, and if you know me, it takes alot to get me to stay up past 10 on a work night! I only stopped at 11 because I couldn't make it thru one song, and the competitive side of me got totally mad and quit! It's such an ugly side of me. But it was such a blast! I see it now....Josh is going to some home on Mondays and Fridays, and there I'll be, still in my PJ's, Beckham will be unchanged and starving, Buddy will be begging to go outside, and I'll be on the couch, on a GUITAR HERO high for the past 8 hours!! Just kidding....but it truly is addictive!! Maybe I'll post a video later of us playing. It's pretty hysterical how mad I can get at a stupid game!!

Hey I have started new blog to post some of the pictures, not of Beckham, that I have taken. Kind of an online portfolio. Here's the address in case you want to check it out.

Just a few extra pictures. These were taken in his crib. I had put him in there for just a minute while I ran and id something really quickly, and when I peaked around the corner, he was looking over the top of his crib at me. I could barely see his little face. I just had to take a picture. The others I thought were just sweet.

Can you believe it???

Ok, anyone who knows me even a little bit will probably know that there is one thing in this world I absolutley REFUSE to eat... AVACADO!! I can't explain it. I have never tasted an avacado or anything made with avacado, but the mere thought of putting that green , squishy, slimy thing in my mouth completely repulses me. I am THAT passionate about my dislike for avacado. So you can imagine my dismay when reading my baby food book I came across the fact that avacados are one of the best things you can feed a baby. Yes, it's true. I even went to internet to find conflicting information, and all the websites agree. Some even say that it has been argued that humans could live for a significant amount of time on avacados alone due to their high nutrional content. UGH!!! I couldn't believe it!!! BUT not only do I want my son to be healthy and eat foods that are good for him, I just as importantly do not want him to be the type of picky eater that Josh and I are. I want him to at least try everything before he decides he doesn't like it. Unlike his mother! My brother's kids eat all sorts of things that kids normally don't like. Olives, tomatoes, etc... In fact, one of their favorite snacks is cherry tomatoes!

So in light of all of that, I fed Beckham avacado yesterday. I truly did not like doing it at all, but I did it. I mashed it up, mixed it with a little formula, heated it up just a tiche, and fed it to my son. And of course, he liked it! SO for all of you who have tried for years to get me to eat avacados, I hope this will be a little sweet justice for you. And I still don't ever plan on eating avacados.

Here are a few pictures marking this momentous occasion.

Here is the nasty avacado on the spoon. YUCK!
Here's the first bite. YUCK!!
Not quite sure if I like this or not.

Hey, that stuff is pretty yummy. More please.
