Well today was the day, for some reason, he decided to fix it. It didn't even take him that long to do. Had I known he could actually do it, I would have nagged a lot more frequently.

I was a little worried how Anthony would do staying up so late, I had told Natalie I was thinking about leaving him behind to stay with his Grandma and Grandpa, but she seemed disappointed that he wouldn't be coming, so I decided to bring him along. We got to the Auto Show around 6:30pm and before the group split up we made plans to meet back up to leave for the restaurant at 9:30. All I could think was Oh boy, Anthony's bedtime is 8pm, this should be interesting. I must say though, he was a very good little boy, in fact I think he really loved the auto show. He didn't last 15 minutes in his stroller and he wanted out. Every SUV we looked at he wanted to get inside and check it out. As soon as the car door was opened he was leaning over reaching for it to let us know he wanted in.
Here are a few pictures I took:
I started off getting into the cars with him.But really he just wanted to get in and check it out all by himself.He didn't just want to sit in them, he wanted to drive them too.
And this is the SUV that I liked the best. The Volvo XC90
My second choice was the Audi Q7, but I didn't get any pictures of it.
Here is Anthony all tuckered out as we headed into the restaurant around 10pm to eat dinner.
Here he is with his cousin-in-law, Leah. They didn't get to hang out and play much, but I think they would have had a lot of fun together if they had.

Nobody tell Anthony that he is being used. He really thinks Brewster likes him now.

All in all I ended up being 30 minutes late which turned out to be no biggie, sat in the courtroom for 2 hours while they selected and questioned about 25 jurors before they selected the final 14 jurors, and then the rest of us were dismissed. So thankfully I got to leave and was home and in bed by noon. Oh and $23.50 richer.

I'm hoping it snows tonight more than the expected 3-6 inches and they will cancel due to weather since my back up plan of having someone come in for me the second half of my shift didn't work out.
They do jury duty oddly in my county. At least I think they do. Instead of getting a day of jury duty, you have to be on call for jury duty for a whole week (it used to be a month). So it isn't like I can just take the week off work just in case I get called in. And because I am "prn" at my job, I don't get paid either. So its a double "this sucks" kinda thing.
So everyone cross your fingers for lots and lots of snow tonight!

PB&J's, Noodles, and mac and cheese are iffy still, but occasionally he'll eat them, just depends on his mood. Gold fish and crackers are immediately thrown on the floor for Brewster who is always hanging out by the high chair at meal time eagerly waiting to catch any dropped/thrown food.
He is also starting to let me mix his bottles half and half with milk and formula. Every once in a while he will drink straight milk, but most times I still have to mix it, and it still has to be in a bottle. He refuses to drink milk out of a sippy cup. However he will drink juice just fine out of a sippy cup.
His all time favorite food is ice cream. He will never refuse it and if he sees you eating it he will ask for it by smacking his lips at you. Tonight we went to a Notre Dame basketball game with Anthony and he was on my lap looking at the people behind me. Pretty soon he started trying to climb over my shoulder to get to them. I turned around to see what was causing him to want to go to a stranger. Turns out these guys were eating ice cream. Anthony was trying so hard to get to them, then he started smacking his lips and spit the pacifier out. He was making such a scene, everyone was laughing. The guy started to feel bad, he even said he wished he had another spoon so he could share. Finally Anthony started crying he wanted it so bad, so we had to send Grandpa to the concession stand to buy him his own, and then he was happy again.
Here he is walking around with the cleaning ladys bucket on wheels.
He loves Brewster, unfortunately the feeling isn't mutual and usually Brewster runs away from him. Which is probably just as well. Little dogs don't have the best track record with little kids.
Here he is playing with his new play tent we got him for his birthday. He really loves it, and even though I thought it was a little pricey when we got it, it's turning out to be worth every dollar, cause he plays with it every day.
Oh and one more thing, he has 6 teeth, 4 on top and 2 on the bottom.

Our Great Aunt Kate is in the hospital recovering from a stroke. Thankfully she is improving everyday. Francie, Tony and I went up to visit her this evening and these are a few pictures we took. Then Francie came over to my house and took some more pictures of him just before bedtime. For some reason he gets really happy and sweet just before bedtime. Almost as if he is trying to convince me to let him stay up later and play some more.
