Easter Cookies

I decided to make Easter cutout cookies yesterday on a whim when we were in the store. I bought premade dough and a few cookie cutters and Jesse helped me cut out the cookies. The icing was my handywork. Jamie came home and we all ate cookies after dinner. As you can see, Jesse enjoyed his very much!

Jesse's First Haircut

Jesse had his first hair cut on Friday and he looks so cute! I was putting it off because everyone would tell me that he would look so grown up. He does look more grown up but oh so cute! He was an angel while Kathy at Cookie Cutters cut his hair. Check him out!

Busted Again!

Yesterday I caught Jesse taking everything out of his bathroom cabinet. Don't worry, there's nothing harmful in there. He was having a great time playing with all of his bath stuff. I also caught Chester sleeping on top of my clean clothes. Poor thing, he's been a little sick lately and attention deprived. We had a great day yesterday. It was warm and so nice outside. Today it's rainy and cold. Jesse is such a great kid. We went to my allergist yesterday and he was so well behaved. I also took him out to dinner by myself while Jamie had class last night and he was the best! I love that kid!

What's new

Ok, this blog is going to be a synopsis of what's been going on in the McEldowney household for the past week.

First of all, this past weekend we got a snow storm here in Louisville. We had about 8-10 inches, which is good for KY. Jamie had to go out and shovel the driveway. He also helped our neighbor shovel his. He's such a nice guy!

The other night Jamie was getting ready to put something together for me and Jesse wanted to help. The problem is that Jesse's help means crawling on top of the box so Daddy can't do anything. Oh well! Jamie can't wait until he's old enough to help him do manly things!
Last but not least, I busted Jesse yesterday. I was on the computer upstairs and he was playing quietly. I got up to check on him and looked around the corner to find that he had pulled all of his clean clothes out of the laundry basket. He was having so much fun! Needless to say, I folded all of those clothes later that day and put them away.

Jesse's 1st Steps!!!

Hey! We were so excited last night at about 6 pm Jesse took his first few steps!! Yea!! We were so excited and I was happy that Jamie was home to see it. He did it again this morning. He can only take about 2 steps before he falls down but we are so excited about those 2 steps. We called his Nana and Papaw and they were very excited to. His Auntie Lauren, who we have decided to now call LoLo, was also very happy to hear the good news. Our precious little boy is growing up so fast and we are loving every minute!

On another note, we are happy that LoLo, Uncle Danny & Cassidy now have their own blog. For those of you who know them or have heard me talk about them please check out their link.

Still not walking!

Well, Jesse is now 13 months old but he still isn't walking. That isn't necessarily a bad thing though. He's definitely close, at least I think so. We've caught him a few times standing on his own for a few seconds over the last couple of days. His new favorite thing to do is to hold on to momma's fingers and walk around the house. He gets upset if I won't do it. I know, we are biased, but we think that he's just the cutest little boy that ever was. I look at him every day in amazement. Since turning 1 he's had his first peanut butter & jelly sandwich and, as you can see from his picture, he thoroughly enjoyed it! He loves bath time and enjoys playing with all of his great bath toys. He loves the water and we are thinking of getting swimming lessons before the summer. The other night he fell asleep while drinking his bed time bottle. He looked so peaceful laying next to daddy!
We cannot wait until we get some warmer weather. The other day was about 70 degrees but it was just a tease. We were so happy to get outside in the sunshine. Jesse especially loves the outdoors. We took him for a walk in his new buggy that we got him for his birthday. I should have taken a picture but I didn't think about it. Oh well! Maybe next time.
