A day in the life

of Lenny Wever. For the grandmas. In no particular order:
Lennon and his watermelon snack/disaster. Notice the juice just dripping down his chest.
Eating naked is his only option these days. No use fighting it.
He is obsessed with our scale. I've told him, "Lennon, stay off the scale and just watch what you eat and exercise. You'll never be eight pounds again; you're not a newborn. It's just not healthy...I know, I know the babies in magazines are all eight pounds but who wants to look like that?"
But does he listen?
Fresh out of the tub hair
WARNING! These pictures are heartbreaking! I know, I know...I'm a mean mom. However, Lennon floated on his back completely on his own yesterday for 20 seconds.
When I watch him in the water, it really freaks me out to picture an actual accident occuring. I lay in bed at night and ask myself, "Did I leave Lennon in the pool? Or is he in bed?"

Haunts me.

More to come...

I'm so impressed with you, Holly! I hope I can be as brave as you...watching your baby learn how to survive in a pool. Yes, it's heartbreaking, but so great!

LOL! This was hilarious! Poor kids these days- they are all doomed to suffer from body image issues!

And very smart to get him started in the pool- that thought would haunt me too if I had a pool in my backyard!

Lennon is a cutie!

I love the fresh out of bath hair.

It's great you are teaching him to swim. It will be a great way for him to stay confident and spend less time on the scale...I hope. Maybe Oprah can do a show soon on body image issues for toddlers.

Thanks for the the new pics & also thanks for the conversation yesterday! The swimming pictures are sad, but so smart to get him floating... He is growing up fast!

So, I think the swimming is so awesome and I wish I could do it with my toddler. And last night, I dreamed about Hy learning how to swim. Weird, huh?? Lenny is a cutie! I enjoy checking out your blog. -Jen

Watermelon snacks are the best!

The swimming lessons is so tough. I saw something on TV the other day about it and I'm just to big of a wuss to do it. Who knows, maybe I'd feel differently if I had a pool. You're awesome.
