I am out of ideas and in way over my head! I am doing more laundry, bathes, and floor cleaning than is healthy.  I'll let the pictures speak for themselves but if I can't fix this soon, I'm going to go nuts...

 So to all you moms out there with way more experience/patience than I have: How the heck do you teach them to feed themselves without losing your mind?!? Or maybe I am just feeding him the wrong things but I swear he can make a mess with AnyTHiNg! 

I didn't think it would be this hard to let him turn into a big boy..

June Part 2

The rest of June was spent recovering from our trip and enjoying the beautiful weather (this was before the humidity set in).
Father's Day was wonderful; we had awesome food with awesome friends and I don't think it gets better than that! Phillip is the world's best dad (even if we didn't get a perfect Father's Day picture). The picture thing was my fault. I forgot to get one before church and Porter fell asleep in the car after church so it wasn't until right before bed that I remembered. Of course at the end of the day Porter was exhausted which equals ornery, mean, sad baby. He took 1 good picture and fell apart. So I did what ever good mother would do and stopped taking pictures. O wait, no, no I didn't. I gave him a lollipop and said "smile". I know I have a long way to go...

I remembered my camera on a play ground trip and we finally got Porter to the pool. He hates the sand box and was not digging the pool either. But I was insistent that he love the pool so he wouldn't break his father's heart (Phillip was a big swimmer)  and after about 10 minutes of him trying to get me to pick him up he gave in. When it was time to go I had to drag him out. I finally won a battle with my one year old!! YEA!

June was a great month and July has started off pretty good as well. Hurray for summer!
