Comfort Eating

Erik has been really cranky lately since he's been teething. His first ones that he got when he was six months didn't really bother him. In fact, I didn't even realize he was teething until we were at the doctor and she said, "Oh, look, he has two teeth coming in!" The past 4 days or so he has been miserable. He'll just start crying out of the blue, he'll crawl after me bawling, he'll loudly protest if I put him down, and he'll pull on my legs and wail. So this morning, when I'm cleaning the kitchen, I realize that I haven't heard from him in a while. On a regular day it's normal, but lately it isn't. So I go to see what he's into...

I had left the closet open where I keep all my bags and purses. He had pulled everything out of my diaper bag and had rummaged through it until he found a bag of cookies that I had stashed away in there. Needless to say he didn't want to give it up.
And here's Erik pushing his little walker along. He loves the thing.

I like how he is pushing it sideways. Creativity or just brute strength?

He sounds like Cali teething. He's so old. I love how Taylor is beating up someone while mommy's not looking.

He is beautiful. Where'd he get those amazing eyes, I wonder!
