A bunch of Random

I made our favorite dinner, lasagna, for Valentine's Day which we ate by candle light, romantic huh? Well, it probably would have been a little more so without Daylen in the background, but oh well.

We have been having a hard time getting Daylen to drink milk, he always makes faces and spits it out. I'm lucky if I can get him to drink some of the milk in his cereal bowl once the cereal is all gone. For some reason he was willing to give it another shot. He wanted the lid to his sippy cup gone so he could drink it like mom and dad and he didn't spit it out! We were so excited we started cheering and he loved that of course so he would drink a little more then start cheering for himself while we joined in.

Now he has the milk mustache to prove he actually drank more than a sip! The next night we were babysitting for his friend, Rylan, who likes milk, so when he saw Rylan drinking milk he actually wanted me to get him some as well! 2 days in a row so far, lets see if we can keep this up. His cousin, Ivan, is coming to visit this weekend and he loves milk so hopefully all this exposure will keep Daylen going in the right direction.

Daylen and Rylan had so much fun playing together, they were cute to watch. They got up in the rocking chair together and just laughed and laughed! So here they are having fun. We started trading off babysitting on Friday nights with our friends Janell and Kevin (Rylan's mom and dad) and so far it has been awesome!

What a nice Valentine's day dinner...tablecloth, candles & all! Go Daylen! Hopefully he will keep this up and start loving milk.

You're right...the Friday night switch off has been awesome! You are such a nice wife, setting up a nice romantic valentines dinner. I'm sure we just ate our dinner on our washable disposable plates...we're lame!
