Day 12 - Sunday - January 12

I hung this cheap mirror at the suggestion of Spencer's Speech Therapist.
It was an instant hit!

Day 13 - Monday - January 13

OMG What was I thinking?!
Did I mention how much I hate food messes??

Day 14 - Tuesday - January 14

They have these at the Children's Hospital, but this was his first ride in one.
He kept signing for me to push him more!

Day 15 - Wednesday - January 15

Our last Physical Therapy session with Rachel, as she is moving on.
I had to get a ton of photos! We'll miss her!

Day 16 - Thursday - January 16

Another Muffin Tin Lunch. We prefer to call them Monkey Platters.
I just picked up the (2) tins last weekend.

Day 17 - Friday - January 17

The Crib Mattress we won arrived!
I pin it between our bed and the wall for a co-sleeping bed extension.

Day 18 - Saturday - January 18

I finally took the double-dipped Rock Candy sticks out and dumped the jars.
There were crystals growing on the glass, too!


  1. Fabulous pics Jorje! Love the crystals, and LOVE Spencer's foodie face

  2. He is so cute! I want to try the muffin tray thing but my son is so picky!

    1. It can be a great way to introduce (and re-introduce and re-introduce) new foods. :) Offer lots of variety, occasional new or usually disliked foods, and no pressure... It may become more familiar.

      And thank you!

  3. I used the muffin tins for snacks when my kids were younger, and now that they are older I use a similar idea for snacks when they have friends over..I just use larger containers. Then I leave it on the table for them to enjoy through the day.
    I love that Spencer signs! By profession, I'm a sign language interpreter, and I still spend a lot of time working with the Deaf. My kids started as babies signing and now my 11yo is quite fluent. There are so many benefits to baby signing!! Such cute pictures.

    1. I'd really like ASL to be my kids' "second language." I think its something we can enjoy learning together and practice together - more so than an actual foreign language. And it still (obviously) has potential translator career opportunities.

      We still call the Muffin Tin Snack "Monkey Platters." Its a term the kids love (even the teen) and I like the variety she's getting when I put them together... now to work in some actual vegetables!

  4. Muffin tin lunches and rock candy both sound like things we need to try! Great idea!

  5. Muffin tin lunches and rock candy both sound like things we need to try! Great idea!

  6. We tried the rock candy a couple of weeks ago but it didn't work. The top of the syrup solidified, but the stick never grew crystals. My husband thinks maybe the syrup wasn't saturated with enough sugar? I don't know whether cold temps played a role, either. I like the muffin tin lunches. I should try them with my younger son, who really hates to eat.

    Thanks for linking up to Friday Favorites!
