All About Me
Dawn - edging ever closer to 30, although I still feel like I'm 21. :) I'm married to a youth pastor ('Big G'), and have THREE wonderful kids: a five year-old son ('Little G'), a just turned two year-old daughter ('A'), and our newest little girl blessing, Baby R, was born May 28/07!! They keep me hopping as I juggle them, my WAH part-time job as an accountant, being a pastor's wife, and of course hobbies like quilting, scrapbooking, and blogging!

The 'Cheerios Stage'
I think I've discovered a new stage in infant development. We all know about the newborn stage, where the child is helpless and entirely dependent on its parents, and the sitting-up stage, the crawling stage, the pulling-up-on-anything-and-everything stage, and then of course the walking stage.

But somewhere in the middle of all this is a very distinct and separate stage that I think deserves its own mention: The Cheerios Stage.

At our house we are firmly in the middle of this stage. All of A's clothes go in the hamper at night with Cheerios mush across the front. We don't go anywhere without the trusty little Tupperware container of Cheerios in the diaper bag. Every piece of equipment of hers (highchair, exersaucer, and I wouldn't be surprised if the crib and change table too) has crusty little bits of old Cheerios in all the nooks and crannies. I keep having to stop and peel little Cheerios crumbs off my feet that have flaked off of her clothes as they dry.

We're definitely in the Cheerios stage.
