Ollie joined his first club ...The Cookie Club!

I broke down... I let him do it... have it... eat it...

ME: "Here you go buddy! Your first grocery store cookie!"
Ollie:
That lady loves me. I killing her. Awesomeness. Mom leave me alone.



Ollie: Fine!  Give me the thing.  What is it again?
ME: It's a cookie, take a bite, you are going to love it!

Ollie:  Yeah, I'm going back to killing the chicks.
They are loving the Ollie show!
ME: Come on dude, eat the cookie!

Ollie: Awe shoo, it's a little girl. She's cute too.
Time to rock out some more Ollie show...
Me: Mmmmmm Cookie!!!  EAT IT!
Ollie: Whatever, I'm going to break it and smash it...
that will impress the little girl!
ME:  EAT IT!

Ollie:  Fine!
ME: Mmmmm. Yummy right? I told you so.
Ollie: What's the big deal? Awe man, the little girl got away!

OK. First of all, what kind of a kid doesn't like cookies?!  He crumbled it up and threw it down a second later.  I thought I was going to score awesome mom points.  Not so much...

Second, is it me, or is my boy advanced for 10-months?  What happen to the baby era?  At 10-months, he's now taking one step on his own, babbling his brains out, smashing toys and throwing Tonka Trucks!  And now, he is now an official member of the cookie club. Maybe the cookie club thing was me getting him into it too early, but other than that, I feel like he is growing up way too fast. He refuses to sit in my lap or cuddle unless he is nursing or asleep. HE doesn't like being held at all. He even pushes away from me at stores.... He is crazy!   Please someone, tell me he will change and let me cuddle and hold him again!

How can he be so big and brave already? I thought babies stayed babies longer than 10 months.  How can it be that by 10-months old my baby is showing his independence, playing fine by himself, lifting heavy toys to put them on the coffee table to play with while standing up, eating whole chicken breasts, and even bumping his head without crying.  It's not right!  I want my baby.  I carried him longer in my belly, than I can carry him in my arms.  That's just not right! Not on any level!  NOT RIGHT! WHAAAAAA!

I digress...

We joined the cookie club.  He was not interested. I only cried a little.  Happy Friday!

I'm not seeing any chocolate chips in that cookie. Could explain things....

You've got an old soul. I can tell. (;

Naw welcome to the cookie club! Isaiah joined a little while back with gingernuts (please tell me you've tried them - they got me through most of my pregnancy when nothing else would stay down).
He tried cake last weekend at his bestie's birthday - his response was very enthusiastic to say the least!

Gorgeous photos btw, you should be so proud - Ollie is unbelievably cute!

LOL- happy cookie club! I am not an advocate of pushing sugar into my child- HOWEVER- it is much better to have a happy sugar-filled baby walking around the store than a screaming, cranky, bored, one. Just my opinion. Chase however will devour it if it's even remotely something he deems edible. Ollie's just trying to impress you- not the chicks- he wants to show you how big he is, and how much you've taught him!

I was so excited the first time I gave B something sweet, "like welcome to the good life kid!!" He reacted exactly the same. Could not have cared less. He's really more of a salty food/fatty food guy which I can't relate to at all. Disappointing.

Seriously, nobody tells you that your baby will want to get away from you and walk and run and do stuff so early. The snuggling does not last long enough. I think he might like chocolate cookies better...I know I do.

How do I get into the cookie club?!?!?!?!?!? Watch this. Trust me. http://youtu.be/-qTIGg3I5y8 I put it on my blog a couple months ago. I'm obsessed.

They do grow up fast, but don't feel bad though about the whole cookie club. He may never like cookies. NEVER! Sorry for yelling, but really never. I remember when my daughter told me she didn't like chocolate she was like 3. I was like what the cuss? Now she's 15 and she still hates chocolate, but the upside is, there's more for me. Every Halloween I have a feast of Twix, Snickers, Milky Way, you name it, if it has chocolate she will not eat it. Oh well. There's always Skittles. LOL

so true!! my baby is already a boy too in too many ways.

This is too funny! My baby boy is only 3 months old and I'm already not looking forward to the times when he would rather run away from me then for me to hold him and love all over him. Why don't they tell you these things when you decide to have children?
BTW, Ollie is the cutest little guy, and he surely missed out on that cookie!

Alissa said...

Ollie is so cute!!! I agree... the boy wants chocolate... We introduced James to the cake and ice cream club.... He LOVES ice cream.

awww!! Cute little girls were more interesting than a plain old cookie!! :P
Oh, boys are like that...they don't like being held but don't worry, he'll come out of it! Or maybe you can establish that he has to get smooshed by you before he can resume play!! :))
