Cheerios Giveaway & Milestones Contest (Sam’s 1st Birthday – How Stinkin’ Cute is He?)

Published by on

As you can imagine, with four kids we’ve seen a whole lot of milestones come and go here in Mommyknowsville. Georgia’s especially, are fresh in my memory, and many of them blogged never to be forgotten. When I was first asked to blog about one of the kid’s milestones to help promote the Cheerios Milestones Contest, I immediately thought about the most recent (Georgia’s first day of kindergarten), but realized we’ve been there and done that on this blog. Then it dawned on me, *Sam is my cereal lover!* – He is a tried and true Honey Nut Cheerios fanatic! I decided I’d share one of his milestones.

Then my heart sank a wee bit, because Sam’s milestones are often a blur to me (it makes me sad). This little man came just 14 months after his sister and just weeks before the launch of my ‘ex-business’ (dear GOD, what was I thinking? The business NOT Sam!). A good portion of his babyhood has been erased by ‘sleep-deprivation induced amnesia’ (I made that up, but it’s a real affliction!). Two babies, a new business, no sleep means –> I have to ask Mr. MK about Sam as a baby.

However, I knew that somewhere I had a photo of his first birthday (I do remember it), and that it must be shared. It took a while, but I finally found a folder dated June 2001 and BINGO …

Bubbles … I remember blowing these until they were gone and then both of them crying for more! I do remember the crying … there was a lot of crying (I’ve managed to get myself under control though — HA!)

I’d have to say that Cheerios was the perfect snack for my 3 kids. One of the #1 worries with the snack foods for little ones is choking, and with Cheerios, no worries. First, there’s the big hole in the middle, and second, it goes soft after gumming and gooing it for a few seconds. Perfect! And, you’re right, Sam is pretty stinkin’ cute!
