Deadlines Update (and a double Cookbook Giveaway – CLOSED)

So I thought I’d give you a quick update on some very important deadlines. (And read closely…there’s a giveaway at stake!)

The cookbook manuscript is due July 1.

It is almost finished. I will spend some time this week, adding some last minute finesse. There is not a doubt in my mind that I’ll get it to my editor by my deadline…if not early.

But that other deadline still looms.

It is fast approaching. I’ll show you.

Hey Mom, check it out. I’m up on all fours. (Said in a mocking baby tone.)

Now watch this Mom…I can rock back and forth too. (He’s totally mocking me now.)

(And that’s just all mocking there.)

So far, so good.  Not crawling yet. But he wants too…badly…as you can see by the look on his face.  Little stinker!

What do you think?!?  Will he be crawling by July 1st?!

To make this fun…I’ll be giving away a copy of The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook AND a copy of The $5 Dinner Mom’s Breakfast and Lunch Cookbook (when it comes out) to the person who guesses the closest time and date that Tyler will start crawling.

Definition of first time crawling: Moving arms and legs in such a way to move him forward (not backwards!).

Only 1 entry per person please.

Entries will be closed on Wednesday, June 23rd at 9 am EST. Entries closed.

Winner announced after Tyler starts crawling!

What’s your guess?!? When will Tyler start crawling!?!

    He is so close (and so cute)! I think he’ll defintiely be crawling by the 1st. I’m going to predict June 23rd at 3:45 p.m.

    July 3rd, 8:58 a.m.

    My little boy is only 4 months old, so seeing your son up on all fours gives me goosebumps!

    I have had fun reading your blog for the last year or so. You have great ideas and your ‘food’ philosophy very much mirrors my own. And, I also have 3 little boys – all around the same ages as your boys. My littlest has also been up on all fours…but he does this “get up on all fours, rock forward, bring one leg forward, then use both arms to thrust forward” move. I don’t know if that qualifies as crawling…all I know is that he’s all over the living room floor! So, for Tyler, I’d say June 25 at 1040am! (You know he’s only trying to keep up with the other boys!!) 😉
