Dearest Son, Today you are sixteen months old. It is so hard for me to believe that this much time has passed since your birth; it has flown by so quickly! I think the best way to sum you up is by quoting what a grandmother at the playground said to me today: “You certainly… Continue reading 16 Months Old
I have planned menus for a while now. But I like how this girl thinks. Maybe “girl” is offensive. I like how this woman thinks!!! Go here – you can get her February meal plan FOR FREE!! I downloaded it. It looks yummy & easy. And it might take some frustration out of what’s for… Continue reading What’s For Dinner?
At Thanksgiving, my father referred to me as his “hippie daughter who makes her own baby food.” I’m okay with that, actually. I know my son is receiving good food prepared with love (ever read “The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake”?). I know what exactly he is eating, and more importantly, what exactly he isn’t… Continue reading I’m a Hippie?!
In the past two days, my heart has stopped twice. Now, I realize we are raising a boy. And he is ALL BOY. So yesterday, we decided to take advantage of the strange 70 degree weather here in Indiana. We trek to the zoo. All is going well…we’re there…we’re stationed by the duck pond. Little… Continue reading Heart Stoppers!
It is way hot where we live. Like over 100 degrees plus 1000 percent humidity. It’s nasty. I even tried the library yesterday as a change of scenery place for Little Man to play, and it was hot. Yuck. So, today, you get a post of random tidbits: * I’m reading “The Help.” It’s disturbing… Continue reading It’s Hot
Holy cannoli my little man is six months old. Where has the time gone? The six months before the adoptin dragged on forever…these past six months have practically given me whiplash!! First, an update of sorts, on my last post. It’s not my church friends/small group who have let me down. They have been nothing… Continue reading Six Months
Yesterday we tried squash. Or, squished, as my husband kept calling it. His reasoning? It had been squashed already…isn’t he so funny? Anyway… A friend recommended I spice the squash before I froze it. I declined. I decided I didn’t want to spice a whole batch. I can spice individual servings, should I so choose.… Continue reading Squashed
Thanks so much for the comments on the last post! I especially appreciate BethGo’s comment about starting solids. I am “going with my gut” now 🙂 So…our first adventure into veggies was peas. Sissy – do NOT buy a special baby food gadget. I totally thought I wanted one, but then couldn’t afford one. Here… Continue reading Whirled Peas
I’m only writing this (and posting it) because I wish I had been able to read someone else’s experience!! So…at LM’s four month appointment, his pediatrician said he was eating too much formula. I didn’t even know that was possible, but he was pretty darn close to 40 ounces a day. She said time to… Continue reading Feeding the Boy
