Road trip

These two little tinies were so excited about bedtime in the car.  Too bad they forgot that bedtime= sleeptime. They did eventually sleep (never at the same time) and we did eventually make it with our sanity mostly intact. First summer road trip….complete

7 months

I was a week late taking Amelia’s 7 month photos, and now that I’m finally posting them, it’s two weeks late. Here’s how Amelia feels about that.

AAAAaaaaaaahhhh!!

Shoo, she doesn’t scare me. I know that as long as I let her play with the calendar she’ll be just fine.

Uh oh, here come the screams again.

Ah, that looks comfy.

And now, for comparison

Can it possibly be the same baby??

What nummy eyes you have

Ah, cousins.

While they might not be quite old enough to play together yet, they’re still young enough for us to make them lay on the bed together for photo shoots. And Amelia is definitely old enough to think that she should eat Nathan.

Mmm, Nathan, your eyes wook so nummy.

And your hand wooks so nummy….

And your feets wook SO nummy!


Oh sweet cousin, eben your shirt is nummy….

cousins

Just c’mere and wets me eats you…and eberyfing will be fine.

Insert Clever Title Here

I have so much and yet so little to say.

I’ve been fighting with our printer for two days. When Mama says print, she means print! Don’t make me come over there and plug the computer in with the USB! That defeats the whole purpose of wireless printing. UGH.

The Etsy shops are staying busy. We’re sponsors over at Under the Sycamore this month. I may have been obsessed with that blog and all its great DIY projects for a little while before the munchkin was born. But I can neither confirm nor deny. Anyway, our little shop is featured over there this month and we are excited!

Amelia met her cousin Nathan today. You’d think that I’d have all kinds of cute photos to share, but alas; I always choke under pressure and forget to get the camera out. Plus, I was busy trying to get my little Mama’s girl to let her Aunt & Uncle hold her. She’s going through an “All Mama, All the Time” phase, so a weekend with her grandparents and aunts and uncles in town should be all smiles for her. Or not. She did much better with everyone after she had a little nap and time to adjust her attitude, so here’s hoping a good night’s sleep cures her of what ails her.

And on that note, I’m off to get my own good night’s sleep. Until 12:30am, when my little sidekick will decide she needs me. It’s tough being a Mama’s girl.

Baby Food

Mmmmm….pears.

Is it bad that I want to steal food from my 7 month old daughter? It can’t be bad, can it? Those pears are just so good!

Making baby food really isn’t that bad when it turns out so good. Pear puree = delicious. Who knew that pears cooked in a little water and then blended up could be so so nummy? Babies, that’s who.

Carrots get the same treatment. Also good. Roasted sweet potatoes pureed with a little water? Yes, please. Although I’m afraid I must revert to my childhood ways and say, “Dem peas is nasty. Bleck.”

My Gramma Jane got me this great “how-to” baby food book.

And even if the basic recipes are just “cook veggie, puree with water” it has some great big kid recipes too. Not sure I’ll be making “pan-roasted salmon  with lentils, rice, french beans, and spinach pesto” anytime soon…but hey, a girl can dream, right?

If you’re not making your own baby food, good for you. You may actually have some free time to take a shower. If you are making your own baby, even good-er for you. Just make sure you don’t eat it all.
