In baby news... after my co-op run I'm stocked up on veggies and fruit and have decided to make Syd some home-made baby food, something I often did for Sam too. This may be a huge mistake as so far she hasn't taken to ANY food. I thought she was ready for food because, well, she's almost 7 months old and she has been eyeing the food on my plate for quite some time! But every time I give her baby food she spits it right back out. I don't know if she doesn't like it or if she's not ready. I've tried rice cereal, pears, and avocado. I had the best luck with the avocado. But even when she has eaten food, it only came back up a half hour later. *sigh*
Anyway, thought I'd pass along a great site for making your own baby food! It's much easier than you'd think. Just whip it up in a blender and freeze in old glass baby food jars or ice cube trays (to be later stored in freezer bags once frozen).
And a few Sam-isms to share:
Anytime he's too little for something I tend to say, "That's for adults only." Well this morning he said to me, "Mom, I'm an adult; you can be a little boy."
As I was putting sunscreen on him today he said, "Don't frost me like a cake!"
His little imagination just blows me away. I certainly didn't pass down that trait.
