i'm sneaking oh so quietly onto the puter because the whole house is still sleeping. left boob is going to pop! ebin woke up every 2 hours all night and i think i fed twice on the wrong boob and then he slept from 5:30 onwards. yay for a good sleep stretch!
i still mostly pick isaac's clothes. he'll sometimes express an opinion but it is usually about which shoes he wants to wear. he sounds almost exactly like lily. he can do pants, underwear and socks but he hates shirts even though i have seen him put them on. he definitely can't get them off very easily. his thing with shoes is only wearing ones he can put on by himself at school (no laces). he had these velcro vans which i kept saying were too small but he *insisted* on wearing them despite me buying him other (cute!) shoes. so he wore those on vacation and i thought if i had time i would shop for new velcro shoes. well then he had a poop accident, stepped in it, tromped it all over the part of my mom's bathroom that has carpet...and i just threw the vans in the trash.
so then it was shoe buying under pressure. in portland i more have the problem of seeing too many things i like. in bakersfield there was ....nuthin! luckily a friend came to my rescue and gave me 2 handmedown pairs of sneakers. (both wirh laces though). then my mom bought him spiderman velcro sneaks with lights. can i just say BLECH. of course these are now the only shoes he will wear
he had seen them before and i told him they didn't have his size
now dh is up and wanting the blueberry buttermilk pancakes i said i was making this morning
my question: elsanne said she didn't keep a paper journal. does anyone? i do but write in it so sporadically. internet typing has definitely taken the place of that in so many ways.
hf - the eating, choking and growing thing made me go 'awww!' it sounds so rough. i hope you find answers. on the growing side of things let me know when he starts moving up in sizes if you ever want more clothes. i've got a bunch and i haven't gotten rid of anything yet. some part of me can't bear to!
beth - the luxurious babysitter help sounds like a GREAT treat
and i'm so glad the sickies are just run of the mill for you guys now. i bet W has changed a ton since i saw you last.
jacq - i would be *out of control* with respect to girl shopping
so fun. i saw some super cute girly eastery clothes last night. sweetness!
has anyone read jessica seinfeld's deliciously deceptive cookbook? my mom gave it to me. in the last few days i've tried pureed spinach hidden on pita pizzas, pureed cauliflower in tuna salad and then last night i made chicken tenders dipped in a mix of pureed sweet potato, pureed pineapple, coconut flakes and then breadcrumbs (aloha chicken tenders). and isaac has been eating all of it! i want to try the spinach brownies. it is totally handy for feeding ebin too!
babe is awake.
