I am wondering when I will have the time and energy to post all the things I think about posting. Will that day come? Will it come soon?

Andrew is sleeping better during the day. Yea!! This is despite yet another ear infection, which is requiring his seventh antibiotic. Yep. You read that right. I see tubes in his future.

Aaron has hit a whining stage. I don't think he remembers any longer how to speak in a normal tone of voice. This makes me wonder what his teenage years will sound like...

Ethan fell off the top bunk two days ago. I don't think I will ever get that image out of my head. I saw it happen. ::shudders:: He swears he will never go up there again. I am giving him until next week.

Andrew is eating more and more foods! He now has eaten avocado, banana, rice cereal, plums, pears, and peaches. (In that order) He loves eating solids. He loves eating. Period.

I led a seminar at my church for a women's event today. There were three seminars to choose from, fewer than thirty women in attendance, and only three chose mine. It made me a bit sad to have so few, but mine was a crafty option and the others were practical/spiritual. I'm trying not to take it personally. :) I led the women who came through the Patchwork Card Tutorial from Craft Apple. I've made these lots before and it is so fun and easy. The women who came had fun. They went on and on when we got back together as a big group, showing off their goods. That made me feel good. Other women said, "Ooh, how cute!" "How did you do that?" and "I want to learn how to do that!" That made me feel good, too.

Have you made the Glazed Lemon Cookies from p. 142 of May's issue of Everyday Food? You really need to make these. (she says while licking her lips) I took them to the seminars today and women openly drooled over them and went for seconds and asked for the recipe. That made me feel good, too.

That's all I got, folks!

I'm drooling over your seminar and your cookies, too.

I can't believe all the infections for Andrew!!! Poor little guy. When I first read that you were feeding Andrew solids I saw a baby about the age of Anna and I almost came through the computer to shake you and ask what you were feeding so many solids to a 3-month-old for. And then I realized that he's nearly two months older than Anna. Duh. Haha.

Poor Ethan!!!!!

Yeah, I started Andrew on solids at 5 months. I usually like to wait until 6 months, but he was clearly hungry. Every time we would eat something while holding him, he would lean forward with his mouth open and his eyes wide! It was cute - you could tell he wanted it so badly!

Joanna said...

If it makes you feel any better, I TOTALLY would have gone to your seminar. I mean spiritual smiritual, I'd rather make cards!

Poor Andrew :(

Your cookies sound yum! Kevin told me I needed to start making lemon bars from scratch after he ate yours ;) hehe I bet your lemon cookies were just as awesome!
