Our Little Foodie

Today was a foodie day, or at least our new parenting version of one. First came breakfast when Ash was introduced to apples (loves'em), then on to the Gilded Otter where had two new firsts - sweet potatoes AND Otter french fries! YUM! Next was rainbow sherbet that didn't go over so well (those would be the pics of him with a not so happy grin) and then on to fun in the sandbox where we discovered that sand does not taste good. Next came Ash's first meal with all three food groups - starch (rice cereal), veggie (carrots), and fruit (bananas) which officially tested the capacity of gDiapers about 30 seconds after consumption. I suppose we'll take that as a sign that he enjoyed his dinner! We topped the day off by having the new center of the universe in bed by 6:40 (a whole 10 minutes later than last night, progress is progress!) and a civilized dinner for two on the porch. Salad with a homemade cilantro lime dressing and grilled chicken in a siracha/soy marinade. A yummy day.

Oh my goodness...he just gets cuter by the minute! And it doesn't look like mommy and daddy are having any fun at all! :) And tell me again "why is that I would want to sleep my life away when I could be having so much fun with these guys?! :) Gamma said I should have lots of fun and boy am I having lots of fun!"
Sleep tight little one - I love you!
