Josiah has started eating a little rice cereal at lunch and dinner. He likes it until he starts to fear that it is replacing his good ol’ standard milk fare. I keep telling him there is a whole wide world of food out there but he’s a little too attached to just his milk to make any life-altering changes. I keep telling him we’re doing it by degrees, but he’s not so sure yet.
Here is a sweet video of Josiah and Asher
playing doing pushups today. I think Josiah found his new personal trainer, since Asher was really giving it to him! Today was the first time they really studied each other and their reactions were priceless! When they first faced each other, they both started grunting and shaking from the inside. It was really cute until Josiah started crying.
This post makes me want to get a coffee press. We’re slowly moving into a more refined coffee world, but I dont ever think I’ll be able to drink a cup of joe without sugar and milk. Sure you can, but why would you?
After Dirk and I tried out making our own tortillas tonight(yumm, call us if you want to go halvsies on homemade fajitas!), I found this article about other things you can make at home. I’m excited to see what I can do myself! (I think I’m going to start light, like maybe a solar power panel or a backyard shed–oh!–maybe a windmill…)
Look at my pretty bread! Its much better than the one made in the bread machine (I’m sure that the fact it was white instead of wheat had nothing to do with it).
After reading a really interesting article about CSAs (Community Based Agriculture) in the Chronicle, I started readin1g up on fresh produce and I really want to check out a farmer’s market like this one. Let me know if you want to go!
Attention Robin, Jamie and Bethany: I think I found my hobby: baking! I know its not really conducive to dropping maternity weight, but just think, “Man, Josiah’s mom makes the best [insert baked good here]!” Needless to say, Dirk is very supportive of this “useful” pastime.
Dirk started back to work this week. He’s–naturally–not excited about getting back to the grind, but he gets to teach health this year! Dirk has big plans to actually teach health, so look out kids!
Thats about all for now, I can’t think of any other big or little news to bring you. Until next time….
