Delicious Vegan Dish of the Day:
Since I’m fighting a head cold, we had another soup for dinner tonight. This time it was lentil and orzo soup. It’s basic, but oh so good!
Today we spent the following:
- $14.84 for laundry soap
- $1.59 for cough drops at CVS
- $58.04 at Trader Joe’s
Thursday Baby Update:
Feeding IP is an adventure, no matter what we are doing. Tonight she had a regular baby smorgasbord: lentils, steamed carrot sticks and biscuit. She downed the biscuits (just like her brother) and munched on the lentils for a while, the she got cranky. After trying to show her all the goodies on her tray, I finally just put her in my lap. She was totally happy. Then, I put some of her food on the table in front of her, instead of her tray. She ate it right up! Apparently, she wanted to eat at the table like a big kid (i.e. like her brother).
However, in between bites IP decided that hitting her head on the edge of the table was a good idea. It sounded like this:
She would bonk her head, look up, smile, eat some lentils, look around, eat some more, and then . . .
She did this at least five times. I swear I heard her brain rattling around. Sometimes I’m amazed my childrens’ awesome brilliance. And sometimes I’m amazed at their stupidity. I imagine this dual amazement will continue right through adolescence.
