Of the interwebs kind.

Sometime this weekend, we passed 20,000 page views. 

In just over a year, that means that there are a crazy amount of friends and relatives checking in on the every day doings of our boring lifes.

Either that or strangers googling such gems as "jack russells and jack hammers" and "all palmetto all the time", "what the heck do I do when the baby gets here", "3rd trimester panic", "will my dog eat my baby". and my personal favorite: "is my baby a dinosaur".

Whoever you are, welcome. 

Let the wild rumpus continue.

A Confession

I confess.

The inability to breastfeed bothers the crap out of me.

I don't carry around the guilt that I had for months.  And I can't say that I'd still be doing it if I were able.  But not being able to?  Sucked.

So whats a type-A-why-isn't-this-working-what-else-can-I-do Mom to do? 

Why, homemade baby food of course!

Again with the why.  Um... I'm not sure other than it makes me feel like I'm doing SOMETHING.  I can't say it saves a ton of money.  And it certainly isn't as easy as popping open a jar of Earth's Best...  But at the end of the day, it's not all that hard. 

Cook the heck out of some veggies and fruits.  Puree.  Add oatmeal or baby cereal if you pureed too much.  Freeze.  Voila. 

Guilt rectified.

Kind of.

The real confession? 

I send the homemade food to school so everyone can be impressed with me and use Earth's Best at home.

I'm going to parenting hell.

One recent weekend hours' handiwork:


Kid tested.  Robbie approved.

Great Day in DC

We had a wonderful day today.  The weather was close to perfect.

We took Robbie to a wonderful playground (unfortunately not in our neighborhood) where he got to do some cool things for the first time.  He took to the swing like he was born for it - HUGE smiles.  Then we went on to the slides and last but not least we got on the seesaw (teeter totter to you Yankees).  He liked them all A LOT.

We got back to the house and got some stuff taken care of and then took Daisy and Robbie out for a walk around the neighborhood.

Finished the day with giving Robbie his bath.  He is starting to really enjoy bath time.
