Sweet Potatoes

I don't really have much to report. I'm sick. Yesterday my RyRy turned 29. He's looking so handsome and George Clooney-like these days with all the gray hair--I really do love it. I, on the other hand, pull mine out one-by-one with tweezers because I don't ever want him to say I'm looking so Diane Keaton-like with my grays, it's just not the same for women.


Anyway, onto my title topic. After giving Maize a break from solids for awhile (she just wouldn't eat them) I offered her/stuffed her mouth with sweet potatoes this afternoon. She did okay and I'd say that about half of what was given to her was actually digested, which is a much better ratio than previous attempts. I took photos and a really boring video and I'll post them on here for everyone to see. She also started drinking juice. We have to give her juice to help with her constipation and at first she wouldn't take it, but now she'll drink it without much fuss. She really likes pear juice. It makes me happy that she's starting to slightly open up to trying new foods--it's time!

Here is a funny little anecdote. We realized today that Ryan weighs 100lbs more than me. I can't tell you how good that makes me feel. I think I can safely say that I don't have to ever worry about my husband weighing less than me. I think this is coming off wrong. What I'm trying to say is: he looks great and I've lost all the baby weight. These are both 2 very good things.


I'm outta here. I'm going to go eat my 3rd bowl of cocoa krispies and watch my 3rd movie of the day (too bad it's another one of Ryan's random foreign flicks, I think this one is called The Edge of Heaven), total indulgence is the only thing that makes being sick worth while...

Things got a little messy today...
Mmm
Messy and recovering. I had to clean sweet potatoes out of her neck folds...

Here she is in her new hand-me-downs. Shorts are courtesy of Ari and new Babylegs and onesie are courtesy of Abby!


This is her new favorite book.



Boring video. But still cute if you've got 1.5 minutes to kill.
