Bob plants a vegetable garden every year and every year we have more veggies that two people (four to six if you include the veggies we give to the in laws) can eat. This year, however, the Little Man is with us and in a few months will start on "solids" (though why they call mush "solids" I don't know), so I decided to turn some of the veggies into baby food. Last night I steamed, pureed and froze a dozen string bean servings. Today I turned two zucchini squashes into 32 servings of baby food. Of course I did a taste test...not bad if I do say so myself. Here's a before and after picture of the zucchinis.
We also are growing butternut squash and eggplants this summer which will be turned into baby food and if the crop is anything like a few years ago, Evan will be eating butternut squash and eggplant until he's 5.
Yesterday I had to run to the DMV and I didn't want to take Evan because of all of the people that would be there. So Evan's grandma and grandpa came to visit. I was gone for nearly 3 hours before I got home. It was the longest I'd ever been away from Evan. I can't believe how much I missed him. All I did for about half an hour (okay more like an hour), after my in-laws left, was hug him. Afterwards, I sang him his ABCs and he seemed to enjoy that. Here is proof.
This morning Evan was having tummy time on Bob's chest when he has projectile spit up all over Bob's shirt (narrowly avoiding Bob's face). It was kind of funny (especially Bob's reaction).
Bob is working tonight, so the boys are getting some snuggling in. Here they are hanging out in the back yard.
