My kids are giving me brain damage. 99% of the week I have no idea what day it is, and 100% of the week I don’t know what the date is.
Here’s some random stuff from my week.
Bennett thinks it’s super funny to eat dinner like this in his high chair. He’ll lay like that for like a minute and then come up and laugh and then lay down again. Normal… I have totally normal kids.
This is Bennett enjoying a piece of his very first apple fritter. Questionable feeding? Yes. Whatever world, I know what I am (and he really loved it). Also, Harrison can’t eat ANYTHING fun with his allergies, so this whole experience of giving like actual real world food to a baby is so exciting and Fun.
I stopped at a drive thru for lunch after a meeting. I was like using gps on my phone and driving and eating… and that’s probably all I have to say about this. I call this piece “The Saddest Big Mac” also known as “Still Ate It”.
This tiny delicious treat is so good, it totally blew my mind. I am like very neutral when it comes to ice cream, but this thing is just so cute and so tasty. I’m pretty sure this is what I would look like if I were a dessert – a mini ice cream cone with rainbow sprinkles and a surprise filling, so complex yet super vanilla at the same time. I’m telling you my palate is sophisticated these days.
On Thursday, Harrison asked me, “Mama, what are alligators made of?” I think that’s actually a good question considering how hard it was to answer clearly.
Bennett is getting his third tooth. He’s not nearly as cranky as Harrison was when he was teething, but the drool, OMG. I actually think that Bennett is able to cope better with the discomfort because he sucks his thumb and it’s like his security and comfort thing to do, Harrison never had anything like that. Now he has his blanket, but it took like a solid 2 years before he even really started to develop that.
The daycare/school that my kids go to just let us know that there are new regulations for the infant room starting in August. The state is no longer allowing the warming of bottles in any form except for running them under warm water, which is completely inefficient for everyone. I’m so glad that Bennett will be out of the bottle stage by then, that’s absolutely ridiculous.
I went out for dinner last night with a friend, and it was probably only the second or third time that I’ve gone out to dinner without Abe since I had Bennett 11 1/2 months ago. That’s like crazy right? Well it was really good to get out and it was really good to eat a meal that I didn’t slap together in a hurry! I think that Most of the meals this week were just like barely something you would call an actual meal, my poor family.
