I had intended to show a picture or two of Garrett’s first taste of bananas from today, but after taking the camera upstairs to print off some pictures, I accidentally left it there and am waaaaay too lazy to get up and go get it. Plus, I am in bed. I wish I had my laptop set to share the upstairs’ computer’s files- but again, I am too lazy to have something that elaborate set up.

So, yes Garrett had a banana today. It wasn’t planned by any means- I actually was going to go with pears next. Garrett had other plans. I was carrying him around the house with me this morning, when around 11, I decided I was going to grab a banana to eat before they became too ripe. (FYI, organic bananas not only TASTE sooooo much better, they take longer to ripen.)  So, there I was peeling the banana back, when little piggy literally grabs the top of it. He managed to help me break it off and drop half of it in the floor, too.

Anyway, I figured since we have a bunch of bananas we should go ahead and introduce these to him. Plus, I am pretty positive it will be asked in a couple of weeks when we go home, whether or not he has had bananas and if I say no, I will have to explain why. Which really there never WAS a reason why he hasn’t had them, other than my doctor recommended starting rice cereal and veggies first. I agreed that I thought veggies were better to introduce first- as the theory goes, it can help them to establish a liking for veggies later in life.  We shall see if it holds any truth. Or you may hear me in twenty years, “Now Garrett, you know those peas were one of your first foods and favorites I might add…you really should eat more veggies. Mommy knows best.” Let’s hope not, though.

My Sweet Potato Pie!

My Sweet Potato Pie!

 Just a bit more rambling and I will be done….I do have a few pictures I can substitute for the banana session that I have from his adventures with sweet potatoes. These are from about 2 weeks ago and I think this is the first time he tried them, too! My piggy loves him some sweet potatoes!

Of course, he seemed to really dig the banana, too. He was actually sounding out ”yummm.” He ended up eating about a quarter of a small one, all smashed up. I also let him play with a piece to help build on his hand coordination and to help him get the idea of what different foods feel like. I can’t wait to post those pictures. But, again I can wait at least a few days, my bed is pretty darn comfy.

 

Polishing off the jar.

Garrett has now had rice cereal, oatmeal cereal, avocados, peas, sweet potatoes, green beans and bananas. Wow!! That’s a whole lot of food! I’m interested in seeing if he has gained more that the normal. I don’t think he has though even though he still nurses 8 or so times a day, I’m sure he has reduced his milk intake. Who knows though, maybe he is really big. We go next week for his checkup, I am taking a wild guess that he is 18, maybe 18 and 1/2 pounds. Anyone care to take a guess? Wait HOLD THAT THOUGH….I have an idea for a FUTURE post!!

All ready to visit Daddy!

All ready to visit Daddy!

Daddy must be a proud papa. His son is officially a Bob Dylan fan. Bryan would say, “Well, yauh…that’s my son.” But, of course I had to confirm this tid bit of information. Tonight on our way back from eating at his daddy’s restaurant, Garrett fell right to sleep while listening to Bob Dylan. He had been very upset and tired when we put him in his carseat for the 20 minute ride home. Earlier this week, Bryan had mentioned that he hums and babbles while hearing Bob Dylan sing. So in an attempt to calm him down, I turned the radio off and turned the cd player back on and to Bob Dylan. Once ‘Like a Rolling Stone’ came on, his crying turned to babbling and within minutes he was fast asleep. It was amazing. Thinking back, Bryan did play Bob Dylan on our drive home from the hospital when Garrett was only a few days old…perhaps, he remembers it? It’s nice to add to his love of music. He really seems to enjoy all types of music and sounds, but I have to admit Bob is the first to sooth him other than classical. Who would have ever thunk it? It isn’t really a surprise that he’s digging it, as both Bryan and I are music lovers to the core.

Supervising laundry duties

Supervising laundry duties

I’ve been so off course for the last week or so concerning days. I literally thought it was Monday on Thursday. I blame Bryan for that one, as his work schedule has changed up once again. It never fails to change once I have become comfortable in our routines. So, not much is new- other than I did add some items to my other pages, if you haven’t had the chance you should check them out. I haven’t finished proof-reading (because I hate doing it) so bare with any mistakes for the time being. As my time is a bit stretched these days. I did add pictures, a favorite books link, a milestones link, and a baby food diary to the Baby G tab- if anyone is interested. I am always curious to see what others are doing, reading, eating….yes, I’m a nosey person.

What? Was I supposed to be helping?

What? Was I supposed to be helping?

What else? Oh yes, I have that Etsy shop up and running, there’s a link to the right, one here and one on my Mommy’s Imagination page- which I am trying to include a snapshot of what’s for sale. No luck yet, I can’t seem to figure that out. All in due time, my dear Watson. There’s nothing really magical in it, just some fun I’ve painted for Garrett and friends. I do plan to add a few more things in the coming weeks, so keep looking. Time is the biggest factor. Technically, I should be sleeping right now since I have been a bit late for work this week.

Ahh, and I have a dermatologist appointment tomorrow afternoon to figure out if I had an allergic reaction or not. I have a few theories, so we’ll see what the ol’ doc has to say first. It’s starting to heal and I actually feel as if my skin is getting back to normal, I gave myself the equivelent of a chemical peel, minus the chemical. I used baking soda and apple cider vinegar. I know you readers probably think I am bonkers- but it dried it up nice and quickly, plus it was all natural. Thanks for those prayers, I don’t think I could have made it through the weekend without them. Anyway, more on all that tomorrow.

Did ya notice that? I threw in my Tuesday pictures AND gave an update.

I might just be the laziest blogger, eva, eva. And the laziest at putting clothes away, but come-on who even noticed that?

Picture Perfect.

A tad bit late…here’s Tuesday’s picture.

This was taken after church a couple weeks ago. The baby pictured was absolutely fabulous during the service. What can I say? He is my baby. Only kidding. I mean he is my baby and all, oh you know what I mean!

Two for Tuesday

We did it. We fed the little man his first solid foods. Yup, I said it. So go ahead and flame me now.

Wanna know what his first tastes, were? Avocados. In all honesty, he has actually been eating rice cereal for about 2 weeks now. I know, but listen he was ready…sometimes ya just know. If you don’t believe me just take a closer look at that face. Of course, it looks like most of it landed everywhere except in his mouth. Hey, it’s the experience that counts. Up next, oatmeal cereal.
