Well, my most recent chick hatched 8 months ago, but apparently I still can't count on her. Since her amazing performance on Tuesday, Sophie's refused all milk products packaged in sippy cups, especially when offered by yours truly. However, she is still drinking a little juice from them, and seems content to nurse just two or three times each day. Until she either A) stops having wet diapers or B) starts panting, I've decided not to worry about it and I am just enjoying the increased freedom. She is still eating baby foods voraciously, so I'm mixing formula with them to trick her into consuming a little extra milk product.
We had a wonderful dinner tonight with our friends in McMinnville, Tim and Dana and their kiddos Samuel (aged nigh-unto-4, I think) and Laura Grace. Samuel is a sweetheart but that Laura Grace is T-R-O-U-B-L-E at just under a year. Her best (but not only!) stunt was to grab a gallon pitcher full of tea off the table and throw it on the floor just before we started to eat. A gallon of tea is A LOT when running across a dining room floor, we can all attest now. Besides the tea tsunami, there was also the tea splattered - and now running down - the walls, the broken Pampered Chef pitcher, and the likelihood of ants to come. Ah, the joys of motherhood!
Oh, a bit of advice to the writers of "The Office" (who I'm sure are faithful readers of my blog): Do NOT, under any circumstances, let Pam and Jim get together. The show may be ruined. Didn't you guys see Moonlighting?
Fun at the Fair
