One Bad Apple Spoils the Barrel

Wesley looks just like Larry here


Grandpa is such a bad influence on Wesley. Wesley was happily playing in his chair while I was finishing up some thank you notes and then grandpa came to the table with an apple. Wesley has become very interested in food and wanted to try some of grandpa’s apple and grandpa abided. Since it was too cute to watch, I allowed it.

Yummy Yummy Yummy I’ve Got Rice in My Tummy

Wesley had his four month check up this week. He is charting between the 5th and 10th percentile (on the small side) weighing in at 11.14 pounds and almost 25 inches. He also received his next set of shots and didn’t cry for too long afterward. The doctor said that I could start rice cereal and then baby food. I was very excited at this news. Recently, Wesley has been showing great interest in real food and was looking at me like, “where’s mine!?!” whenever I was eating. Hopefully now he will sleep through the night again since for the past few weeks he has been waking up every four to five hours hungry.

After the move, we decided that today was the perfect day to see if Wesley likes eating rice cereal with a spoon! The doctor said that it may take a few tries before he gets the hang of eating with a spoon, but that was not case. He ate all of the cereal and didn’t spit too much of it back out.

"A Few Household Chemicals in the Proper Proportions"

Thanks to all those who gave suggestions for getting the blue ink out of my carpet. The Queen of Clean really knows her stuff. Although you would think hairspray and alcohol is a weird combination, they did work together. I was able to get some of the ink out, but not nearly enough to make the carpet look ok. So I came to the conclusion that the only way to get rid of the blue was to stain the carpet a new color…hello bleach! Moral of the story, don’t wait seven months to remove a stain.
