Things We Learned

I guess you could say we had an educational weekend.
Here are some of the new things we learned over the past few days....

- We grow rocks. lots and lots of rocks. 
if rocks were good for anything, we'd be rich.  and not just a little bit rich, really really rich.

- The little can now pull himself up on things.
Don't get excited, it's not like he's going to be a walking prodigy or anything dramatic like that,
we just had to lower his playpen so he wouldn't heave himself over the edge.
But it was an important lesson to learn, as i would never have guessed he could do it.

- When making waffles, do not clip the waffle maker shut.
It prevents those (normally) delicious, fluffy and crispy squares of breakfastness from rising.
But then I learned that if you put enough butter and syrup on anything it's gunna to taste good.

- The earlier the little goes to bed the earlier he wakes up.  dammit.

-  Farmers markets are over early.
When it takes you hours to get ready and out the door with a little one, 
it's a good idea to put him to bed early the night before, give yourself a fighting chance.

- The Hannah Dog's drool is slippery. ew.

- Haricots Verts are really just green beans.
Okay, so I knew this, but did you know they tasted yummy with rice cereal and formula?
Betcha didn't.

He is 18lbs 10 ounces (normal) & 28 inches long
(which is tall. or long.  oh whatever, it's good and he rocks)

Hope y'all had a good weekend!

We grow rocks too! Every time we do something outside it seems like there are more and more and more. It is the most annoying thing. But we found out we live in an area of town that actually used to be a river so we have all the rocks in our yard that used to be on the floor of the river... it is very helpful when trying to landscape!

P.S. I got your comment on my adoption story. I was SOOOO scared when I told my parents I wanted to look for her and then that first time we met was absolutely terrifying because what if she doesn't like you?!?!!! Lucky for me she loved me and I loved her. It was definitely to me worth all the scaredness (not a word but that's how I felt) and nervousness that I went through for it. Also if you EVER have any questions about it feel free to ask. I am very open about it and am always willing to answer questions for people. :) Have a wonderful week with that adorable little one of yours!!
