My own personal blah, blah, blah...

Oh my god, I know, I know! I've been completely M.I.A.! I'm so sorry. Hmmm...what's been going on?

Well, we had a sick baby for the first time. Not fun, not fun at all!! It was an experience but at least we got through it and know how to deal with it for next time! There is nothing more pathetic and sad than a sick baby. Trying to guess what they're feeling and what they need is almost impossible and all you want is for them to feel better. Then, after the babe got sick, I got it, then the hubby got it. It was no fun in our house!

I have started making the baby's food. I never thought I would but I started reading things and even though I've been feeding him organic baby food I just feel like I can do a better job feeding my kid than anyone else. SO, I went out and bought a whole bunch of produce and meats and got to work. I cooked, I boiled, I steamed and I blended, I froze things and Ta Da! I made a shit ton of baby food! And it's deelish, if I do say so myself! I made chicken dishes, beef dishes, salmon dishes, veggies and fruits. I added spices (not salt), but many spices, to get my little monkey used to eating good food and in the hopes that he will not become a picky eater in the future if he's exposed to the kinds of spices we like in our food now. He has been enjoying all of it and that makes me so happy! Here is a shot of him enjoying his Apple/Blueberry/Banana breakfast one morning:

I can't believe how big my little man is getting! He is 8 months old and I just can't even believe it. It seems like just yesterday he was born, and at the same time, I can't remember life without him! He is just too cute. He's blabbing away, saying "mama" and "dada" and "baba". He has started waving and trying to say "bye bye". He is so on the verge of crawling. He just can't get moving forward. He has the backward motion mastered but that is not the direction he really wants to go. It's truly amazing how they change.

Here he is enjoying a beer with Mommy and Daddy:

We are taking our first family trip on Friday, by plane! We're going to Florida for a long weekend and I am nervous and worried and just hope we can be organized enough not to screw it all up! I hope he doesn't cry and disturb the whole plane. I hope he doesn't have a lot of issues with his ears. I hope we have everything we need, I hope we don't forget anything or bring too much. Oh my god, this is stressful, BUT I am anal and I'm a planner so I think we'll be okay. We're just gonna get to the airport 6 hours early to be safe! Anyway, Sorry I've been so M.I.A. Work has really been busy and I guess life has been too. Sick baby = severe sleep deprivation so there has been nothing on my mind but work and home to take care of the fam. I am going to check in on everyone now. I haven't looked at anyone's blogs in SO LONG!

Hope you're all well! XOXO

    He is such a doll!

    Good for you in making your own baby food. I started out doing the jars but liked making my own better as well. I don't think I ever went EXCLUSIVELY homemade but I made most of it.

    I hope you have a great trip!

    Dear MIA Funky Bee,
    If K gets ANY cuter, I'll have to reach into the computer pluck him out and squeeze him, right before I eat him.
    I can't believe how big he's gotten.
    He's perfect.

    That's all for now.

    Love, Sassy
