the one where I talk about hair

I have never been one to care a whole lot about my hair. That's probably been pretty obvious to most people who know me. I have fine, thin-ish hair. It never does what I want it to do. So when I was pregnant it got a little thicker, and that seemed great. And then about 3 months after I had this adorable child it started to fall out. And I don't just mean shedding, it fell OUT. In clumps. And ropes, and piles, and plugged the drain. And then it stopped. But I was left with an Itty-Bitty pony-tail, and little baby hairs growing in all over the place. Great story, huh? You can see that here.
So the moral of this post is that now it is gone. I got it all evened up tonight. So my hair is CRAZY short. Shorter than I've ever had. I'm a little shell-shocked about it. I was going to try to post a picture, but I don't even think I can take one tonight... But I wanted to mention it, because some day I will look back on this and think boy, was I brave. And here's the evidence.
(I will put up a picture here at some point.)

In our hotel in Steven's Point. We're all here for Eric's sister's wedding.


7 months old

I just have to point out here, that my son seems to have lost his wrists. If you've seen them, let us know. I think his forearms may have gobbled them up...

Doesn't really seem to mind though, does he?


we're in trouble

sitting up!!
This is The Little sitting up. He is also rolling to and fro across the floor, and roll/scooting back and forth to reach things. Cute? Yes. Frightening? Totally.


cooking for three

I've been making a bunch of food for the little one lately. He's a pretty adventurous eater. The only thing he has flat-out refused so far is banana. I've made carrots, peas, green beans, acorn and butternut squash, sweet potatoes and pears. Hank has also had rice cereal, oatmeal, peaches, prunes and apples. And of course bananas! It's been pretty fun making things for him, but I've been neglecting the adults in the house. I realized last night when I was making dinner that the only vegetables I had in the house were pureed! Oh well, at least one of us is getting his veggies...
