The other day as we were taking our morning walk, I did something I swore I’d never do. One of those things that your own mother may or may not have done, that always drove you crazy, that you KNOW you will never do to your child. We were walking along, and I paused for a second to check on all the babies, make sure they were comfortable, and there it was: a crusty blob of oatmeal on Cameron’s cheek. (Somehow, every time we go out of the house, a blob of food appears, even though I just cleaned their faces.) Well, I can’t very well keep going, what if someone sees us and thinks, “Wow, that lady needs to clean her kids faces once in while- bad mom!”
So I did it. I licked my finger and wiped off the spot with my thumb. I was frozen for a minute by what I had just done, I just couldn’t believe it. Poor Cameron, at least he isn’t old enough to realize how gross that really is. I re-swore to never do it again, and moved on, but I still can’t believe I did that. YUCK!
Ok, anyway, in baby news, there isn’t too much to report. Here are a few pictures from this morning, the babies had some juice and waffles for a snack. I’m a little nervous about how much they like carbs. Lily will eat anything, but the boys have become more interested in pasta, waffles, bread, cheerios.. not so interested in veggies and fruit. I guess I just need to keep looking for different things to feed them..
Ben is doing better at standing unsupported.. he can let go of whatever he’s holding for about 5 seconds now, and Lily isn’t far behind. Cameron is pulling up to kneeling now, and can push himself up to sitting on his own. He still prefers to slide around on his belly, but he’s definitely making progress..
I did have a rare opportunity to go out last night, which was awesome. I met a few moms out at the Alehouse, where we blabbed about our kids for a few hours, which is always fun:) It was very very nice to get out of the house, and very nice to get some Zingers.. I haven’t had them in years!
