Project 365: Week 16

by Wendy Copley on April 28, 2009

106/365

April 16, 2009: Augie is totally, completely, officially crawling now. We are scrambling to get all the teeny, tiny stuff that you never notice off the floors and out from under the furniture.

107/365

April 17, 2009: I made a couple of batches of baby food. Here you see blueberry applesauce and pureed broccoli.

108/365

April 18, 2009: I impulsively bought an iPhone when we went to the AT&T store to replace my 5 year old phone. This is the first picture I took with it. We were eating lunch at Rubio’s.

109/365

April 19, 2009: Sometimes I need to put Augie in the Ergo carrier to get dinner going. Here, I’m peeling carrots and chopping a red bell pepper for a stir-fry that nobody liked but me (new recipe — no hard feelings). You can also see a big glass of iced tea just to the right of Augie’s face. I chugged iced tea for three days straight because we had a bizzaro heat wave here and the temperatures were in the high 80’s and low 90’s. I drink a lot of iced tea in the summer.

April 20, 2009: This was the hottest day of the heat wave and we were all pretty miserable. It was too hot to even go to the playground because all the equipment was burning hot from the sun. We filled the kiddy pool up and Wyatt played in there a bit with the neighbor kids. We also played with chalk on the front sidewalk for awhile. More iced tea for me, ice water for Wyatt.

111/365

April 21, 2009: Hot again. Wyatt was back at preschool. Augie was miserable and I gave him not one, but two baths during the day to cool him off. Here he is, freshly scrubbed. He was so cute I had to take a picture of us in the bathroom mirror.

April 22, 2009: Oh yum! Tuna salad sandwhich made with Miracle Whip and chopped sweet pickles is my favorite warm weather lunch. I actually went to the store  on a special trip to buy the tuna. This sandwich is repulsive to Zach, by the way, but differences are what keep a marriage spicy.

    I always liked these tuna sandwiches too. Made the same way, no silly celery or onions. Mine were not toasted but, I had them with a nice hot bowl of Campbells bean soup. Simple roots you know.

    I think Tuna Fish should be a basic food group!

    I’ve got a good start on a pair of fins.

    Blueberry applesauce and pureed broccoli are so beautiful and so are our boys. Look at that big boy crawling and that other big boy taking care of his baby brother.

  • OK Karol — this is how you can tell I’m not from the South: I can’t stand my iced tea with sugar in it! Doesn’t that automatically disqualify me?

  • (I am a yankee with southern parents)I only drink unsweet tea. Or tea with lemonade. Gah,southern sweet tea is gagalicious-and I mean that in the best way. Your boys are the cutest. And only tuna salad with sweet relish(though I use mayo)is acceptable. Can you believe my hubby had never had a tuna salad sandwich before he met me? He really is from a different planet. Ah well-have fun with your new phone. Have you checked out the Disney store(they have/had a few weeks ago really nice locking bento boxes)?
    have a great week!

    Well, you know some of my dearest friends do not drink sweet tea. But I personally could drink it morning, noon and night. When we were in China, we found a place that served “Fruit Tea”. It was served (no lie) in quart fruit jars!!! And it was unsweetened but was came with little silver cream pitchers full of simple syrup so you could sweeten to taste. I poured the entire pitcher in mine!! By the way, I count you as one of my friends. And I would never ever disqualify you, on any count. Any one whose child is giddy happy with his mama’s cooking all over him is just fine in my book!!! Love it.

  • Hey Karol — I meant to congratulate you on your niece’s arrival! That’s really wonderful news. And how exciting was your trip to China??

    So much fun. And our Stellabella is just beautiful. She turned one on April 16 and we were there to celebrate. We were among 12 families from the States that got baby girls. My sister, brother in law, nephew, mother and I were the largest family represented. But what a trip. We were in Hong Kong ,Nan Chang and Gwanzho. Beautiful islands. But the flight is a major bummer. Made it home ahead of the Swine Flu. Had to laugh at your letter to Wyatt about the pig. We shopped at a 2 story WalMart and my sister and I both bought a Bento!!!
