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