this weather!

i had all intentions of going to work yesterday, but the roads were all covered, i had my mom, my sister, and two friends calling me saying i shouldn't even attempt it. so i didn't. i called off. and it felt GOOD.. i got to spend all day with my boys and did NOTHING. it was wonderful!

then last night, i looked outside and it was all ICE. it had frozen and a big, sloppy mess. so i called last night and left a voicemail saying i wouldn't be there today either.

i drive a little car and i really don't need to have an accident.

i took a picture of my steps on my phone, but my phone is dumb and i can't send it to myself to put on here. i wish i would've taken more. oh well... there'll be more snow in illinois, i'm sure.

Hey! As far as making your own food, there are all kinds of ways to do it...I would recommend the book "Super Baby Food!' What I do is I purchase whatever Parker likes. For example, bananas, what I did was sliced up 3 bananas and put them in the blender, I think I added about a cup of water...and pureed it. Then I took some baby food containers (you know the kind you get from the store, the plastic ones? when we are done, I clean them and use them for my own...) and I poor it in there and freeze it. Or say for carrots, I cook the carrots so they are tender....puree them in them. I know in some cases you can do like ice cube trays...put the food in there, one ice cube is just about an oz!

It's pretty simple, then again, I am only on stage 1 fruits and veggies. I can't imagine what it might be like when he gets older.
