Frustrated as

This post is about poo, to make it a little more entertaining, I'm giving you, the reader, the privelege of using your favorite word for poo in the "blank" field.

What's more fun than (blank) , really??!

Well, Caden's (blank)ing or lack thereof is really starting to get the best of me. Since we started him on solids, about a month ago, there have been serious lack of (blank) .

I went to the Dr earlier this week, she doesn't seem to concerned, the only thing she said to me was to give him water during the day. Issue! Caden hasn't taken too well to drinking water, none-the-less from a bottle.

Right now, well for the last 10 minutes he's been spending time in his jumperoo, or as its otherwise called - "his favorite (blank)ing spot". He's been very busy straining and grunting.

I get so frustrated watching him work so hard to (blank) !!

I'm nearly at my wits!

Dropkick Murphys - Amazing Grace (Good Quality Studio)

Ok, so if you're falling asleep while doing dishes, reading your children "just one more story", or simply a little low on Java...let this music speak to you and bring you out of the sedated state.
(I originally heard this song on DIY Gourmet's blog months ago, thought I'd share with you all)

Baby food cost savings chart

I got this chart comparing store bought baby food cost to making it your own at home from fruits and of this website

It was made in the US, I'm sure the cost savings are still relevant. I like the concept of making all my baby food, but sometimes there is just no time!

little notes...

We're working on getting Caden's passport, I got his picture done last week, then today I looked at the instructions for pictures which states "child must be neither smiling, nor frowning and mouth must be closed". Caden is not smiling or frowning, but his mouth is open. How do you tell a 6 month old to close their mouth?! I hope they're not too fussy on that point.
Caden is starting to eat food. He's been against some foods like prunes, pears and peaches, at least on their own. Yesterday morning I gave him oat cereal mixed with peaches, which he was ok with. In the evening he eats pureed steamed carrots, which he loves!
Caden got a cold/runny nose on Monday, which he lovingly shared with me. I think Caden's is getting better now, although still sneezing and runny nose. He hates the wiping nose part, although when he does get mad while I'm wiping his nose, his frustration helps the junk come out, so I don't feel as bad. Me? I think this morning is the worst I've felt all week, I hope this is the peak and gets better from here.
Caden was weighed by my sister at my parents place Easter weekend, he is 20 lbs. I met a nurse this week who said her 14 month old daughter is 24 lbs. Solid little boy we have, unbelievable to me that they can grow like that on breastmilk, just amazes me!!
Caden is now napping, I'm going to try napping too...adios.

Good Friday

He was perfect.
Without sin.
Not one sin.
The Governer Pilate knew He had done no wrong.
The people were relentless in their quest for Him to be crucified.
He was handed over to be crucified.
He was flogged.
Spat upon.
Struck in His face.
Wore a Crown of Thorns.
He was mocked (for claiming to be a King).
Carried His own cross.
Nailed to a cross.
Died for me, paid for my sin.
