Simon is playing in his crib, grabbing his feet, and being generally a good boy. I think I woke him up when a shelf of cookbooks fell over, resulting in a large crash in the kitchen... Sorry baby!
He's almost crawling, which is nice and terrifying at the same time. He already excels at scooting around on his back, and he can get pretty much anywhere he likes with a combination of this back scooting and rolling over at opportune times.
We also bought two of these "Indestructible" baby books, and he's been trying his best to destruct them.... and me.
In other news, I've made this:
with some of the fruit we got from Winder Farms (see last post).... and this pizza:
with some of the potatoes (recipe from the new "My Bread" book I recently got).
I also got this...
...which, based on previous experience, I believe to be a stye (see how one bottom eyelid is puffier than the other). As Jamund so nicely put it last night, it's kind of like a pimple on your eyelid. I think it resulted from earlier this week when I had some issues with makeup and mascara getting in my eye. Anyway, styes feel like someone punched you in the eye. So it's not so much fun--I'm not wearing contacts or eye makeup either right now--especially with a baby who loves to grab glasses off of your face.
Hooray! Another week of being a mom and baby (and working papa)!
