I'm a regular ol' frontier woman.
Sure, as I type, my tv is on, I just answered my cell phone, and I'm bloggin' away, but that still doesn't mean I haven't done some little-house-on-the-prairie-type things today.
I currently have homemade whole wheat dinner rolls rising to bake for dinner.
Deaners is struttin' the cloth diapers. Oh, and crawling....everywhere he shouldn't.
I cut his hair today too. I didn't want to pay some stranger $15 + tip to cut his tiny baby hairs, so I figured I'd give it a go. And I did alright. Not great, but decent enough with the resources I was given. Those resources being a squirmy EIGHT-MONTH old baby who would rather grab the scissors then let me snip his hair. A high chair that wasn't quite high enough for me to get a great view, but still a good seat. And banana-flavored puffs - the ultimate for him. He tries to eat all the puffs at once. Too cute, that kid.
I fed him homemade baby food! So far, he's only eaten it 2 days...but he gobbles.it.up.
Bananas & Avocado
Apples & Bananas (Neeners as we like to call 'em)
Peas & Formula
Sweet Potatoes & Organic Vanilla Yogurt
Feeding your baby organic, made-from-scratch, baby food is insanely gratifying to say the least. Yesterday, I blended the Neeners & Avocado and let him try it right off the spoon. Just, awesome.
And for the work of about an hour each, on two seperate nights, I have 4 BAGS full of baby food in the freezer. Besides cloth diapers, this is the second most economically sound decision a parent could make. (in my opinion) We will see the results immediately.
As for now, I think I'll go use my indoor plumbing and drink my filtered water. Yes, technology is convenient sometimes.
