Home, home on the range.

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

Recipes include:
Bananas & Avocado
Apples & Bananas (Neeners as we like to call 'em)
Peas & Formula
Mixed Veggies
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.
