Tuesday Thoughts

It is only Tuesday. And a rainy one at that. And Monday was rainy as well. I keep telling myself that I can deal with two crazy rainy days in a row because the next several days are supposed to be gorgeous! Days of the week take on a whole knew meaning when Chris is traveling. It's a completely mental game getting through 5 days and 4 nights without him here. Tuesday always seems to be the longest.
Last night when putting Samantha in her crib for the night I noticed that her fish toy needed new batteries. I told her I'd take the toy downstairs to replace the batteries and that I would bring it right back upstairs for her. After replacing the batteries I hung the toy back on her crib and pushed the button that starts the lights and music. Upon seeing that the toy was fixed, Samantha excitedly declares "It's working; YEAH MOMMY!" This was said while raising her arms and fists up into the air!
Jake has decided that he no longer wants any part of baby cereal and pureed fruits and veggies. He is done! So, we are going back to a little bit more formula while he learns how to eat a few more solid foods. He is doing pretty well with peas, apples, pears and anything crunchy. Today I tried spreading some of the pureed veggies onto ritz crackers and he still ate it! To take a quote from Samantha "My fooling you Jake!"
