Tonight a miracle occurred. I made dinner, and everybody ate it. They even liked it. No complaining, no whining, no force feeding, and only a little bit on the floor. Miracle!
On the subject of eating...Joshua has hit an enormous growth spurt. I'm so happy for him, but he's hard to keep up with. For breakfast he'll have three bowls of cereal or four pancakes, three sandwiches for lunch, two apples and two bananas for snacks, not to mention the bag of goldfish and gallon of milk that he's polished off in the last two days. He's a monster.
Finally, I should report on Benjamin's birthday! Shame on me, I forgot to bring the camera to his party...thank goodness for camera phones, but nonetheless I have no cakeface pictures to post. We celebrated last Sunday at Grandma's house. Benjamin DEVOURED his cake and made a wonerful mess. He is enjoying his new toys and I'm grateful for the new summer clothes that he got! (Emmeline and Joshua are likewise enjoying Benjamin's new toys!) Benjamin weighed in at 22 lbs. and 30 inches on his birthday. (He has grown, but gained no weight since 9 months). I can't believe he's already one! I also can't believe birthday season is here in our house. It's a fun, but busy time!
That's it for today!
