My Baby's Growing Up

In 2 days, he learned to sit up in his crib by himself (and thus everywhere else), pulled up on the coffee table unassisted, and CRAWLED across the floor! Not too fast just yet, but it was still crawling! And here I thought he'd never do it....

So now I have to get busy baby-proofing this place! I'm happy and excited for him, but sad he's growing up so fast at the same time.

Tamales With A Side of Puke

Drew threw up on me tonight.

We were out to dinner with an old friend of mine from my UT days, who lives in Boston and was in town visiting her folks. Mexican food, since she lives in Boston and can't get real Mexican food.

Drew had his dinner before we left, and was happily chowing down on his baby crack Cheerios. He starting coughing like he was choking on one, and was having a tough time, gagging and the whole bit, and he started crying after he got the little piece up. So I pick him up out of the high chair to comfort him, and he up-chucks. All. Over. Me. You could tell he'd had carrots for dinner. It was disgusting, and smelled disgusting.

Luckily, however, it was mainly on me and not on him. So it didn't bother me to leave him in the shirt with puke on the sleeve. And, I had my puffy vest to wear over my shirt, so you couldn't see my white shirt with orange puke all over it. He was fine afterwards, and went back to his Cheerios.

Poor little man. Hopefully the stains come out.

I'm Hungry

All. The. Time.

I have lost a few pounds the last few weeks or so, even my parents commented on how thin I look. I'm not bragging, trust me. I eat A LOT, too. I'm a bit worried because I can't seem to get enough calories! It's got to be the breast-feeding. I am supposed to get 500 extra calories a day, because Drew will take what he needs, and if I didn't get more, I'd waste away! I'm still pretty flabby in the mid-section (that's what happens when you get such a big belly), but all my pre-preggo clothes are a bit loose!

I was going just fine, but for some reason I just can't seem to eat enough these days. I'm trying to be healthy about it, too. However, sometimes eating a whole box of Nilla Wafers is all that will satisfy me. Hmmm, you'd think I was pregnant! Don't worry, I'm not.

Lately I've been craving protein. At least I think that's what it is. I can't quite decide, actually. All I know is that my cravings aren't being satisfied, and protein seems to be the main thing that is missing during the day. Because who just randomly has meat laying around to snack on? Besides bologna, which isn't exactly the best for you, but it may come to that here in a minute....

For now, I'm eating a bag of chips and some salsa. At least the salsa is good for me. It's veggies, right?

Happy Halloween!!!
