Peaches and Applesauce

Today we found out Caleb is not a big fan of peaches or applesauce. We started with applesauce. He had a few bites and then started gagging when I would try to give it to him. I have to admit it was really comical. Since he wasn't eating the applesauce I thought I wold try peaches, big mistake!!! The first spoon of peaches he was gagging and hacking like he was going to throw up. I tasted both and the apple sauce was OK, but I don't blame him for refusing the peaches.... they were disgusting. They were so bland I almost gagged.

I hope when he is a little older and has graduated to the 2nd step baby food he will like peaches and applesauce. It is really amusing watching him turn into a little person with his own likes and dislikes. Such as a pacifier, he will only take Avent pacifiers, which is the same brand his bottles are. Any other pacifier he spits out immediately. He also has a favorite toy on his toy bar, a sea horse, all the other toys he is interested in for a few minutes but that sea hose he could play with it for days.

Being a Home Owner

What the heck? Willow Park charges a 36.50 base rate for water. That is before we even use one drop of water. I think that is rediculous. But I guess that is just one of the pretty little perks we get for being a home owners.

On the subject of our home, I wish I could just blink and it would all be put together. Things have kind of come to a screeching halt since Matt has been working 6 days a week. But at least he is home every night. I am not looking forward to when he starts working nights. It is going to be very difficult.

Change of Subject: Caleb is the sweetest baby every!! He is getting so rollie. His little thighs and arms have creases all over them. When he smiles, which is all the time, it is nothing but gums and drool, it just melts my heart. I could just eat him up.

Today we spent the day with Matt's parents. We had a nice lunch and spent the afternoon wandering around Cabel's. That place is HUGE! I can't wait until Caleb is older and can enjoy it, but I bet then I am going to be wishing he was a baby in a stroller again, so I won't have to worry about where he is or what he is getting into.

He is growing so fast!! It seems like yesterday we brought him home. And now he is rolling over and eating baby food! He loves his rice and bananas, later this week I am going to introduce him to veggies, hopefully he will like them unlike his daddy.

These next couple of weeks are going to be tough Matt is still working six days a week. Which is great because we can use the money but I miss seeing him as much. It is only for another couple of weeks so we can make it. I guess that is it for tonight Matt is ready to go to sleep.
