We made it to music class only a little late, then I had to get adjusted as I have had a headachey week. Both girls napped fairly well, but not at the same time, unfortunately for me.
Brielle assisted in my baby food making marathon by not pulling everything off the counter. We made enough ‘baby’ food to last until she is on solids altogether, and can eat more textures. We concocted a lot of options, including: veggie trio-potato, parsnips, and yam, yam puree, acorn squash puree, acorn squash and apple, carrot puree, another veggie trio–yam, carrots and broccoli, pear sauce, and a broccoli and potato puree. In case you’re wondering, I just make a one time huge mess making her food from fresh fruits and veggies, freeze tablespoon size servings in ice cube trays, and we’re good to go.
Then Aviana helped make Daddy’s heart cookie for Valentine’s Day, while Brielle slept in the Mei Tai. Every year I try to make a giant cookie like they sell at Cookies and More, and every year I end up baking it too long and it is challenging to crunch through. It’s still tasty with ice cream.
Kevin grilled the three meat eaters steak, even though there’s a foot of snow in the ground, it’s about 8º and he couldn’t really see what he was doing. Brielle, meanwhile, immensely enjoyed her first taste of squash. 🙂
We got the girlies to bed and the kitchen cleaned up finally! For some reason we ran really late, and then ended up getting into a hugeish fight. Grrr. It seems like we always do that on special days or when we’re about to go on a special trip. I know Satan wants us fighting instead of making our marriage stronger and more beautiful, so why do I still fall for it? I can be soooooooooo immature!
Anyway, that was Valentine’s Day for us. What’d you do?
