I missed blogging too much. 🙂 I’m back, and I’ll try to be posting regularly.
Baby Boy is 7 1/2 months old now. He is eating solid foods now, which I make myself by pureeing and freezing foods in ice cube trays (I learned about that from the book Super Baby Food on my reading list). He loves to suck his thumb, which gets lots of smiles when we’re out and about. He is normally a pretty cheerful guy, but he has had a cold and slight fever for a couple of days, so he is grumpy and miserable and not sleeping very well. I’ve been nursing him a lot and giving him some extra T.L.C.
Not that I really need another hobby, but I love having candles burning in my home and have always wanted to try making them myself. I ordered some candle making supplies last week, and they arrived today. I made my first batch tonight (a tropical fruit/coconut scent), so the house smells pretty yummy!
We are moving in two weeks, and I haven’t yet begun to pack (although I did get rid of some things the other day). We have been living in a one-bedroom apartment for so long, I’m sure the three-bedroom apartment we’re moving to will seem like a palace!
Hubby recently started a full-time technology job, which suits him to a “T.” He has to work an average of 8 hours a day, but which hours he works is up to him. It is different having him gone all day, but Baby Boy and I are adjusting. We surely love it when he comes home. I think it’s the highlight of Baby Boy’s day. When I hear Hubby pull in the driveway or come up the stairs, I announce, “Papa’s home!” and Baby Boy flails his arms and looks at the door expectantly. It’s so cute!
