We've been having a sick few weeks around these parts. Last week, The Guy came down with an explainable high fever. I chalked it up to teething, but apparently he had roseola, complete with wicked sweet red dotty rash all over his body. It looked cool, didn't seem to bother him except for the fever. I apologize in advance to any parents whose children may or may not have been exposed to him at church, playground, etc. I had no idea he was contagious. Rookie mistake.

A few days ago, I came down with a sore throat and Tim the next day. The Guy may or may not have a sore throat. It's hard to tell, but he's rather fussy. I couldn't think of what to do with a baby sore throat except Tylenol and breast milk smoothies. Hopefully this combination will do the trick.

Luckily, this weekend we have nothing to do but lay around and get better.

On a brighter note, we had some asparagus that needed to be eaten from Bountiful Baskets , so I broke up the monotony of a strict Tomato Soup diet (my own) and made dinner. We had salmon, asparagus, and sweet potato. The Guy ATE IT UP. He loved it. I was worried about his pickiness because he wouldn't eat baby food, but that's just because he has refined tastes for a 6-month-old.

On a second bright note, Tim reading to The Guy today. He looooooves his Middle Eastern politics.


  1. Tim...about that haircut? Isn't it time?
    Hope you guys are feeling better than we are.

  2. Ugh, we have been sick too. Sick kiddos are so grumpy. Hope you get better soon. I followed the link to bountiful basket but I am a little confused by it. I really like the idea of a food co-op and getting some food from them. I also noticed there is a location where we are. Can you explain more about it and how it works? Thanks

  3. Bountiful Baskets is a food co-op, you have to go to their website on a certain day (I think it's Tuesday or Wed.) to make your contribution. You go to the website, add the basket, and then check out. Keep your confirmation number/print out the confirmation page. It will tell you the pick-up time and location, go there, pick it up, enjoy.
