We started her on solids the other day. She's been having brown rice cereal for a few months and I decided it was finally time. BIG MOMENT!
We gave her sweet potatoes, and from her lack of expression I'd say she liked it. and was probably thinking, "geez, it's about stinkin time, yall." She showed more enthusiasm in the proceeding feedings :]
I've gone NUTS about BERRIES. I already mentioned this in my last post...but I don't think I'll ever get over how easily accessible they are in this state. We got blackberries this time. They're in all the ditches around here but we went to our ever favorite u-pick farm instead. I like supporting local farmers when I can, especially the ones who treat their customers so well. The farmers we meet here are always friendly, and they don't care at all that my 2 year old is stomping through their strawberries or gobbling a bushel of blueberries while we pick. In fact they welcome it. How nice is that?!
But in the end we got soooo many juicy, tart blackberries- and it only cost $3!
There was a garden for the pickers to enjoy, so we let Talmage run around and get all his toddler jitters out.
Charlotte sat in the back seat of the stroller for the first time (my girl is growing up...sigh). She actually was really quiet and observant the whole time. Just smelling the flowers I guess!
Jonathan has been applying for jobs like crazy and we're anxious to find out where the Lord is taking us next. He only has 4 more days left of his internship! His coworkers are sad to see him go and are throwing him a little party on his last day (it's in a bar, so I will be staying home with the chillins). I couldn't be more proud of how hard he has worked and the relationships he's established. It's no secret that my husband is kind of quiet and shy, so this has been a HUGE milestone for him. Plus I'm way impressed that he has spent his days with criminally insane patients then come home to me, his nearly mental wife. Amazing. I couldn't do it.
It's also really stressful- not knowing where we'll be moving to in so short a time. We haven't packed a thing, we have no money to move, and we've gotten comfortable here in Oregon. So moving seems like a pretty radical thing to do right now. But we have no choice...he needs to work somewhere.
So. that's our life right now. INSANE.
but good...always good.
