I'm typing one-handed right now because Sprout is using my other hand as a bottom rest. I should put her down when she's sleeping, but I can't bring myself to. Help, I'm being held captive by a sleeping baby!
Spring is coming on apace here in Redneck Central. I know this how? Not flowers or buds or birds...nope...but because the weather can't make up its danged mind and because my eyes are itchy and watery. Yay Spring...achoo...
Sprout has had a bit of occasional colic. Imagine needing to burp or pass gas, but you can't. Ouch. So we've been having occasional distress/irritation/zombie-like time here at Casa de Crazy. We switched formulas, which seems to have helped but also seems to have constipated her a little. Poor kid...she keeps trying to tell us what's wrong, but we don't speak Waaaaaaaah.
Also in Sprout news...she's smiling at us now. Of course, she won't do it when I have a camera handy...
Mum stayed here for a few nights - she was working at the Sewing Expo, helping sell raffle tickets for a quilt. I asked what she wanted for dinner and she requested chicken fried steak. I made it last night while she played with Sprout. Believe it or not, making CFS, mashed potatoes, gravy (ok, so I cheated and used a powdered mix...but it's good, and I'm lazy), and green beans was a break! Sprout even snoozed during dinner, so Someone and I got to have a hot meal together, at the same time, in the same place! Alert the media...a family dinner was had at Casa de Crazy. We even sat at the dining room table. The end is nigh...
Yesterday I wondered how much bacon one pig can produce. An average hog will provide 34.5 pounds or about 320 pieces...almost one serving if you're the Evil Genius.
What've you been wondering about?

I'm wondering when they're going to leave the time alone.

if you can find it down there, Cocyntal (by Boiron) is a homeopathic remedy for colic that worked wonders for my gassy son (as did visits to a chiropractor who specialized in babies and children)

Nothing like the adventures of parenthood! Makes everything else seem small in comparison, right?

Thanks for the pictures today, sweetie! Beautiful!

That Sprout is a real beauty!
