Mr Handsome dressed up in one of his gorgeous knitted gifts against the draft of the A/C
Just a super quick post to get another couple of pics up. No real major news at this point. It is still stupidly hot - 40+ (100F) every day and over 30 at nights. It sure has been a crazy summer! The Roo is doing well and growing his way out of most of his wardrobe. He turned 1 month today and I'm sure he's hit the 10 pound mark but his weight gain is in the healthy rather than the 'supersize me' range. We had a horrible night Sunday (why is it always the night before I have to go to work) but a much better night last night (bliss!)
Friends of ours from New Zealand gave Marty a 'sleep sheep' which I was somewhat facetious about early on, mostly because it was a sheep (lame giggles). But now I take it all back - the sheep, who we have dubbed Morpheus, is a godsend! It plays different kinds of white noise that help baby sleep and he totally loves the ocean waves one. And the best thing is that they even sound good to us, so Morpheus is probably helping all three of us sleep better! It does have one option for 'mother's heartbeat' which sounds disturbingly like someone sloshing vast quantities of blood through plastic gutters... Not so soothing, at least not to me!
This intermittent blog follows the random adventures of my family and me. We are a two mum family with our awesome three year old Marty Roo (formerly baby Tuesday) and our newest addition, Kenzie the Kelpie.
I love cooking and far too much of this blog is about food, traveling and eating. For me, cooking for people is how I tell them I love them.
I am a statistical geneticist, geek, gamer, inherently lazy, cheese addict and whisky drinker.
Right now we're working on settling back in to Tassie, holding on to memories and friends in Texas and getting into the rhythm of life. It is a fun ride and y'all are welcome to join us!
