A Sunny Outlook

The sun is shining (a rare thing for the Okanagan in November) so I’m in a good mood. Of course, it helps that both kids slept well last night and are currently napping. We can’t seem to go for more than three or four weeks without both boys coming down with the sniffles, and Brayden was pretty miserable this time around, but the worst of it seems to be over now.

Brayden is seven months old now (how did that happen so fast?) and spends most of his time creeping around. He desperately wants to crawl. He gets up on his knees and rocks back and forth, but hasn’t quite figured out how to get in gear yet. I’m pleased to see he’ll eat anything at this point, but we’ll see how long that lasts. Justin is actually not as picky as he used to be but he’s still not big on trying new foods, unless of course I use the magic ingredient. He’ll eat almost anything (fish, chicken, steak, eggs, potatoes) if I put it in applesauce. Once upon a time that bothered me, but I’ve been a parent long enough to realize that anything you can do to get the food into him is just fine. And hey, applesauce beats ketchup.
