At 27 months, I begin a reluctant process of weaning Ryan.

When it came time today(still one of a few),

I said to him: Mommy has no more num num for Ryan.

Ryan taps me gently on my chest and asks softly: Is mommy sad?

And I nod my head...

I ask him: Is Ryan sad?

Ryan: Ye-es.

He lays his head down on me, and we comfort each other.

Ryan sits up in bed this morning

Sneezes "Ha Choo!"


and says, "S'cuse me!"

Write on the Board One Hundred Times: I AM NOT AN INTUITIVE COOK!

I look at the fish in front of me, and I look at the laptop 15 feet away with my recipe for steamed cod in it, and I think to myself:


How hard can it be to marinate a fish and steam it?

Paleo Baby

Getting more adept at holding on to his food and putting it in his mouth...

His first piece of steak - top sirloin

One week later, chicken for dinner
