Learning curve

My son is totally fantastic.

But sometimes I wonder....

He has a whole bin of really nice toys to play with, but his favorite thing in the whole house is our dirty busted up silver garbage can. Whenever I turn around, there he is...sneaking his chubby little fingers under the lid and pulling out whatever gross treasure he can find.

Wadded up toilet paper? Yes...lets put that in my mouth

Slimy broken egg shells...pass them over here

Old wet styrofoam meat trays? Surely that is better to explore than the beautiful toys that grandma got me

It jus gives me the willies every time he scoots his little bum over there. But with our big farmhouse sink there isn't enough room under there to put a can.

I guess I'm just going to have to keep my eye peeled to make sure nothing truly disgusting ends up going down the hatch.

(Isn't the most exciting thing you've ever seen in your whole life!?!?!?)

A new endeavor

Tomorrow the ear doctor and I are starting a whole30...which means 30 days of really strict eating. No dairy, no grains, no legumes, no white potatoes, no added sugar.

We are doing it mainly because the ear doctor wanted to try it...just to see if it did anything for him. And it's so intense that if I didn't join him it probably wouldn't work. 

I'm not 100% sold on the idea as a lifestyle, but I like the idea of testing my self control. Of picking something tough and following through. That's right up my competitive alley.

This morning I went through all out cupboards and took out anything that didn't fit the bill.

Then we wen to Costco and spent $300! (Food for 2+ weeks$ I thought it would be easiest to plan our out meals for as long as possible and avoid going to the store as much as we can.

I hope this ends up being an awesome experience. The funny thing is that when we put together the meals we noticed that we are basically planning to eat exactly how we've been feeding Sammy for te past 3 months! Crazy!

10 months

This has without a doubt been the fastest 10 months of my life! Now Sammy is cruising around anything at his level and taking this photo has never been harder.

Like trying to catch a greased hog.

I was lucky to get anything remotely usable.
