With Max liking strings and cords and ropes so much I decided to make spaghetti for dinner to see what he would do with it. I know, you shouldn't let a little one have uncut spaghetti, but I was prepared for the worst and anticipated him choking, but he didn't at all, he loved it and even slurped and sucked the little strands of spaghetti into his mouth. It was the most fun I'd had at dinner in a long time. In the end, Adam got Baby Clean Up Duty while I had Kitchen/Dining Room Clean Up Duty. I don't know who got a better deal out of that one.
We don't bath Max a lot, he has eczema that gets pretty bad, so we do a lot of wiping down with wipes and wash cloths. It's not very often now that it's winter that he gets a bath. Well of course after the spaghetti dinner he had one. We've been noticing Max having a lot more hair lately but after his bath it really stood out to us! His hair is super fine (like mine) and stands straight up when squeaky clean.
I got some sewing done today- they were supposed to be at their destinations by Christmas as little gifts, but obviously they aren't going to make it on time. I don't know when I'll get to the post next- we're getting freezing rain all night tonight- but they'll get there sometime soon. Some flannel baby blankets and matching burpies. Both have little owls on them, I apparently had a theme in mind when at JoAnn's last time.
I still have some intended Christmas presents to be made, wrapped, mailed, and set under the tree. Or maybe they'll just have to be extremely good planning for next year.
