yum yum and this bites

Firstly, a shout out to Toddler Tamer. I made her pumpkin muffins. Double yum. I did make them with half applesauce and also 1/3 whole wheat flour. The other yum was last night's butternut squash risotto. If anyone wants the recipe, let me know. Mr. P and I liked it, but M had his usual aversion to the texture of the risotto. He ate it, though, so I was happy.

Secondly, this bites. This being my child. She has taken to biting. I realize that she doesn't know what she's doing, so I can't get mad at her. We're trying to teach her. She bit a plug out of M's shoulder yesterday, and she's actually bitten my face a few times. It's somewhat less than pleasant. Keep your fingers crossed for us.

Okay, Thanksgiving was a hit. S had turkey, which she devoured just like she devours everything we put in front of her. It's both comical and scary to watch the child eat. We took lots of fun pictures of her over the weekend, and I'll get them up on Flickr eventually. Now we're home, waiting until this afternoon to pick up Otis. I'm anxious to see how things will be when he gets home as we set up the Christmas tree last night, meaning the living room is set up very differently. I wonder if S or Otis will be the first to crash into the tree. I'll keep you posted.

Now I'm going to dry off. The munchkin and I got caught in the rain during our walk. She doesn't seem to mind the fact that she's soaked, but I do.

That family pic is absolutely beautiful - I hope that's what you're using for the Christmas cards! And holy cow on getting your tree up so fast!! Kudos!

She's so frickin' cute, I can't stand it.

See, this is what I was emailing you about. Is your child wearing her cloth diapers in this photo? Her butt doesn't look deformed. Why does my child's? Please tell me she'll grow into them... I couldn't even snap her onesie around them today!

Yes, beautiful family picture! I'd love the risotto recipe, please.

Oh, and make sure to take a picture of your Christmas tree decorated 2/3 of the way up so little explorers can't pull all the ornaments off.... :-) That will be funny.
