After yesterday's well-received post about a typical Audrey morning, I decided to continue with a post about our afternoon, especially since methinks we will be stuck inside yet again. Rain, rain, you know where to go . . .
Audrey seems to be in the midst of some sort of growth spurt; she has been firmly attached to my boobs for, I kid you not, the last two hours. Here she is asleep, but that doesn't mean she won't be right back for more any minute:
I'm getting tons of writing done, but starvation is starting to set in. Audrey wakes and I rush into the kitchen to fix myself a pb&j. She's waking rather slowly . . .
Later, we practice sitting up:
In the last few days Audrey has really taken a shine to Sailor, much to Sailor's total disinterest. Today she even tried to talk to her, but Sailor wasn't listening (she rarely does listen).
I checked on dinner, a roaster chicken. Much to my dismay, my crock pot recently met his demise in a headlong collision with a Fiestaware plate. The plate left the scene unscathed, but the crock pot cracked beyond all repair. This means my rather large roaster chicken has been stuffed into my medium-sized dutch oven (dutch oven *giggle*). This strikes me as unusual in that roaster chickens are often stuffed, but rarely are they themselves the stuffee. And I now see why: stuffing a large, slithery, raw chicken into a smaller receptacle is no easy task and by the looks of things, it is also not entirely conducive to cooking.
Hanging out in the bedroom while I write. We tend to move from room to room in attempt to keep Audrey entertained while I crank out my literary masterpiece.
Audrey is breastfeeding again. As soon as she is finished with this afternoon's milk buffet, I'm going to attempt to spice up her solid foods--she has only had milky cereal thus far--by adding some veg to her diet. Tara gave me a wonderful baby food processor, which will soon be making its virgin voyage with some steamed (steamy?) sweet potato. Sweet potatoes, a yummy first vegetable, yes?
Well, this afternoon has just been a delight :)
"Gonna find my baby, gonna hold her tight."
