Milestones



Two of them popped up, or should I say teeth. Wow C is only 6 1/2 months old and yesterday and today she got her first teeth. I don't think the other two were as little as she is when they got their teeth.




Don't mind the green on her face, its broccoli from the garden, cooked and buzzed up in the blender. She loves the stuff. I thought she might not like it but she wolfed it down, and had seconds too :O)





If you look you can see the two little dark spots in her gums. Click on the pictures if you really care, not that you have to.





Ok as promised I'll talk about the garden:

So its been raining here for like a week straight. Seriously. Anyways the garden is in full bloom, picking lots almost every day!

I made our first batch of tomato sauce a few nights ago, and froze some too! It was soooo yummy!





We used all of these big tomatoes, in both pictures.




Then we made a cucumber, red onion and tomato salad, it was also good. With the leftovers of the salad I'm adding chicken to it so I can just throw that and some spinach in a tortilla and have a quick and easy yummy lunch!



Oh yeah remember the broccoli that C was eating?! Well its the healthiest looking broccoli I've ever seen. Its so big and hearty. See!?!


Knitting update:

I still need to knit 2 inches and then the toes of my pal's socks.

Also I can't go knitting tonight because there is a meeting at church for all of the Sunday morning staff, I teach in the 2's and 3's department, so I had to choose which to go to. Even though I love knitting I thought it best to attend the meeting, I wonder if they'll mind if I knit there hmmmmm.

Have a wonderful week!

I didn't start to love broccoli until I was an adult. She's way ahead of me. Your garden harvest looks so yummy! It's been raining nonstop here too. I don't have a garden, but if I did it would be really muddy.

Congrats to Chloe for getting her first teeth. Isabelle got her first two teeth when she was 5 1/2 months old, and lost her first 2 teeth when she was 5. Lachlan never got any teeth until 8 mths old and never lost any until he was 7. I used to let Isabelle suck on iceblocks when she was a bit older to reduce the pain of her teething. Your market bag looks great too, which makes me think I really should make myself one of those soon. Your vegies look so yummy too. I am waiting for ours to start growing.
