Solid Food and Stitches

What a title...but it truly describes what's been going on at our house.

Baby MAC is enjoying solid food these days. We recently started with rice cereal and have since introduced sweet potatoes (which he absolutely loves) and bananas (he's still not too sure about this fruit). Green beans are next on the menu.

(Disclaimer: Don't look at the next picture if you're squeamish.)

Poor A. got a really deep cut while trying to fix our ailing lawn mower from last season's tree stump attack. I just hate it when nature attacks. Five stitches, two antibiotics, one tetanus shot and one x-ray later he's on the mend. By the time this picture was taken a few of the stitches had already fallen out. Notice the swelling and colorful bruising too. And just to the right of the stitches you can see another scar from a previous injury.

And we're thankful for friends with teenage sons because there's one apparently looking to add an extra lawn to his summer vacation. Perfect timing!

I cannot believe he's eating big boy food! Next thing you know it'll be cheeseburgers! Wait...no it won't, you don't eat meat, right?

And tell your hubby to stick with picture takin' and leave the hard stuff to the teenagers! :)
