Okay, so it’s more like four and a half months. Remember when it was really important that people knew you were five and a half, NOT five? Those were the days. Now, I think I’d like to start rounding down.
My dad recently told me that I need to post more photos of Barley, because he’s “the star of the blog”. Not the recipes, not my writing – Barley. I’m not taking it too hard. It’s tough to compete with this:
In fact, I’m going to embrace it. You know the bloggers who post regular updates on their babies, complete with milestones, likes/dislikes, etc? Let’s do that.
New skills: “sit”, “down”, pulling some sort of insulation out from under the baseboards, jumping on and off furniture (he had trouble figuring out how to get down once he was up there)
Favorite foods: pumpkin puree, pears, oranges, sunflower seed butter, bananas, apples
Least favorite foods: raw kale, celery. I started giving him a piece of celery when I need to entertain him for a while. He just tears off tiny fibers and spits them out. Much cheaper than bully sticks.
Best friend: Sampson, our neighbor’s ten-month-old havanese/shih tzu/some kind of fluffy dog. From the moment their eyes met across the parking lot, it was love at first sight. These two have quite the bromance. Honey and Pickles (my parents’ puggle) are close seconds though.
Favorite person: everyone. He is personally offended and has what can only be described as a puppy meltdown if people walking by don’t stop and fawn over him.
Consecutive days not peeing in the apartment: 4!
Favorite way to sleep: on top of Honey’s head. His new nighttime ritual involves cleaning her ears ever so gently. They look clean to me, but what do I know.
Way more interesting than baby updates, right?
