Solids! Finally!!

We've just started BabyL on solids. Yesterday was his first day on rice cereal. Organic at that. So far so good. Hubby tried a bit today, and he says it tastes like nothing. But BabyL is swallowing it. We know because it's showing up in his spit up, ha. In a couple more days, I'll introduce another food. Very exciting, and something I've been looking forward to for a long time (except for the solid poop that's going to come with it!)

In other news, my Grandma has been in the hospital for a few days. She had congestive heart failure due to a mini-heart attack that she had earlier. But she's on the mend and doing well. The doctors are amazed at her speedy recovery, especially considering that she's 96 years old. Go Grandma! Hopefully she will be discharged sometime this week.

Chemicals that may mimic estrogen

I was reading this article, and what I found interesting about it--something I didn't know--was that there is evidence that phthalates and BPA may mimic the estrogen hormone. I'm not so worried about the essential oils, but I am more concerned about the phthalates and BPA, and will be more diligent in avoiding these chemicals where ever possible, particularly since I have a little dude to raise.

So I've been married...

7 year. It seems like a long time, but now that BabyL's a part of the picture, I haven't given our anniversary too much thought. We had celebrated on Saturday with a nice meal out at The Cannery restaurant. Not doing much tonight. I think I might crash for a bit before giving BabyL his late evening feed, I'm wiped!
