We had dinner at our favorite mexican place tonight. Braeden wanted to eat too, so we gave him this knife to play with instead!

I took this photo last night after Braeden's bath because I thought it was cute that father and son matched in green striped shirts (well, one shirt, one onesie anyway). And don't they look so serious?
Braeden's got a little cold so he's been coughing and sniffling yesterday and today. Most of the babies at day care are sick so we were expecting him to get it too. Hopefully he won't spread it to us, or at least that we won't get very sick this time around.
We tried putting Braeden in his new play pen this morning while we got ready for work but he just kept crying. He was too tired, so we put him in his car seat and he fell right asleep. Too cute! We'll try the play pen again tomorrow morning and hopefully he'll do better.

Tonight was the trial run of the Happy Baby Food Grinder. We microwaved a sweet potato then peeled it and put the chunks through the grinder. It worked like magic! In fact, it worked just like the playdoh spaghetti maker that both Mat and I remembered having as kids!!
To make it the right consistency, I mixed the potato with a little apple juice and a little water. Braeden loved it! It was a little thicker than out of the jar which made dinner time much neater!
We took pictures and I'll get them up as soon as I can. We also bought carrots and I'll get a butternut squash Friday when we go to the Bi-Lo. We also need an ice cube tray so that we can freeze cubes of happy baby food.

Although this picture of Braeden (and Mat) was taken on Father's day--a month and a half ago--it is still one of my favorites. If I remember correctly, Melissa told me both father and son had been hard at work most of the day. A well deserved rest ensued.
So, to catch you up on what Braeden has been up to...He's got two teeth, the bottom front two teeth came in around the end of June. He's starting to sit up on his own using his hands to support himself. And for the most part he hates to be on his back. We put him to sleep on his back, but he rolls over almost immediately onto his stomach.
What's new in Braeden's world? He's discovered our cats...he loves them! When he catches a glimpse of one, he smiles and tracks it with his eyes. Tilloo, the stupid one, will lay down next to Braeden on the floor and gingerly put up with getting his hair and whiskers pulled. Braeden pets the cat (petting=swatting and hitting) and tries to stuff the cat's hair in his mouth. Hudson won't go near Braeden, which makes him the smarter cat.
