They Won't Eat Potatoes
All of my children refuse to eat potatoes. All kinds of potatoes. Mashed. Baked. Scalloped. The only kind they will eat are french fries. (Not even tater tots.) I don't get it.
However, my children have no problem chewing gum that has previously been chewed by someone else (Spenser's first and second time). Nor do they have problems eating the colored macaroni necklaces that they make for Thanksgiving. Nor do they (Spenser) have problems eating glued popcorn off Jack's school work. And I think she was taste-testing the pink Play-Doh yesterday, too. Sigh.
I feed my children ... honestly!

I took Sawyer to the doctor's for his 2-month checkup yesterday. He weiged 13.4 lbs., and was 23 1/3" long. He is in the 75-90th percentile for weight and the 75th for his height (I think). He had to get several shots and was not a happy little man last night. He had been sleeping really well the past 4-5 nights (sleeping until 3 a.m., then 4 a.m., and even 5:30 a.m. Sunday through Monday). Last night he was awake a few times. I'm hoping that it's just because of the shots. Poor little guy. And to make matters worse, I had to remove the bandages from the shots in his morning bath and it made him cry. And I think I may have pinched his finger or something when I put him in his swing a few minutes ago and made him cry. I'm such a bad mom!
