Time to Eat

Sometimes we have to hold his hands so he doesn't shove the spoon in his mouth.

Feeding the other babies.

Now that Wilson is approaching 6 months old we are getting into baby food. I think this little guy is getting the hang of it pretty fast. Madelyn is and always has been a very light eater--Wilson on the over hand, well there's a reason he already weighs 20 lbs. He LOVES to eat!!!

Rice cereal is definitely a favorite but a new second is sweet potatoes. We continue to try new things to add to his diet, but he has been having a little trouble in the diaper department. Today I broke out the prunes and we will see if they work. Last night I don't know if it was the fact that he hadn't pooped in almost 3 days or new teeth coming in that kept him up and crying from about midnight until 3 a.m. I do know that I am very tired today and I hope that he is in a better mood and can fill his pants before the day is through. Oh, the funny things I wish for these days!

Hayride with the Cousins

Preparing the hotdogs for the fire
(What you can see in this picture is the cows are only about four feet away from the fire. No one seemed to move them to another field.)

A rare photo with me actually in the picture!

Wilson slept through most of the hayride and winnie roast.

Poppy Joe even took us through the haunted woods, good thing it was day time!

Don't ask me what Poppy Joe is going to do with the girls.

The whole family on the little tractor.

Hold on Wilson, it's your first time jumping and....

your sister is a wild woman on that thing!

We went home to Missouri for my class reunion and we also had a lot of fun with most of Madelyn and Wilson's "Habjan" Cousins. Poppy Joe and Grandma Habjan had a hayride and everything! Madelyn didn't nap most days that we were there, but she slept very well at night. It was a wild trip getting to Missouri with a tire blow-up on I-70 in the rain and some crying kids. The trip was worth it, but about 3 hours longer than we expected.
