Four, four, four posts in one!


Look what I bought! Well, I haven't paid for them yet, but I will soon. That's right. I bought myself a brand new set of stitches. Six of them. I slipped on the ice outside of our house yesterday morning. Split it open pretty good. Luckily Zeke had a doctor's appointment later in the morning, so they stitched it up for me, when we were done with him. I will have a nice scar from it, but luckily it's pretty hidden by my eyebrow. I also busted up my shoulder pretty good. It actually hurts more than my eye does.
Like I said before, Zeke had a doctor's appointment. His four month check-up. He is 17 lbs 8 oz, and 25 3/4 inches long. He is in the 99th percentile for his weight and 80th for his length. He is fat, healthy, and happy. Except for the fact that he is sick again right now. He has a cough and a fever, and his cry is kind of hoarse, so I think his throat might be sore, too. He is pretty miserable, but he still manages to smile occasionally.
I heard this idea on Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee. You know how sometimes when you microwave something you have to cover it with a paper towel? And how sometimes the paper towel will slide off the bowl when it's spinning around? Well, get the paper towel wet, then drape it over the bowl. I do this everytime I make chili, and it works great.
Zeke had rice cereal for the first time yesterday. He did okay. About like you'd expect a baby to do the first time. I'm hoping it will help him sleep better at night. He is still getting up every 3 1/2 to 4 hours at night, which is pretty annoying. Anyway. We'll see how it goes.

And I will try that paper towel trick.
