First Juice

Derek had his first drink of anything other than water or breastmilk today. He ate all the sections of an organic grapefruit, and then I squeezed the juice left in the fruit into his cup.

He was wide-eyed about it, but quickly drank it all and requested the other half of the grapefruit to eat!

Good news, straggling House of the Moon readers…

I made a change, and now all entries will be written here and go direct to livejournal, which I couldn’t do before. I was writing over there and missing it over here, but now all is perfect, they can comment over there, and readers at lunesse.com can comment there. So, LJ folks, keep on commenting, I DO read them and am still very active in LJ, just starting the flow of entries somewhere else.

This journal has an RSS feed on livejournal, if you are reading this from there, this feed will go away, there’s no point in double dipping the same entry for readers over there. So friend me on LJ if you only are reading the RSS and want to still see what I am up to, as I will disable the rss feed soon.

Yay!

So, what am I up to?

Derek is a growing, sweet boy. He is walking, running, climbing chairs, begging for cheese, and generally being a mostly good sweetheart. He still isn’t the best sleeper, but more nights than not he makes it from 8 pm to 5:30, where I nurse him, and  he then sleeps till 7:30 or so. I am happy with this schedule, and I still enjoy spending quiet early morning hours with him.

It’s loud outside, some guy who owns a tree service seems to be slicing and dicing his own trees through a chipper. Derek and I had a playdate this afternoon, but it is gone, as that boy has a fever. We have not seen them for  literally months, and it sucks. It’s been a rough winter for sick.

I have a show in April that I am working as hard as I can to be ready for, a show I really enjoy doing. It’s at the Convention Center in Portland and it is free, with all sorts of guilds that make handmade things, metal, weaving, ceramics, woodworking…it is at the end of April so I am running out of time!

More later, on the garden, Let’s see if I can find a recent Derek photo to add… LJ readers have seen this one, but going forward,  no more  overlaps!
