10 Months


Surely not.  But yes, she already 10 months.  Crawling everywhere, pulling up on everything, fascinated by every movement, texture, taste, and possibility. (Right now she has pulled the garlic out of the onion box and is chewing on it) She has finally reached the realms of spoken word..."Da Da" it is...her one and only word that she says on purpose.  She has her very funny unique fake laugh and then her uncontrolled real laugh when she's being tickled or when something is funny to her.  I love them both.  She loves looking out the front window, it's just her height.  She can finally wave, it's often with two hands and she uses her whole arm.  It's more of a flap really.  We're still working on trying to change her diaper without it being a big horrible thing that makes her cry and feel like she needs to escape the torture immediately.  She's been trying to get her two front teeth.  Mama's chin makes a good teething toy.  She was up every three hours at first, but now she's back to sleeping through the night.  Still no front teeth though.  She's growing and changing at an incredible rate and it's hard to remember all that she's up to, but there what's on my mind right now.

And now for the red chair pictures.  I took them right after she woke up from her nap, so she actually sat there without trying to move everywhere.

Too Many Green Tomatoes!

After the first frost I went and picked all of our leftover tomatoes.  I got a lot of green tomatoes.  I decided to challenge myself to making an entire meal using green tomatoes.  I found several recipes online. 

And  I still had all of these tomatoes left over!

I think my favorite recipe was for the Green Tomato Biscuits.  But everything turned out ok.  Our neighbors were the Guinea pigs for the meal and I don't think they got sick from eating so many green tomatoes.

So if you want any green tomatoes please come and get 'em and if you know anymore good green tomato recipes they are welcome in our kitchen!
