Lily still is working full time. She is a normal little baby girl, crying, pooping and puking like a 2 month old. This is an artistic rendition of what happened this week at work – she literally puked on command on our Customer Experience Manager’s desk. It was hilarious. He was making little baby faces at her and saying playfully, “Don’t you puke on my desk. Don’t you do it.” And blacccch, she opened her mouth and sallied forth such a lovely gusher that she missed her own outfit and hit his desk squarely.
At home, the garden is growing amazingly! We are swimming in zucchini and yellow squash. Every single thing we baked or made this week had squash, squash, squash. We’re even juicing the zucchinis in our morning kale juice. Potatoes look to be the next crop that we may have overplanted. We just harvested a new crop of potatoes from our not-deer proof garden. This is maybe 1/100th of the potatoes in the garden. I’m a little terrified of all the things I’ll be learning to do with them. I’m thinking that I’ll end up learning how to make potato chips and give away homemade batches of potato chips for Christmas this year!
We were so happy and pleased when Uncle Erik and Aunt Cheriss came to visit this week. It was great to have them over and I remain astounded at how good Uncle Erik is with toddlers. He’s a natural and clearly, judging from Lily’s expression, does pretty good with babies too. I think the look on Erik’s face (and the look of giggly satisfaction on Lily’s face) comes from a rather impressive toot that Lily had just let out =) We are pushing Erik hard to add to the Faiola family grandchild total. This week looks like it will be a busy one. Grandma is supposed to come visit (yay!) and I’m starting to get ready for the Soap Crafting Book Release Party in Bellingham. If you’re local PNW, I’d love to meet you in person and celebrate =) Have a great week everyone!
