Thursdays with Sam | Food!

New thing today - Sam has started food!

This morning, Katie told me I had the very fun responsibility of introducing carrots. They're one of my favorite foods, so I was hoping it would go well. and I must say - the first serving was ... maybe not so great. But after bananas at mid-day, he seemed a lot happier with the carrots this afternoon.

She also told me "food is fun" at this stage. Indeed! It's certainly a touch and taste experience. I also told her I maybe should've just fed him in the bathtub.

p.s. our neighbor passed away yesterday. I know his wife and family are feeling all the love and prayers from y'all - thank you!
Renie's shawl ... slow progress

p.p.s. we are watching the news about the terrible highway collapse in Atlanta. Katie normally travels that route every afternoon, but today - she had a business dinner downtown. She's fine (and taking a different route home tonight) ... and while she's worried about what her commute will be for the next two weeks, she's glad it's just two weeks. Her new commute won't be anywhere close to that intersection. It seems a miracle - but so far, no one's been hurt. and I've got plenty of time to find a different route to visit her.

I love the progression of Sam's expressions (and the first one would definitely be my reaction to mushed carrots)! Sending sincere sympathy and prayers to Renie and her family. I'm very glad to hear Katie is okay; she was the first person I thought of when I read the news and I hope her commute is only minimally affected for the next two weeks. Wishing you a quick, easy, and traffic-free route from your house to your two favorite grandsons!

Adorable food fun pics, beautiful shawl. So sorry about your neighbor. Scary news about the highway collapse -- so fortunate that Katie was elsewhere. Amazing that no one was hurt (and so happy that Andrew is not in ATL at the moment)!

Yay for carrots! I saw that fire on the news and thought of you all, I'm glad to hear that it's nothing more than an inconvenience.

What great pictures Mary! So funny. Sam certainly is a handsome guy. Sending prayers of peace to Renie. Like, Bonny, you and Katie were the first ones I thought of when I heard about the highway collapse. So thankful no one has been hurt. Enjoy your weekend!

I was wondering if you would be at all affected by the freeway fire - I'm glad all is well with you and yours.

Sam and the carrots is an excellent pictorial story - those cheeks are KILLING me!

I'm sorry to hear about your neighbor, but I'm glad his sickness and any suffering is over for him. I think your shawl looks like the perfect comfort for his wife. Even the smallest compassionite thought can be a big deal to someone.

Man oh man, that is one cute kid -- with or without carrot-face!

I'm so sorry to hear about your neighbor. Wishing peace and light to his family.

The introduction of food always produces some interesting faces. Sam seems pretty happy overall with the carrots. : ) Very sorry to read about your neighbor. And glad to hear Katie is safe.

food! Sam is cute with that first taste - I would be apprehensive! Glad your daughter is okay and not part of a highway falling apart. Sorry to hear about your neighbor, sending prayers!

Those three pics of Sam are so different and so him, too! Glad he's liking those of my fave foods. Also glad that Katie didn't get caught in the traffic situation; Providence that no one was hurt. Blessings to your neighbors.

Food is fun! Sam looks quite happy to be an active participant in his feeding. Hope Katie's commutes aren't too challenging.
Very sorry for the loss to your neighbors family, to you, and to your neighborhood. Peace to you all, Mary.

Sam and carrots are too fun! But, I am sad for your neighbors - they will remain in my thoughts and prayers. But, that shawl! Kid Silk Haze and Nupps? You are the knitting master!

Was thinking if you also. Glad Katie was nowhere near! I'm sorry to hear your neighbor has passed. I'm sure the shawl will bring great comfort to his wife. And tell Sam I still think food is fun! ��
