So many of them around here.
I was finally convinced to go on retreat last weekend because I was assured by all that I wouldn't miss any of Thomas' firsts - word, crawl, walk, etc. Not true. I missed the first (and 2nd) projectile vomitting! I also missed the first (and 2nd) solo Daddy bath. Poor Daddy. Yes, Thomas had the stomach bug, from Sunday til about Wednesday. But as is our little man - he didn't skip a beat. He was all smiles and his usual jovial self. He threw up again monday night with me and I almost didn't know. He was sitting in his high chair sipping his juice and made a funny noise. I looked at him and he was smiling and sticking his sippy cup right back in his mouth. Too funny!!
Thomas also had his first ice cream this week! (cause once you're over the stomach bug, you definitely deserve ice cream!) It was so cool. He definitely liked the taste, but was a little confused about the cold.
I've had a few firsts this week - and they relate to my annual goals for myself. In an effort to eat healthier, I've been wanting to incorporate fish in my diet. So I cooked fish for the first time this weekend, and it was Tilapia - which is the first time I've had it. My brother came down and we had fish tacos (YUM!). Paulo had the chicken version - he detests fish. And I had grilled it on the indoor grill pan which was easy, so I might do this more often.
And finally - FINALLY - my first book of the year, and in years! I am reading Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, and I am LOVING it! I'm relating to it on a lot of levels, which is why I'm soaking it in. So friends out there in cyberspace, I might actually finish one book this year, which I think means I am no longer in the running for illiteracy!! Yippee!!!
