Wes had his first "real" food today!

While Wesley was napping, I baked a pot pie (not from scratch, of course). I then pureed it in a little Magic Bullet blender (generic, of course) and separated out a few servings. I could hardly wait for him to get up so he could eat, which is not something I normally look forward to. When he woke up, I told him that I had a surprise for him to eat. Big surprise here...he wasn't excited.

I sat him down in his chair and started feeding him. He wasn't loving it (at least I don't think he was), but he didn't fight it. He ate 4.5 ounces of it, then another 3 ounces of applesauce. So I would say that it was a good first attempt at regular food. Tomorrow we're going to puree some chicken and noodles that my mom made me since I've been sick with flu symptoms (feeling MUCH better now and it wasn't the pig flu).

Has anyone seen the movie "Gran Torino"? Damon got it from the library the other day, and it's a weird movie!! Clint Eastwood plays a strange character. We haven't finished it yet, but it has made me laugh quite a few times.

Here's an old school picture of me from a college friend of mine...look at that long hair!! I got it cut off in college and have never wanted to grow it back.
