Baby Stephen is one month old today - wow, time sure flies! He has been a very easy and mellow baby, and is taking our busy household in stride. If only he will start liking the car seat, the last major hurdle, the adjustment from six to seven kids will be complete.
While he still enjoys being carried in my arms much of the time, he has taken to napping nicely on his own, too. Which comes in handy on days like today, when I will be canning 50 lbs of tomatoes into sauce...
"only" two of these boxes are for us
... and preparing and freezing a 20-lb box of yellow peppers.
I don't get to choose when great deals on produce come up, so when they do, I have to make it work somehow.
Of course, my pesky family still expects to eat three times a day even on busy days like this, which is extremely inconvenient. I suppose I shouldn't get so carried away with putting up healthy food that I no longer have time to then feed it to them.
