Good Tidings

A fortuitous week all around with lots of good news to share!

1. The new kitchen design is working out beautifully.  We're still waiting on stools but the little kids have taken to standing on kitchen chairs pulled up to the island to watch me cook.  Better yet, they like to stand there and eat a snack while they watch.  Even better still, good, fatty, nutritious guacamole is becoming a favorite.

2. Though we continue to discover more annoying molluscum bumps on all of the kids, ZymaDerm appears to be working.  Roo's worst (and most obvious) patch of bumps is clearing up.  It didn't happen in the 30 days promised by the ZymaDerm guarantee, but they are exploding and vanishing now, about 6 weeks into treatment. 

3. Summer is here.  Our first CSA vegetable box of the season arrives today!  According to Angelic Organics, we're scheduled to receive purple and white scallions, various squash and zucchini, broccoli, oregano, cilantro, lots of cooking and salad greens, and the treasured single harvest garlic scapes.  I can hardly wait to get started.  Fresh organic greens salad with flank steak tonight, baby!

4. Last but certainly not least, Roo has reached another milestone recently - 21 pounds!  Dairy continues to agree with him and while it's still not his favorite food group, the addition of cheese, butter, and cream to foods he does like seems to be helping him pack on the ounces.  He's still no hulk for sure (but please don't tell him, especially if he's wearing his Incredible Hulk t-shirt!), but the pediatrician gave us the go ahead to wait and see before we have to go back to the food aversion specialist.  His next pediatrician appointment is in early July.  Do I hear 21.5 pounds? 

Not a bad start to summer.  Here's hoping the good tidings continue.
