Baby likes roni


Why yes, as a matter of fact, the Baby is his own bed.  Nice.

Jacob seems to be growing by leaps and bounds this month.  A little background - this summer, our town got a new restaurant, Scotty's Brewhouse.  The food is upscale pub like, quite yummy, but also very family friendly.  If you are part of the VIP club, on Sundays and Tuesdays Kids Eat Free.  So, inadvertantly, we have started a bit of a tradition in eating there on Sundays after church.  It's hard to argue with Chris, who likes their burgers, when he says, "but on Sundays, kids eat free".  Between that and the deals they offer, we usually get some kind of discount every time we go, and end up spending whatever we would have elsewhere for a family of 5, just for the 2 of us.  Well, except that Jacob has learned he likes macaroni and cheese.

The last time we went (about 2 weeks ago, since we've only been making it to church every other week) Jacob started grunting for more bites of Sam's macaroni and cheese.  Now if you know Sam, you know he is Disinclined to share when it comes to macaroni.  He did not like having to share with Jacob.  So we got Jacob his very own!  And he was a Big Fan.  

In fact, at one point, Daddy was not moving fast enough, he was distracted, and Jacob picked up the fork and started trying to feed himself.  That's a first.  He has tried for a spoon a couple times, but never grabbed the fork, and never gone back for more.  He was doing a pretty good job, especially considering it was a full size fork! 

Between Sam and Jacob, we're going to keep Kraft in business.
