My Kid Can SLEEP

I think I'm going to rename this blog to MAXIMUS because that's all I ever write about. Anyway, I know I'm lucky to have a kid who can sleep like a rock. These are only a few of the pictures I take oh him when he sleeps through errand running.

We took him out of his car seat and carried him through the health food store and he slept the entire time. Do you see those smile lines on Jesse's face? Oh man, they helped me fall in love with him!

He even fell asleep on the way to a restaurant and slept through 80% of our meal. It was sort of like a date for us!

As I'm typing this blog post, our duct work is being torn out. It's REALLY LOUD in here and the guy doing it has a booming voice to add to it. And guess who is napping through it all?

Because My Kid is Cute

I recently took some pictures of Maximus that are just so Maximus. They're him.

Feed Your Kids THESE!

I'm really not telling you what to do, but why not give them a try? Lately Maximus doesn't want to eat very much. He eats his typical huge breakfast, but then he doesn't want lunch or dinner. He'll maybe have a couple bites of tofu and whatever kind of weird pasta we're eating for dinner, but he's not into food this week. I do notice he finishes the snack I send with him to the kid thing at they gym while we work out.

I found these today at our local health food store and dude! THEY ARE SO GOOD! They are so rich and sweet and I can rest easily knowing they're not bad for Maximus at all. If any of the 2 people who actually read this blog want some and can't find them, I'll send you a bag. They're THAT good.

On a less preachy note, when Maximus and I walked into the health store, all 4 cashiers erupted into laughter. The store wasn't very busy because it was in the middle of the day, so I was wondering what the hell was so hilarious about us. One woman yelled, "the hat!" while a guy walked up. They left their registers and came closer to Maximus who was delighting in the attention. They all wanted to know about Maximus' shark hat. When I told them the makes adult sizes AND they're handknit in Nepal and not made in China, a couple of the cashiers went into the back and ordered one! Maximus has the worn the hat every single time we've left the house since he got it on Christmas Eve. And every day someone makes a cool remark about it.

To Each His Own

Doesn't everyone eat yogurt with an onion?

Beefy Breakfast

This morning as I was preparing Maximus' breakfast, I actually noticed how much food it was. And it's not just typical breakfast food- I'm pretty sure eats about a million grams of fiber in this one meal:

1 organic flax waffle with natural peanut butter
2 vegetable sausages
a bowl of organic no added sugar applesauce
a bowl of Optimum Power cereal- this cereal is SO HEAVY! It's like eating a bowl of tasty bricks.

*He ended up eating this all PLUS an additional bowl of cereal.

And I just noticed he pooped. Huh, wonder why that happened.

No, it's spaghetti made out of black beans. It's spectacular. Try it. 20 grams of protein per serving.
Maximus' plate includes: black bean spaghetti, tofu noodles, peas and sprouted wheat bread with Smart Balance Light.

This is what Maximus dragged me from to kitchen to see. He was so proud. He and Jesse built this together:
