I couldn't make all this stuff up. I promise!


Cailyn, I'm glad you like to eat. And it seems you inherited your Aunt Melynda's awesome metabolism - there's not a spare piece of meat on you anywhere!


I am not really lovin' the fact that you've not yet outgrown the I'm-a-cute-and-curious-baby-so-I-put-everything-in-my-mouth routine. Seriously. I'm over it.



Lest I forget, here is your Top Five list of things you shouldn't put in your mouth (but you did anyway). It grossed me out. And I couldn't eat for a month!

5. Makeup. Liquid foundation. A whole mouth full. Yuck, yuckity, yuck!
And lucky me -- I buy the sweat proof, no-budge kind. So it took me forever to get it off of you, your clothes, hands, face! And I think it took even longer to get the taste out of your mouth.

4. Dirty, muddy rocks. Why do you insist on putting these in your mouth? The curious baby act, I suppose. You suck the dirt off, then spit the rocks out. Gross me out!

3. Anything edible you can find in the trashcan. And I do mean anything. It's disgusting. Why do you like to dumpster dive in our kitchen?

2. A squished, dehydrated centipede. With all it's little once-wiggly-wriggly legs. Like a hundred legs, Cai-Cai. I could have yuked. 1. Snails. We're not French. And even if we were, we wouldn't eat Escargot. Sorry, chickadee.

I am ALL too familiar with this stage as well...mainly because Emma still hasn't outgrown it. She ate a snail about a year ago as well. I don't get it.

Oh may....the boys haven't been too bad about putting things in their mouths....now watch, now that I've said that I'll have some great story to blog about tomorrow on things they have put in their mouths.
