Mmmm, carrots

Mikey got his first taste of carrots last night. I never thought of carrots having a strong flavor, but when all you ever eat is milk with the occasional super mushed up rice, I guess the flavor might be strong. :) Check out 0:45, 0:55, 1:16, and 1:59 for some really great faces.

Also, if you haven't checked out our youtube channel in a while, you really should. There are some great videos of Mikey there. (click here in case you're looking at this in a reader and can't click the button to the right)

What do you think?

I'm a horrible person

First, I participated in a facebook fight about how "boughten" isn't a word, and now this...

Remember a few years ago when I got a text from someone I didn't know? Remember my regret at "[missing] out on a good opportunity to mess with the minds of strangers" and all that? Well lucky me, I got a text from a stranger on my lunch break, and took a little time to mess with him/her. Here's the conversation:

Person I Don't Know: Hi Koriann. what's the name of the new lady at the library ... she's only been working there for a coule months,
Me: Bertha.
PIDK: her name wasn't bertha ... she is in charge of teaching the classes on "how to use the library" ... she came from california
Me: Oooohh... Stacy?
PIDK: nope ... i think she might be over the front desk
Me: Did she order a salad for lunch today?
PIDK: who am i texting?
Me: Not korrian. Sorry. I have no idea who you are. Can you blame me for messing with you?
PIDK: nope ... sorry for wasting your time
Me: No problem. Sorry for wasting yours. :) hope you find that lady's name.

Again, this is a complete transcript of the texts, so yes, she spelled couple as coule, and I spelled Koriann wrong. but moving on.

When PIDK said sorry for wasting my time, I felt a little bad so I wished her luck. But I sure didn't feel bad enough to not do this again when I get another text from an unknown source.

This post is seriously and literally (used with its correct meaning) about poop. It's Mikey's poop I'd like to address, so at least there's that. But if you're grossed out, my feelings won't be hurt if you sit this one out. However, to encourage you to continue on, it's not that long and I won't be posting pictures.

About a week ago, Mikey started having rice cereal twice a day. Since then his poop has slowly started to change. Of course, he started with the newborn meconium (tar consistency with no strong smell, if I recall correctly). But he has moved from the yellow, with looks-like-sesame-seeds-but-really-it's-curdled-milk clumps that almost smells like buttery popcorn, into what he's pooping now, which is about the consistency of wet cement and has an unmistakable this-is-poop smell. (All you other parents, tell me I don't have the poop descriptions spot-on?) It's just another sign he's getting bigger. And leaves me none too excited for when he starts trying other foods that may will leave his diaper smelling a tad more pungent.

Happy birthday, Hayley!

I tend to get long winded. So here are the main things I want to say, in a bulleted list. Because bullets calm me down and make what I have to say a little less wordy.
  • I hope you have the best birthday you could ever have. 
  • You're my favorite person and you deserve a great birthday!
  • I love you so much! 
  • I can be exactly myself with you, and you love me back. 
  • We are best friends, and can do anything together. 
  • Even just sit and do nothing.
  • You're my baby mama! 
  • You brought Mikey to us, and you are the best mother in the world to him. 
  • How much you love him and care for him just builds up how much I love you! 
  • I love our little family!
I love ya, Hayley. Here's to many more birthdays together. :)

Quick tip No. 9

If you feel like you have something in your teeth, you probably do.
