On our Way to that Burger!

He did not eat a hamburger today.
But he did eat two small bites of hamburger meat.
Can I get a woot-woot?!

My boy is making some serious progress. 
He's completely off baby food.
It's all about pureed table foods and even some chewables.
After 2 and 1/2 years, Owen is off baby foods.
That's worth some celebrating.

God is so good.

And in other news?
The bigs and Todd are still here and still making us smile.

And we sent Owen out to wake them up this morning and this is what we found:

And this may be the reason it took the diva a little bit longer to wake up than the boys:

Comfy, Isaac?

Donnie and Cinda are here spoiling us rotten right now.
They treated us to dinner last night, and today, Todd and Donnie took Emma Grace, Isaac, and Abby into New York City while Cinda went above and beyond the call of duty and helped me pin Owen down during some allergy testing. (Which came back negative by the way. Yay.) Cinda and I got to go meet another friend for dinner tonight and the time away from everything to laugh with good friends was just what I needed.

So to sum up, life in New Jersey continues.
Tomorrow is our half way point.
And even though I'm sure there will be more rough days ahead,
I'm so thankful for the day that was today.
I'm so thankful for the hamburger meat eating, no more allergen testing, and 25 pound weight victories of today.


  1. OK, the pic of Isaac getting comfy (both pics) is going to have me laughing for a VERY long time! Too funny!
    Wonderful victories today! Great friends, great support, great love all the way around. Iknow there are more great days ahead. Loved talking with you tonight. Now.....one more view of those hysterical pics and I'll laugh my way down to sleep! Love to all :D

  2. Oh my, post full of blessings...hamburger meat, family together, brother smothering sister in her sleep, dinner out, great friends being great friends AND the halfway point. You def get a WOOT WOOT!!

  3. Poor, poor EG. I am so glad you caught that evidence digitally.

    Amazing what can be accomplished in 2.5 weeks!!

  4. WAHOO!! That is definite progress. He'll be chowing down some chicken nuggets before we know it. So glad you are having fun this week. I think Isaac inherited his sleep patterns from Sarah Ellen. Bring back fond memories? Love to all of you.

  5. You really needed all these wonderful moments so that you could keep on going. A real boost! Hurray!!!
