1. I had a pomegranate for the first time. Yum! I made a salad with the pomegranate (only $1 at Aldi this week), cut apples, fresh spinach, and greek vinaigarette (I like Aldi's "Grandessa" brand best!). Yum times two!
2. Ada had peanut butter for the first time.
3. Ada broke out in hives for the first time. I called my Mom (an RN) and she told me to call First Nurse. Turns out, she's mildly allergic to peanuts. (I bet she will outgrow it though) No more tasting peanuts until she is a wee bit older.
5. Ada had baby benadryl for the first time. Yucky. You know how when you drink yucky tasting medicine, you kind of do a spastic shiver and shake because it's so gross? She did that, and it was pretty cute. :)

Ada, Chris, and Charlie (our dog) are all snoozing, and I'm listening to "early jazz" station on Pandora, will be reading books and pamphlets about breastfeeding (learning SO much!) for my job, and flipping through these magazines I borrowed from the library : Mothering (all about natural, simple, and healthful parenting!), Real Simple (Nov. 2009), Martha Stewart Living (Nov. 2009), Better Homes and Gardens (Nov. 2010), and Everyday with Rachael Ray (Nov. 2009).
Fellow moms, what do you like to do when your family is snoozing on a slow Sunday afternoon?
