So what I was supposed to do was boil the water in the pot and pour it in the glass dish, then bake it for 35 minutes. What I did instead was light the incorrect burner underneath the glass dish. Then I sat there wondering why the water wasn't boiling until the glass shattered.
I was able to make something edible on the second try, but I don't know how I'm going to make it until Kristen is taking care of me again. Why, oh why did she have to leave me. :-(

Speaking of which, we decided to head down to AZ for an extended stay to keep Leo (and me!) out of the cold for as long as we can. We'll be there from Tuesday until January. (No. I'm not kidding.)

Also, the other day I was trying to look through the mail and Leo kept grabbing it. I gave him a page of the adds to keep him occupied and when I looked down a few minutes later this is what I saw. (If you blow it up you can see a little black mustache. Sick, huh?)

Leo has been such a stinker about going to sleep lately. He absolutely refuses to take a nap and just runs a hundred miles an hour until he is so cranky he can't stand it. Then we can usually trick him into falling asleep for a little while.
Last Sunday he kept falling asleep and then waking up as soon as I set him down. I finally laid down with him and just rolled him off of me once he was out. Then he slept so long we had to wake him up so he wouldn't be up all night.
He falls asleep on Ty a lot. Probably because Ty just lets him cry himself out.
Lately Leo just can't get enough of looking at his hands. Half the time he looks like he's trying to fight you. He's getting pretty good at picking stuff up and, of course, puts everything he can get a hold of into his mouth.
Last night we had stuffed pumpkin for dinner and we let Leo feel the guts before we threw them out. He actually seemed to think they were pretty cool. And he thinks pumpkin seeds are pretty tasty too. (Don't worry Raygon, we only gave him a little taste!)
I don't remember when this was, a few weeks ago maybe? Ty got Leo dressed and he put him in these newborn pajamas that he's never worn before. They were way too small and Leo ended up looking like a little cheerleader. (Short shorts, bare midriff, writing on the buns. . .) And of course we didn't take him out of it. We just spent all afternoon laughing at him. (I know, we're mean.)
Looks good, huh? It really isn't. I mean, they tasted okay, but they were a little too dry for my taste. They did however, end up tasting slightly salty. Unexpected, but not a bad combo. Next time I'll just use more oil or something.
So I washed the lion costume (According to the manufacturers instructions) and Lion's mane turned into an afro. Interesting fashion statement Lion. Very interesting.

I know it doesn't look like much, but it is pure mango, chicken, rice deliciousness! It's filled with good stuff like onions, cilantro and lime which gives it a homemade salsa flavor. Yummy! And it was so easy. (If you want the actual recipe you can find it here. I'm too lazy to type it out right now.) Thank you We Heart Food for making all of my (mango, chicken, rice) dreams come true!
I have some Leo updates too, but I'm on the laptop right now and don't have access to my pictures. Maybe tomorrow.

This weekend we exchanged babysitting with a couple that lives up the street from us. They have a 4 year old and a baby who's just a week younger than Leo. We decided that we're glad we didn't have twins. (Ty's not angry, he just kind of looks like it in this shot.) We got to go out to dinner without worrying about keeping Leo quiet, which is always nice. Then we went window shopping at the mall. Sometimes I worry because we think things like that are fun now. I guess that's what happens when you don't get much baby-free time.
On Saturday we cleaned the whole house. Apparently we live on a prime real estate spot for spiders because there have been so many of them in our house lately. It's really starting to make me angry. I sprayed bug spray around all the windows and doors. And the fireplace. I can't wait until we're not too poor to have the bug man come!

I also have a new product on my business site. You can check it out here if you're interested.

*Funny story about our trip. The road winds all around through the mountains and at one point we missed it. (The road, I mean.) I guess we weren't paying attention or something because all of a sudden we were half on and half off and we couldn't get back on the road for 30 feet or so because the shoulder was too steep. We were a little worried because we were scraping bottom, but we made it back on the road again and we didn't even break the car.

I've been trying to get a picture of Leo sticking his tongue out for several weeks now and I just can't manage it. Every time I pull out the camera he stops doing it. And the only two times that he kept going the camera batteries died. By the time I got new batteries in he was done, the little stinker. Any how, today I had the genius idea to take a video instead. (Took me long enough, huh?)

I love this picture because I think it makes him look like a little hoodlum!
These last two are just for comparison. Look how much he's grown in two months!
