Plum Tuckered Out

Last night, Julie woke up about four in the morning, waking both daisy_knotwise and me. After laying around awake for an hour, I decided to get up and try to do something useful. An hour and a bit later, I crawled back into bed, lay around a while longer, and finally fell back asleep.

Only to be awakened by fuzzbucket_cat kneading my pillow.

*sigh* There was not nearly enough sleep last night for either Gretchen or me.

In an effort to improve our chances of sleeping, I suggested that we need to feed Julie more solid food. She's been happily munching away on Joe's Os and rice cakes, but it's been pretty much cereal and formula. So Gretchen looked in the cupboard this evening and pulled out some fruit medley, which Julie didn't care much for. Then she tried the plums. These were a bit more successful, but not wildly so, although they did entice Katie to come join the party with the result that there were plums in a great many places where no plums should be.

I volunteered to pick up some different baby food at the Jewel this evening, so there are now a wide variety of more savory baby foods for Julie to taste test. We'll see how that goes. And how she sleeps.

In the meantime, looking at Julie, I realize that strained plums make an unconventional, but moderately successful, form of mascara.
