Yup! He's a boy!
He doesn't care for green veggies. In fact, he cried when we gave him peas, but during a wagon ride on Friday, I caught him eating dead leaves. And he wasn't crying. Nope! Not a bit. He almost seemed to enjoy them. Dead and brown and crunchy and curled up and nasty looking.
Think I'll take the peas.

Hmm. I'm not sure. Have you ever tasted those peas? Blech!

I love that sober look on his face.

I love peas, but the baby food kind..well, I think I'd take dead leaves too. Blech...

That's a baby for you--sounds like Lilly!

Silas, Buddy, you crack us up! Your germ conscious mommy will never be able to protect you from "little boy germs." I'm sure you'll find something more "interesting" than dead leaves to put in your mouth before you know any better; I predict you'll probably survive it all just fine. Grandma loves you all bunches!!

Just for the record, there is a BIG difference between dirt and germs!
I do not mind dirt. In fact, on an "outside day" you should see my vagabond looking boys that have dug through mulch, climbed trees, played in the sandbox and tromped through every nasty puddle in the region. THAT I do not mind!!!
On the other hand, no, I do not let people pick their nose, use the restroom, dig in their ear, grab every door handle south of the Mason/Dixon, sneeze a few times and then expect to hold my baby.
Yes, there is a BIG difference between dirt and germs, but that is another post all in itself. (Pardon me as I step down off my soapbox and go teach school. :-)

I cannot believe how big your 'baby boy' is! That sober look on his face cracks me up every time! So cute

Hope likes leaves, too! Actually, she likes just about anything she can get into her mouth... she scares me, I am so afraid she is going to choke on some little item left on the floor by accident! Why children eat such thinks, I have no clue... even my older children have been found chewing on stuff that is nasty tasting and potentially dangerous! Strangely, I have struggled to get them to eat some normal stuff like some broccoli (they DO like corn and peas, etc).
Your son weighs alot! I thought Hope was big, but it sounds like Silas wins!

Martha, I've been state side and haven't had anyone's blog addresses to stay in touch, so I'm just now getting to see your baby boy that is all grown up since last time I saw a picture of him. ;) I tell you...Troy cannot deny him can he? =D I think he looks a lot like his Father. I hope you are doing good, peas, dried leaves and all.
