This Morning I

played with cars.

whined when Mom asked me to jump off the bottom step so she could take a picture.

fell off the step while whining.

was really just milking the situation for attention, but Mom kept snapping pictures.

eventually jumped off the bottom step.

played with my cars again.

put my cars in perilous danger and yelled, "Help!" a million times.

went to the playground up the street and then pitched a royal fit when Mom said it was time to go. She had to throw me over her shoulder and carry me home. She wasn't very happy about that.

Love, Blake

Every time I use soy sauce in a recipe, I immediately crave sushi. A wonderfully kind woman at church brought me most of the supplies I'd need to make my own (and a container full of some sushi rolls she made. Totally almost cried.).

I bought the rest of the ingredients I'd need to make California and Philadelphia rolls (which I was able to find, no problem. But I still have a hard time finding apple pie filling).

I went to Chinatown and spent too much money on a sushi dish set at Pearl River Mart.

I made the rice (which wasn't hard at all).

I assembled the rolls.

That's right. They make special soy sauce for sushi and sashimi.

So, not perfect. But delicious!
And I stuffed myself so full of sushi that I'm no longer craving it. In fact, I was so uncomfortably full that I probably won't crave sushi for another 6 months or so.

I cannot say the same thing about the consumption of M&M's. I could eat my weight (and probably have) in those and still crave them.

Labor Day

7 month bump
Hopefully in 3 months I'll be having a very different labor day!

I haven't done a very good job of documenting this growing bump of mine mainly because I've been too tired to really think about it. And most days I DO NOT feel like having my picture taken.

So there it is, posterity.
