The meal (served on these pewter plates) was delicious. It consisted of tomato soup (good even though I don't usually like that kind of soup) delicious garlic bread, half of a roasted chicken, ONE beef rib (which was sooo good and I was sad there was only one), and for dessert an apple pastry. All eaten without cutlery. It was a pretty fun experience.
There were eight different knights and we were cheering for the black and white knight who ended up WINNNG! Our knight was the champion. Althought there was only technically about 20 seconds of actual jousting, there were a lot of horses and "knights" doing tricks and stuff. I will say the downfall of the night was when they announced everyone's birthdays/anniversaries/bachelor parties/Valentines dates (I didn't know we could do this). It seriously took like 20 minutes and I'm pretty sure Nate and I are the only ones who didn't have our names read. Oh well... It was still fun!

Well today was a very interesting day. The BIG news is that Rachael's two bottom teeth have finally poked through. She wouldn't keep her mouth still long enough for me to get a picture, but I was very excited about this!! I discovered them when she was gnawing on my fingers at the park.
This evening as Rachael was sitting in her borrowed Jumperoo watching Baby Einsteins (which happens nightly so I can eat dinner and do some dishes) she definately had a little issue... ok ok, it was a HUGE explosion. Ever since the introduction of solid foods we've definately noticed a difference in her diapers. It was so disgusting but I don't actually think of it as poop and was laughing hysterically as I was wiping her back off. She was standing (with assistance from me, obviously) and to top it off, she peed as she as standing there! That made me laugh even more. Needless to say the next thing we did was hop in the tub/sink and after a dinner of oatmeal/sweet potatoes and applesauce she is now sound asleep listening to primary songs.
I guess it wasn't really that eventful of a day, but the whole diaper explosion experience just seemed so mom-ish to me. I guess when you don't think of poop as poop, just as a mess to clean up, you really are a mom.
P.S. I can't change the layout of this post and it is driving me CRAZY!!

This is one of my new favorite pictures of Rachael. This dress is so cute and it was only five bucks!! And since she just turned six months old I need to get her portraits done, and this is going to be one of the outfits we're going to use. We are having a dilemma in this department however... I would love to go to Kiddie Kandids, but it would be quite expensive. So I'm debating between Sears, JCP, and Target. My bet is with Target but in NYC our only mode of transportation is the subway/cab so it either takes 39874 years to get there or costs an arm and a leg. We'll see... Nate also suggested buying a new camera (FINALLY) and just having me take the pictures... I don't know about that, I would really love to go to a studio and order professional prints but it is more on the expensive side. Oh I'm sure it will all work out in the end!!
