So yesterday Henry was 6 weeks old. He’s huge. 12 pounds 3 ounces and 24 inches long, means he’s gained 3 pounds and 3 inches since he was born. Yowza. He’s so fat that his armpits bulge out like a sumo wrestler.
I don’t really have anything of interest to blog about. I am wondering if any of you have ever tried to make a homemade pinata before, because I intend to for Violet’s birthday and I’m trying to think of something interesting for her and her cousins to hit (possibly some aunts and uncles too). Would it be weird to fill it with the charcoal brickets we’ll use for grilling lunch? I’m just picturing the look on their faces the second it splits open…a mad dash towards the loot…yells of “Yaaay!…wait. What?” Pinatas are awesome. Oh, and just so you know, filling a pinata with baggies of carrot and celery sticks is LAME. If you really want your kids to eat healthy, giving them a baggy of vegetables to get over their disappointment that the vegetables aren’t candy probably isn’t the greatest way to reinforce the message that vegetables are a good thing.
I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this yet, but Henry is growing in a solid head of hair where all his hair fell out. It’s definitely blond, and its all growing in at the same length and thickness making him look like he has a tiny buzz cut on the top of his head.
