I added a jar of wheat to my staples area, tucked right in between Honey Nut Cheerios and my favorite breakfast item, Coach's Oats (available at Costco).

Mike thinks that I have gone overboard on adding wheat to our diet, and honestly, he is right.

I add wheat berries to the following:
Ground hamburger or turkey (taco meat, casseroles)
Breakfast potatoes
Stir Fry

We now have 45o lbs. of wheat (in buckets) neatly tucked behind our loveseat because I have nowhere to put it! Gotta love food storage.

Do you have any great wheat recipes or favorite dishes to add wheat to?

Jasper's First Dental Visit

Officially it's called a "smile check", and Jasper's first one was Oct. 30 -- the day after Trunk or Treat. We left Trunk or Treat with NO CANDY. Jasper doesn't really know what candy is yet, and I figured that Jasper has a lifetime of Halloween candy ahead of him.

I am guessing that not many patients show up in their dinosaur PJ's. I was not about to wake Jasper up before I needed to. We just did a quick outfit change after we got there.

Being a first time mom, I had no idea that baby teeth are supposed to have space in between them. Jasper's top teeth have that space, but his bottom teeth are right next to each other. The dentist told us clean his bottom 2 teeth well, as there is no natural space for food to pass through.

He chose a blue car from the toy box. If I would have known they hard cars in there I would have asked if he could have had the car in the beginning he would have been more willing to sit still.

See you in one year Dr. Campbell!

Little Blue Pillow

Since we made Miss J's baby brother a tiny pillow, I thought it would be fun to use some scraps and make one for Jasper too.

It works great to put behind his back when he is riding around in the top of the shopping carts. He usually has a lot of extra room in the top of the cart, so the pillow makes him a little more secure up there.

Jasper just likes to carry it around the house.
