Semi-Boring Video

One of the best gifts I got for Mothers' Day was a food tower from Harry and David from my dad and Christy. The Harry and David pears are so yummy and soft that they just melt in your mouth. Unfortunately for me, Shelby LOVES them also. I've been learning to share...Anyway, here's an amusing video of her totally enthralled with a slice of pear. Enjoy, and try not to go to sleep!

It was the best Mothers' Day I've ever had, and it was all about the food. Bryon made his famous green chili chicken enchiladas for me, Mom, and Jeff. Just like always, I ate every last bite. Then, Mom brought over the most delicious banana pudding for dessert. The guys went fishing, so Mom, Shelby, and I did a little shopping. Shelby loves to shop with Mama and Mimi and did such a great job just looking around and taking it all in. We had to re-fuel with more banana pudding after we were done!

After Mom and Jeff left, Bryon and I went to dinner at Sweet Tomato, a salad buffet place. What fun! Shelby ate a little of everything we had including corn, peas, cucumber, squash, beets, corn bread, macaroni and cheese, a strawberry, a black olive, some blueberry muffin, ice cream, and cookies. The only thing she didn't seem to like was the corn bread. It made my day to see her enjoying all the new tastes and textures and loving every minute of it.

Thanks to everyone for the good wishes and great company!

Swimming 101

Shelby started swimming lessons today. While she wasn't the star of the class, she didn't scream and cry like 2 of the students. It was a little chilly, and her bottom lip was quivering by the end of class. Hopefully she will take a long nap this afternoon!
