Carrie and Cooper, our friends at high elevation, are heading in to the home-stretch. Baby #2 is coming very soon. And with cooling temperatures and the onset of snow, this Leadville family has headed indoors to prepare for baby’s arrival. Nesting is underway.
“The Leadville summer ended with a couple of good snow storms and chilly temperatures, meaning much of the garden crop was pulled by Hattie (with some help) and processed into baby food that is now frozen and awaiting the day the little man wants to try some solids. Beets, carrots, and spinach mostly … plus we arranged to get two boxes of 2nds apples that were turned into about 15 quarts of applesauce in one epic day of canning activities. Hattie is actually still working on last year’s batch, but figuring we’ll need all the extra we can get with an extra mouth in the house starting in six months or so. Many of Hattie’s gDiaper disposable inserts (wet ones only) helped to create the nutrients absorbed by the veggies that now constitute what will be some of little brother’s first bites of solid food.”
