Baby spinach

I recently posted about my son's second birthday.

You've come a long way, baby!

I've been spending a lot of time lately, thinking back to that time, two years ago, when he was a little newborn, and I was learning so much. Learning things like how to best calm him down when he was upset, how to survive on only two hours of sleep. Things like that. I was expecting to learn things like that. But there was one thing that really surprised me. And that was learning what babies do with the milk once they drink it.

How can a baby turn milk into spinach? I swear to God, every time you change a newborn's diaper, there is a big mess of chopped spinach in there. How? At first, I thought that maybe we could make some money off of this spinach, but then I thought better of it. I guess that last year's spinach-related E-coli outbreak shows that I wasn't the only one thinking this way.

Anyhow, I just wanted to pass along that information for any of you who have newborn babies, or who are expecting newborn babies or who might one day have newborn baby. Be prepared for the spinach poops.

I haven't been able to eat spanakopita for two years.

The only thing worse than the sight, is the sound... an expulsion that rocks the stroller, usually in the midst of a crowded lineup at the drugstore or grocery... "no really, it was her!" point to the 3 mth old angelic little girl in the stroller... raised brows from the lineup, "yeah, right!"
