Pleasantly full belly.

Made grilled cheese sandwiches (ok, toasted actually, big deal) and Campbell's tomato soup. Very good. We all had it, too, even the baby. :) He loooved it, I was very impressed, he gobbled up his sandwich so fast he had trouble chewing it, and polished off the soup I was feeding him in an impressive manner as well.

It's been a tiring weekend. The baby's been teething, I believe - he's been awfully... chewy, putting things in his mouth and biting them, which he doesn't usually do nowadays. He's also been craving his pacifier all the time. So, he's either sucky or chewy, and I'm guessing chewy, which implies teething.

Apparently my wife finally got tested and does indeed have an allergy to wheat. Which means it's increasingly possibly the baby's diarrhea is caused by the same thing. It's been better, recently, and with any luck if it is that he'll outgrow it in time, but it still sucks. Then again, I can't say I've noticed any real correlation between him eating wheat and him getting it. So it's hard to say. If he is allergic to wheat, it'd suck, as almost every type of finger-food and baby-snack out there has some wheat in it. Next time I go shopping I'll buy as many non-wheat things as I can find and see if it helps him.

Fortunately, today seems like a quieter day than yesterday. Yesterday they had me up at sometime around 7 am taking care of them, and never let me take a real break all day. A few minutes here or there, and at one point the baby napped and the boy played his nintendo so I got an hour or so off, but that was it. Fed them, sat with them, played with them, took care of them, bathed them, cooked for them... was a long day, and I didn't get any chores done. Sigh. And now I'm so tired today (also because I was stupid and stayed up later than I should've last night) I dunno that I'll really get anything done today. At least I finally put away the groceries after a week. (Heh.)

That and the heat is really getting on my nerves. I hate hot weather, it turns me into a slug, and we're definitely getting some now. I know, I know, all of you more southerly people probably don't consider it warm until it hits three digits, but I'm not from down south, and this is too damn hot. I don't mind the cold weather, I can always put on some socks and a sweater and bundle up and make myself warm, and having multiple computers always on helps with that. But the heat... ugh... I'm gonna go turn the AC up. This is going to get expensive, I bet. Sigh. At least this apartment has good AC, it has 4 different units, one in each bedroom, one in the kitchen, one in the living room. So that's good. Of course, there's a lot of glass (a bunch of windows, several quite large, plus the whole balcony, which has glass doors and big windows) so I'm sure a lot of it will fly out into the ether rather than cooling the apartment like it should. *grumble*
