It's been a while...

Probably nobody is reading this anymore, but here's a quick update. The wee one below is Rowan Beverly Chow, and there are gobs of pictures of her in Stirling's photo album. She is now 4 1/2 months old, and is a happy little bug. She is starting to get interested in food and had her first taste of beer a few days ago. Nothing like getting the little ones on the good stuff right away. We are letting her go at her own pace and won't be forcing stuff down her throat until she can actually swallow properly. But she did like the beer.

I haven't posted for a long time because I haven't made up any recipes. I had about the worst possible birth experience short of an emergency c-section and my recovery has been arduous, to say the least, both physically and mentally. At some point I may post an essay on my experiences with BEING food, and failing somewhat at that, but suffice it to say that I've had some trouble breastfeeding (just not enough juice) but I've never given up and aside from the odd bout of mastitis (nasty!) it has gotten better.

I will try to post more later.
