Vitamins and Vegetables

Just a quick update to let you know that we have been to the farmer's markets and bought some fresh, organic vegetables and fruit today. I wish we had found this place earlier because the produce is beautiful and there is also a big toddler playground. It is located on a farm so all the kids go and see the animals and the gardens where the vegetables are grown. The strawberries are something special because they are the sweetest I have ever tasted. Unfortunately, the bread is so sweet it tastes more like pound cake. (this has been an ongoing issue) Needless to say, Jack is the only one that likes it with vegemite on toast.

We have had some trouble giving Jack his liquid vitamins so we have only been pushing the point on a weekly basis however considering all of his illness lately we have found some new multi-vitamins in the form of gummy bears and he is loving these everyday. We are eating only organic vegetables and only eating at home for the next two weeks before our big holiday(except the big birthday on Friday). Jack is still tired and sleeping at least 4 hours a day. He is even sleeping in until 8 most days. So hopefully with all of the vegetables and vitamins, Jack will soon be bouncing back.

That's the plan.

Here is Jack taking his Vitamins like a good boy.




Notice how he follows them with his eyes and keeps track of where we put them.
