I LOVE dried fruit. I'm not a huge jam person so we bought these peaches with the intentions of drying them. We had to wait a day for them to really get ripe. Then they all turned ripe at the same time. Logan began to panic, but I wasn't worried. He was reminded of his youth when his mom would get boxes and boxes of fruit for canning. They would all turn ripe at the same time and his mom would enlist the help of him and his brothers.
PEARS - - -
Right now our house has a wonderful spicy pear aroma floating about. I'm making peach butter in the crock pot. It's been cooking down all day and smelling delightful.
My friend heard about a great deal on pears. A bushel for $16. I got a bushel and a half. I dried them, of course, and made puree for Trevor. With the extra pears I made puree for pear butter. The first batch went in this morning. I'll probably leave it on low over night (in the crock pot)? It still has a ways thicken up and it's almost bed time.
We didn't take pictures this time around (of the pears). Life has been pretty busy.

Trevor is 17 lbs - 45%. He was 70% at 4 months. He is very active and moves around all the time.He is 27" long - 75%. He's still on the same curve for height. He's growing longer and thinning out. He's still a little chunk, but his moving body is thinning him out.
Brennan loves sharing his toys with him. He's trying to physically put a toy in Trevor's hand.
He's sitting!! About 6 months exactly he started sitting on his own. He can last for quite a while before falling over.
