Operation 100 Goals--Day 9

Goal:  Have children and become a successful father

          Today was a busy one for the Martin men.  Caleb and I were up at about 7:15 AM for a feeding.  After eating for about 30 minutes and playing with some toys for 30 more, Caleb went down for his first nap.  This gave me a chance to find a turkey soup recipe (dinner tonight) and plan some other meals for the rest of the week so that I could then make a shopping list.  Caleb had an appointment with the nurse practitioner today at 11:00 AM to get some shots, so it made sense for us to do our shopping afterward.
            I am sad to report that I was unable to get a good picture of Caleb buried in groceries in the shopping cart due to a low phone battery—this will have to suffice:

And, as you can see, shots and shopping tuckered the little guy right out.  Notice the cereal and avocado to Caleb’s right—those were his special purchases…which brings me to the next exciting portion of our day.
            After getting the stock going for the turkey soup while Caleb finished napping, he and I whipped up (yes, that's a pun right there) some homemade baby food via the ol’ Baby Bullet—check out the pics below:

Nothing says “yum yum” like a little pureed avocado...if Caleb had teeth, I'd offer him a corn chip (guacamole joke...yes, no?).
