Altus: month 1

We are all settled in Altus. It's nice seeing the big planes fly over us all day. We were used to the usual trainers at Vance; our house was directly under the T-6 pattern. But these planes, the C-17 and the KC-135, just look massive when compared.  My husband will be flying the C-17 and my best friend's husband will be flying the KC-135. Every person who works on these planes has to come through Altus for training. Since a lot of our other friends are flying the same aircraft, we are running into a lot of familiar faces. Especially Academy faces, they seem to be everywhere.

My little boy had his first meal this week. Beech Nut Rice cereal. He loves eating from a spoon!

It was a lot of fun! We are entering into the world of baby food and I've decided to take my chance at making it myself. We are sticking with just rice cereal for now, practice food, the doctor calls it. But then we'll venture into the world of pureed green beans, sweet potatoes, apples, pears, carrots, and peas. 
Spicy Avocado Chicken Enchiladas
If you're on a health kick.

Spicy Thai Noodles
These have quite a kick. Be cautious!

Creamy Tomato Pasta
My personal favorite. I love using fresh tomatoes.
Good things.
