when i started blogging, i was a little nervous about using the boys' real names with all of the blogosphere. it's probably not a big deal but i'm a little paranoid like that. so we used the boys' nicknames instead, which just happened to be foodie names. burrito's name came about because it rhymes with another nickname we have for him. noodle's nickname was coined after the way his body was always so limp when wrestling with john as a toddler.
so naturally when we found out we were having another baby and that this baby was a boy, we almost immediately started brainstorming a blog name for him. it was fun to announce his real name here on the blog when we finally decided on one (it's tough when you already have 2 boys with great names!) but from here on out, my paranoid self would prefer an inconspicuous nickname.
well, here's the story of his new foodie name:
we were sitting at the table one night eating a meal that someone so graciously brought to us (this is a HUGE blessing after having a baby!) and it was of the mexican food variety, our favorite! noodle was reading the bag of tortilla chips and accidentally read "silas" when the actual word was "salsa." i immediately yelled, "that's it!" it really is perfect...it is spelled almost the same way and this baby has most definitely added some spice to our life (and continues to do so!).
so silas' new foodie name is now salsa!
