I have been waiting impatiently for my daughter to start holding conversations. I envisioned long serious conversations like what hairstyle should she give the cat, or what goes better in pancakes, chocolate or blueberries. The days are finally getting here but still coming very slowly. So when little Miss Mia was battling a nasty virus/ear infection this past week and had not said a single word to me in days, it didn’t phase me. What did cause me to take a long bath with a martini was what happened when The Husband walked in the door from work. words of

If I wouldn’t have known her as the sweet loving angel that she is, I would think my daughter is an evil genius. She is only 19 months old and when you take her prematurity into account she is more like a 15 month old in development (quickly catching up mind you). But there are times that I think she has tricks up her sleeve. I’m convinced she pulls out The Art of War from underneath her teddy bear at night and studies strategy while we are all sleeping. Case in point, the other day right before bath time she was

It’s oatmeal time again. We were out for a while. It was tough, real tough but I got a chance to make a couple weeks worth and now we have a happy baby. Here’s an updated take on the first stage 1 oatmeal recipe post: oatmeal is everywhere. This recipe makes 2 large adult servings or 1 ice-cube tray (for storing) and a little left over for baby. We’re making it this morning to get Tim fueled up for his upcoming race this weekend in Ft.Woth. Note: pears, apples, cherries, and raisins are all on the “dirty dozen” list of

As the name suggests, this is a quick and healthy breakfast for baby. Mia of course loves it and devours it every time. Why else would I make it so much? This recipe is one for the older baby who is ready for more texture and finger food. For a smoother veggie and egg breakfast for the younger baby check out “Butternut Squash and Egg Breakfast.” Hopefully, you can use this as a starting point for your own egg recipes. Add different veggies, cheeses and whatever you can come up with that your baby can handle! Enjoy! Eggs are an

Tofu? For babies? That’s right. It’s a perfect way to introduce protein in your baby’s diet. When Mia started to turn her nose up at meat recently, and I was tired of feeding her copious amounts of yogurt I came across an article on tofu. I am not a tofu lover. Sorry, but it’s gooey texture is not much to be desired in my opinion. On the other hand my husband and now my baby love it!!! I was a little worried when I first offered a bowl of tofu to Mia. I was for certain that she would turn

another rainy day…really?

What happened? Yesterday was such a good one. Sun was shining, weather was hitching on warm, Lyle Lovett was in my kitchen (see limoncino cookies), we played outside, visited with the in-laws and Mia learned her first sign language. It was great and looked something like this. Did the world flip over in one night ? Because when I woke up this morning I landed in the third circle of mom hell. It’s not good and looks something like this: To start, it’s raining and cold. Not the kind of weather to take a baby with a delicate immune system

Before I say anything further let me say that I love what I’m doing now. It’s completely different from working a normal job (you get days off) but I love it and wouldn’t trade it for the world! Having that said, day by day I am becoming a SAHM. Wait what? There’s a label for this? As so many of you have taught me recently, yes, I am a SHAM. A bran stinkin’ new stay at home mom. Even though my baby is 15 months old she didn’t come home from the hospital until she was 6 months old and
