This won’t be long, as the baby is about to wake up from a nap (in which case she’ll be hungry – she’s always hungry!).
On March 14, 2013 (I have a Pi Baby!!!), Fern Alexandra joined our family and changed our lives. The last month has been amazing, exhausting and the best time of my life. As my life at home changes, so will change my business and blog. Stay tuned for more information – and more recipes, I’m going to start cooking again!
Here’s the little lady:
I know, somewhere along the line this blog got hijacked by my as-of-yet-unborn baby. Food is just nowhere near as interesting as it was before. I’m still careful to get lots of fresh, whole foods into my body to nourish this (ever-increasing-in-size) baby. And I still have to eat foods that I enjoy, but getting pregnant makes you think about your priorities!
So, I wanted to let you know what to expect in the near future:
- A really cool, totally unique baby will born soon! And of course I’ll post some pictures and a quick update.
- I will continue to post new recipes and food insights as I come across them.
- For a while, we’re going to switch over to a “favorite links” format for most of the posts – recipes, food help and more.
I appreciate the support from all of you! Thank you in advance for sticking around during this most wonderful time of transition with me.
I’ll keep this short and to the point. I love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. And I HATE their ingredients (have you read that list?!).
Then one day, I stumbled upon THIS RECIPE. I’m a lazy chef and I love peanut butter. The recipe hung out in my browser for at least a month before I finally stepped up and made some magic.
It’s time for another baby post! This one is a month overdue (which the baby will NOT be!) but better late than never.
If you haven’t already read about how totally awesome my baby is, start here. When it comes to things out of our control, the kind of baby you have DEFINITELY is out of that realm (I never thought, “Whatif my baby doesn’t have two hands?”). I don’t care how many blogs you read about when to have sex to have a boy or girl, most of this baby-making stuff really is up to a higher power (if you believe in such) and/or an incredibly complex and variable system of genetic roulette. We had no control over the genetic roulette, but we do have control over how we raise our child and what we teach little Banana.
The impending ultimate life change of having a child definitely makes you think. And if you’re someone who gets anxious over lack of control (HELLO!), this is definitely an interesting time. As I write this, I’m 33 weeks pregnant, which makes that impending life change pretty darn close.
Pregnancy (and from what I’m told, parenting) really take the control away. My body has not been my own for 8 months now. I couldn’t eat cooked vegetables for a while. Deep breathing is awkward at best. Bladder control is slowly slipping away. And soon there will be a little person in my life that didn’t exist previously. So with all of this floating around in my head, I started thinking about my favorite poet Shel Silverstein and wanted to share this poem with you. Read More
