Slowly but surely, life is starting to settle around here as we move out of the "surviving newborn baby" mode. I'm starting to find time again for some of my activities (not much scrapbooking though but I chalk that up to be out of printer ink).
Here's what I've been up to:
Cutting up pumpkins leftover from Halloween and smashing them!
I’ve made my first batch of baby food (I only made it because I had so much pumpkin leftover), pumpkin ginger scones and frozen more batches for later. It’s been all about pumpkin around here!
I also tried my hand at homemade granola bars. They were really easy and quick to make. I’m sensing a new trend. I really like the idea of moving away from so many processed, store bought foods. If I can, I’d like to eat more real food.
I made them with chocolate chips (cause that’s what Paul seems to like the best) but snuck in some currents to make them a bit healthier. The currents are small so you really don’t notice them at all. I’m sensing some devious mama tactics in the future…
And Paul and I took Liam to a restaurant for the very first time. Not subway or a food court. But a real restaurant. It went ok. Thankfully the restaurant in question was empty at the time. Paul of course couldn’t waste the photo opportunity to lick his son:
Aside from that…
I joined an English Speaking Moms of Laval group in September and have been slowly getting out more with the ladies. Honestly, it’s doing me a lot of good to get out more often. While I’m a homebody, there’s something very different about being in the house all the time with a little one. I was starting to feel a little like a character from The Yellow Wallpaper. So time away from home is good. It keeps the crazy at bay which is always a good thing!
