Mr.Pants (his dad keeps trying to reassure him that his last name is actually PRANGER, but I tell him not to listen to his daddy, he’s crazy) turned 4 months old on 12/22! I won’t know his weight or height until his appointment on the 29th (when he’ll also get his next round of vaccinations, alas!) but he is getting long! His 3 month onesies still fit through the torso, but his arms are getting a bit too long for them. Continue reading
Our next book club won’t get underway until January, so this gives you a chance to get a head start on obtaining the book and reading! Fortunately this one should be a bit easier to come across than The Goldfinch, and it’s a much quicker read, too. The book is The Magician’s Assistant by Ann Patchett. Continue reading
I pray for my son every night as I rock him to sleep. Usually I pray for peace, for health, for good sleep and that he would wake up healthy and happy. If I have recently read a story about SIDS or any of the other myriad terrible things that can befall a little one in the night, then I sometimes simply pray that he will wake up. I pray that God would cover him with His feathers (Psalm 91:4) and that my baby would love the Lord all the days of his life. Continue reading
I know everyone else already finished it and I’m totally the loser here, but I finally finished The Goldfinch and am ready to talk about it! Thanks everyone for waiting for Lady Slowpoke over here. Next month the holidays will be over so I will have my act together.
First of all, this post/discussion obviously has SPOILERS so if you haven’t read The Goldfinch but you want to, go away now! I mean that in the kindest way! Continue reading
Well, I feel a little foolish. This check in should have been posted TWO WEEKS AGO. My excuses are as follows: I got sick, then my baby got sick, then we were hosting Thanksgiving, then both of our cars broke down on the same day, then my in-laws visited. I’ve been running on fumes and three cups of coffee a day, and have barely had a chance to pick up the book or sit down at my laptop for an extended length of time. Continue reading
Charlie (AKA Mr.TeenyPants) turned 3 months old on 11/22! I’m not sure of his length since he didn’t have an official checkup this month, but we did visit the doctor twice for what thankfully turned out to be nothing (both times), so I know that his weight is currently 14 pounds, 11 ounces. My chunky boy! Continue reading
My new life with a baby has been a beautiful, wonderful rollercoaster ride so far. If rollercoaster rides include 4 am feedings and diaper rashes and extremely chubby cheeks. Continue reading
Aw yiss, it’s been months and months since I posted a recipe! I had a hankering for jambalaya tonight, which I don’t eat nearly enough of and have never tried making at home before. My only problem: I didn’t have several crucial ingredients, namely andouille sausage and shrimp. BUT I did have salami (salami isn’t typically accepted as a paleo food due to being processed, but it IS delicious and I happened to have some on hand) and tilapia, and I did NOT want to go to the store! So I made a few substitutions.
The results? Delicious. Continue reading
