I’ve been having some trouble finding the time to blog lately mostly because baby girl has been napping very poorly during the day.
This is why I’ve decided that it was finally the time to break out the EASY routine and work on teaching independent sleep.
Of course, we’ve got the eat (E) and activity (A) parts down pat Now, I just have to work on the sleep (S).
After a few days of frustratingly little day sleep, my daughter is finally taking a nap in her room (she’s been sleeping for 90 minutes – woot!).
We’ve got a busy week. Besides it being Halloween on Friday (can’t wait to share a photo of the kiddos in their costumes!), Amélie has her two month shots tomorrow, on Thursday I’m starting band again (haven’t touched my flute in almost 2 years!) and on Friday, baby girl is going for her 2 month well check up).
After my postpartum appointment with my obgyn, I have decided to explore the world of smoothies. She kindly scolded me when I admitted to not taking any postpartum vitamins, but I can’t stomach the things (good thing she didn’t know I wasn’t taking any when I was pregnant). I figure that I can get all of the vitamins I need out of real food.
Right now, I’m working on figuring out which vitamins I should focus on given that I’m breastfeeding and finding which foods pack the vitamins I need (also experimenting with flavour combinations 😉 ).
The one thing that’s annoying me is that I’m using a food processor to make them. Besides the fact that I have to remove the blade before removing the container and that the opening to the container has such a large diameter (and no spout) that it’s nearly impossible to pour the smoothie in my glass without losing half of it on the counter, it’s also a pain to clean all the parts and it doesn’t take care of ice and frozen fruits as well as I would like. I’m thinking of investing in a good ol’ blender. Any suggestions?
Now that the content of Netflix Canada is better, we’ve decided to go ahead and subscribe to it. I have been having a lot of fun going through the Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes. So many memories for the geek in me!
I can’t believe how quickly time flies. My little sister turned 23 last week, my daughter is going to be 2 months tomorrow, my son 2 years old next month, I’m going on 30 and baby brother is going on 20! What, seriously? I remember holding him in my arms when he was fresh out of the oven!
