Homemade Baby Food

  When I had my first baby, I made most of his baby food homemade. As I have mentioned before, I had a lot of free time during his naps. When I was pregnant with my second child, I told myself I wasn't going to have time to make homemade baby food for this baby, so I didn't even bother trying when it came time to start feeding her solid foods. However, one day I was feeding her Gerber apples. She didn't really seem to like them. I smelt them and I was disgusted! You would think that applesauce would be one of the yummiest baby foods out there! I tried a bite, and sure enough, it … [Read more...]

Sun-dried tomato, feta, and spinach stuffed chicken

    I am currently 38 weeks and 2 days pregnant (yes, I'm totally counting down.) I had been really worried because I hadn't started "nesting." I thought, "Am I going to be a bad mom because I haven't had a desire to decorate, clean, and do all of those other wonderful things that most moms get the urge to do before the baby comes?!" I was so worried! I blamed my lack of desire to nest on the fact that we are currently living in an apartment. We sold our house in November and started building a new home. Our new home will probably be completed sometime in May. So, I haven't … [Read more...]
