Thursday Baby Update: Snuggle time

Vegan Goodness:
Today we ate:

  • Breakfast: Blueberry smoothies and cereal for Dad and LP.  Mom munched on clementines while she worked.
  • We all had almonds for a mid-morning snack
  • Lunch: A special treat: burritos at Chipotle!
  • Dinner: Cholent (lentil, bean and seitan stew) with homemade rye bread.  Dad makes the best bread!
  • Mom and Dad had some mint chocolate cookies after the kiddos went down.

Money Matters:
Today we spent the following:

  • $22.42 at Chipotle – LP finally started requesting his own burrito – and he ate most of it!
  • $98.08 at Trader Joe’s.  This should be our last Trader Joe’s trip for the month.  We are trying to save more by minimizing our shopping trips.

Thursday Baby Update:

One of the things I’m enjoying the most about my second little one is that I get to enjoy my second little one.  When LP was a baby I enjoyed our time together, but I also worried about making sure he had enough tummy time, how he was verbalizing things, what I was going to do that day to get some kind of adult interaction, etc.  With IP things are different.  This is due, in large part, to the fact that the G-man is home too, and everything about the children and the household are not on my shoulders.  But with IP I just worry less.  I’m not obsessed with milestones.  I know she is gaining weight just fine.  Instead, we can just hang out.  This has resulted in LOTS of the following lately:

  • Playtime with both of us on the floor while I listen to NP
  • Morning naps in bed where she falls asleep nursing and I sleep beside her
  • Afternoon siestas where she sleeps on my lap and I read a book or watch The Daily Show
  • Walks all over the place where she faces front-ways in the Moby wrap.  She gets super annoyed if she is facing me all the time!

In addition to these fun and relaxing times IP and I love to have conversations!  I make up gobbledygook phrases and she laughs and laughs and laughs.  Then her big brother comes in the room and she forgets all about me!
