Saturday night Matt let me catch up on sleep and did most of the nighttime shifts of diapers, soothing, rocking and listening for cries. I think I got 8.5 total hours of sleep! Glorious.
We are 3 for 3 on brunch! Karen declared that while the weather is great, Mazen is young and going out to dinner is on hold we need to carpe diem and go out to brunch every Sunday.
I woke up hungry though, so I couldn’t resist a breakfast a few hours before out brunch date.
Yogurt + banana + chia + honey drizzle
And half of an Apple Bar!
Totally addicted to decaf
We headed downtown and ate at Cville’s most popular breakfast spot: The Nook
Per usual, Maze needed to eat as soon as we sat down.
Is this a laugh or a cry!?
But after eating, he usually snoozes while the grownups enjoy the meal
I had a havarti dill and tomato omelet
And a side salad
Matt’s entrée won though – crab cake, eggs, toast, homefries
After lunch, we were blessed with a sleeping baby, so we went for a long Sunday stroll
Welcome to fall! It was great to get in a long walk. I’m really tempted to try running, but I just don’t think I am organized enough yet (and go to the doctor in 1.5 weeks for a check-up/clearance, although I think things feel pretty normal..)
One problem with blogging with a little delay is I don’t remember what we did all afternoon! I know we had lots of nursing – I watched Glee (LOVED Sarah Jessica Parker!) and more Downton Abbey (almost done with Season 2 – sniff). We also changed all the bedding in the house – clean sheets and fall comforters.
Tonight’s dinner was a Matt creation! He was craving a crockpot bean soup and created this recipe using a ham steak from Babes in the Wood and a pound of great northern beans.
Recipe here –> Pork + Bean Stew
Served with rosemary, sour cream, lots of black pepper and a side of Cville Crunch toast
Our little foodie always wants to play during dinner. He can’t wait to taste real food!
