Matt was home this morning which meant 2x baby snuggling and a cup of coffee delivered to me in bed! Loving the programmable coffee maker again : ) I sipped on the coffee while I tidied up the nursery. I put away the rock n play and clean up anything I used the night before and threw aside. I felt like such a parent with a coffee cup…
…and wearing my “house coat” : ) Totally getting my money’s worth out of this robe!
I stashed a variety of bars in the nightstand because sometimes I’m pretty hungry in the middle of the night. I’ve been nibbling off of this one the past few nights and loved it!
After the nursery was tidy, Maze tried on one of the new outfits I bought for our farm wedding – TOO CUTE! Those pants might be designed to be shorts, but they still fit : )
While I got ready for the day, Matt made a killer breakfast!!
Still obsessed with French toast : )
Our method involves soaking for about 20 seconds per side (2 servings = 2 eggs) thick whole grain Great Harvest bread in an egg flavored with 1 tsp each of vanilla and cinnamon and then placed in a nonstick skillet for 3-5 minutes per side.
I then topped this with a thick slather of pumpkin butter. My friend Xiomara works at Parkesdale Farm Market in Florida and sent us this as a baby welcome gift. It’s naturally sweetened and delicious!
Also involved – pan-seared bananas, Chia Charger Buffalo Dirt and a sprinkle of coconut.
After breakfast we Google Chatted with mom + dad! I think they would like it if we had a live web cam going 24/7 so they could see Mazen at all times : )
Some of us took naps
Matt went off to work, and later I put together this lunch from leftovers in the fridge –
Baby spinach, sautéed tofu, roasted squash and apples, pecans, honey, olive oil, salt. My favorite kind of salad!
When the mail came, I jumped for joy over the Downton Abbey DVD and jars of Barney Butter I ordered!Although I go through stages of nut butters, they all hold a special place in my heart. I get a craving for BB about once a year and just have to have it.
A spoonful served with an apple
Dinner tonight was a special treat from my friend Alice! [Thank you Alice!]
She brought us fish tacos from the Whole Foods food truck. These were delicious! I loved that the fish was breaded – it had an extra layer of savory to enjoy. Stuffed with black beans, cheese, cabbage, lettuce, sour cream and a blueberry hot sauce (also from Parkesdale!)
“Side salad” with the leftovers
I got in bed at 9:30pm and Mazen slept for FOUR HOURS STRAIGHT!! I woke up at 1:45 worried because I haven’t slept that long in nearly 3 weeks! But, my gosh, I felt so refreshed when it was time to feed him at 2 and 4 and 6 ; )
