^^ The latest in baby clothes and my current favorite outfit from Old Navy! It’s soooo soft, and da hood is super convenient for unexpected winter days in the middle of fall.
We had a great night’s sleep last night (out of the last 7, 6 of them have been great!) and Maze played in his bouncer seat while I made oatmeal.
Pumpkin whipped banana oatmeal with Barney Butter + Autumn Spice Granola. And sprinkles because I only get to use my Halloween sprinkles one week a year and I’m sure it will take me 26 years to go through the container!
We had lots of fun just playing today hanging out in our basement bunker from the dreary weather. It’s supposed to get worse here, but not nearly as terrible as it is on the coast. I’ve been watching the Weather Channel, and it’s so scary.
I call this move “grabby baby hands.” You know when they just reach out and grab something on your face? Or punch you in the nose. I forgive him.
How many baby photos does it take to get a good shot? About 3x this many! Call me
maybe crazy, but I feel like I haven’t taken enough photos of Maze. He is growing up SO fast!! These went on the external hard drive to remember 7 weeks.
One more!! Practicing sitting up!
Ah food. Where were we…lunch! I had to eat this lunch with my non-dominant hand (right) on the couch when Maze was going through a fussy hour. It still tasted good!
Green salad with peppers and carrots, almonds, a drizzle of honey and a can of Trader Joe’s smoked trout. (Our brand new Trader Joe’s opens in a matter of WEEKS!!) I love this smoked trout more than salmon, tuna and sardines combined!
A slice of Great Harvest Tuscan Herb with butter and a few crackers on the side.
A piece of this dark chocolate my mom brought home from Paris on the side. The French (and pretty much all of Europe) sure know chocolate.
After fussy hour, we had a happy play hour. I caught this miracle of a shot of him smiling at his birdie friends!
He loves his Octo Pirate too.
Afternoon snack was a bowl of chopped pear with yogurt and some granola crumbs
Do you guys know Jasmine?
She has an Etsy store called Bama + Ry where she makes beautiful custom jewelry. I first heard about her necklaces on Meals + Miles and immediately bought one for me with Mazen’s name and a few more as Christmas gifts. It’s obviously my favorite piece of jewelry now!
Upon my order, Jasmine offered to give a discount to KERF readers – you all can receive 20% off any order with the code katheats at checkout.
In other gifting news, look what smell Seamane got me for my birthday! Rose 31!!! I’ve been heavenly scented all day.
For cocktail hour, I opened the growler of Nugget’s Kombucha I bought at the city market. The Citra-Hop flavor is SOO good! The best ‘bucha I’ve ever had.
Matt came home this afternoon for some tummy time, but he had to go back at 6:30 for a meeting, so that’s why we made tonight’s dinner last night.
Our Baked Potato Soup!
Matt made it a bit richer with all milk instead of half broth and a cup of half and half. It was so thick it was like mashed potatoes!
The green layer is some sautéed cabbage on top (for some green!) plus cheese + bacon crumbles.
Such a perfect soup for a chilly night.
Back to the Weather Channel…
