On the heels of that last post...

On the heels of that last post about our wonderful life, I have a few thoughts.

  1. No matter who you are, 9 poopy diapers in one day is a LOT.
  2. The day isn't over yet.
  3. Making your own baby food is super easy and nutritious. I don't know why more people don't do it. So far I've made: bananas, avocados, sweet potatoes and apples. We haven't tried the apples yet. The sweet potatoes made Amelia throw up. A lot. The bananas are a HUGE hit and I can sneak the avocados into the bananas and the girls are still happy.
  4. It blows my mind how much "make your own baby food" paraphernalia is available on the internet. All you need is a blender or food processor, ice cube trays and ziploc bags. Actually I don't even use the food processor. I just mash.
  5. It blows my mind that I spelled "paraphernalia" right on the first try. Maybe I am finally getting over what my doctor called "placenta brain."
  6. I'll admit it, I have parked my kids in front of Baby Mozart and surfed the internet for the last 30 minutes. There is only so much sweet-potato-induced vomiting, pooping and crying that a mommy can take.
  7. Tonight we are going to try baths in the big tub. The girls are rapidly outgrowing their whale tub.


  1. I'm amazed at how easy and cheap it is to make your own baby food. I made my own baby food for all three of my kids and it was super easy. I just used a blender, fork, and ice cube trays, no need to buy anything else. Even with my twins I never bought a single jar of baby food.

  2. Love number 6! All I can say is Amen to that! Cute blog! Glad I found it - Hopped on over from Twingle Mommy's blog. I am now following and I hope you'll check out my little blog sometime too. :)
