What we've been up to recently:
- Experimenting with ways to get Eliza to A) nap and B) nap not in my arms after nursing. For about 10 days she loved napping in her swing in the bathroom while I showered. Then she would cry while I was in the shower, but fall asleep as soon as I got out. Now she will do neither. Sigh.
- Right now she is sleeping in her swing with the vacuum running next to her. At least my living room got vacuumed. For the first time I find myself wishing our house was carpeted instead of mostly wood floors on the main level. It doesn't take long enough to vacuum my 6'x4' rug.
- Bonus, vacuuming also drives Scooter nuts! It's kind of fun to watch him "attack" the vacuum.
- Thank goodness for white noise apps. I was just able to stop the real vacuum and turn on the vacuum sound on my iphone. I hope this lasts, mama needs a bit of a break!
- Lots of baking has happened around here. I tried some awesome browned butter cookies I found on Pinterest. I had wonderful plans to post about them, but that didn't happen. The browned butter icing was the best part. Seriously so good.
- We also made Cinnamon Rolls for General Conference Sunday. Yum! And I used it as an excuse to make browned butter icing again. Even better the second time.
- I baked Smitten Kitchen's Peach Pie with Creme Fraiche again this year.
- We grew Kale in our yard, so we tried Kale chips and some Kale soup. Neither was wonderful, so we'll be looking for new recipes.
- We went to the Home Show because we got free tickets and I was DESPERATE to get out of the house. And then decided we're not Home Show people. But it was nice to get dressed up (meaning makeup and earrings and an extra check of the clothes to make sure they didn't have spittup on them) and hold my husband's hand while walking around the Expo Center.
And for making it all the way through the post, here's a picture of the cutest member of our family.
