We had our (big tear) very last midwife visit on Monday. Miss Paisley is 10lbs 8oz at seven weeks old and is 22 1/4 inches long. She is 2oz heavier than Denay and 3/4 of an inch longer 10 days earlier. She goes in for her first round of shots at exactly two months on Wednesday and I'm so interested to see the comparison between the two.

:: We were all set to leave on Friday and she decided she didn't want to so I ran home and grabbed the bedtime essentials and came back the next morning with Paisley and armed with all the playtime-in-the-snow essentials out we went!
She mostly just wanted to walk around and grab the snow with her mitten and after a half hour just wanted to come inside.

I've been working on this for a while....I would love to hear some of your "momisms".....
- if your daily "uniform" consists primarily of sweats and slippers
- if you consider a good day one where you don't wind up with some sort of bodily fluid on you
if you've ever had a shower and dried off, only to find the tops of your feet still wet.....and then realize you're leaking
if you can find goldfish crackers in pretty much any room in your house
if you can do virtually everything one-handed
if you've ever gotten the reminder call about your dentist appointment and gotten excited about having an hour to sit quietly
if you have ever scooped poop out of the bathtub
if you have ever given yourself a high-five and a pat on the back.....just for getting out of the house
if you have a froggie, ducky, bunny, doggie or kitty (or any other animal) hooded towel in your house
if you consider a trip to the grocery store a good time and use it as a way to get some adult interaction and exercise
if you spend two hours getting ready for a 30 minute outing
if you have ever fought to get the plastic plug out of an electrical socket
if you have ever gotten a hickey on your bicep because baby was that hungry
if your laundry basket has ever gone from empty to full....in six hours
if you've every caught yourself sucking on a soother
you know what let-down is and wince just hearing the word
- if you've ever had to ditch an full grocery cart in the middle of the store to deal with some sort of a breakdown
Hats off to all you moms out there!

We were mainly there to celebrate my sister-in-law's big 30th birthday but all wrapped in there were my nephew's 3rd and my brother-in-law's 30-somthing and mine (early) as well.
This was an extra special visit as well because it was Paisley's first time meeting her Uncle's Paul and Jordie and her Auntie Lindsey.
We had a lovely brunch, complete with ice cream pie for a mid-afternoon snack.....I spent a whole day shopping (baby-free) with my MIL......and was even able to go to a mother & daughter night and mingle with some lovely ladies!

Take your sort-of-cool boiled zucchini and....... ......cut lengthwise down the center. Then scoop out the guts, leaving about a 1/4 of an inch of thickness. Scoop chicken mixture into the hollows...... .....sprinkle with Parmesan cheese...... .....and bake at 400 degrees for about 10-15 minutes, until cheese is melted. EAT!

My good friend lent us a cute bunny snuggly that we put Paisley in.....she slept the whole time.
We are allowing Denay to have one piece of candy a day and mom and dad are making sure to help her out too!

Yesterday, before we got changed out of our pretty Sunday dresses, mommy squashed us on the couch together and took some pictures. Paisley mostly cried but mommy got a couple good shots.
We can't wait to see you soon.
How many of you always need bananas in the house?
1 c. sugar
1 beaten egg
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 3/4 c. rolled oats
1 c. mashed banana (the riper the better)
1 pkg. chocolate chips (I just threw in a few handfuls)
1/2 c. shredded coconut (optional)
Cream together shortening and sugar. Add egg and beat until smooth. Mix together flour, baking soda, salt, spices. Add to moist mixture. Mix well. Add remaining ingredients one at a time, mixing thoroughly.
Drop rounded teaspoonfuls of dough 1 1/2 inches apart on foil covered cookie sheets. Bake at 400 degrees 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. Store in tightly covered container. Makes around 4 dozen cookies.
I thought I had totally overcooked one full sheet but the bananas keep the cookie moist and even though they are really brown, they are still soft and taste great!
Coming Soon: my adventures in cheesecake!
