DSCN6173done

Hearty Homemade Yogurt Parfait for Baby Using Gerber Lil' Bits! My daughter is finally eating solid foods and enjoying them! I love watching her face every time she eats a new food. It is wonderful to see her eyes light up when she comes across tastes and textures that she likes and are new to her. Something else that is fun is seeing her want to enjoy the same foods that she see's me eating. I know that she is watching me and she is learning from me so I want to make sure I always show her and give her the best. One of my favorite meals to eat is Breakfast. Each morning my oldest daughter and I enjoy overnight oats with yogurt and fruit. I love how hearty it is as well as tasty. For a few weeks now my youngest has watched intently as my oldest and I enjoy our oats. She is constantly crying and reaching for our food. This got me to thinking....can I make her some of the same thing? I know that she can not chew steal cut oats yet but she can most defiantly have her baby approved … [Read more...]

I awoke one morning with a rash down my arms and the most severe pain I had ever had in my life. The pain was so bad I could not walk or bend. It honestly felt like my spine was crushing my insides. Knowing that I did not have any extra money in my account and knowing that we had horrible insurance I decided to put off going to the doctor. What a mistake. A week later I was in even more pain. I could not sleep at night, could not walk, could not breath. I went ahead and went to the doctor who ran a bunch of blood tests. It was awful. On my way home from the doctors office I my daughter who was in the back seat said "Mom what is this rash that I have on my arms?" Knowing that my daughter now had the rash made me freak out. I could not imagine her going through … [Read more...]

This article is sponsored by Daisy Brand Healthy Salad Dressing Replacement + Recipe with Daisy Brand Cottage Cheese! I purchase Cottage Cheese every time I go to the grocery store. Because of it's versatility Daisy Brand Cottage Cheese has become a staple in my home. My husband loves to put it in his lasagna, my daughter eats it plain or with fruit and I love it as a salad dressing replacement. I must admit that growing up I had never thought to put Cottage Cheese on my salads. But when I was attending my local Colorado high school we had an awesome salad bar in the lunch room. Every day my friend Kayla would put Cottage Cheese on her salad. I found this intriguing and one day she convinced me to give it a try. From that moment I was hooked! Instead of topping my daily salads with high calorie salad dressing I started using cottage cheese with a little salt and pepper! It was a quick and easy swap that allowed me to get more of the healthy protein that I needed! Now … [Read more...]

We have been through so much these past 30 years. As a Mom and daughter we have been through thick and thin together. There were times that I did not want to be around her and times that I just wanted my Mommy...but no matter what situation we were going through I always knew that she loved me...and she loves me still! Now that I am older and have a daughter of my own I realize just how much my Mom sacrificed for all of her kids. She never missed a single soccer game, wrestling match, choir concert or ballet recital. She was there for everything! She was the one who made our "boo boo's" better and cooked us kids Chicken Noodle Soup (from scratch) every time we were sick. All of those wonderful things my Mom did as I was growing up laid the … [Read more...]
