And Just Like That, Baby M. Grew Up…

Ok, not really. I mean, she’s growing up… but she’s not there yet. But some days, it sure seems like she is less my baby and more her own little person.

All of a sudden, she has become an eating machine. She eats three squares a day, and lots of snacks in between. She’s still nursing a couple times a night, but I think it’s more for comfort than anything else.

Kind of crazy. There was definitely a time when I felt like I would never stop being a milk machine. Amazing how quickly things change… Need to remember that the next time I’m in the depths of self-pity.

Now, my biggest problem is getting a square meal! I usually end up eating whatever’s left on her tray and whatever else I can stuff in my mouth in between cutting, cooking, chopping, and coercing food into baby M.’s mouth.

I made this today (took about 7 minutes to prep… super easy and really amazingly tasty):

1 large sweet potato

1 yellow squash

2 carrots

3 cloves of garlic, crushed

Olive oil


Slice the veggies into French fry-style strips. Toss with veggies with crushed garlic and olive oil. Bake at 400 degrees F for 25-30 minutes. Sprinkle with salt to taste.
