Just wanted to post a few of the yummies I’ve been eating the past few days. I’ll start with the best just because it’s the first chronologically. We went out to eat with my parents on Saturday at Swagger, a little dive in our town renown for it’s burgers and sandwiches. Even Guy Fieri stopped by on Diner’s Drive Ins and Dives. Shane’s been a few times but this was my first visit and I was quite impressed.
I had an Ahi Ahi tuna sandwich and it was HUGE.
Mom was taking a picture at the same time and mine captured the second her little red light for focus flashed Avery’s face. haha. They also gave me a lovely bouquet! It made my dining ‘room’ so bright and cheerful.
I whipped up a black bean salsa later in the weekend with black beans, corn, cilantro, diced tomatoes, onions, peppers and tons of spices.
This morning I made some biscuits because all I wanted was something dripping with honey.
I’m re-training Avery not to eat during the night so I am about to CRASH. It’s ain’t easy folks, kids like their comfort food! The first night wasn’t too bad, around 10:30pm he woke up wanting to eat and I respectfully declined and he cried and cried off and on until after midnight. It wasn’t the nice kind of cry but the angry, spoiled kind and so it wasn’t too hard to be strong. Then he slept the rest of the night. Last night though, he woke up at 11:30pm and cried for about forty minutes, then was up again at 2:15 and cried for twenty minutes and then again at 4…….finally he got up for good at 6am. Basically that means I barely barely slept.
So I’m going to eat a biscuit and rest…also some tea. I need tea majorly right now.
Question: Mama’s, did you have to wean your baby from night feedings? Avery is nine months old and wanting to feed once or twice a night but really only latches on for a little until he drifts off to sleep so I know it’s not a hunger thing, but a comfort thing.
