What a week

We have had my mom and youngest brother (Sean) here all week as Sean has had some MD appointments here in town. This weekend, Collin should be making a pass through as well. The babies are doing well with the visitors as we make sure to keep their schedule constant regardless of what we have going on otherwise. They are getting a bit more mobile each day - working on rolling, and the newest crawls which Mary Louise is working very hard to do. They seem to have figured out that if they want "that toy", all they need to do is find a way to move their little bodies over to get it!

They are also getting more and more interested with what we have on our plates, in our hands, etc. Starting solids is not that far off I'd say...Brent and I have long discussed getting back to our almost vegetarian, low sodium diets we maintained prior to THE pregnancy. Looks like our day of reckoning is coming sooner rather than later. It's very important to us to set a good example for our little ones. We aren't far off now - but definitely need to "trim the fat" so to speak in a few more areas.

So we've been quite busy here and it doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. I often feel that there simply aren't enough hours in the day to get things done. I must stop in the moments that I'm overwhelmed, take a deep breath, re-focus and see the smiles on the little ones' faces - the laundry can wait - there's tummy time to be had.

  1. Hi Heather! I see you are a follower on my personal blog - I try to post a recipe every Monday. I am a vegetarian - eat some fish and everything is low sodium because I just don't like salt that much! My 5 yr old is a total carnivore which I've just had to learn to accept but he's starting to eat what I cook. My 11 month old is still happy to eat anything and honestly eats anything I cook for us for dinner...just a little mashed up! Anyway I love talking food/cooking so email me if you want any support in your vegetarian venture!
