The Last Four

In attempt to find something blog-worthy to write about, but still utterly failing, I present to you, the last four pictures I took on my phone. Grasping at straws people.

Oh hello big boy in the shopping cart. PS the cart cover isn’t for germs. I just think it’s more comfortable for him. He seems to like grocery shopping for about 15 minutes. Then it’s all downhill. The only thing that makes him happy is trying to eat my grocery list.

I wish this was guacamole, but alas, it’s sweet potato, spinach and peas for le bebe. Though maybe he’d like guac? I do a mixture of homemade food and organic jarred food or pouches. Much to my chagrin, but maybe a given considering my cooking, he likes the pre-made food better. He actually liked this fake-me-out guac though.

It gotten cooler and immediately I wanted soup. So cliche, right? At least it wasn’t a pumpkin spiced latte. Oh, wait, I’ve gotten those too. Well, sort of. I actually get a soy misto with one pumpkin of pumpkin because I think I’m being healthier. Anyway, this soup was good.

Remember that homemade baby food? This is where it went.

What’s the last picture on your phone?


In the past, I’ve always either gone out to a fancy meal for my birthday or gone to a bar with a group of friends.  Life with a three-month old doesn’t really allow for either so this year, my birthday was much more low key.  Originally, we were going to go to Jason’s parents house for the weekend but then Jason realized he was on-call for work so we couldn’t go.

Since we were in town, I cashed in a Groupon for a massage that Jason bought for me.

For dinner, we wanted to check out this new bar – The Imperial – in Decatur.  But when we got there, there was no place to park and it looked pretty crowded and not baby friendly.  (I realize that baby-friendly bar sort of sounds like an oxymoron, but the bars in Decatur generally are baby-friendly and all non-smoking.)  So instead, we went across the street to Thinking Man Tavern.

The sign on the door said kids were allowed until 9pm and there were some empty booths so we went inside.

We started out with some hummus.

And for my entree, I had the tofu torta with mashed sweet potatoes.  I kind of was thinking it was going to be a tostada (torta sounds like tostada, I guess) but it was a sandwich.

It was good but the sweet potatoes really stole the show.

Before we went out, I was all like, “It’s my birthday, you be the designated driver.” to Jason and then I ended up drinking a whopping one glass of wine.  Don’t know if that has to do with being old or parenthood.  Maybe both.

My actual birthday was Monday and honestly, it sort of sucked.  It was a Monday, for one, but also I came down with a cold.  I did, however, enjoy a huge bowl of kale for my birthday dinner.  Exciting, no?  Happy Birthday to me?


I’m trying to be funny but I actually really do like kale.  So trendy, I know.  This was this recipe, by the way.  I spent the rest of my birthday trying not to breathe on my son, though I think he’s the one that gave me the cold.  And he spent the day trying to prevent me from getting a good picture of him.




The Weekend in Photos

Also known as  “I haven’t updated the blog in a while but typing with one hand is hard.”

I found him!  Where’s my prize?

Grandma came to visit.

Smiley baby!  He started smiling like a week ago. And this is my mother’s phone with 159 pictures.  My phone has like 2500 photos on it.  2499 of which are Alexander.  I’m only slightly exaggerating.

Someone has his eyes on my food.  Someone would be disappointed if he ate solid food because it was bland.

California roll with a side of baby.

And now it’s almost Monday and it’s my last week before I go back to work.  Gulp.
