Guys, The Lego Movie is pretty awesome. Great message and a great way to show Lego's evolution!

It's weird having nothing to do while on maternity leave. Nurse, change diaper, nap, repeat. Need some hobbies. (Really, need to start writing end of year reports.)

Oh, and whoever said to never wake a sleeping baby hasn't met Mara's pediatrician. I have to wake our baby every two hours to feed her - it's a chore. So I guess I don't have nothing to do while on maternity leave.

Looking so forward to my parents flying here in June to meet our little bundle of amazing!

Cranberry Almond Granola Bites should be in my life. It worries me that I'd probably eat the whole batch in a day, though. It's how licorice goes down in this house.

Here's something I've been enjoying on toast for breakfasts lately. If you're a fan of tahini and honey (and cinnamon like me), it's pretty great. I cheat and add a little more honey than called for.

I recently emailed this photo to my husband at work:
To which he replied, "F***ing beautiful" but without so many asterisks. Our child is at major risk of developing potty mouth. I could only respond with "It's insane." Because it's truly insane just how beautiful this little girl is to us.

Many things baby today! (Forever now on?)


  1. You are a very normal and loving parent. I remember sitting and just staring at my babies. I felt so in love and thought no other baby could possibly be as cute! Don't you agree? Now I'm waiting the birth of my 2nd grandchild, this one from my daughter. My son has an almost 2 year old and another on the way in 2 months. It's just as wonderful to fall in love with a grandchild and even better to watch your kids become parents! Enjoy Mara! They do grow up pretty fast!

    1. Congratulations on your second grandchild, Patty! Followed so closely by a third - exact same situation in my family at the moment pretty much.
