Hungry Eyes

Hey guys! Thanks for the well wishes for Jack- he’s doing great. Really it was just the one episode of throwing up and then he was fine for the rest of the day. Weird.

So guess what? I actually got up and RAN this morning. And it was fabulous. I mean, not fabulous in that I am slow as Christmas and have zero stamina (there was a lot of walking involved), but just the fact that I got some exercise, could listen to the music I wanted to, and just had half an hour of alone time. THAT was fabulous. The other great thing was that I was able to get home, shower, read some blogs, drink coffee and eat breakfast in peace before Jack woke up. It made for a much more calm & productive morning. Now let’s just see if I can keep this up… my quads are already starting to feel a little sore. So out of shape.

(Also awesome? ISLA. She’s doing amazingly well in her crib. We’ve been putting her down around 10:30 and she sleeps until around 4:30. I feed her and set her back in the crib- usually awake- and she goes back to sleep until 7:30 or so.)

Today I took Jack to Jump Street, this indoor trampoline place that just opened near us. They have a special little area for kids 7 and under with 3 trampolines and a bounce house. He loved it (that’s him in the green):

Isla and I just chilled while he bounced. Not a bad way to spend a hot afternoon.

Tonight I made Mama Pea’s Thai Veggie Burgers from Peas & Thank You for dinner. I love these and they’re super healthy- ground oats, chickpeas, broccoli slaw, PB, soy sauce, garlic and spices.

I drizzle the patties with teriyaki sauce and serve them on bagel thins with mayo, baby spinach and pineapple. Alongside we had Alexia sweet potato fries (topped with smoked salt- my fave) and broccoli.

Aaaaaand for dessert:

Alright, I’ve got to go feed this little munchkin. Look at those hungry eyes.

    Jumpstreet has good groupons. We’re off from school all next week so we’re going to the one at 75 and Royal some morning.
    :) Come join if you want!

    First off, I’m glad to see you are doing better since your surgery! Must be nice to get back to normal life with your kiddos. =)

    Secondly, when you initially put Isla down in her crib, is she awake? Does she cry very much before falling asleep? I need some tips! I can’t get my 2-month old to sleep anywhere other than my arms.

      We usually change her diaper, swaddle her and then I’ll nurse her- so she’s either asleep or REALLY close to being asleep when we put her down. Sometimes Brian will walk around with her a while to settle her down before putting her in the crib. No crying- the first couple of nights she fussed a little so we had to go back in there and rock her/nurse a few times, but since then she’s gone right down. And usually she’s awake after the 4:30am feed but will put herself back to sleep when I set her in the crib. Oh- and I put blackout shades on the windows and turn the sound machine ALL the way up on the waterfall setting, which really helps.

    Congrats on running, a great way to start the day. Glad you are feeling better and able to exercise. I absolutely love Mama Pea’s Thai veggie burgers! You made it look better than the cookbook! I think I need to make those again soon! Be well.
