Topic-Changing Thursdays: The Chiplet is 4 Months Old!

I can’t believe I just typed that title! Someone asked me at the store how old he was, and I had to say it then, too. He is getting so big and so aware of everything. We finally can drive places (if it isn’t nap time) and not just have him fall asleep. That might sound crazy, but since he does a decent job napping in his bed, we’d rather he stick to his routine and not have random car naps to throw off his groove. Of course, his awake times are still rather short, so if we go out, there is usually a car nap involved anyway. But, I try to save those for his shorter naps of the day so that we just keep him in his car seat for a bit after we come inside, and I usually have to wake him to eat at a certain time anyway.

Fruit Roll-Ups (Fruit Leather)

I’ve come across many recipes for making fruit roll-ups but had a bad experience with some generic fruit leather I had as a kid, and was worried it would just taste awful. This ended up being delicious, easy, and a fun treat for the Fudgelet.

Topic-Changing Thursdays: The Chiplet is 3 Months Old!

I am writing this after a pleasant day with both the Fudgelet and the Chiplet. It has been a rough week. The Chiplet randomly went from doing awesome naps like clockwork to short naps and being cranky about it too. So much screaming and crying from the three of us. And then poor K got to come home each day when we were all exhausted and cranky. So, I don’t know if he just had a rough patch and today is back to normal, or if today was a gift and the “rough patch” is the new normal. Either way, with how fast time is flying, all of the baby sleep problems will be over before I know it.

Halloween in February?

What is this Halloween in February nonsense, you say? It’s called…I could delay this post and schedule it in October of this year but it seems so weird when these were all done pre-Chiplet and I want this October to be with ideas for a family with 2 kids and not just the Fudgelet. So, maybe you don’t have a need for a spider cake in February, but maybe you do? Maybe you can use the same idea to make a heart cake? Or something else fun?
