Tidbit 1: I can’t believe we’re already two weeks into 2015.
Tidbit 2: This morning one of my daily emails featured an article about fresh baby food delivery services, “Yummy in the Tummy: The District’s Freshest Baby Food Delivery Services.” This would be awesome for parents who want make their own baby food, but are too busy to make it themselves. The food is pricy, but it’s farm fresh and delivered directly to your house or office.
Tidbit 3: Aren’t they precious? Since the day we brought her home, Charlie has adored his little sister. He always greets her when we come home, has to know where she is, and loves to give her kisses.
Tidbit 4: Have you heard of the app Sit or Squat? I laughed at my mom when I saw it on her phone, but now that we have a baby I don’t think it’s so silly… Sit or Squat uses your location to find the closest, cleanest public restroom and allows users to view, rate, review, and add bathrooms. Public restrooms can be absolutely disgusting – there’s toilet paper all over the floor, the sinks are continuously running, there are no paper towels – but desperate times call for desperate measures!
Tidbit 5: I’ve been watching Ellen most afternoons because it’s Evie’s feeding and nap time. I laugh throughout almost all episodes! One day I will be in the audience – preferably one of the 12 Days of Christmas episodes.
Tidbit 6: The Crock-Pot has become my favorite kitchen gadget lately. Last week it was Southwestern Bean & Rice Stew and yesterday it was Chunky Crock-Pot Chicken Noodle Soup. I’m all about wicked easy, one pot, hearty dishes during winter.
Tidbit 7: After a week of debate, I’ve decided to purchase a race pass through our local running store instead of running the R’nR USA Half Marathon. R’n'R USA will always hold a special place in my heart since it was the weekend we found out that we were expecting, but we’re trying to be a bit more frugal with our money since the baby was born. Plus, the race pass will allow me to run four local races rather than just one.
Tidbit 8: Yesterday we were out of coffee. Thank goodness for an awesome friend who saw my desperate plea on Facebook. She delivered and saved the day! Coffee is necessary when your baby is going through a growth spurt and in the early stages of teething – she’s drooling like crazy!
Tidbit 9: Running out of coffee made me think… Why are there no coffee delivery businesses? There’s a pizza shop on nearly every corner. I’m sure I’m not the only parent who would appreciate it.
Tidbit 10: Our family is going through a lot of changes. Fortunately, they’re all positive but it’s still overwhelming.
