Baby Enzo: 12 Month Update

I’m a little late but here’s Enzo’s one year update! I can’t believe we’re past the one year mark. Insane how fast time is truly flying by. Enjoys: crawling at lightening speed, pulling to stand on everything, throwing food and toys (not my fav), and getting into the kitchen cupboards. Dislikes: brushing his teeth, getting licked in the face by Annie …

Reflection on My Postpartum Depression

Now that Enzo is almost a year old, I’ve been flooded with so many emotions about what I experienced and went through almost a year ago. It can be crippling to take myself back to those dark places that I was in and it can be hard to remember those times. But it always reminds me to be thankful for …

Baby Enzo: 11 Month Update

One more month until we have a one year old on our hands? Seriously pinch me! Enjoys: crawling like crazy, pulling up to stand on anything he can, climbing the stairs (when we let him), swinging and trying to play in the dog’s water. Milestones: no walking but a crazy crawler. He is pulling up to stand on everything. I’m guessing it will …

Baby Enzo: 10 Month Update


Enjoys: crawling everywhere, trying to climb on things though he’s not that great at it, pretty much all food right now even veggies!, attempting to feed himself with a fork, and the puppies. Milestones: he is officially crawling and is all over the place. We have to watch him like a hawk because he’s pretty quick. He always goes for shoes and …

Paleo Shepherd’s Pie

2015-07-13 (1)

This recipe is really quick to throw together and so tasty. The combination of lamb with creamy mashed sweet potatoes is so delicious. If you don’t like the taste of lamb or can’t get access to it, you can substitute ground beef. You can mix in your favorite vegetables or mix up the spices however you want. This recipe is …

What I Ate Today: Baby Eats!

Now that Enzo is about 9 1/2 months old he’s been eating 3 meals a day. I’m trying to incorporate as many nutrients as I can throughout the day. Also, Enzo’s iron was low (about a point below what they like to see) so I’m trying to include iron-rich foods along with vitamin C foods at the same meal to …

What I Ate Today – Weekend Cooking

I haven’t done one of these posts in a really long time. I always start the day with the intentions of taking photos of my meals and usually forget after breakfast. I did pretty good this time minus my snacks… Breakfast – two fried eggs on top of leftover roasted sweet potatoes and zucchini with avocado and hot sauce Lunch …

Baby Enzo: 9 Month Update

DSC01541 (683x1024)

Another month has flown by! Baby boy is now 9 months old! As Joe said the other day, he’s entering into his fourth trimester… Enjoys: rolling and manuevering all over the floor in the upstairs game room, the puppies, still saying “da-da” for everything (no “ma-ma” yet!), any and every kind of fruit, other babies and kids. Milestones: no official crawling yet. …

Roasted Sweet Potato & Quinoa Salad


It’s been WAY too long since I posted a recipe on here. To be honest I haven’t done much recipe creation and have been sticking to simple meals most of the time. About a month ago, Joe and I committed to eating vegetarian two nights a week in order to save money. When I buy meat I like to buy …

Baby Enzo: 8 Month Update

DSC01522 (1024x683)

Can’t believe it’s time for another post! Enzo is getting so big and it’s fun watching him grow and change every day. Enjoys: bouncing, baby food pouches (just bought some reusable ones so I can make my own at home), saying “da da” (though I don’t think he knows what it means), using the sign language for “milk” all the time, …
