Awesome As A One

Something I’ve learned

Posted in Uncategorized by allegrator on February 6, 2009

Every day is different when it comes to having a baby.  The sleep patterns change, the expressions, the personality developments.

I’m trying to just let go this idea that there should be this constant, clear pattern in how my little one operates.

Mobile

Posted in Uncategorized by allegrator on February 4, 2009

I ended up not making that bird mobile. I made the BIRDS, as you saw, but didn’t get to the building part.

I did, however, end up buying a mobile that I think is pretty awesome.

So light and airy...

It also reminds me of my grandmother, Grammy.  She loved owls.  I take comfort in believing she’s watching over my little one as she sleeps.

Evolution

My crafting idea has evolved a bit over the last week or so. I can’t share the details just yet because I want to perfect it first…but a little seed has sprouted in my brain and we’ll see where I can take it.

My Big Bowl of Health

Posted in Uncategorized by allegrator on February 2, 2009

So this is what I have for breakfast at least 5 days a week.  It totally looks gross.  My husband thinks I’m INSANE to eat it.  BUT….it’s quite yummy and cozy and fills me up until lunch time, for the most part.

My big bowl of health.  A hot mess, indeed.

So gross looking, right? But so good.

What’s that?? You want to know what’s in it because it looks so darn delectable?  Okay. I’ll share:

  • Oatmeal
  • 1/2 a banana, cut it half length-wise and then sliced up
  • 2 prunes, chopped up
  • small handful of walnuts, chopped up.  I also use almonds sometimes.
  • a heaping tablespoon of flax meal
  • a quick squirt-around of light agave nectar
  • a splash of milk or 1/2 and 1/2
