This past weekend, we celebrated Thomas’s first birthday and I’m going to be a bit cliche in saying that I can’t believe how quickly time has flown by. I know most people refer to the 1+ age group as toddlers, but I look at him and I still see this sweet little cuddly baby. Although the same sweet cuddly baby who used to keep us up at night is now keeping us on our toes during the day. We’ve reached the newly climbing and trying to walk stage and now all of our furniture has become his own personal jungle gym, haha. Send help.
We’re just a couple days away from Thomas turning three months old and I can’t believe how time has flown. Well, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch. The weeks are flying by that’s for sure, but those middle of the night feedings are still something else. My sleep deprivation is not as bad as it was those early weeks when it felt like a horrible combination of being drunk and hungover at the same time, along with feeling like someone was pounding my head with a hammer while I was underwater. After not being able to stomach the sight and smell of coffee during most of my pregnancy, I’ve welcomed it back in my life with open arms. Coffee, I promise I will never leave you again.
I’m excited to announce the arrival of the newest member of our family. Thomas arrived on March 25th, 2018 at 8:30pm. He was due on St. Patrick’s Day, but of course he took his sweet time and made me wait an extra 8 days for him to show up. And let me tell you, those extra days when you are 9 months pregnant are looooong, haha.
I didn’t expect to go so long without posting, but here is my first recipe of 2018! The beginning of the year was pretty hectic, what with work, attending prenatal classes at the hospital, and just trying to get everything organized before my leave, and most of all, before our baby’s arrival. I’m now a couple days into my maternity leave and I finally feel like I have a chance to breathe this year.
With Christmas only a couple days away, I imagine that most people already have finalized their holiday baking, but I thought I would throw one more recipe in the mix for all the tea lovers out there. Fun fact: I actually made these cookies at the beginning of the month for our condo’s holiday party, but I forgot to post the recipe until now. Pregnancy brain will do that to you!
