I made dinner last night… Gasp!

Can you believe it? For those who don’t know .. I haven’t made any meals for as long as baby has been here and a couple a weeks before he arrived.  It’s not that I haven’t wanted to… I was just so tired. Granted my angel of a mother was with me for over a month and made all of our meals! Thanks MOM!!!!

Now that she’s gone I’ve had to fend for myself – boohoo poor me :(. Children apparently have “witching hour” in which they get fussy.. And that falls under the time I need to prepare dinner. So it’s been hit or miss. But last night baby Nico was calmer and daddy was able to hold him and put him to sleep (good job daddy.. He usually hands him over when he starts to cry)

Did you know babies cry cause they want to sleep?? I mean just go to sleep. You have that down to a T. How hard is that? Well.. I didn’t know this. I’ve had very limited amounts of baby time under my belt so hang in there guys.

As you might have noticed by the copious amounts of photos I’ve been posting (you can follow me on Instagram at ellen83 for your daily dose of baby cuteness) I’m holding the heck out of my child.. I mean — come on.. He’s only this little now. But that also means I have limited amount of time to do anything else i.e brush teeth/hair. 
He took some great naps yesterday.(might I add… In his big boy crib.. I usually keep him in his bassinet
I was able to even create this cute little logo… Btw,What do you guys think?? 
Well last night I made one of my go to meals – rice, beans, ground beef & potatoes with an arugula salad.  I missed eating my food, it was good. Hubby was happy, he has been saying to me lately if I remember how to cook.. Clever little guy. 
He just had a friend arrive from Brazil that’s staying with us so I suppose I have to be a good host and start making some  meals. 
How about you? When did you regain your cooking superpowers? Slow poke like me or right off the bat? You superwoman you!!
What was your first family meal? Want me to share my recipe, let me know in the comments below. 
Until next time!

  1. This was cute. Go at your own pace. You have to take care of yourself as well. There is no getting back to your routine, because your old routine is gone. You have to adjust to a new one. You got this!!!

  2. You go Ellen. I didn't have much of a choice. When you have an older kid at home it's COMPLETELY different. You'll see. There is no time to nap, rest or even pee for that matter. lol… Let alone NOT cook. I wish! My first pregnancy I didn't cook for the whole 9 months and a lot more after she was born. But the second one around, I had to be superwoman as you call it. lol. In the beginning i'd put her in the baby bjorn and cook away. Now she's happy in her swing or the high chair. 🙂 Awesome baby! Very attached to me though. Good luck with the blog!
