A treat for your tots.

Last week I got this recipe from Mo's pediatrician. She suggested it in place of "those cheesy crackers that are so bad for our babies." Yeah.. um.. my babies NEVER eat those ;)
I decided to whip up a batch when we got home to see if Moses really would love them. And, gasp, he does! I have made them both with the graham cracker and without and I like them much better without. If you do leave it out add more flax seed! If you want to take these out and about I would go ahead and add the graham crackers, they are a tiny bit sticky without it.

1/2 cup nut butter
1/3 cup powdered milk
1-2 T honey or agave nectar
1-2 T ground graham cracker
1-2 T ground flax seed

Combine all ingredients in a mixer and mix until combined. Then press into small balls with your fingers. Store in the refrigerator.

**I usually post recipes at, but I wanted those of you that don't check in there to have this recipe!**

Baby Hayes

I had an ultrasound this week! This little one is due on July 30th, which probably means he or she won't be making his/her debut until mid-August! The morning sickness is in full swing over here, but we're hanging in and looking forward to, well, it stopping :) I'm trying to avoid the Unisome and B6 this go around - I'm just not sure I can handle all those sleeping pills with two little ones to care for! The Zofran helps for sure, but the side effects are pretty yucky and even while taking it I may get sick 6-7 time a day. The good thing about this time around is that I know it will end (even if it takes another 7 months) and I know just how sweet the reward is at the end!
We love you, little one!

The thing is.

By my calculations I am about 8 weeks pregnant. Eight. As in barely first trimester. What, what, what is this about??

Sweet Baby Hayes

We are so, so thrilled to be expecting again. Our little brood is growing, growing and we feel so blessed.. and a tad overwhelmed! I mean, Moses is only going to be about two and a half when the little one arrives. Wowza, three under two and a half. Keep us in your prayers :) We really have no idea when the little one is due, but we have an ultrasound on December 21 (less than three weeks now!) to find out. I keep reminding myself that I don't have to be ready for three yet - one day at a time, Hayes! We are also hoping for an easier pregnancy this time around, and that I can continue to nurse Sarah until she is one - only 5 more months!
Thank you, everyone, for sharing in our joy. Please join us in praying for a healthy first trimester.

I heard a clunk, clunk, clunk coming down the hallway...
and there was Moses with my running shoes and blackberry - ready to go!
