He looks just like Kaelen did and it still gets me once in awhile when I look at him and see my son that never came home... I think how he should be Kaelen but he's not... it's hard to reconcile the two of them as separate but a part of each other because if not for one, the other wouldn't exist...
I'm trying to get back into life... I'm trying to be a person again... I spent all of 2010 waiting and anticipating and now, I'm just being. Being a mom to 3 beautiful children, 2 living, a wife to a husband who is away 2 weeks of every 3, and finding my niche in the world with my hobbies - photography, crochet and scrapbooking/cardmaking. I'm also a horrible cook... okay, not horrible... just not very creative... I make a killer Kraft Dinner and hot dogs but really that's as far as my repertoire goes... lol
So on that topic, I've decided to work my way through my favourite cookbook "Cooking for the Rushed"... I always have a heck of a time deciding which recipe to make so I'm starting at the beginning and going to work to the end and then I'll have marked which recipes I like and which I don't to use again later... I need to start eating healthier and making healthier food for my kids. KD and hot dogs just doesn't cut it all the time and with my husband being out of town so much for work (he's the cook in our family) I have to learn to figure it out. So here's my first creation from the cookbook: Teriyaki (not-so) Chicken Toss with Spaghettini Pasta (not-so because I procrastinated and my chicken went bad and I had to use beef).
We also used our woven wraps again today... I'm a confirmed baby carrier-aholic and have at least 30 carriers so I figure I might as well use them. Today's wrap was Kaelen's Zara Forest 4.2m wrap. I won it a month or two before Kaelen was born (from Bebewearing Mamas) and it started my woven wrap obsession... I wasn't sure we'd be able to do a Front Wrap Cross Carry in it because I'm not tiny and really have never measured it to see how long it actually is. I was tying in the tails but it worked and was comfortable so I can't complain.
Ain't he cute?
Well, he's yibbling and Marrah is overdue for bedtime so I'm signing off... Bye for now!
