Taking a Sick Day

Monday, October 14, 2013

My afternoon...
Homemade ravioli class...manga, manga!!! It felt so GOOD to get out and enjoy learning something new with a girlfriend. As a new mother I need this, and I deserve it. That's what I keep telling myself. ;)


My night...
Started with a gooey eye and ended with being covered in thrown up milk. When your child is not 100%, everything shuts down. No one or nothing matters more then the health of your little one. We snuggled and soothed Sawyer until he fell asleep. In the morning we went to the doctor and found out since his tear ducts are still developing he needs drops for his eye (just the one with goo), nose needs suctioning (of boogers...joy :/), and he has acid reflex. All normal for a newborns. Now I can wipe the sweat off my brow and rest easy tonight.

That summed up our Sunday. I leave you with a super yummy and easy fall dinner idea. I know it's simple because after all that it's what was for dinner tonight (it's Monday btw)! It looked gourmet and took under 30 minutes. Beat that Racheal Ray (whom I adore by the way)!
