ten. & a birthday wish.

Ten months ago today you were born. I want to remember that you love standing at the red table, you finally like when we read you books, your favorite games are chasing daddy and playing hide n seek, you like to talk to your pink bear, you usually still enjoy an early morning feeding and then two more hours of sleep, mango has beat out avocado as your favorite food, and you are clingier than ever to me...rather new since you used to be straight up daddy's girl.

And a couple years before you were born...a very pretty lady from Valley City, ND was born. Happy Birthday gorgeous grandma d. We love you.

half moon trail.

Last night we returned home from a very lovely little vaca.

d's a's & z's

Reagan & Hudson played soooo hard.

This pretty woman loves our babies.

Another pretty lady...who will be 10 months old in 5 days.

These people chose to run 8 miles.

This person chose to eat mass quantities of rum cherry ice cream

and cinnamon rolls.

Wiggle break on the drive home.

Her chipper mood did not continue when we walked in to our empty home. Someone was missing hudson and half moon trail.

pancakes for dinner.

last night we had pancakes for dinner.

based on an old whole wheat flour recipe I added oat bran to boost the fiber (and because I am obsessed with oat bran lately..thanks gwynnie) and replaced honey with sugar so Reagan could eat them (honey causes infant botulism...whatever that is???).

delicious oat bran blueberry pancakes
3/4 c oat bran
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup whole milk
1 egg
1 tbsp melted unrefined coconut oil or canola oil
2 tsp sugar (honey or agave would work great)
frozen wild blueberries
butter or unrefined coconut oil for frying

Mix dry ingredients in a large 2 or 3 cup measuring cup. Add wet ingredients.

Warm up a non stick skillet. When a drop of water sizzles...add some coconut oil and fry up your pancakes. I doubled the recipe and it made enough for dinner last night, breakfast this morning, and a couple leftovers for Reagan. She loves them...basically was panting this morning as I shredded them up on her high chair.

My uncle took this on his phone and sent it to me today....he must be at nana's. I think this photo is framed in her office. Oh how I love them.

Papa, mom, nana circa 1964. Nana: you are still this classy and beautiful...and I know papa would agree.
