There were many surprises today..
- LittleZabba had her 6 month check up today. She weighs in at a hearty 15 lb. 6 oz. She is in the 45th percentile for weight. That surprised me only because BigZabba was in the 95th percentile each time we went to the doctor. At 6 months BigZabba was 16 lb. 9 oz.
- Tonight when I was trying to do 10 things at the same time I was surprised with the “helpfulness” of BigZabba. LittleZabba was not happy about her green beans tonight and she just would not stop crying about eating them. So I put the bowl down and continued with making dinner and decided to try again in a few minutes. Well walking away did not help the situation. Without a word BigZabba picked up the bowl and started to feed LittleZabba. The crying stopped and she ate without complaint. I guess she was just tired of seeing my mug in front of her face!
- I am not the most creative when it comes to cooking. So tonight when that time once again rolled around to figure out what to make for dinner I thought I would get out a cookbook and see if anything inspired me. I actually found a recipe that I had all the ingredients for, it sounded good, so I gave it a shot. It was so yummy, surprisingly! So, if you are in need of a good recipe that is fast and surprisingly healthy, this is it..
