8 months

This little munchkin is gonna be 8 months on Saturday.

Time sure flies when you are having fun.

Big news of the week: He can now stand on his own! I was so proud!!!

And I was on a roll with making Hyrum food the other day because our visitors, Wendy and Janice (Mav's cousin and friend who helped their daughters move into the BYUH dorms), gave me one of these
for my birthday! Which makes baby food making 10 times easier.

 I made sweet potato, carrots, carrots and peas, potato and broccoli and pear.

And he LOVES it more than the Gerber jar mush.

HIGHLY recommended!

Fall Semester

I am not a student anymore but Fall Semester started today and i am STRESSED!!!!

It totally crept up on me...

with that said...I am not prepared!

I didnt know Mav's class schedule...

which means I had to work out my work schedule...

not to forget babysitters...

my list of things to do when Mav is out of school is no where near half...

uuuhhhgggghhhhh!!!! STREEESSSS!!!!!

then i have other things to worry about too...

like that BLASTED green card application...

S T R E S S ! ! ! ! !

did i mention that Mav has an internship from 3 - 8pm MWF!

and classes from 11 - 2:30!!!

so it tough finding a babysitter for that long...

so if you know anyone who can look after a Hyrum for a decent college student/starting family price...



Much Mahalos!!!

Baby Food

The Gerber baby food that we get for free from WIC is kinda getting old to Hyrum.  He seems to not like the flavour as much as he use to.  So I decided to do a little experiment and make my first ever baby food.

So I started with just carrots...nice and easy for a first timer...

So I boiled it...

While this one looks on...

Boil till soft...

then let the blender at it...

Our blender SUXS so I had to mash it some more with a fork

Add with some baby rice cereal

Then serve...






Warning: Food may make a reappearance on the other end.

Have you made your babys food before? What are your tried and tested tricks that I can adapt? Keep in mine that I DO NOT cook.
