Night 2, Day 2

As I woke up this morning, I realized that both of my kids slept through the night. Yup, thats right, THE WHOLE NIGHT! As amazing as it seems right now though, I just don't feel all that rested. I think I didn't sleep very well because I was constantly expecting them to wake up. Jeez... Oh well. Anyway, Adrien sits at his little table right now and eats his banana pancakes. He loves banana pancakes and sweet potato pancakes. I really don't understand why pancakes are one of the few things that he will eat right now. The other thing is strawberries. My boy has a love affair with strawberries. If he knows that we bought strawberries and most times he does, he eats them with every meal and snack. One time, we were at the grocery store and we grabbed the 4 lb box of strawberries and continued to do some more grocery shopping. We pulled up to check out counter, Adrien happily flirting with every person in sight. Then as he is sitting in the cart after the bags have been packed, I realize that the 4 lb box of strawberries is now next to my little boy and he is pointing and asking for one, saying "dis? dis?" with a look of absolute pride on his face. What's a momma to do? Part of me wanted to say no. The other part, the part of me that realized that he did not throw a fit at all in the store, that he got the strawberries out by himself and was now politely (as possible) asking me to give him one said yes. So, there he sat in the cart with a 4 lb box of strawberries and red lips and juice dripping from his chin. It was very cute.

Tonight, my mother-in-law is coming over for a quick babysitting and dinner. I am going to go to the gym for at least a half hour. It is absolutely annoying to go from goign to the gym every other day to only going three times a week and most of those three times has to be on the weekend. I am already feeling bloated and yucky. Ew. I plan to cook chicken. It is going to be just a bit spicy and we are going to have some left over brussels sprouts, corn and brown rice. I really don't like brown rice, but I hear it has extremely healthy qualities, so I am trying. We have also switched to whole wheat flour and I am making sugar cookies with it today... wish me luck. I'm not excited about that one.

Can't wait to hear how the whole wheat sugar cookies turn out. I do whole wheat chocolate chip and absolutely LOVE them. I think they actually taste better than the regular ones. That's not usually the case with whole wheat, but it's nice to be rewarded for eating healthy every once in awhile :)
