5:15 AM: Bob Harper’s Pure Cardio – COMPLETED
It’s been a busy week on the work front. I’m working for two attorneys and by the end of the day, I am tired. Not to mention, the cold, frigid weather we’re having and our house that feels like an ice-box. I know, I know. It’s January. Of course the weather will be cold. I don’t expect anything less. I am looking forward to this weekend when the temps will be back in the 50s. (Yes, this is how we all get sick. Single digits back to mid-50s). I’m meeting up with the running group for, what I think will be 10-12 miles.
Yesterday, Lili had her 6-month doctor’s visit. Well, it’s really her 6-month, 2-week visit. We had it scheduled for last week, but I didn’t think it was fair for her to get shots before the holiday. However, had I known that our baby was going to be so brave and not even CRY when she got not 1, but 2 shots, I would have kept that appointment last week. I couldn’t believe it. Her lower lip did a slight quiver, but after that, shew as FINE!
According to BabyCenter: (6-months; 2weeks)
Your baby’s growing tower of babble indicates movement toward talking, although the ability to form words and sentences is still many months away. You may hear the same syllable repeated over and over with variations in pitch and tone. Or she may make more complicated sounds, such as two or even three different syllables strung together. Your baby is experimenting with them like a musician testing out a new instrument.
How your baby’s growing:
Your baby may favor one hand for a while and then switch to the other. But you can’t really tell whether she’s a lefty or a righty until she’s about 2 or 3 years old.
Don’t try to influence your baby’s hand preference (it’s determined before birth). Forcing a child to use one hand when she’s inclined to use the other may confuse her and lead to problems with hand-eye coordination, dexterity, and handwriting down the road.
She really is sweet as pie. Speaking of pie, I made my homemade Apple Pie the other night. Please don’t laugh at my lattice skills. I know, it’s not good.
I got this recipe from The Food Network back in 2009 and was in the baking mood. I would bake more often if I had the time, but with a baby, it’s definitely HARDER to find the time. Every day I say to myself, “Okay, I want to cook this, or that!!!” And then, I get home and all I want to do is play with the baby. I’m still trying to find my balance.
How many times a week do you (or your spouse/significant other) cook? I really need to get back to my cooking schedule. I used to cook 4-5x a week. Pedro sometimes doesn’t want to eat leftovers, but he’s getting better at it.
