MPM once again

I have been so sporadic about posting anything, but I did manage to get a Menu Plan put together. Of course we haven't been sticking to it as well as I would like. But hey, I think thats par for the course with a new baby. And how long is a new baby considered a new baby? Baby Girl will be 7 weeks old tomorrow. I can't believe how fast these past weeks have gone. And she amazes us everyday with her big grins (slide show to be included!) and how well she can hold her head up already. Our little ones, although not little for long, are such a blessing. Even when driving me nuts. I was in the kitchen, getting Train Junkie his juice, and the boys were underfoot, getting into everything, pulling stuff off the counters. And I told TJ to knock it off or I was going to lose my mind. At which point, he turned to Daddy and said (or rather, whined) "But I want Mommy to lose her mind!"
My little guy is notoriously cranky if he doesn't get a nap. But if he does get one, we have a hard time getting him to sleep at night. He fell asleep yesterday in the car on the way to our friends house and then finished his nap on her couch. Of course he had himself a little accident so I had to pick him up some shorts and undies at Target. Because Train Junkie gets a train mag every now and then, it seemed only fair that Little Guy should get a magazine to look at too. The obvious choice was a Monster Truck magazine. He LOVED it. Little Guy flipped through it pointing out trucks until he came across a page with Jeeps. Which hubby has.
Little Guy got very excited,"Look at the Jeep, thats very special to Daddy!"
I know, I know, there is supposed to be a Menu Plan in here somewhere!
Here we go...

After I came home from some major grocery shopping the other night, hubby went out to bring in the groceries while I fed Baby Girl. This is what he came in with instead!

Which is kind of funny since while we live within walking distance of the river, the beach is a good 20-30 minutes away. The boys got a kick out of it and decided to name it Herman. But then Herman had to go back outside because SURELY his mom and day missed him...

And finally, here is the promised slides of my SMILING baby girl!!

thanks for sharing the slide show! she is growing up so fast! what a cutie!

your menu looks great - and don't worry if it doesn't work out just like you plan; there will be plenty of years later for cooking! :)

Menu looks great, as always! Blackberry pancakes, yum-o :) We're probably going to have tomato soup and grilled cheese, but we're dry as a bone all week. Send me some rain, PLEASE!

Love the photos, she is getting so big, and she is (of course) too adorable for words :)
