Sunday, Sunday

November 12, 2012

I’m blogging about my baby in between teaching my composition classes—I guess this really is striking a balance between work, family, and play?  Winking smile 

Feeling pretty good this morning—operation “Cry it Out, Morning Edition” is fully underway.  This morning (as expected), Lila woke up around 5:15 ready to rumble.  Ryan and I lay in bed, listening to her cry for about 15 minutes. It seemed like it would never stop, but then around 5:30, she settled back down, stopped crying, and went back to sleep until 6:15.  SUCCESS!  I’ll keep you updated on our progress!

Yesterday was a nice, lazy Sunday.  I went to a hot yoga class while Ryan watched Lila, and then we traded off and he went to the gym.  We took some nice walks outside in the sun—and I’m glad we did, because it is POURING today.  Bleh.  Rainy Mondays are the worst.

In fact, the weather was so nice yesterday, we had a little impromptu photoshoot for Lila in the backyard:




How cute is this hat?  Baby clothes are impossibly adorable. Sigh.

We made an easy pasta dish last night:


Mushrooms and soy sausage sautéed in olive oil, seasoned with truffle salt and herbes de provence, then deglazed with wine, served over spaghetti and topped with parm.

Mama had no trouble finishing off the rest of the wine:


…while Ryan fed Lila dinner.


We ended the night with a little naked baby time on the bed:



It’s her favorite…and ours too.  That baby loves rolling around in her birthday suit. 

Hope your Monday is off to a great start.  Gotta go teach!

    Agreed! Babies love the nudity! I need some hot yoga in my life.

    Birthday suites are the best! 😉

    She is just so darn cute! Love those pictures of her outside!

    I’m sure letting your baby “cry it out” isn’t easy. But I can remember when my parents used to do that to me (yes, I really can remember!) and I know when they ignored me it made me think….”ok, this just isn’t working” so I didn’t do it often. In other words, it’s smart!!

    The dinner sounds delicious. I LOVE mushrooms in pasta (and, in anything really…)
