My Big Girl

It seems like time is just flying by. The old adage is true that time flies when you're having fun...and we are definitely having the time of our lives with our Plum. My baby is getting so big! I was just looking at *old* pictures...*way* back when she was just in her first month...and I literally sat here at the computer crying just looking at how tiny and fragile she was. It seems like we brought her home just yesterday and yet it seems like she's always been with me.

The pictures above are of her in her new Christmas high chair. The amber teething necklace was also a gift from Mom. I hope it helps; those toofs are definitely trying to make their way into the world. Although we had a gigantic snow and ice storm which prevented us from traveling to Grandma and Grandpa H's for Christmas, we still enjoyed a super-cozy and very special first Christmas snowed in, just our little family. Now that the weather has subsided we'll be celebrating with the grandparents H this coming weekend. It's kinda fun; we get Christmas extended this year! The holidays will continue as grandparents T are coming mid-January. I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy and lucky and blessed right now... so on that note I think I'm going to climb into bed next to my loves and hold this feeling in my heart. Good night, sweet friends.



Celeriac is your Friend

We signed up for an organic, local fruit and vegetable delivery service a couple months ago in an effort to eat healthier and focus on local, in season foods. As you can see, it's encouraged us to try some new things. We're pretty vegalicious here at the HTH household but there are some veggies that we hadn't tried, the above being one of them. As it turns out, the aforementioned is a celery Root, or celeriac and it ended up in a quite delicious potato/celeriac gratin. My favorite thing about this service, provided by Organics to You, it opening up our box and decided what to cook from our surprise bounty. We've also been eating so much healthier, focusing on whole foods and less processed sugars. We are on the waiting list for a CSA starting in the spring but I think this will get us through the winter nicely.

In Plum news, it seems like she is growing and changing every day. What an exciting time this is for us! She's scooting around now, rolling from front to back, grabbing everything in sight and becoming quite the little comedian. She just loves to laugh and loves to make us laugh, which we've been doing a lot of. She also is completely and utterly in love with Rigby, her new BFF. Although he's really great with her, Rigby's not quite sure that it qualifies as love just yet. I think we'll get there though.
