We survived day one!! And successfully avoided a thin mint craving disaster.  But that means I woke up extra hungry and was happy to find myself fully satisfied after one of my bkfast sandwiches I wrote about yesterday.  Let's recap the rest of the day, shall we?

After camping out outside for an hour because Google convinced me there was carbon monoxide in the house, Brett came home for lunch with a detector in hand.  NO C-O TO BE FOUND. Phew.  Anyways, I cooked turkey burgers for lunch (Jennie-O) on a slice of whole grain 100 calorie sandwich thins (which aren't all that bad actually) and a slice of part-skim cheddar cheese.  For the sides, we had a few of the 100 calorie popped bbq chips--Dr. Oz approved-- and a beeeg bowl of strawberries. 'Twas good.

For dinner, we both cooked, which is one of my fav things to do together.  And decided to make this baked tilapia recipe.  We wanted to feel like we were eating semi-normal and usually love tilapia that is dipped in carbs.  But we made it healthier by not using all those ingredients and instead took about 2 tablespoons of Italian bread crumbs mixed with a few pours of EVOO-- making a verrrrrrry thin layer on top of the plain fish but enough to be yummy & crunchy.  Then had green beans and brown rice on da side.

I so proud of us.

3 weeks, 1 day left.
Doctor appointment Thursday.
Everything hurts.

For all the mommas out there-- did you find that these or these were necessary/really helpful in the wee beginning?  Right now all we have are regular onesies and side snap pajamas, but I've been seeing those tops on all different websites. Please advise.



  1. Babies are waaaayyy more resilient than we has parents give them credit for. If you like them bc they are cute, then by all means indulge. But if you have the regular over the head onsies and don't really feel like getting more stuff just to have him out grow the damn thing in a month, I guarantee you won't be missing anything.

  2. I didn't buy the type with snaps because I didn't want my girls to have to lie on them - but that was way back in the dark ages when mommies could put their babies down on their tummies. Oh my gosh, every one of them survived!!!
