We actually celebrated Thanksgiving twice this year – once with each family! My in-laws hosted the weekend before Thanksgiving, which was a good test run on how L would eat. I whipped up a batch of sweet potatoes with cinnamon and almond milk for him and sautéed some green beans with garlic and mushrooms and… Continue reading Baby’s First Thanksgiving
A friend and I were talking about asking for experiences for our kids for Christmas over a bunch of things that will be tossed aside in a few months time (seriously, these kids outgrow toys in 90 days!).
