10 Things our 10 month old is doing
3.) Spitting...sticking tongue out and blowing This is non-stop fun and a recent discovery.
4.) Crawling around the house pushing a ball. In this pic he got distracted by the rug.
5.) He is getting 4 top teeth at the same time. He is in a decent mood considering...OUCH...I tried to get a picture, but it wasn't happening!
6.) Playing peekaboo, again...all the time.
7.) Pulling up to standing on whatever will hold him. Even if it is one of the dogs. (wish I had a picture)

I wanted to post a sweet recipe because I really want something sweet, but I'm not letting myself have anything 'bad' right now. I am working really hard to get in shape for summer! So you guys can try this recipe and let me know what you think!! I made this so many times last year, and I remember posting it, but I didn't realize it was so close the same date as last year! Enjoy :)

Layla has begun to feel better, and I know this because she is getting bossy again! That is fine with me~yippee. It really wouldn't be such a big deal...heck tons of children get sick all the time. BUT, Layla really hasn't been sick at all in her 3 1/2 years. We have been so lucky. It is really hard to see your munchkin in pain. Her fever was so high and she hasn't slept in two days. That isn't normal, and those of you that know me know that my kiddos are scheduled sleepers. They both are really good about going to bed and sleeping through the night. She was in our bed the past two nights....Aghhhh. I love her, but can't sleep with her. Anyway, we made a trip to the Doctor this morning. They tested her for everything, and she is all clear, so the outcome is just a random virus. That is even more stressful for me...103 temp and no explanation. Oh well, we are happy she is MUCH better and almost back to her spunky little self!
Here is a picture of one of the pages she colored today. See, the smile is almost normal! She loves it when I print coloring pages. This website has dot to dots and all kinds of fun indoor activities. Check it out on a sick or rainy day.

Happy Mother's Day
I am so lucky to be mommy two the most amazing kiddos ever! It has been a mellow Mother's Day this year. Last night when I got home from my Spa trip, Layla was sick. High fever and she even threw up. She has had fever on and off all day today as high as 102.7 degrees. We have just been hanging out relaxing and hibernating. Bless her little heart, I hope she feels better soon, and I hope the rest of our household will stay well. Say some prayers for us!

3 posts in one day...
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup of water
1 cup of fat free mayonnaise
1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp. paprika
fresh cracked pepper
Put chicken in slow cooker. Mix remainder of ingredients and cook for 3-4 hours on high.
This is my version of the one in the book, I changed it up a bit.
I served the chicken with whole wheat pasta and broccoli. We skipped eating the sauce because the chicken was so tender! Gary is loving the slow cooker foods because I am trying new things. It is so fun. I'm gonna look for a good slow cooker oatmeal recipe. Can you imagine waking up that that yummy smell? HC and I would be the only ones to eat it though...the other 2 aren't oatmeal eaters. Have a great weekend and a Happy Mother's Day!
