Menu for 6/3/2013-6/9/2013

As of Friday morning we are a pacifier free house!  We weaned Bailey from her pacifier gently over the last 4 days.  She really only used it during naps and at bedtime anyway so it was easier than I had expected.  I made her take her nap Wednesday and Thursday without a pacifier, then Friday morning I took it from her when she woke up and didn't give it back.  Wednesday was really rough.  We had a 4 hour nap time because she cried for almost 2 hours before she finally fell asleep.  Thursday was almost as bad.  She cried for 20 minutes, slept for 40 minutes, then woke up and cried for another hour.  Friday at nap time she cried for about 20 minutes then slept for over 2 hours.  At bedtime she cried only a few minutes then went on to sleep.  She only woke up once during the night and did not require the pacifier to get back to sleep.  She napped Saturday with no problems and went to bed without crying at all.  We are so lucky to have such a good little girl.

We had a very busy Saturday.  I worked Saturday morning and left Bailey with Aaron.  When I got home I had to put together a couple of fruit cobblers to take out to the lake.  Aaron's sister-in-law and her parents were camping at a lake about 40 minutes away and invited us out to have a cookout.  I brought a peach cobbler and a blackberry cobbler.  I was really pleased with the feedback especially because I had to really adapt the recipe for the peach cobbler because I didn't have any plain yogurt.

This was our view from the campsite.  We were right on the water.  There were some ducks that went floating by.  Bailey learned to throw rocks in the water and accidentally threw one straight up in the air.  It came back down on Aaron's head and she laughed.  What is it with kids enjoying seeing adults get hurt?

Aaron's sister-in-law has a 1-2 person camper.  It's very small, but much nicer than I had expected.  She has air conditioning inside and a tiny fridge and sink.  I was very impressed.  Bailey was getting a bit overheated so we let her sit inside while she ate her very first marshmallow.

She played in the "kitchen" for a very long time.  Notice those rocks on the mat?  She put those there.  She has an affinity for gravel.  She also filled an empty plastic water bottle with rocks.

It was a fun night.  We even drove upstream to the dam when it got dark and the lights came on.  Its surprisingly pretty.

Tonight my dad made shredded pork tacos that were excellent.  He had sauteed peppers and onions, refried beans, lettuce, tomato, black olives (my favorite), cheese, sour cream, taco sauce, and whole wheat tortillas. The pork was so delicious and I really love sauteed peppers on tacos.  I think I might actually like fajitas if I got them without the onions.

Bailey was tired and cranky so we had to come home early, but before we left we went on a tour of the driveways in Dad's cul de sac.  Bailey went up one driveway, then across and up another, then across and up another... it looked like she was making a funny shaped star the way she kept crossing the street.  Some of the neighbors were walking their dog, Marley, who I think is a poodle or poodle mix, and Bailey got to pet her.  She even got to wear her new Rainbow Dash outfit tonight.

Since we didn't get to have the chili dog casserole last night I have moved it to this week.  We already have all of the ingredients so it should save us a bit on our groceries for the week.  Actually, since I didn't get to the store until Thursday last week I have all the food we need for the week except for Friday night.

The schedule will be different.  Nana broke her arm last week trying to flip Bailey's pool over to empty it and is having surgery tomorrow to set it.  We will still go to Nana's, but I will be providing lunch and probably dinner on Tuesday.  Also, Dad has other plans on Sunday so we will be on our own for dinner Sunday.
