Butter, Broccolli, & Baby

I want to know who put butter in their coffee and realized that instead of helping them gain weight as they planned, they found they were LOSING weight. This is sort of like when my mom said that my baby was nursing non stop because there wasn't enough fat in my milks and I should be eating butter and drinking cream. Except when that happened I'm pretty sure I gained at least 5 additional pounds of post baby weight, every woman's dream. Well apparently it was some wack job named Gary Asprey. He has a blog, a book, a podcast and it's just another diet like Atkins or South Beach. But better obviously because he tells you to eat a ton of butter, grass fed butter. He must be talking about wacky tobacky, how else would he have discovered the miracle that is butter coffee. This sounds like BS, and maybe a little bit delicious. My co-worker just ordered the starter pack for her hubbie to try. Which means her. 
Coffee blended w/ coconut oil, taste just like creamer!
I've been having the strangest cravings lately, nothing crazy, just new. Like brussel sprouts, and broccoli. Last night I ate a giant bowl of steamed broccoli with parmesan cheese and pepper at like 9 p.m.! It was so good. And now I want more, but doused in butter like mom used to make.

Do you watch The Bachelor? I thought Juan Pablo's season was bad, and it was, but oh man. This one is just awful. The girls running around drunk the whole time, The Bachelor himself delivering his cheesy lines with more cheese than even he knows what to do with. And he's made out with like half of the girls already and it's only episode 3 tonight.

This past month and a half has been ca-razy. I'm sure it was for a lot of people, but man. Time flying by and all that. We went to Minnesota because it has been ages since I've had a white Christmas. Well guess what? No snow. So dumb Minnesota. Thanks for NOTHING. Except for us all getting sick that is. I was puking. Baby and husband had major sniffles, which are just now clearing up. The next journey to MN will be a warm weather one. So the very worst thing also happened in MN. The very worst thing, that's not really the very worst, but kind of. We left our camera in the center console of the rental car. We still haven't gotten a call to say they found it. Sadly I don't think we will be seeing it again :(

I've been told that as a parent I am not allowed to complain about being tired. I knew what I was signing up for, apparently. And I did, I do not deny that. I am actually a very high functioning person when tired, which almost makes it worse. Like I forget I'm tired. I finish tasks with complete confidence, tucking the file happily away, and completely forgetting everything regarding the task. That is how tired effects me. Confidence? When sleep is plentiful I lack finality upon completion of a task. I like to let the file sit on the corner of my desk for a few days in case there is any follow up, or in case I forgot to do something. Which is oft the case in my line of work. Well anyways, he seems to be starting down the path to better sleep. Now if I could just let him out of our bed and into his crib :/

Flynn will be 9 months in 6 days, and he just cut his first tooth! It's a crooked lil number on the bottom and boy is it cute. I was pointing my finger at his nose and he lifted his lil chin up and gave my finger tip a few bites until I realized he was showing me his tooth! And when I noticed boy was he ever proud! His vocabulary is growing everyday, and the other morning at 6 a.m. Carlos rolled over in bed and Flynn totally whispered da-da. We both heard it, he was looking right at his papa when he said it, but that's been it. My heart just weeps with love for this baby boy who is mine. He has such sweet temperament and is already a little jokester.  We are so blessed.
