Call It Breakfast

Oh, Henry.

iFeed Baby app:  Sometimes I look back over the log from the first week of Henry’s life to remind myself that yes, it really could be worse.  Hah.


Henry – you are lucky you are so cute and fun.


Don’t try to look so innocent for the blog!  Winking smile


Obviously, a total Zombie Mom kind of morning.  On days like this, I simply open the fridge and remove some leftovers from dinner.  I know dinner leftovers are traditionally eaten at the next lunch, but I have a brain by noon.  Plus, I kind of figure if you add eggs and a side of coffee to any dish, it becomes breakfast.


Case in point:


Leftover brown rice, tofu, corn, kale, and Mmmm Sauce with eggs and cherries.


And coffee.  Obviously.

Infographic of the Day


I’m kind of obsessed with infographics lately.  Here’s a cool one about marathon running from


Happy Tuesday!  It is Tuesday, right?

    I love that graphic! I think “pooping yourself” should be added to the fears list.. Ha

    What a great app! It save you from having to write it all down..

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat July 24, 2012, 8:15 am

    Ooh I love that infographic! Sadly I’m in that 17% affected by Achilles tendonitis but am super duper pleased to report that I’m FINALLY better! Sounds like Henry needs quite a bit of attention in the early mornings…. hope you get a little rest today! 🙂

  • Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed July 24, 2012, 8:18 am

    Wow that’s quite a lot of feedings! Stay strong! And yes, anything can be bfast 🙂

  • Jessica July 24, 2012, 8:24 am

    Love the infographic!
    And I hate to brake it to you, but your nursing schedule looks about like mine does – and I’ve got a 7 month old! At least you a four hour stretch in there – I’m jealous! 🙂 I’ve only gotten one 4 hour stretch of sleep in over two weeks (stupid teething + a huge growth spurt). It makes it really tough when I’ve got to be in the office every morning! Good thing they are cute, isn’t it? Hopefully Henry’s a better sleeper than my little girl. I thought that we’d have it easy when she started sleeping in 6-7 hour stretches around two months, but then the 4 month sleep regression hit, then she started rolling (so we had to stop using the swaddle), then teething, and tons of growth spurts, etc. That was the thing I least expected with a baby – I thought that sleep would be a linear progression (starting out bad, and slowly getting better), but it’s still all ups and downs, 7 months in. And between my low supply (can’t risk missing a feeding) and my husband’s job as a firefighter, I’ve done every night wake-up on my own. So you have my total sympathies – sleep deprivation is SO rough.
    I hope you get more sleep tonight!

  • Samantha Angela July 24, 2012, 8:30 am

    I think that’s my favourite picture of Henry yet!

  • Barbara July 24, 2012, 8:30 am

    loving the graphic! and Henry is just adorable – he makes me smile in the morning!

  • Meagan July 24, 2012, 8:32 am

    Thank god for iPhones, right? What ISN’T there an app for?

  • Maryea {Happy Healthy Mama} July 24, 2012, 8:36 am

    Aren’t the baby apps great? I use Babybix to track everything (feeding+naps/nightsleep) and I can’t imagine how I survived my first child without it. 🙂 Hang in there–I won’t say it will get better but you’ll get used to it. 😉

  • kelly July 24, 2012, 8:39 am

    Hah, yes it could be much worse. My daughter is 9 months old and she gets up almost every hour on the hour at night. I don’t know how I function!

  • Megan July 24, 2012, 8:46 am

    Oh man, I’m there with you! 4 month old but still sleep deprived. She did sleep for a 5 hour stretch last night, so the feedings will spread out.

    On days like those (mama zomebie days), I let myself watch bad television for a good hour or two with coffee (b/c inevitably the baby takes a long snooze in the morning after partying all night).

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats July 24, 2012, 8:54 am

    oh gosh, I hope you get a nap in!!! Haha it IS a good thing he’s so cute!

  • Clare July 24, 2012, 8:55 am

    Henry is the sweetest looking little guy, gorgeous eyes 🙂

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) July 24, 2012, 9:07 am

    It is definitely a good thing kids are cute…even as they get older! Henry looks so sweet and innocent…he just wanted a little extra mommy time! You really can’t blame him, can you…

  • Robin July 24, 2012, 9:16 am

    I loved the marathon stats/guide. They did get one of the facts wrong though. The Twin Cities Marathon is NOT in December! It is October! Running a marathon in December in Minnesota would not be safe.

    • Cassie July 24, 2012, 9:20 am

      I was going to say the same thing! Twin Cities Marathon is in October. Could you imagine if it was in December! Yikes! that would be horribly cold!

    • Nicole July 24, 2012, 9:55 am

      I was going to comment on the same thing – it would be FREEZING to run here in December!

  • Liz July 24, 2012, 9:21 am

    I love that infographic! Oh, and super cute pic of Henry – looks just like Kristien 🙂

  • Lindsay J July 24, 2012, 9:28 am

    Hang in there!! Our baby ate a lot and slept little. We were zombies too! Everyone had advice on how to stretch the feedings and lengthen the sleep durations, but our baby was hard-headed. We accepted how he wanted things and let him lead the way. Today I have a happy and healthy 11-month old and I wouldn’t change a thing.

  • Nina July 24, 2012, 9:35 am

    Maybe there was something in the air last night because that looks almost exactly like Vincent’s schedule. I can definitely sympathize.

  • Melissa July 24, 2012, 10:31 am

    That phone app is awesome! I just found my daughter’s nursing schedule on a stained up piece of cardstock while packing and felt a little sad; I even wished I could go back (she is 4 now). I nursed on demand and she ate every hour or so for her first three months. When she was not nursing she was crying. I know it sucks now but it does get better; you will never regret it and even miss it one day (you get used to the sleep deprivation; mine still does not sleep through the night). Coffee, coffee, coffee.

  • Liz @ Tip Top Shape July 24, 2012, 10:43 am

    Ha, yes it is Tuesday! And eating dinner leftovers for breakfast is totally acceptable. I may or may not occasionally do that with pizza 😉

  • Courtney July 24, 2012, 10:47 am

    It is tuesday! And Henry is quite cute 😛

  • Erin @ erinberries July 24, 2012, 10:47 am

    I’ve never ran a marathon. I’m on my weight loss journey, but I think I want to start training. Any suggestions for a beginner?

  • Jessica @ New Girl, New City July 24, 2012, 11:09 am

    It really IS a good thing Henry is super cute… I don’t know how you do it. You are SuperWoman!
    And I LOVE that marathon info!

  • Amy July 24, 2012, 11:28 am

    looks like a perfect breakfast to me!!

  • Kristen@Change of Pace July 24, 2012, 11:31 am

    I think it’s great you are eating leftovers for breakfast! It’s easy, already prepared, and healthy. 🙂

  • Lisa July 24, 2012, 11:42 am

    I’m curious, why do you have to keep track of what he eats?

  • Amber K July 24, 2012, 11:45 am

    Yes! It’s Tuesday. But to be fair, I only know that because it’s my husband’s birthday. And I’m seeing a doctor tomorrow. Seriously must get better!

  • Ruby Leigh July 24, 2012, 11:57 am

    One problem with the inforgraphic (and I know it’s not yours): the Twin Cities Marathon is in October, not December. I should know; I’m in it!

  • Alex @ Healthy Life Happy Wife July 24, 2012, 12:05 pm

    Love that infographic! So many fun facts 🙂

  • Carina July 24, 2012, 12:38 pm

    Cheap Sally needs to do some research on the dates of those marathons she lists — Twin Cities is in October! Has been for years. Drives me crazy how someone can poorly research something like that and then it just gets copied and reposted (I know you had nothing to do with it!).

  • Katie @ Talk Less, Say More July 24, 2012, 12:52 pm

    What an awesome info graph! Love it.

    And there’s nothing wrong with a few left overs for dinner. Whatever you can muster up. 🙂

  • Brigid July 24, 2012, 1:15 pm

    That picture of Henry is so cute. I can’t stand it. I want a tiny baby so much!

    And I eat savory stuff for breakfast all the time. Food is food!

  • jen July 24, 2012, 1:19 pm

    i love that the philly is worldly enough to make the poster. it’s my home town and i’ve done it 3 times!

  • Sam @ Better With Sprinkles July 24, 2012, 1:48 pm

    Pretty sure that graphic has absolutely everything I could ever want to know about running/marathons. So useful!

  • Lexi @ You, Me, & A World to See July 24, 2012, 2:15 pm

    Awesome infographic! I don’t know that I’ll ever run a marathon, but it’s interesting nonetheless.

  • Julia H. @ Going Gulia July 24, 2012, 5:27 pm

    Oh gosh, I’m tired just looking at how your night went. You are superwoman for even blogging at all when you’re already busy with Henry!

  • Katie July 24, 2012, 8:04 pm

    I love the info graphics! Thanks for sharing!!

  • Maria July 24, 2012, 9:56 pm

    I love the stats from the info graphics! Thanks for posting that app, I’ll have to download it!

  • Caitlin July 25, 2012, 9:29 am

    I agree with a PP that stomach and bathroom issues should be added to the list of runner’s fears.

  • Meghan July 25, 2012, 3:15 pm

    For all you Virginia girls (and anyone near VA!) the Richmond marathon and half marathon is in November and the route is pretty great

  • Jennifer July 26, 2012, 3:22 pm

    Hi Caitlin- My baby is 10 weeks and does this from time to time! It’s EXHAUSTING. One thing that I do is make sure she gets a full feeding each time. I used to have to use a cool washcloth on her feet or forehead! On the other hand, Henry may just be going through a growth spurt 🙂
