Last night, our friends Jen, Jeff, and their son Wyatt came over for dinner.  It’s always wonderful to see friends, but it’s EXTRA nice when they bring us a baby meal.

Jen and Wyatt just won the stroller division of a local race – she’s a speed demon (and Wyatt is a good coach). She and Henry had a nice little talk during which Jen explained that Henry needs to be my coach, too.  Winking smile


They brought over a roasted vegetable quinoa dish and a yummy spinach and strawberry salad.


The best part of the salad was this dressing – not too sweet and just fruity enough.


Jen and Jeff headed out early because Wyatt needed to go to bed, and then our friends Nicole and Isaac stopped by on their way home from a party.  It was nice to be so social and not have to leave the house – I’m not complaining!


We stayed up far too late, but Henry went easy on us last night, so it’s shaping up to be quite the nice Sunday over here.


His hair is getting REDDER every single day!  I’m so excited.


It was cool enough to eat breakfast out on the deck.  I had melty cheese toast and watermelon.


Maggie helped with the watermelon.



Maggie has never met a food she didn’t like.  Speaking of which, here’s a funny (but gross) story.  Yesterday,  Henry’s umbilical cord stump finally fell out. I was changing him in the middle of the night and was completely surprised to see his belly button!  I searched his pajamas and found the stump; I wanted to show it to the Husband so I set it aside on the blanket we change Henry on.  Guess what I couldn’t locate several hours later?  Yup.  I’m pretty sure someone (i.e. Maggie) ate it.  Proof that my dog will literally eat anything. 


I’ll leave you on that note.  Happy Sunday!

    Hahaha that’s a funny but kinda gross Maggie story. My dog will also eat pretty much anything but I’m hoping once she grows out of her puppy phase she’ll be better.

  • Kath July 8, 2012, 9:50 am

    Oh gosh Maggie!! GROSS!!!

    Love the photo of Jen holding H – I want to hold him!!

  • Amanda July 8, 2012, 9:58 am

    Love the fact his hair is getting redder! I joked with my Husband that I wanted ginger kids but didn’t think it overly possible since we bother have more or less brown hair, mine has a lot of red in it though so my fingers are crossed. Claire doesn’t look like she has red hair but in photos we discovered she’s a secret ginger!

  • Nikki July 8, 2012, 10:01 am

    LOVE that picture of Maggie gnawing on the watermelon! Glad I wasn’t eating breakfast when I read about the stump though… 🙂

  • Cindy July 8, 2012, 10:03 am

    Oh dear me Maggie! My dog was the same way and would eat and drink absolutely anything including Kaluah and milk and coffee. The only thing she’d lick and ignore was lettuce, unless it had dressing on it. 🙂

  • Silvia @ skinny jeans food July 8, 2012, 10:24 am

    Well, since you are eating your placenta, you can’t be too grossed out with Maggie ‘-)

    Henry is looking more and more like the spitting image of Kristien…

  • Lexi @ You, Me, & A World to See July 8, 2012, 10:29 am

    Oh gosh I was eating breakfast when my roomie told me about the umbilical cord. SO gross, yet funny 😉

  • Laura (Blogging Over Thyme) July 8, 2012, 10:57 am

    That’s hilarious and disgusting at the same time! Haha

  • Michelle @ Eat Move Balance July 8, 2012, 11:08 am

    Ewwww! Dogs can be so weird about what they’ll eat sometimes. That’s crazy!

  • Laura @ She Eats Well July 8, 2012, 11:10 am

    Those dog-watermelon pics are pretty funny…glad you enjoyed your evening. Both babies are just precious!!!

  • Cassidy July 8, 2012, 11:16 am

    My dog ate my daughter’s umbilical cord, too. Crazy dogs!

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats July 8, 2012, 11:22 am

    Hahahahaha that is so gross but hilarious! and I love those pictures of maggie. Henry seems like such a good baby!

  • hilary July 8, 2012, 11:22 am

    My little girl is 3 days older than Henry…her cord fell off in less than 4 days! I couldn’t believe it. It happened during a nighttime diaper change too. I thought that something was wrong with it coming off so fast, but I guess she’s just a fast healer!

    Funny how different kiddos are.

  • Karlee July 8, 2012, 11:44 am

    ewww haha that’s so gross

  • Clare July 8, 2012, 11:45 am

    First thing I thought in that last picture of Henry: “He looks like a ginger!” 🙂 So, so cute.

  • Molly @ RDexposed July 8, 2012, 11:58 am

    For real-this kid is so cute!!
    Maybe Maggie thought she could absorb some time of human powers by um…doing that.

  • Ginger July 8, 2012, 12:21 pm

    Our lil Fluffy loves watermelon! She’s even learned a few new tricks just to get a small bite!

  • Alyssa July 8, 2012, 12:25 pm

    So Maggie is a real life Jinxy-cat.

  • Sam @ Better With Sprinkles July 8, 2012, 12:49 pm

    Hilarious but gross Maggie story.

    Henry’s so precious – I’m thinking he’s gonna grow up to be a cute ginger kid. 🙂

  • Julia H. @ Going Gulia July 8, 2012, 1:08 pm

    I didn’t even notice the red hair until you mentioned it. SO CUTE!!!! It makes him look older 😛

  • Laura July 8, 2012, 1:27 pm

    Hey, you got the placenta, it’s only fair for Maggie to get the cord stump 😉

  • brooke @ sweats & sweets July 8, 2012, 1:30 pm

    Its like on Sex and The City when Brady’s cord stump fell out and Fattie, Miranda’s cat started to eat it. I think its more funny than gross.

    • Eliza July 8, 2012, 7:17 pm

      I automatically thought of SATC too! lol

    • Claire Zulkey July 9, 2012, 2:51 pm

      same here!

  • Brigid July 8, 2012, 1:38 pm

    Haha, Maggie looks ferocious. Yay for red hair! I always hoped for a little redheaded daughter some day, but I married a sexy Latin man, so I don’t see it happening – and if it did, I think I’d have some ‘splaining to do. 🙂

  • Amber K July 8, 2012, 2:35 pm

    So gross….so funny 😉

  • Sana July 8, 2012, 2:43 pm

    OMG Poor Maggie, she must have been so confused!

  • Verna July 8, 2012, 3:14 pm

    Gross, Maggie! Yeah for red haired baby boys! There aren’t enough red headed boys in this world! Thanks for making more! ; )

  • sallie July 8, 2012, 3:25 pm

    My dog also also ate my child’s umbilical stump. Wyatt looks like he could tip off the table. Please be careful with those bumbo seats; they can be very dangerous and it can happen in a second (

    • Lindsay July 9, 2012, 10:02 am

      Thank you for posting this, Sallie. I can see how they could be dangerous after reading that article! Would never have thought of that before, though…

  • Lee July 8, 2012, 3:48 pm

    That last picture of Maggie and the watermelon is a great shot.

  • Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy July 8, 2012, 4:40 pm

    Hahaha that is gross but funny! I am pretty sure my cat would do the same thing. He will eat anything that isn’t a vegetable.

  • luv what you do July 8, 2012, 5:57 pm

    The roast veggie quinoa looks great. Is there a recipe for that hidden somewhere on your site?

  • Britt July 8, 2012, 8:56 pm

    I taped my Henry’s umbilical cord stump into his baby book ! Can’t wait to show it to him one day

  • Jess July 8, 2012, 9:41 pm

    My goodness! Thank God I’m not alone! that happened to me as well and I was so mortified to tell anyone but now I feel much better! Our dog will eat our babies poop diapers as well.

  • Laura @ The Bright Side July 8, 2012, 10:17 pm

    hahaha that story made my evening. SO GROSS. Does Henry have an innie or an outie?

  • Kyla July 8, 2012, 10:42 pm

    Ahhh! Dogs can be sooooo gross!!!!! Funny!

  • Ellie@Fit for the Soul July 8, 2012, 11:04 pm

    That is so funny and grody! lol. I guess Maggie doesn’t discriminate huh? 😉 And your babay is so adorable! He has pretty eyes~

  • Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed July 8, 2012, 11:05 pm

    Haha, hilarious Maggie pictures… and ew!

  • Maria July 8, 2012, 11:19 pm

    I can’t get enough of watermelon right now 🙂 That’s both funny and gross about the umbilical cord. haha! I’m sure my dog would do something like that. Your baby’s getting cuter by the day. Congrats again!

  • Kylie @ immaeatthat July 8, 2012, 11:32 pm

    Haha, the things dogs will eat! Norman, our yellow lab, has eaten chicken wire (that he dug up from somewhere in the backyard) and another time he ate a sock…both with had to be surgically removed! Thankfully he’s gotten smarter with age!:) and woohoo for the red hair!

  • Jennie July 9, 2012, 6:17 am

    I freaked out when the cord fell out because my husband was at work and missed it (is that weird?)

    Anyway SAME I couldn’t find it! So I panicked and told my husband Button may have eaten it. He politely reminded me that while a super baby, she probably did not have the hand eye coordination to do that. He added that the more likely answer is that the house is a mess and it will turn up. It did and we hired a cleaner! Haha

  • Carin July 9, 2012, 7:10 am

    So jealous that you got a ginger baby! My genes got nixed out by my recessive hubby…. I’m pretending that I understand science here but I obviously don’t. Apparently ginginess comes down to some sort of genetic battle between the couple (unless they’re both ginga) so clearly you were accommodating/won the battle, whereas I didn’t. Grrr.

  • Ali @ Around the VeggieTable July 9, 2012, 9:33 am

    omg those are GREAT Maggie pics 🙂

  • Susanna July 9, 2012, 2:29 pm

    Love those close up pictures of Maggie!

  • Katy @ HaveYouHurd July 10, 2012, 9:33 am

    1) You are so lucky Henry is a ginger! I LOVE GINGERS!

    2) That 2nd pic of Maggie eating the watermelon is PRICELESS!

    3) My bff was visiting this weekend and cut her finger cutting pineapple. My puppy thought it would be a good idea to lick her blood up off the floor. Ew. Zombie puppy.
