Aww Sticks

in All Posts

SOOOOO thankful I just backed up my iPhone.  Because I found it in the bottom of the dryer.  Whoops.


At least it’s really, really clean now.  And smells really, really good.


On a brighter note, I was browsing blogs this morning (on my iPhone… when it still worked) and found this delicious recipe from Fitnessista.  Don’t you love it when you read a tasty recipe and realize you’ve already got all the ingredients in your kitchen?!   Booyah.


Healthy Baked Zucchini Sticks


A very tasty creation, indeed.


I added a spring of fresh rosemary (from my giant bush in the backyard) to the breading, which was made from brown rice krispies.  Yum.


Time for TV – we’re re-watching The Office from the beginning.  Henry is sleeping (unswaddled!) in his big boy crib for now – let’s see how long it lasts…  Real crib + unswaddled is a pretty big step up from the little bebe days. 


Sweet dreams.  Smile

    Look at his little belly!! 🙂

    My boys used to do their best sleeping before midnight as infants- after that was anyone’s game! But that phase doesn’t last long– (though it feels long!)– and soon will be a distant, fond-in-a-weird-way memory.

    I’m so sorry about your phone! I would cry!! My biggest fear is losing my iPhone even though it’s happened before. That’s why I pay for the pricey insurance in case this happens to me again. Can it be fixed?

    I just rewatched The Office this summer. No matter how many times I watch it, the season 2 finale still KILLS me.

  • Carly August 28, 2012, 11:14 pm

    I read Gina’s recipe this morning and couldn’t wait to come home and make them! Agreed, they were delicious!

    isn’t it amazing how fast they turn from little baby to just regular baby? mine’s almost 2 and i swear he was just a baby yesterday! 🙁 time goes too fast!

  • Carin August 28, 2012, 11:30 pm

    US or UK version of The Office?

        Aw c’mon – Ricky Gervais trumps Steve Carell!

    Sweet Dreams to you and Baby Henry!

    What made you decide not to swaddle? I’ve been working on sleep with my 11.5 week old and I’m trying to figure out if I should stop swaddling her. She seems to both love it and hate it! 🙂

    • Abby August 29, 2012, 10:28 am

      I was wondering the same thing! (We swaddled until my son started rolling over.)

      • Marie August 29, 2012, 11:33 am

        ditto. My daughter is 4mo and we are still swaddling (she needs it!) I did order a Baby Merlin’s sleep suit (based on others recommendations), so when it gets here next wk, we’re going to start trying that. Right now we have 3 1hr daytime naps and nighttime is 6pm-ish to 6am-ish, so the transistion of swaddle to nothing quite frankly terrifies me!!

        • Lindsay Nagele August 29, 2012, 11:37 pm

          I was wondering that also. I have heard to stop swaddling when they start getting control over their hands that way they can start soothing themselves. My daughter is almost three months and just starting to put her hands in her mouth so I was thinking about trying the swaddle blanket that lets you leave their arms out.

          • CaitlinHTP August 30, 2012, 8:19 am

            Late response, sorry!

            We are concerned he’s going to roll so now we are swaddling him with arms out to help the transitio.

    Oh no! See I wouldn’t have handled the iPhone thing nearly as well as you did – hence why I don’t own one – well done, Caitlin:)!

  • Michelle @ Eat Move Balance August 29, 2012, 5:19 am

    No way your iPhone still works!?! That’s a miracle right there.

  • Dani@ Dani, redesigned August 29, 2012, 9:20 am

    That’s my biggest fear, is something happening to my very expensive iPhone. If something does happen, I absolutely don’t have the money to replace my phone even with insurance! And those zucchini sticks look amazing. Question: what is that rice dish on the side?

    • CaitlinHTP August 29, 2012, 10:39 am

      rice, lentils, and mixed veg

  • Carly August 29, 2012, 9:28 am

    Maybe look into a Lifeproof case for the next one (or to give this one a fig hting chance if it survived the first round)!

  • Kimberly @ Redefining Kimberly August 29, 2012, 10:51 am

    Sleeping Henry is too cute. I must try the Baked Zucchini Sticks soon. I think I might even be able to get my picky 2.5 year old to eat them.

  • MomHTP August 29, 2012, 11:07 am

    Can’t wait to hear how Henry did with the big boy crib and relaxed body position? Also, did the iPhone live on to talk again?

  • Casper August 29, 2012, 12:14 pm

    Do you like your Motorola monitor? We had a Summer Infant monitor for our son, but it broke after 2 years. We are now expecting twins and are searching for a new monitor. We use an audio monitor for my 2.5 year old, but we need a new video monitor for the twins. I loved the Summer Infant monitor until it broke and I discovered many people had the same issue.

    • CaitlinHTP August 29, 2012, 2:15 pm

      I like it a lot but we’ve only used it for two months!

  • Katie August 29, 2012, 1:28 pm

    Which baby monitor do you have and do you like it??
