Cup of coffee, anyone?
I spotted this Pumpkin Spice coffee at Trader Joeâ€™s and immediately tossed it into my cart. Itâ€™s no Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks (of course) but it tastes pretty darn delicious. Although anything in coffee form tastes good after the night that I hadâ€¦
Iâ€™m sleeping on a mattress on the floor of Henryâ€™s nursery for the time being. Although everyone has assured me not to worry about the face-in-the-mattress thing at his age, I am still a bit freaked out by it and wanted to be nearby. He rolled over to his tummy at 4 AM and I watched him adjust his head for almost an hour. He would put his little face into the mattress, wait a minute, realize he couldnâ€™t breathe very well, tilt his head, wait ten minutes, put his face down, and repeat the process all over again. Better than not moving his nogginâ€™ at all! And thank goodness I bought him a breathable bumper â€“ he kept banging up against the side of the crib when he flipped. Without the bumper, he wouldâ€™ve gotten his little leggies or arms trapped (which he did once before during a nap, and the screams were enough to get me in the car and to Babies R Us within the hour). Compound all of this with the fact that I had a blood draw on Friday and that impacted my milk supply. Iâ€™ve been extra pumping to try to build it back up. Basically, I slept like hell. But at least Henry is alive, and I have access to Pumpkin Spice coffee. Right?
Oh, baby. Am I a nervous nelly first-time mom or what?

Looks complicated but was pretty simple because the tofu and kale were leftovers.
**The story behind the SISTER mug: Many people have asked why I use a Sister mug, as I am an only child. Funny tale: Freshman year of college, I was hanging out with some friends at a frat house. One of my friendâ€™s friends gave me the mug as a gift after I remarked that I didnâ€™t have any mugs in my dorm room. I donâ€™t know why the frat boy had a Sister mug, but it was nice of him to give it to me. Never went out with him or saw him again. Ten years later, the rest is history. If I ever break this mug, I will be so sad.
