My darling little boy is 8 weeks old now. I cannot believe that so much time has passed. It felt like a really long time when I waited for his arrival in those last few weeks and suddenly, he is all of 2 months old.
Those of you who are friends with me on FB have been bombarded with constant updates and pictures but I realized that I haven’t had the chance to update my blog for over a month.
We’ve had visits from friends and family. We’ve ventured out as a little family to the farmer’s market. We’ve taken some fairly long drives to the East side. We’ve changed hundreds of diapers. We’ve shared as many tickles, cuddles and kisses, maybe even more. We’ve had many firsts with Sagan and are anticipating so many more wonderful times.
He is such a sweet kid. Always a trooper. He does have a little bit of a temper but it only shows up when he does not get to his food fast enough. Other than that, we have no complaints. He is low maintenance.
As for me, I’m tired. Not as tired as those early weeks. I’d like to think that I’m getting the hang of this but it’s just as likely that the little one is starting to sleep more hours. In other news, I am slowly finding my way back to the kitchen. All thanks to Nigella Kitchen episodes! While nursing, I turned to my trusty new iPad and caught all the Nigella Kitchen episodes on YouTube. So far, I’ve made her Spanish Chicken recipe as well as the Pantry Paella. The Spanish Chicken was delicious but the paella recipe needed a little bit more liquid (half a cup or so) for the rice to cook thoroughly. Also, cooking it with the lid on helped. Tonight, I’m planning to make her Chicken and Forty Cloves (of garlic).
I wanted to leave you with a couple of interesting links I’ve encountered lately:
- MOMA has online courses if you are interested in pursuing art classes.
- Cool montessori iPad apps for learning
- A new addition to the Heritage Food Series by Epigram Books – Madam Krishnan’s South Indian Recipes. I would love to get my hands on this and Robin’s Eurasian Recipes as well. A good friend of mine got me the first two in the series.
