1 more month till ONE for Wyatt!

Wyatt is 11 months old!

This is my prayer, every single night. Lord, please give me all the strength to be the Mom they need.

So, of course it makes me sad to think that Wyatt will officially be a baby for just 1 more month. But so much about him is a big boy already. Wyatt is moving out of the nursery classroom at daycare next week along with 3 of his little buddies. He has 4 teeth and 2 more on the bottom coming in now. Wyatt got his first haircut in January and is a little walker. He has been practicing for a while but can now get from room to room and even change direction when walking. (His shoes trip him up though.) I am not ready for this!

Wyatt prefers to spend most of his waking moments in his high chair and eats every type of food. He even tried cow’s milk is a sippy cup this week! My favorite thing to give him is thawed, frozen mixed vegetables (peas, green beans, carrots, corn). He loves them so much, it probably feels good on his gums and Mama loves that he gets his veggie fix. He also loves eggs, his puffs, yogurt, fruit, meat and cheese.

Wyatt can wave hi and bye (sometimes), gives open mouth kisses, and laughs when we play peek a boo. I have been trying to teach him the sign for ‘all done’ and he just laughs at me when I do it. He loves to cuddle with Daddy the best and does all he can to keep up with his big brothers. Wyatt loves his dog, Remi, and I even caught him laying his head on him the other night. Also, I think it is going to be hard to break this boy of his pacifier one day soon.

Savoring every last minute of this last month.

Recipe- Healthy Creamy Broccoli Soup

Modified from a favorite Kraft recipe, this Soup is Mom and Baby approved!

I haven’t posted a recipe here in a while but I do love sharing my quick and easy, family approved, step by step recipes on my Instastories. Today we are all home with all schools closed due to the freezing temps. It was -10 this morning!! So we needed something warm and pleasing for the whole family. Bonus- Wyatt is 10 months old and he absolutely loved it. This soup is high in Vitamin A and C and has 5 veggies, low in fat and is filling!

Pro Tip- I set some of the cooked broccoli aside and don’t blend it to give the soup a bit of chunky-ness to it and so that it isn’t completely like baby food.

You can also make this soup with asparagus, cauliflower or add a protein to it.

Also, with my new Ninja Bullet that I got for Christmas from my parents, I bought this book. It has a similar recipe in it. I love making smoothies and can’t wait to try out some more recipes!
