 so.  as soon as little miss started cereal and subsequently, solids...i knew i wanted to attempt to make her food.  i had gotten some tips from friends and family who have done it, and before i knew it...i had a freezer full of a variety of foods and i had fun doing it!

it's cheaper.
it's healthier.
it's easier than you think.
it's fun!
and you know exactly what's going in their belly.

what you need:
something you can use to steam.
something you can use to puree.
ice cube trays.

what you do:
chop it.
steam it.
puree it.
add water (if needed).
pour it.
freeze it.
bag it.
date it.

mixed veggies and ground turkey
black beans.
peas and butternut squash
i've also made: applesauce, carrots, mixed veggies + brown rice, sweet potatoes, avocado, bananas and peaches.

i microwave two cubes for 60 seconds and voila...a healthy "homemade" meal for your little one!


where she sleeps.

don't have a baby at 36 weeks or you won't finish her nursery until she's six months old.  there's no explanation other than pure procrastination.  and child rearing
ok, ok...i will say that we waited on a lot because we didn't know her gender until her birthday, but really, i just kept putting off the crafting time and time again.

here it is.  where she sleeps.

dresser from babies r us (changed hardware) | mirror from home goods, painted.
crib from target.com | swivel rocker from diapers.com
diy "d" | night stand and bookshelf ikea | vintage rocking horse from grandma
bedding from etsy shop | wall color - silver sage, from restoration hardware
and this is what took me 6 months to craft.  paper ball mobile thingy.
my fav piece in the room.  cut by my friend audrey with blue heeler designs {bhd*}
these are also a new addition.  ikea spice rack shelves turned book shelves.
no fancy bumper here.  i went for breathable.  sheets match the changing pad cover.
*people...it's for real...after MONTHS of telling her she needs to go viral...audrey will f.i.n.a.l.l.y. have a website in the new year.  blueheelerdesign.com
