The Sweetest Year

My son makes every day sweeter! (poop explosions excluded)

Preapproved backyard

on February 22, 2012

First things first, my baby woke only ONCE last night! I put him to bed at 6. He cried to eat at 1AM, then again at… 7! Can I go run a marathon? I feel like I could with all this extra energy! Clignement d'œil

Breakfast was sublime, my last pancake with maple syrup, a banana, bit of applesauce and cottage cheese. Even though I poured maybe a table spoon of maple syrup in my bowl, the bottom half of the pancake was soaked in syrup and it was divine!


I swear there’s a small pancake under there!

I went to the bank to check for a mortgage and they pre-approved me!!!!! (Excuse the “!”, but it deserves a few extras!) I’m renting right now and was not ready to buy before I had the baby. Many reasons, but one of them was that I didn’t feel I had enough for a down payment. Turns out I do! However, I’ll wait until I go back to work in November of this year to buy a house because I only have 55% of my salary right now being on maternity leave. I think it’s the responsible thing to do. But OMG YOU GUYS! Buying in a few months? Such a dream come true! Plus, those extra few months will allowed for even more savings to help with all the upfront costs. Double Yeah!

Baby was a champ at the bank. I had his stroller next to me and he played with a toy I brought. He started to get a tiny bit fuzzy 15 minutes in, so I sat him on my lap. Worked like a charm. I think he was trying to charm the bank employee because he knows there could be a backyard in his future. Sourire

Post-bank lunch was great. Onions, tofu, mushrooms and romaine lettuce n the pan, a grilled cheese and an egg.


Baby had a tablespoon a carrots.


When I say ‘had’, I mean saying no to it with his lips closed. Oh well, he had a big dinner so that’s ok!

Oh, I just found baby like this.


I guess it’s time for breakfast! Have a good day everyone!
