Making Baby Food Butternut Squash!

Yesterday I made Butternut squash for my little boy.

It was my first time making this.. ever.. ha!

I first washed it under cold water and dried it.
 Then cut the ends off...
 Then in half... It's like a pumpkin, ha!
 Scoop out seeds and peel it. My littler peeler was not that great so I ended up using a knife to peel it.
 I chopped it up and put it in my steam pot. (you can use your regular stove stop steamer )
 Let it cool then blend! I added about 1oz -2oz water. Add more or less depending on how thick or thin you want your puree.
 I then filled up my little containers and placed some in the fridge and some in the freezer. I read that in the fridge pre-made baby food is good for 2-3 days.
 Kristian loved it! I gave it to him for lunch and dinner yesterday and will do the same today!

We have tried, Avocado, Banana, Carrots, and Butternut squash!

A couple weeks ago I entered in this giveaway from Stephanie over at

 And I won it!!!! whooooooo!
 Gerber graduates products! I'm familiar with these because my niece loved so many of these goodies. Look at all these goodies!!! All the items are for 9 months plus, so we need to wait a little bit before we try them. But we are excited.
 Happy boy!

Kris will be 6 months Sunday! As of this week he is 15lbs! :)

The Winner is!!!! #5

Emster is our WINNER!!!!!!


Whoohooo! Your plea was heard! ahah! (I will FB you soon with details)

I looked everywhere for another one of these starbucks tumblers to give another away, but they are sold out everywhere I went!. BUT CHAPTERS has it's own version of one in different colors so next time I'm there I'll pick one up!

Today I went for a jog, it felt great, minus the humid weather we are having today.

Food Journal Update:
I have been eating out a lot this week. However I am watching my portions. 2 times we went to a burger joint, I actually resisted getting a burger! And just shared fries with the husband. A couple times this week I was able to stay within a 1200 calories in my day it was really hard tho, So really 1500 is my goal.

With all this diet talk, I'm still going out for a dinner date tonight. I have 1000 calories left for today ahah! The joy of sleeping in and skipping BF. :)

Just one of those days...

So I’m having one of those days, where the glass is half empty. Yesterday I was so tired and so cranky and today is not that much better. Today is a grump post, so feel free to skip it :p

My mood… Is Blahh! That is how I feel inside and out! Could it be that I’m cutting so many calories and my body is mad that it’s hungry. HUH light bulb just went off here, it could be because I am a little hungry and therefore irritable. Well either way I was on a downer and my head was going to explode with the whole woulda/shoulda/coulda still wanna do type stuff. Really this could drive a person crazy. I have that overwhelming feeling of boredom again and it seems it is only during the week, the repetitive day in and day out, Blahh! Everything in me is going against it.

Today as I tweeted my grumpiness I started thinking of things I enjoy... and I know I love blogging!

So I decided today to make things a little more fun. I love blogging and I love reading my blogger friends blogs so I decided I will start doing giveaways. I never did them before so I will peek at other blogs to see how it’s done. I'm excited for a giveaway!

So keep up with my blog posts one of them will have a giveaway very soon :)

**Diet update - 1pm and only 600 calories left for my day. Ugh oh.
