Happy ONE MONTH birthday, Porter!!  I’m working on a postpartum/baby update for you guys….but it’ll be a “better late than never” situation.
——-
As promised from a couple weeks ago, I just have to share with you all of the food(s) that I’ve been eating lately.

Namely DESSERT.

aka SUGAR.

aka “I’ve-got-the-nursing-sweet-tooth!!”

This guy will eat anywhere…

I would tell you that blaming this sweet tooth on nursing Porter is just a cover for eating more sugar (which I’ve always, always loved).  But there’s actually some evidence that I’m not alone in the raging beast – but nursing is not to blame! It’s SLEEP DEPRIVATION.  (Go check out the research!)  Since my little man wakes me about 4 times a night, I definitely fall into this category.

I say until Porter gives me more sleep, BRING ON THE SWEETSSmile  Here’s a look at the sweet (and some salty) that I’ve been eating these past four weeks.  To my credit, I’ve been eating more than my fair share of vegetables and salads too….

(….but only to counterbalance the sugar.)

QUESTION:  What’s your favorite SWEET food??  (and if you say, “I really just love fruit.  It’s so naturally sweet.  It’s all I ever wanted,” then we can’t be friends.
