Funny Baby

LittleDude is enthralled with his penis! Every time the diaper comes off his hand goes down there to grab it! Sometimes it looks like he is going to hurt it but he doesn't seem phased so I don't worry. I hope this isn't a sign of what is to come!

Chicken Parmesan

Its no secret that I'm a fluffy mama. Everyone in my house loves to eat. I love to cook. So here is a recipe for what I made tonight. Chicken Parmesan. Although- this is a rough recipe. I rarely measure!

1 pound of chicken breast pounded thin
3/4 cup of flour
onion powder
garlic powder
oregano (or Italian seasoning)
28oz can of crushed tomatoes (mine had basil in it)
1 large onion
6 cloves of garlic
olive oil
Parmesan cheese
pasta of your choice (I like spaghetti or fettuccine)
mozzarella cheese


Heat up on medium heat about 1tbsp of butter and 1tbsp of olive oil in a deep skillet. You may need to add more after each batch of chicken depending on how big your pan is. After your chicken breast is pounded thin (I was feeling lazy and bought thin cut chicken cutlets) sprinkle both sides with the salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder then coat in flour. Cook the chicken until brown on each side. About 5 minutes a side.

Put the chicken aside. Dice the onions and garlic. Use the olive oil and butter that cooked with the chicken to sautee the onions and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the onions and garlic are transparent.

Add the crushed tomatoes, basil, and oregano to the onions and garlic. Heat until it starts to bubble. Add a liberal amount of Parmesan cheese. Cook for a couple more minutes. Add pieces of chicken back to the pan and top with mozzarella cheese and heat until cheese melts.

Serve over pasta!

6 Months Old!

Today was LittleDude's 6 month check-up. I can't believe how much he has grown! We've come a long way since all of the feeding issues. Here are all of his stat's that I've kept track of.

Birth(7/27/11): 7lbs 11oz
8/19- 7lbs 12oz and 21.3 inches
8/23- 7lbs 15oz
8/26- 8lbs 3.5oz
9/3- 8lbs 13 oz
9/8- 9lbs 9oz and a little over 22.5 inches long
9/30- 10lbs 13oz 23 inches
12/1- 13lbs 7oz and 27.2 inches long- That means he grew over 4 inches in 2 months. It shot him from 50th percentile for height to 97th! And he dropped from 25th percentile for weight to 20th but with 4 inches up I think that’s not too shabby!
2/2/- 16lbs 4.5oz and 28 inches

I really like his pediatrician. But all of the good stuff at the appointment happened before she even came in. He peed on the scale. He peed on me. Flirted with the nurse. Puked on my arm. Peed ALL OVER the exam table (it even leaked onto the floor). Yeah that was good times.
