First Time At The Park

Posted by Jenna | Tuesday, May 27, 2008

We had such a nice weekend. Scott didn't have to work at we were able to hang out with my family and just enjoy our time together. On Monday Scott did some work in the yard, but also made sure to spend some quality time with Kaelyn and I!! We had such a nice time together. It was so beautiful out that we decided to go to the park just down the road from our house. Kaelyn had never been to the park before, so it was a lot of fun being able to take her there for the first time. There were a lot of kids there and she enjoyed watching all of them as they played. We pushed her in one of those baby swings and also went down the slide with her a couple of times. She thought it was pretty neat! I'm looking forward to more nice days that we can all go to the park together again!!

One Great Mother's Day

Posted by Jenna | Sunday, May 11, 2008

Today was sure a special day!! It was my first "official" Mommy's Day, as last year I was only a few months pregnant at this time. My parents were up visiting for Kaelyn's dedication (I will update with pics tomorrow), which by the way was also a very special time and couldn't have happened on a better day!! It was great to get to spend time with them and spend Mother's Day with them too. Scott and my Dad made us lunch while we had the chance to relax a bit. It was GREAT!! I hope all Mom's out there had as terrific of a Mommy's Day as I did!! Happy Mother's Day!!

Great Baby Food Blender

Posted by Jenna | Saturday, May 10, 2008

When we were just beginning this baby food process...I searched high and low for reviews on "making your own baby food". I've written many times on the process I went through, as well as some of the things I found. One thing I have to mention the importance of having a good blender. We've only been doing solid foods for about a month now, but I've already come to realize the importance of our blender. Before we started, I searched and found one called the Tribest PB-200 Personal Blender. It's much like other products on the market, but the reviews I read were much better! I got it, and I'm SOO glad that I did. So far, it's done a wonderful job at pureeing and grinding up the food that I've made for Kaelyn. It's powerful and so easy to use. Something that's convenient is important for any mom who is busy during the day, and that's probably what I like most about this blender. As time goes on, we'll be making more and more foods in there, so I'm glad that I have a quality machine to use. I would recommend any mom try it if they are looking to make their own baby food like I do.
