Here are some more shots from the 4th of July weekend. Morgan enjoys chillin’ in his little inflatable crab that we purchased with gift cards from my mom’s coworkers. They were awesome to throw her a “grandmother’s shower” and we enjoyed shopping during her visit in June.
Morgan got so many cards and well wishes for his birthday! I love them all 🙂 I plan to save them so that he can see them when he’s a bit older. It still overwhelms me that he has been greeted with so much love by all of our family and friends.
We stumbled upon another successful baby recipe using leftovers from Morgan’s birthday dinner and I thought I would share:
Coconut Rice with Sweet Potatoes
- 1c Rice
- 1c coconut milk
- 1c water
- **Prepare rice according to package directions substituting 1 c coconut milk for 1c of the water called for.
- add 1/2c cooked sweet potato to 1/2 c prepared rice and chop in food processor or blender. Makes 2 portions for baby.
This is another high calorie dish to help bulk our little guy up. He was 17.5lbs at his well baby appointment yesterday–fully clothed. Looks like I have my work cut out for me.
