This weekend- however- I decided to make my own. Much cheaper- and actually tastier in my opinion. The picture isn't fabulous but the cake was. I used my friend's fabulous recipe but adapted it enough that it's more my own. I'm including it at the end of the post :) It's the perfect Easter treat!
Our baby is broken. We've never had a fussy baby before and this little metta is kind of driving us crazy. I shouldn't complain because I'm assuming shes just a 'normal' baby- but our other two were abnormally easy. She likes to be held when she's awake. and she likes to be held in a certain way. she gets fussy in the evening and has to be walked around or bounced or taken outside. She's gassy and gets the hiccups every night. But she still does sleep quite a bit- and sleeps well- so I know that things could be WAAAAY worse.
