more quinoa and a cute baby.

For whatever reason- even though I really don't like newborns- I miss when my kids stop doing that itty bitty baby stretch where their arms go up and their bums do too.  Miss Metta does the arms still- but the tucked under feet and bum up are mostly gone.  Now she's an infant. Not a newborn. Hallelujah :)  and her 'crazy eyes' are far less common.

She'll give us cute happy eyes instead.

Does anybody know of anywhere to buy the teeny boys that I glue to her head?!  I don't think I could pull off making them.  I can't tie big bows and make them look nice- so my teeny ones would be a disaster.  Laney got them at some little store in Cottonwood, Utah, years ago- but I only have a few so I need more.

and I'm still trying lots of new recipes with quinoa.  this time: Hawaiian Haystacks!  Super easy and very tasty.  My trick is to always cook the quinoa with chicken stock and not just water.  Top it with tomatoes, onions, peppers, fresh pineapple, crunchy noodles, broccoli, and sauced chicken.  Voila. super good.

My sis says she thinks I should try bulgur wheat in all of my quinoa recipes.  I think I'll give it a try this week.

Metta is so darn cute! You can get some cute, pretty cheap bows at Look under the section "newborn bows". They also have some pretty cute headbands that Metta can wear as well. Unfortunately, Alice will have nothing to do with headbands and she doesn't have enough hair to put clips in. So for now, people will just mistake her for a boy!

I say don't glue any teeny boys to her head! That would just be sick and wrong.
