Happy Wednesday from the smushiest sweetie face!
I'm weaning off exclusive pumping and it's been an emotional roller coaster. On top of that, Max is suffering from horrible eczema and we lost the nanny we thought we had. When it rains, it pours...
The good news is that after trying a million things and nothing working, we tried cortisone per the pediatrician and it dramatically helped him. We're also trying this new body wash (we mostly just do water) and only using Vaseline to moisturize him.
I'm still looking for the root cause and we've eliminated dairy to start, so I'll keep you posted. Although he's been scratchy, he's still been his smiley self and that's all this emotional mama can ask for.
Onto the grub!
My easy vegetable teriyaki stir fry is my mom's favorite blog recipe so far! I added corn and shrooms, no carrot, and used defrosted from frozen pineapple. We did brown rice in the instant pot.
Roasted sweet potatoes, fried eggs, and the last of an avocado with everything bagel spice for a random snack plate.
My epic vegan lasagna. Never disappoints with garlic bread and salad!
I can't get over this chocolate chip zucchini baked oatmeal for good snackin'.
Nectarine and tomato salad app with marinated feta, basil and mint from The Crest. The season's finest produce!
A delish chocolate croissant and coffee from Pistacia Vera for a sweet Saturday morning!
I forgot how amazing these chocolate peanut butter bars are. So fab with a chilly glass of milk.
A snack bowl of Greek yogurt, sweet potato mash, cinnamon, and walnuts.
Delish sweet potato black bean tacos were such a fun change of pace for din.
Paulie Gee's for Detroit-style pizza Friday. We look so forward to this!
Things I'm Loving Lately
- This llama bib and splash mat set are adorable. The bib covers his neck better than others and it's nice and thick.
- The second season of Truth Be Told is out and we're digging it! I love me a murder mystery.
- We transitioned Max out of his Merlin suit and now this sleep sack is the bomb! I like how thick it is and Max doesn't unzip it.
- Just ordered this harissa that I'm super excited to try it on all the things.
- I've been using this brow gel for years and it's just the best. Also this cc cream.
Keep your heads up, pals!
Missing these types of posts!

So glad you like them! I appreciate your patience, the one arm typing situation has made getting out content a lot tougher for me. I know readers appreciate these and I'll be sure to get one up here soon!
He's a little doll!
we also use a steroid cream for my son's eczema. only as needed in the affected areas. after a few days it clears right up! now we only use it sparingly.
We had to use a steroid cream with my son as well and are expecting to have to start it up again once the cold weather sets in. Nothing else worked. Luckily, he just turned two and there is supposedly a non-steroidal exzema ointment we can now try. His definitely seems to be cold/dry weather related rather than food. It can be so distressing as a parent and with my eating disorder history I was loathe to cut out any foods if it wasn't necessary.
I feel that so much, it all can be triggering!! Thank you for sharing.
