Kathlyn's Kaviar ;-)

I've been eating this for lunch every day this week.  
It's a great, one handed meal for new, nursing mama's, it's good for you, it's easy to make, and it's delish!
Here's the recipe:
1 can corn
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can black eyed peas
1/4 cup cilantro
chopped tomatoes
1 green bell pepper
6oz Italian dressing

Mix together, add Italian dressing and top with grilled chicken if you'd like!
You could add some spice in there too, but again, I'm nursing and I have a particular eater on my hands here!!! 

We are still trying to figure out little Miss and all her habits. 
 How she likes to sleep, eat, play, and what her cries are all about (and why in the world does she want to play in the middle of the night...doesn't she know I'm sleeping???).
  Big brother has been beyond helpful and doting with Lorelei.  I couldn't have asked for him to treat her any better...he loves her so much and his sweet, caring heart is always worried about why she's crying and what she's doing. 

 However, listening to his mama and all this whining he does could most certainly use some work!!! 

 I'm sleep deprived but not kiss deprived.  I think I brushed my teeth today, but then again, maybe that was yesterday.  
My best friends right now are my Moby wrap and the Swaddle Me blankets that I never used with Caleb because he hated them.  

This little girl is so different from her brother, it's not even funny!

We are making it one day at a time.  I'm getting use to my new life as a mommy of two.  Twice the love and twice the fun...and guess what? Tomorrow is Friday which means I am one day closer to having my husband home to help me for a couple of days.  He is a rock star dad...except I'm still waiting for his milk to come in so he can help me out in the middle of the night ;-)
  Luckily, Lorelei took her first bottle this week, so just maybe I will get some middle of the night help this weekend...just maybe.

Enjoy it all Kathlyn. It goes by so fast! Even the sleepless nights and crazy days. Then you miss it, you really do. Take it all in while you can it's such a sweet time!

You really can see the brotherly love in the pictures that have the two of them. He really adores her. It is so precious. I worry so much about Connor's adjustment when baby comes because he is such a momma's boy. He has a hard enough time with sharing mom with his siters. I pray he is a great big broter just like Caleb.
