Slowly getting back in to the swing of things. Chloe is now a week old and settling in to the family really well. Lily is besotted with her and I constantly hear “can I have a look at my sister?” She loves to just look at her and touch her head and so far has been really good with her. It took her a little while to realise that Chloe can’t do all of the things that she can do – “do we give her food? Does she have a little highchair? Can she play with my toys?” But now she has realised that she has to wait until Chloe is “bigger” to do some of those things.
This week’s meal plan is probably a bit more adventurous than what you’ll see in the coming weeks as Mr Monkey is still off work this week and will hopefully be doing most of the cooking, or looking after Chloe while I cook. The recipes have all come from magazines that we’ve picked up the last few weeks – Donna Hay, Super Food Ideas and Healthy Food Guide.
It’s nice not having to focus so much on the nutritional content of each meal any more – yay for no more Gestational Diabetes! But I am making sure to be a bit “better” than what I was before, although I’ve been craving pasta like crazy.
It’s actually my birthday today and we’re about to head down to my parents’ house for a special dinner. It will be Chloe’s first really long car trip so it will be interesting to see how she goes.
