Now I get it...

After sleeping practically all afternoon, I thought I would try to pull together dinner for when David gets home. I have no idea when that will be since I have totally misplaced my cell phone, but I figured it wouldn't be long now and I could always heat it back up if he is later than dinner...

I put Elliott in the carrier sling thing that I made and went about making a fabulous baked macaroni and cheese recipe I found on this blog that I read pretty regularly. On step two, he started grunting and letting me know that the sling that I worked so hard to make...well, totally not going to cut it. By step three, he was awake and squirming and the roux for the cheese sauce was getting all splashy and dangerous, so I took him out and put him in the bouncy chair he has tolerated all of once. About twelve seconds later he was crying and hungry and MOMMA STOP STIRRING AND FEED ME OR YOU WILL BE SORRY. So I turned off the cheese sauce and sat down to nurse him and five minutes later he starts coughing and unlatches and is generally uninterested in the whole feeding thing. I tried to resume dinner and he started up again, louder than before. I managed to get the macaroni in the oven and am still waiting on David to get home, but can't help but think that Frozen Chicken Nuggets sound like an increasingly appetizing option.

Hey Nicki...that story is so funny, it always happens that way, just as you get started with about anything that is when Elliott will decide - "uh I don't think so mom!" I also checked out that Pioneer Woman webiste blog...and I love it...I will probably visit that site often. So how did the mac and cheese turn out, it looked yummy in her photos!

The macaroni and cheese turned out pretty good, although I like it a little bit creamier than it turned out. I'll admit- I use velveeta instead of "real" cheese normally and I really like it that way! It was fun to try something new though...

How dare you try to cook something! Bradley didnt like to be put down anywhere for a little while as well but he eventually got over it. Everyone has always told me not to worry about it since they are used to being held for 9 months all of the time so you cant expect them to be ok with being alone right away. That advice saved me a lot of my sanity.
