Boy Cannot Live on Peanut Butter and Jelly ALONE!

I haven't talked about Matty in awhile, so I thought I'd update you all on him. He's almost..... gulp.... FOUR. Well, in 4 months, but that's almost, right? Anyway- He's almost 4, and he thinks he's 25. He likes to drink my coffee, when I'm not looking, and he uses some of the biggest words. He's adorable, to say the least.

His asthma is doing well. We have him "under control," for the first time since his first attack in October of 2009! I am so thankful for that! We don't have to use the rescue inhaler much at all. He has his hard times, but for the most part, he is breathing much better! He is a fighter, that's for sure!

But.... our battle.... our constant battle.... FOOD!

The child still is a tiny little thing. He is still wearing 24 month pants, 24 month shirts (some 2T), and he LIVES on peanut butter and jelly and "chocolate milk" (aka, his protein shakes). Almost 4, and his 14 month old sister outweighs him! eek!

So- I come to ask you, dear readers... I need some kid friendly recipes that a child who LOVES peanut butter and jelly (and coffee) will eat!

I mean, just look at this sweet face!

14 Months

That's my little beauty.

She's 14 months old (and 2 days).

She's everything I imagined... and more!

She's a firecracker.

She's sassy.

She loves her "Matt-Matt" and "Amum" (Adam)

She loves to read books. (She looks at the books and mumbles. It's adorable!)

She can be incredibly sweet.

She is a mommy's girl.

She's given us 14 months of love and laughter.

I can't wait to experience more! :)

Right Now...

I am counting down the days until graduation....

77 Days, 14 hours, 59 minutes.....

I am sitting in a coffee shop, studying...

It's 10:30 at night....

I'm listening to Counting Crows on the Musak....

It's fabulous.

I'm looking at a bag of Chipotle Chips and Guac. It's tasty.

I'm thinking about how fast time flies. It really does.

Remembering what life was like ten years ago.

Ten years ago.... 
I got married.
I started my first year of college (3 majors ago).
I worked outside of the home.
I lived in the world's smallest apartment.
We were P O O R. We lived on about $500 a month.
We didn't even know of Adam, Matty, or Chloe.

Right now....

I am blessed. So blessed. 

77 Days, 14 hours, 56 minutes......
