hodgepodge.

We bought a jogging stroller! It's the BabyTrend Expedition and it feels so much different pushing this stroller instead of the bulky travel system! It is a pretty inexpensive stroller ($119 at Babies-R-Us and we had $75 in gift cards+a 20% coupon...sweet! I tried to take G walking this morning, however, it was 45 degrees and super windy. We only got to the end of the driveway and turned around. Perhaps tomorrow?
BBC (baby bootcamp) started on Monday. The first step is to wean Grayson from his 2nd night feeding. We have started this & so far he is doing great! Basically we went from 4oz to 3oz & did that for 3 nights. Tonight we dwindle down to 2oz. Don't worry...big boy is definitely making up for those lost ounces during the day...kid LOVES to eat!
Publix had a recipe last week that was yummmmmy! I wanted to share their recipe for their marinated corn salad. The picture is below with their Taco Nacho Rice...also yummy and posted on their website. This salad would be so good with any mexican dish--and even my picky husband liked it!
Marinated Corn Salad
What ya need:
1 16oz. package of frozen corn
3-4 green onions thinly sliced
1 can on black beans
1 1/2 cups of diced tomatoes
1/2 mojo marinade
1 tbsp honey
Thaw the corn in a colander by running under cool water for a few minutes. Drain and place in medium mixing bowl. Slice green onions and add to corn. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and let sit for atleast 10 minutes so flavors can blend.
Happy Thursday!

I saw those recipes as well and am definitely looking forward to trying it out!

We are also attempting to drop the 2AM feeding...so far he makes it to 3:30 then I end up skipping the 5AM feeding. Ah - maybe one day there will be a full nights sleep! Good luck!

Its so nice to hear another method of eliminating the nighttime feeding...I have been waking Carsyn up most nights to feed her at 11:00 in hopes to make it to 5:00 or so but at 3:00 she is so hungry..
Woohoo for getting a jogging stroller :)
