Days that remind me how much I
treasure being a (mostly) stay-at-home mom and feeling the joy in all the little wonderful things that happen. Days that make me run for my camera, pray that the batteries haven't died so that I can capture moments of absolute adorableness.
I'll share with you parts of one of my good days :)
This girl's got some serious moves! :p
|She's got the hands and the feet going!|
Then she does her whats-goin-on? dance move...
Now her Shakira-esque moves
Shakin her little tushy!
|Shake Shake Shake!|
|Getting up close to her feline audience.|
|My sister joins in on the dancing...|
Arissa decides Mr. Red Teddy needs to join too...
And my sister decides, her niece is insanely adorable! Look at this picture and tell me you don't agree =)
After her dance session, Arissa wanted snacks.
Now I am all about feeding her nutritious healthy whole foods, I'd rather she had a little of the good nutrient packed stuff than lots of the bad sugary processed stuff. So I don't give her cereals that have too much sugar. Froot Loops may seem like a not so bad snack, but really it isn't that great and I've never given Arissa any. But she spotted my sister's hidden stash, and was absolutely adamant about having some. Once she tried it, she demanded more :S Anyways, she hasn't had any since, but it was fun to watch her almost inhale the cereal I used to eat 2-3 times a day when I was pregnant with her (hey, I didn't know then what I know now!).
And then I made these, perfect yummy goodness! Vegan Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups!!!!! They were so good... Granted they are high high in calories...but you have to consider where the calories are coming from... good stuff! Organic dairy-free dark chocolate, organic coconut oil, vegan butter (only not so good ingredient), organic peanut butter (1 ingredient peanut butter), raw agave syrup (natural sweetener instead of sugar) and organic coconut milk. Yum and not processed junk like Reese cups (which I was once addicted to).
|Hehe...Look at her little fingers :)|
