Step By Step - Ooh Baby

My little nine and a half month old is walking. She has been determined to make this happen, and about a week ago she started taking two or three steps at a time. The next day she was up to five or six steps at a time. By the third day she was ready to run, which really means that she falls a lot. I just can't believe it!

Amelia wanted her turn on camera. She is growing up so fast too!

The Breakfast Blahs

I'm in a breakfast funk. Each morning I wake up and have a hard time deciding what to eat. For the past few months I've been on an oatmeal with brown sugar kick, but that's over now. I tried a bagel and cream cheese for a week. I only have three cereals I enjoy eating - Frosted Mini Wheats, Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds, and Cheerios (with bananas if possible) - but I haven't been feeling any of those options either. I don't want toast and eggs are too much of a hassle. Plus I really only enjoy eating eggs if they are accompanied by bacon or sausage, which really isn't healthy to eat everyday. Pancakes or waffles with syrup (because eating them any other way isn't an option for me) is too sugary. Do you see my conundrum? I need something filling so I'm not super munchy an hour after breakfast, and I'd like something reasonably healthy. Maybe I'll try banans and yogurt. What are you eating for breakfast these days?
