napping issues...

ashton is NOT napping!

we're having napping issues.

does anyone have any recommendations for books or websites for napping? ashton is a great napper when he's in my arms, in the bouncer (as i bounce it with my foot), or lay right next to him in our bed. otherwise, he will not nap on his own/in his own bed. i don't know what to do. i find myself running around like crazy when david gets home. since it's the only time i'm really able to get anything done. it would be nice if ashton would start napping on his own so i am free to get things done around the house.

ashton is growing up way too fast. one day he was this cute little blob that did nothing but eat/poop/sleep. now he is blowing raspberries, laughing, talking, and playing with his toys. just thinking about him getting older makes me sick to my stomach. lol. yesterday afternoon i put him down on his play mat so i could make myself some lunch. this is how i left ashton...

how i left him

after about 10mins i could hear a, "thump thump" noise. curiosity got the best of me and found ashton like this...

how i found him

he was kicking the toy bar and hitting his feet on the floor. he thought it was the best thing ever. i just love how unsharp my crappy kit lens is (not). ugh. i am going to sell my85mm (i don't want to) but i need a better zoom lens.

i made some lactation cookies today (oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with brewers yeast and flaxseed meal).

get the recipe here.

i've been wanting to see if they work. they taste pretty good, so it shouldn't be too hard for me to eat a few a day. ha!

i also made fruit salad for the first time (ever). sad isn't it? but oh so good.

fruit salad

bananas, pink lady apples, peaches, grapes, and mandarin oranges with a few splashes of lemon juice.
