a Sleep Training Update

Zucchini (Part 2: Testing)

I’m terrible (okay, not really but sort of).  I didn’t take pictures or a video the first time Abigail tasted Zucchini. **GASP!!!**  Now that that’s off my chest, I can say the following – Abigail was not the biggest fan of zucchini until I paired...

Sweet Potatoes (Part 2: Testing)

Thanks to some recommendations I received last week after subjecting Abigail to a few days of Green Bean hell, I tackled a sweet (and well received) treat: Sweet Potatoes. The recipe is simple and the only ingredient you need is a bag of Sweet Potatoes...
