Sitting in the Sassy Seat

Evie and I ran a few errands this morning. Carl has been dying for Evie to get a little bouncy seat that you hang in the doorway. Hudson had one when Carl was at Pawleys and seemed to really like it. I got one called the Sassy Seat - perfect for Evie! She likes it but does not love it which surprises me since she kicks so much. We get comments constantly about how much she kicks from strangers. Comments like she's really going to take off one day, or she's not going to walk she will run etc. So, we thought she'd love the thing. We will keep trying but I kept the receipt just in case.
Evie took a really long nap this afternoon. It was in two parts because she had another crying spell in the middle of her nap. She got caught in the crib slats and could not get her hands out. Mommy to the rescue and she went back to sleep for another 1.5 hours. She is doing better with her sleeping now that she has ocean waves playing all night and I am really loading her up with babyfood. She can put it away so maybe she is a big eater like her Mama!
Lindsay gave me a new recipe to try and let me tell you it is delicious! Not to mention easy. I was able to prepare it with Evie perched on my hip.
Crockpot Roast:
3 pound chuck roast
1 envelope of Italian dressing mix
1 envelope of Ranch dressing mix
1 envelope of Au Jous
Mix seasonings in a bowl. Rub all over meat. Put in crockpot. Put in 1 cup of water. Cook on low for 8 hours. About 1 hour before serving, add 1 or 2 cups of water. You can add vegetables and serve over rice.


  1. Your baby is so beautiful. Oh yes, I am all about what food is coming next.

  2. Thanks for commenting on my blog :o) Your little Evie is precious!! Maybe she'll warm up to the jumper. Aubrey wasn't wild about her's at first either, but she ended up LOVING it after a couple of weeks :o)


Thank you for your comment!
