ser·en·dip·i·ty/ˌserənˈdipitē/Noun: The occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way. During our 3 years of "trying" to start a family I would get notices that someone we know was blessed with a pregnancy, a "happy accident" which by the way is synonymous with my all time favorite word~SERENDIPITY. Now I know that there are no Happy Accidents, rather God's hand is on each and every one of us creating amazing opportunities each and every day.
Nicolette had her first taste of pasta the other night and boy did she love it! We had Trader Joe's Organic Brown Rice Pasta with Trader Joe's Organic Spaghetti Sauce with Mushrooms. (The TJ Brown Rice Pasta is a steal at $1.99 per lb, WAY less than you'd pay for the brown rice pasta at Whole Foods, Earth Fare or even Harris Teeter. Wheat is a genetically modified crop so the wheat we eat today is NOTHING like the wheat of our ancestors so I try to limit as much of it as possible from our family's diet...you can read more here. And the Organic Spaghetti Sauce is the only marinara sauce at Trader Joe's that I was able to find that does not include ANY soybean oil. I think it's creepy how soy is incorporated into SO many different foods and despite popular beliefs soy is NOT a health food...anything but and almost ALL soy is genetically modified so I want to keep as much of it out of Nicolette's body as possible. You can read more here).
Anyway, enough with the reading material...on with the cuteness!
Seiously...the foot up on the high chair tray cracks me up...every...single...meal.
