I Started Vlogging

Right now it only has to do with crocheting. But, if you're wanting to learn how to crochet, I definitely think you should check it out. I'll also be periodically posting videos here. I'm very excited about this. Here is the first video!!!

Breakfast Food // Egg In A Hole


To start you will need: 

hot sauce (if you like it)

Coat your pan in the fat of your choosing (I use coconut oil) and turn on the heat. Use medium heat as not too cook it too fast or burn your bread. Tear a hole in the center of your bread or use a cookie cutter if you have one and place the bread with the hole in it on the pan. Crack the egg and place it in the hole of the bread. Cook thoroughly on both sides.
For the avocado spread, mash a avocado and mix some garlic in with it. I only use half an avocado for one piece of toast and I store the rest for another morning.

Spread avocado spread on the toast, eat and enjoy!

My sweet chubs.

He likes being rocked to sleep, 
cuddling with his mama,
his rattle, and
being carried in the moby.

He likes being naked,
staying awake even if he is tired,
bath time, and
seeing his daddy.

He has so much energy. He will also miss nap time if he isn't rocked to sleep.
We went to church yesterday and he went to nursery at his nap time, but he stayed wide awake and content, as long as they were holding him. It was so cute, but not once I got him in the car.

He also loves to scream when he wakes up if he wakes up alone.

I love him so much, he is also so close to rolling over. He tries so hard.

Little Xander is currently going through a growth spurt... so he has been sleeping a lot. He also keeps trying to roll over. It's adorable.
