In Wednesday’s post, I mentioned that we occasionally make Bonnie her very own muffins. These muffins are super easy to make, they are good for her, and she loves them.
One of the wonderful things about baby-led weaning is that you don’t necessarily have to make special food specifically for your baby. You can literally feed them whatever you are eating. And that’s what we do most of the time, but there are certain times when convenient finger foods, like these muffins, really fit the bill.

Bonnie and I spent yesterday with my mom, who came into town late Wednesday night. The three of us went to GRS to see my RE, and several of the staff at the office. It’s so hard to believe it has been nearly a year and a half since I was a patient there. As we sat in the waiting room, waiting for my doctor to see us, it was so easy to remember the many times I was waiting for appointments there: ultrasounds, blood work, shots. It was easy to remember the times I arrived there feeling hopeful, and left there disappointed. It was easy to remember the times I arrived there in despair, and left filled with hope.
I remembered my last appointment there before having Bonnie, and hearing her heartbeat. Then I remembered my nine months of pregnancy, wondering if my baby would ever arrive.
And now I’m baking my baby muffins.
