Lyra is so much fun these days. She starting WALKING about a week ago. At first it was just one step. And then it was three steps. And then TEN! It’s so exciting to see her learn to walk but at the same time I’m like, nooooo! I don’t want a walker. I want her to stay a baby forever. Or maybe just somebody that likes to sleep. She is such an early bird. I thought I liked to wake up early…
Lately, she has been grabbing on to everything, pulling things down, putting everything in her mouth and teetering on the edge of danger. It’s hilarious sometimes the position she gets her self into but other times, like when I’m trying to eat my lunch or drink a sip of coffee and she is lunging at me, it’s not so cute! I’m quickly realizing this is the new norm.
I want to eat things that are healthy so I can feel good about sharing food with her. I saw these Baked Sweet Potato Donuts and I knew they’d be just right! I substituted the whole wheat flour for oat flour and omitted the chocolate glaze. Lyra just eats them up!
She’s turning one in just a couple of weeks and I plan on making a bunch for her birthday picnic. This year has been a great one. I can’t wait to see her grow, grow, grow! And before I know it, she’ll be 30! Ha.
