Aubree's 1 Now!

I can't believe it has been over a year since my precious baby was born and had surgery. I feel like just yesterday I was complaining about her feet in my ribs and how I was sooo afraid my water would break in bed. Which by the way did just that lol. I feel like this year has been such a blur. Her biological father still isn't in the picture and we have actually agreed that I am going to pursue a lawyer to get the ball rolling on his rights being permanently removed forever. I like that so that when the time comes and I get married I won't have to go to court to have his rights removed so that my husband could adopt and we can change her name.

She has been making so much progress in her actions and her understanding and speaking of words. She holds the phone up to her ear and says hey now. She thinks it's funny when you fake laugh and will copy you. She stands up and sits down without holding onto anything and will stand for a good while. I really hope she starts walking soon. Her grandad got her one of those little tikes coupe cars for her birthday and she absolutely loves it. She climbs in and shuts the door and then will proceed in the exact same moment to climb out and repeat it all over again.

This summer is going to be so much fun with her she loves the pool. We got to have it out the other day. Who'd imagine it'd be that nice out in April to have the pool out?!

Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream

This is seriously THE best ice cream I have ever had! And it's not even real ice cream! I would've given some to Aubree but I never remembered about it until she was asleep.

Anyways, freeze a couple bananas. It only takes about 10 minutes for them to freeze depending on your freezer. When they are frozen out them into a food processor or blender and blend until it is smooth and creamy. Then add however much peanut butter you want to. I put about 1 1/2 tbsp. I also added my body fortress chocolate peanut butter protein powder in it to make it a great post workout snack. You blend it all together. Put it in a freezer safe container and you are done! :)

Super Healthy Banana Pancakes YUM!

These were so easy to make which is perfect for me as Aubree never sits still. She is always on the move!

All they are is 1 banana and 2 eggs. Mash the banana then mix it with the egg. I added cinnamon sugar to Aubree's and my body fortress chocolate peanut butter protein powder to mine. You just cook them on the skillet for a few minutes, making sure to turn them over.

And there is it! A super easy and healthy breakfast. It 's the perfect way to sneak in a fruit serving into a kid's meal. Especially if it is hard to get them to eat them in the first place :)
