Teddy – 9 Months

Teddy is 9 Month Olds

I can’t believe it.

Teddy is 9 months old.  I have no idea how time has flown by so quickly.

As we enter a new year, it seems appropriate that I reflect on one of 2015’s biggest blessings.

To our sweet son, Theodore James,

Your dad and I love you oh so much.  We seriously look at each other every night and try to comprehend how we could love you any more than the day before. 

People ask us the biggest surprise of becoming a parent.  And I think that’s it.  I had no idea the amount of love I could carry for another person.  I love my friends.  I love my parents.  I LOVE your dad.  But I LOOOOVVVVVEEEE you.  So much.  I’m pretty sure I Beverly Goldberg love you.

Every day you grow.  Every day we find new things to discover and love about you.  I swear, the last couple of days I see a little boy bursting through your little baby body.

For example – you just want to go.  Anywhere.  Everywhere.

Army Crawl

You can get to and from by crawling but you would prefer to run (if you could).  You love standing up and walking with the help from mom or dad.  We’ve slowly started baby proofing the house, but we have a long way to go in a short period of time – if we go by your timeline.

Standing Tall

Everyone tells us you look like a Gerber Baby.  And if I’m honest, I would have to agree.  Baby, you are quite the charmer – always full of smiles and laughter.  You love to jibber jabber and have started some fun squeals that are always great to hear.


The best part of my day is coming up with new ways to make you smile.  Whether its the “faraway – up close” game, singing your “Teddy” theme song your dad made up, talking in funny voices or dancing around like no one’s watching – your laughter is my new favorite sound. [Continue reading…]

Greek Bruschetta

Greek Bruschetta

I’ve got a great appetizer for you today.

This delicious recipe comes from my fabulous mother-law.  It reminds me of the grilled bruschetta I made here but less messy. This recipe is super easy, has great color and every bite is packed with flavor.

I promise it will be a crowd pleaser at your next summer BBQ.

Greek Bruschetta

Greek Bruschetta 

  • 1 1/2 C. Cherry Tomatoes (halved)
  • 2 Scallions (diced)
  • 2 Tbsp. Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1/4 C. Olive Oil
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 4 oz. Cream Cheese (room temperature)
  • 1/2 pkg. Feta Cheese
  • French Baguette

Mix tomatoes and diced scallions in bowl with red wine vinegar and olive oil with a pinch of salt. Let them macerate for 1/2 hour – 2 hours (depending on how much time you have).

Cut baguette into 1/4 slices and brush with olive oil.  Broil in oven until edges are nice and brown.

Mix soften cream cheese and feta until combined.  Don’t over mix.  Spread cheese on top of bread and spoon top with tomato mixture.
