I’m trying out something new where we do Bean Bytes on Tuesday. In my effort to get organized with the blog this year, my plan is to share new recipes Monday and Wednesday, spread the link love with Bean Bytes on Tuesday, revisit an old recipe of Friday and share my food prep on Sunday. We’ll see how it goes! I’m also scaling back a little on the amount of links I share in Bean Bytes. I really want it to stay a roundup of the very very best links and recipes I came across the week before….so I’m
I’m also scaling back a little on the amount of links I share in Bean Bytes. I really want it to stay a roundup of the very very best links and recipes I came across the week before….so I’m being a bit more selective than I have been lately. Hopefully this will help you find the list manageable and leave you feeling compelled to check out many of the links!

Boy did we have a WEEK last week. On Sunday, Squish spiked his first fever. And not just any fever – a 103.6 degree fever…In fact, after we used our forehead scan thermometer and it registered that high, hubby went and bought and ear thermometer so we could recheck it. Luckily, after a cool bath and some Tylenol, the fever came down and stayed down. However, he spent the rest of the week with a stuffy nose and just generally not feeling well.
Then, on Wednesday night, I started feeling not so great. I spent Thursday and Friday feeling pretty miserable and Squish had a ROUGH day on Friday. So rough, in fact, that I was literally counting down the minutes until I could put him to bed and then I crawled into bed myself at 8:30 on a Friday night. #noshame
Turns out, he’s getting ALL FOUR of his first molars AT THE SAME TIME. Poor kid.
In other news, hubby took the week after Christmas off and it was so nice having him home for the week!
We had a few more days of nice weather and a few chilly days where we had to bust out Squish’s marshmallow-man coat.
Daddy gave Squish his first haircut last weekend. He did a good job but it was still sad. Where’d my baby go?!
I liked my #25daysofjoy photo challenge so much that I decided to keep it going and am going to try to do a #photoaday for a year challenge. I’ll share roundups of my pics occasionally but if you want to follow along on Instagram, you can search the hashtag #squishscenes.
