Chicken Pot Pie Soup
Soups are calling my name, babyyyy. They’re calling out to me saying, “Juli, I love you. Will you be mine?” And the answer is yes. Yes, soup, I will be yours forever and always. I have a feeling that there will be a lot of soups in the future of PaleOMG. Soups and salads. Two things I didn’t care about a few years ago. But now I’m all about it. I used to go to a soup and salad restaurant in college, but that definitely wasn’t for the salad…it was for the bread bowl. The glorious, buttery bread bowl. And broccoli cheddar soup. OMG…should I make broccoli cheddar soup? I’m going with yes on that one. That’s going to be a real good day. I’ll keep you posted.
I’m happy to say that most days are good days around here. Our little girl Avery is over 3 months old and FINALLY not colicky. It just finally disappeared for no reason. No diet change, no probiotic, no belly massage, and no gripe water made a difference. Just simply time. BUT HELL YES TO NOW! Those first 10 weeks were so sad, not being able to help her or fix the problem. But talk about a learning lesson. Is the lesson in this that I’ll never be able to fix my child’s problems? Like when a kid pushes her down on the playground. I may want to pick that child up by the shirt collar and tell them that I plan to haunt them in their dreams and laugh at them while they wet the bed. But alas, that’s frowned upon parent behavior. And I’d prefer Avery to not talk to people like that either. So I’ll have to sit back and let the situation pan out. Or will I? I know nothing about parenting.
What I do know is that I can’t wait for her to be at the stage of FOOD. Chewing, throwing, smashing, experiencing, and loving glorious, glorious food. It’s going to be so fun to take her on the adventure of what it’s like to eat and enjoy every little morsel of food, while also knowing where it’s coming from and how to cook it. I cannot wait for that phase. But for now, I’ll be simply feeding her myself until she gets interested in the real deal. Breastfeeding is great and all, but real food is waaaaay more fun. I can’t wait to make her this soup and tell her how I had to rush to snap the photos since she had just woken up from her nap and was trying to sit up while having no ability to do so. Can babies get a hernia from trying to sit up? Currently googling.
