A post NOT about Carden..

I know, what a surprise!

My family has a baking secret and I just discovered it and decided to share it with everyone else. This is for anyone looking to cut out some fat/calories when you're baking. Using applesauce for oil = gross. Instead, use soy lecithin! (the liquid kind) My grandma is apparently addicted to it because she has about a 40 year supply of it. Seriously. Two tablespoons plus 3/4 cup water instead of one cup of oil. It works, I tried it. I'm not sure about the fat in it but i think it's like 4 grams in a tablespoon or so. Now where you buy it I have no idea because all of my Grandma's bottles are about 30 years old. And that's the other thing-it doesn't ever go rancid like oil does. I used it in some pumpkin bars and they turned out great. I'm converted!

Baby Lingo according to Josh

Josh has developed his own vocabulary for all of the baby stuff. It makes me laugh so I had to share some that I can remember right now.

Stroller=Baby Cart (kind of like a shopping cart I guess?)
Car Seat=Baby Seat
Pack and Play=Port-a-Crib (like a port-a-potty?)

Finally, I will get some pictures posted from Christmas! Everything has been crazy over here-grandma's house is the family party house, so everyone was over here for the holidays and I feel like I'm still trying to recover! And we've been trying to get our house ready to rent (anyone interested?) so I've been a little busy. Anyway, enough with the boring speech, let's see some pictures of a cute baby with the biggest droopiest cheeks ever!

Here we are modeling our Christmas eve pajamas:

By the way, Carden had two blow-outs and about 15 spit-ups in his pj's before we finally got the picture. I just used wipes to clean it off and then finally yelled at Josh to get out of bed and get in the picture because Carden stunk so bad!

First time opening presents:

Carden got way more presents than I did, lucky duck!

We also had Carden's blessing the Sunday after Christmas. Josh said he was so nervous, but he did a great job! And Carden was an angel of course-he didn't make a sound the entire time, even though I think Josh was hoping he would scream.

My mom made the blessing outfit. Thanks Grammy!

Holy big blues!

Our families after the blessing

And then here's just a few more random ones, just cause he's that cute! I am loving the smiles and the laughs!
