Saturday marked the first day that Scarlett willingly, completely without me even asking, ate lettuce…!!!! HUGE DEAL. I’m still reeling over it. I’m so proud.

She just picked up a piece of plain romaine lettuce that I had put on her dinner plate (we were serving tostadas with chopped romaine) AND ate it. Then she ate another one! After that piece she went so far as to put the last piece in her mouth too!! Of course, immediately after swallowing she looked at me and announced, “I get dessert now Mommy.” Haha, but whatever incentive she had for doing it really doesn’t matter- because she DID it!! That’s all that I care about.

To top it all off Hunter officially started walking yesterday. He has been taking a step or two here and there for about a month now, but nothing serious. Well, yesterday he decided that today is the day. And so he just up and started walking across the room, walking around and around the recliner, walking back and forth to Dave and I, etc. He was a walkin’ fool.

I’m just CRAZY happy with all the wonderful things going down here.

Smart Substitutions:

  • Want Nutella fudge? Use hazelnut butter!
  • Brown rice syrup yields a ‘chewier‘ fudge and maple syrup yields a ‘meltier‘ fudge.
  • Use 1/2 cup coconut nectar in place of maple syrup for a SUPER healthy sweetener choice (my personal preference).
  • Add 2 tablespoons cacao nibs instead of 1/4 cup chocolate chips.
