Three Months

Life is busy with a sweet little three month old.  Her updates are almost the only things I get up here on this ol' blog.

I just never knew I could love a little baby this much! I may have said so before but I always thought having a little newborn might be a little boring.  But I could stare at this little one all day!
She found her hands this month and loves sticking them in her mouth.  She is just starting to figure out she can use them to reach the things she wants.

I don't really understand why people assume she's a boy.  She looks pretty girly to me, but because it happens I have been putting a lot more headbands on her lately.  This one is a little big, but I love it.  ;)

During tummy time Shirley is just starting to lean to one side.  She may be rolling not to far off from now!

She is just such a sweet baby!  She doesn't cry much unless she is tired or hungry and she is smiling all over the place now.  Although it's still hard to catch on camera.  This week she produced her first real belly laugh!  I was holding her on my lap and she was standing and kind of bouncing.  Once she bounced really hard and kind of fell and I started laughing pretty hard and then she started laughing really hard!  I thought I would die!

She kinda looks like she's conducting or something here.  She loves to kick and move her arms.  She's also "talking" a lot more.  I love how her little personality is shining through.

Oh little Shirley Lindi, we love you!

Yes, I've found it.  When you discover something amazing, don't you just want to tell everyone?  I mean that's how it should be with the gospel, right?  As most people know, it means "good news".

Side note: If you are reading this and don't know the good news about Jesus, (who He is and what He's done for us), PLEASE email me and ask! acsimwaka@gmail.com.

Anyway, today's good news I'm sharing with you is amazingly less important.  I mean the two can't even be compared.  But it's still pretty great.  It's just a recipe and it's my new favorite thing.

The Oatmeal Cookie Dough Smoothie!

Originally found here, I've made very tiny changes.  It just amazes me that something can taste so much like oatmeal cookie dough without any added sugar.

So without further ado, the recipe:

1 frozen banana
1/4 cup raw oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Throw it all in a blender and blend until smooth.  Like the original author says, it's best when you have to eat a smoothie with a spoon, right?  ;)

This smoothie is filling enough (and healthy enough) to stand in for lunch.
