Half of a Year Old Already. Time Is Flying!!

I can't believe that our little girl is already over half a year old. The time is going by so fast! Will it please slow down!? (I do look forward to her talking to us though, but we are in no hurry!!)

I haven't written a blog post in a while because I am lazy, and a slacker. I know, I know. Sad!!

So much has happened in six months that I don't know where to begin. I have watched our little girl go from being a fragile little baby that can barely control her head, to a big girl who is now sitting up, eating solid foods, reaching for things, and becoming her own little personality. I have a feeling she is going to be one funny / sweet little girl.

I can NOT begin to explain the amount of Love I have for this little girl. Each day the Love only grows stronger. I just wish each day would slow down just a little!

I'll try to report back soon!

Quick Dinner Recipe - Tebow Family Pizza Pie

The wife shared a recipe the other night that I made for dinner. I recommend this quick and easy recipe for any moms and dads that are in a hurry for a quick meal. I would think you can add any ingredients to make it your own. We stuck to the recipe here except we used pre-made spaghetti sauce. Here is the Tebow Pizza Pie. Next time I plan to make a breakfast version of this. Om nom nom.

We stole the recipe from http://www.tasteofhome.com/

Tebow Pizza Pie Recipe


Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground turkey or beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 envelope Italian-style spaghetti sauce mix
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

In a large skillet, cook and stir beef and pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the sauce mix, tomato paste and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 7-10 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. 
 
Separate biscuits; press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-in. deep-dish pie plate to form a crust. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese; fill with meat mixture.

Sprinkle mozzarella cheese and remaining Parmesan cheese over top. 

Bake at 400° for 15-18 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.  

Yield: 6 servings.

Day Of Delivery - The Follow Up

funny labor pregnancy epidural
(my wife actually took labor like a champ! I love you hun)



A few weeks back I wrote a blog post called "Day of Delivery". (Found here: Day Of Delivery)
I had many questions concerning that day. Well, this is my follow up blog post to those questions now that I have the answers from my personal experience.

The first question I had asked was:

1. What will I see?

The answer is: A miracle happen before your eyes. Seriously, watching an actual live birth instead of on YouTube was amazing. The birth is more amazing when its your own child being delivered. If there is a person alive that does not believe in God, watch a birth. You may think twice afterward.  Sure, there were things I saw that were gooey and bloody, but nothing that made me feel light headed or to the point of fainting. I feel that if I can handle watching a birth, any man can handle it. This is coming from someone with high anxiety!

2. What will I hear?

The answer is: Honestly not much. You may hear your wife groaning in pain at times from the contractions, but if your wife is anything like mine this will be minimal. My wife took her first labor like a champ! Seriously. She made it look like a piece of cake. There was maybe one time where she got a little feisty with me asking her a question, but she apologized right away. The only other sounds I heard was the crying from our precious baby girl as she entered into this world.

3. What do I say or do?

The answer is: If your situation is like mine, then you will not do much honestly. Sure I talked to my wife and tried to comfort her here and there, but I felt as if it was just better if I stayed quiet. When it was time for the baby to come, I did help hold a leg and help tell my wife she was doing a good job with pushing. When all is said and done, I was cutting the cord from our new baby girl. At that point, I knew that I had survived watching the whole birth. I felt accomplished.
