Finishing this dish with lime zest and juice brightens its rich flavors.

3 Weeks

Keegan has been eating frequently the past few days. I am thinking that he must be going through a growth spurt. I have been getting blocks of four and three hours of sleep as long as he eats atleast nine times before 11 pm. Oh and also as long as he gets to sleep with us. I would eventually like to get him to sleep on his own but right now I am just thrilled to be getting sleep. He seems to have grown quite a bit and is finally filling out his clothes. His face and head are more round and less squished from being born. There is slightly less screaming during diaper changes as long as I don't take too long.
I spent Valentine's Day with him and sent Tom snowboarding. It was warm and the conditions were so nice I really wanted him to go have fun. I asked him to not buy me any chocolate or candy since I don't need junk to eat. All I wanted was a card because let's face it, I already have the best gift ever. My parents came over yesterday evening, cooked me dinner and then we watched a movie.
Today Erika & Jay came to see Keegan and they brought yummy dinner. It was great to see them and catch up with Erika who I hadn't seen since I left the hospital. Jay hadn't seen Keegan at all. I could get used to this visit and bring food thing.

Here is my view when I am carrying Keegan in his Sn*ugli.
