Better than anything I would ever eat in a restaurant!! Thank you husband!! Best bday dinner ever! He spent the whole afternoon in the kitchen while Sienna and I napped. I really appreciate how he puts so much love into his cooking. That’s probably why it tastes so good!

Meanwhile this baby had sweet potato and can you guess what else? She loves feeding herself these days. I was feeding her with a spoon and she just dunked her hand in the bowl and scooped up some sweet potato and broccoli, and fed herself! By the end of the night she had crusty sweet potato hair. And straight into the bath she went!
