Hello, friends! How it is Monday already? That weekend flew by!
So, I don't know about you, but I had major fears when it came to bringing my baby home to a house with dogs. We have 2 of the world's most cuddly, gentle dogs...but they're still animals and animals can be unpredictable.
Mostly the little one, Ollie.
Ollie is WAY more territorial than Nova (our golden retriever), which is funny considering he's about 1/8th his size.
We definitely had our challenges with him when Kennedy was a newborn.
For instance, he felt the need to pee on pretty much anything that smelled like her, and probably would have peed directly on her if we ever left her alone with him for 3 seconds.
Thankfully, after a few scruffed necks and a LOT of expensive, organic baby detergent, those days are behind us...and these two could not be better friends.
Nova is still all, "I'm not sure about this creature in my house...", but Ollie and Kennedy have really taken to each other, which completely melts my heart.
Kennedy moo's at him every time he comes around, which is confusing, but still pretty stinking cute.
Ok, so on to these no-bake bars. I accidentally bought a FAMILY SIZE box of Organic Toasted O's a few weeks ago thinking that they were the honey nut version. You guys...never do this. They could not be more bland. So, in the effort to not waste a perfectly good box of cereal, I whipped up this batch of no-bake cereal bars. I'll be doing a full post on them on Foodie Friday, but they are really good and super easy!
And without further adieu, we experienced our first "Mama" yesterday and my heart is officially bursting with pride.
If you have a little, you know that this is your mommy crown-jewel moment.
Is she now calling everything, including her sweet potatoes and butternut squash "Mama!"...maybe...but hey. I'll take what I can get :)
Happy Monday, sweet friends! Let's be loving and compassionate, today and everyday!
