SEVEN MONTHS OLD! Today my sweet Cohen is 7 months old.  He such a blessing and joy to my life.  He makes me smile and laugh, always at the perfect moment when I need it most.  He's so close to crawling he can move his way around a room but it's kind of inch worm affect.  He cruises and chases Dealey in his walker and he's starting to talk it up more and more.  We've got the beginnings of mama, baba and dada and he is just such the completing joy to our lives.  I can't wait for him to grow grow grow and watch him and D play together (and fight together) play soccer together, swim, go to movies, I'm just so excited.  Here's my sweet chunks 7 month pic...he grew a lot this month and I didn't even see it until I put the pictures together. Crazy cool!

I've had several friends request that I post my weekly menu so I'm going to try and do that as often as I can.  I start my diet next week so the next 6 weeks or so will be different from the norm but for this week I'm excited to have some of my favorites...if you want recipes let me know!

Turkey Chili Recipe with Beef Substituted (matt's request)
Chicken, Bacon & Goat Cheese Salad
Chicken Fried Steak with Mashed Potatoes & Corn (the best comfort food)
Grilled Steak, with Roasted Potatoes & Almond Green Beans
Spicy Orange Beef over Homemade Fried Rice

I'm really going to enjoy this last week of yummy foods, although not all completely unhealthy the key to enjoying some of my favorites, very small portions!
