just photos of our sunday family time with a dairy-free breakfast oven baked almond pancake. i downloaded the green kitchen app and have enjoyed making a lot of dairy free as well as a few vegan recipes. i've also been trying to alter a few other recipes to make them dairy-free. this pancake was definitely a success. also, it's currently late at night, i'm laying on our bed next to a sleeping kramer and baby jude, and feel like this post is completely scatterbrained. really all i want to say is that sunday mornings are my favorite mornings. that is all. the end.

brotherly love

being a new big brother definitely has it's challenges ... not feeling like the baby anymore is probably the biggest. and then there is of course, not accidentally stepping on your little brother when you are excited, and putting up with those occasional meltdowns and screaming tantrums. according to kramer, it's also hard for an older brother, who is very well potty trained outside, to understand why his little brother feels the need to constantly poop and pee his pants ... in all seriousness though, kramer has really made the transition from an only "child", once getting all the attention, to sharing the attention with the newest addition to our family, jude, very well. although i would still not call them friends, kramer has become very protective over jude which is really very sweet. also, as pictured here, kramer wishes that jude's ergo baby carrier belonged to him. everyday, as soon as jude gets out, along comes kramer to take his place and hop on in. i'm excited to see how these two will continue to grow together and hope that they one day will be the best buds.

after picking up a new record (alt j) to listen to while cleaning, and going on an extra long hike, we stopped by the infamous burger bar, a tradition originally started by my mom and sisters. we were super grungy from hiking and our early morning cleaning, which made the casual environment of the burger bar, like eating in the back of our dirty car casual, perfect for our last labor day adventure. there were giggly babies, buffalo burgers, and jealous wives watching their husbands eat fresh raspberry shakes packed full of dairy which they couldn't have ... however, camden was nice enough to surprise me with a raspberry lemonade the size of my head. anyway, it was sort of an awesome day, and quite frankly the perfect salute to the unofficial last day of summer.
