What not to eat

Before we got pregnant I knew I wanted to nurse if I could. There are of course the health benefits of breastmilk, the post-pregnancy weight loss, the money saved from not buying formula, its ready wherever you go, and no warming is required. But there are some downsides: the baby needs mommy every 2-3 hours (or a bottle of mommy milk), you start to feel like a milk machine when you pump and the reduced variety in the diet.

So far we know Cali does not like it when I eat:
- Onions
- Chocolate
- White pasta sauce
- Milk

What did you baby not like?

Why a blog?

Well, we thought it was about time. We have talked about it for a while as a way to stay connected with friends and family. We wanted to be able to post pictures and stories outside of Facebook or Flickr. However the challenges of an infant have made it hard to find the time to do anything, much less start a blog. But we are going to try. So here we go!
