It’s snowing here and well below freezing, brrr! I didn’t want to venture out on the roads so I decided to bake a cake since I was stuck at home with my little one! The house now smells fantastic and I got some quality time in with my baby girl. She is refusing naps lately and therefore she is very cranky. I may have found a solution to entertaining her – singing very loudly and dancing while she watches me bake! At a little over five months old, she is still EBF. She is starting to show some major signs that she is ready to try solids. I took the opportunity today to see what she would do with a peeled hunk of apple, and boy was the result adorable!

1/2 cup coconut sugar
