I’ve recently realized that the bloggers I respect and admire the most often post actual photos of themselves. In the six years since my husband and I met, we have both steadily gained weight, and we’ve been inching out of the photos. :(

You know how Nora Ephron feels “bad about [her] neck?” Well, I feel bad about my double-chin. I am happy to report that I’ve lost all of the baby weight through breastfeeding. Yay!!! But now that I’m back to my pre-baby overweight self, I need to actually start trying to lose more.

Anyway, here I am with Sebastian, trying to read a New York Times article about “functional foods” (about which I’ll post more later). In the last photo I finally resorted to bouncing him on my knee on his tummy, my go-to position for eating as well.

In the end I didn’t get to finish the article. I’ll try to find it on-line so I can read it on my iPhone while breastfeeding or something.

He topped it with a pseudo-Hollandaise sauce made with mayo, lemon […]
