These yummy little delights are based off of my lemon glazed raspberry zucchini loaf and are equally as tasty! If you enjoyed that recipe then you will love this one too :) I have recently discovered using zucchini in my baking and am in love with it's subtlety!
It adds instant nutrition but without adding any weird flavor that you might suspect zucchini would - the perfect ingredient to sneak some greens into your kid's diet, or even just yours! So without further ado, the recipe that contains fruits, vegetables and whole grains and you'd never know it...

Here is our little cutie pie at 2 months! I know he is gonna kill me someday for dressing him up in all these silly hats but he just looks so darn cute in them that I can't help it.
From last month to this month Lawson has grown so much and in so many different ways. He is now 10 pounds and 22" and has become more vocal and alert with every day. In fact, this morning Prescott and I woke up to a smiley giggling baby, which was a first!
I am so thankful to see our little guy happy after such a rough past couple of days... Lawson got his first shots this week and I can only describe that as a horrible experience! He cried like I've never heard him cry before so naturally, like any first time mother, I started crying like a baby too, no pun intended. Now I know why people say seeing your child in pain is the worst because it truly is the WORST.
He then continued to cry (and I mean inconsolable screaming tears) throughout the afternoon and into the evening with a 101 degree fever, which our pediatrician warned us that he might be fussy and get a temperature, but I think that was putting it a bit more mildly than accurately.
Also, this month Lawson had visits from all his grandparents, celebrated his grandpa's birthday, went bowling for the first time, experienced his first walk in daddy's baby bjorn, oh and decorated his first cake, lol. Lots of excitement and much more to come next month, I'm sure. Can't wait to see what our little man has in store for us :)

I still can't believe we did this but we decided to take Lawson on a little road trip to Big Bear Lake and to my surprise, he was a true champ the entire time! I couldn't believe how good he did. Not only did he sleep the whole way, but he slept a majority of the time we were at the cabin and on the boat, yes I took our 1 1/2 month old baby on a pontoon ride. Thankfully we had a good captain :)
Trust me, this is not the norm for little Lawson! We are thinking maybe the altitude made him so sleepy because he normally doesn't sleep much during the day besides maybe a couple 20-60 minute naps, if we're lucky. However, he does tend to sleep during the night in between feedings, which is great :)
All in all, it was an awesome trip filled with much needed rest and relaxation. Here are a few photos from it. Uncle Marshall and "Auntie" Amber along with a couple other friends came too, which made even more fun!
