I knew that life would change profoundly after having a baby. It’s obvious, isn’t it? Suddenly life comes to a screeching halt in many ways. This tiny helpless human is all at once captivating and so dependent. It is amazing what hormones do to you! I was never one who swooned over babies. I didn’t dislike them, but I wouldn’t get all squishy over them either. Well, the second I saw this little guy, I knew he would win me over.

There are so many positives about parenthood-and motherhood in particular. (I am sure that Karl would say the same about fatherhood!) Yes, certain aspects are challenging, but for me, the positives FAR out weigh anything that might be considered a drawback. The amazing amounts of cuddles. The sweet coos and smiles. The squishy baby lips.

Those are all great. One other unexpected plus of motherhood for me has been my ability to breastfeed my little guy. I count myself as very fortunate for being one of the women who has not experienced difficulty. I wish and desire that for every mother who wants to breastfeed!

Besides the amazing nutrition that breastfeeding provides for my baby, another added bonus is that is burns SO MANY calories. I feel like I suddenly have the metabolism of a teenage boy. (Or at least what I presume it must feel like!) Hunger is constantly either right around the corner or already in full swing.

This is really great, but I find myself taking advantage of it…convincing myself that I can get away with chowing down on all of the ice cream, brownies, cookies, and gelato that I can get my hands on. Ha. NOT TRUE. But I may have been a bit over indulgent lately…

In an effort to slow down my developing sweet tooth and also beat the summer heat, I decided to pull this snack out of my recipe hat. I used to make this dip, or a variety of it, often during the summers while we were living in Japan. It’s salty and delicious paired with watery and refreshing cucumbers. It’s good with all kinds of veggies but cucumbers just happen to be a favorite of mine.
