Baked Salmon

Here is a yummy fish recipe that I made in the crockpot.

*Salmon fillet
*1 stick of butter
*1 garlic clove
*1/4 c. ketchup
*4 tsp. soy sauce
*2 tsp. mustard
*dash of Worcestershire sauce
*dash of pepper
*1 tbs. lemon juice

Place fillet on foil. Mix ingredients together and heat, but do NOT boil. Pour mixture over salmon and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. (I used the crockpot on high for 40 minutes.)

My birthday

Yesterday was my 27th birthday. I can't believe I'm that old already. In the morning I made myself a chocolate cake (I know, not very "appropriate", but I really wanted to make one, and get rid of that cake box that was in my cupboard). Sometime late in the afternoon flowers and a balloon arrived from my dear husband, and William just couldn't keep his mitts off the balloon! We went out to Red Lobster for dinner, and dined on shrimp and more shrimp! Yum! William was permitted to eat a piece of Zwieback, since I really don't like him eating those in the house - too messy! I'm sure I'll get over that really soon, but until we get a dust buster, I really don't like hauling out the vacuum every time he tries to eat those things! Anyway, I had a great day! HERE are a few more pictures.

10 Month Weight Check

So his doctor wanted to see him at 10 months to make sure he was gaining weight alright...I was a little nervous, but this time he gained 13 oz in 29 days!!! Yeah! The doctor said he looked really healthy, and his next visit will be at 1 year. (I can't believe I'm saying that!) He's still not very big at all for his age (normally kids are 19-20 pounds at 10 mo.) but his height and head are all right on track. worries! :-)

Swimming "Lesson"

Yesterday William and I went to our first parent/child swimming lesson at Valencia Glen pool. It's taught through the Red Cross, so I thought we'd be learning some good stuff...or at least I'd learn how to help him in the water. Nope. It was more a free-for-all...there was a "teacher" but she really didn't do much. Oh well...I guess for some kids who don't have a pool this is good. But since we've got a pool...William did have fun watching the other kids. I was very glad to get out, as the water was cold! We go again tomorrow. Hopefully yesterday was just "intro" day, and we do a little more in the upcoming lessons.
