I am so glad I posted about getting more sleep yesterday.. I think Ava took the hint and broke her record last night with 8 1/2 hours straight.. Wow I was so impressed. I must admit that I was a little nervous and checked on her to make sure she was okay but I think she’s turning into a sleeper and I have zero complaints about that.
This morning I made some Pumpkin Oats. I had a leftover can of pumpkin in the fridge that I didn’t want to waste so I whipped up these delicious oats. It look literally 2 minutes!
Talk about simple, there’s only a handful of ingredients and you can definitely substitute different kinds of nut butters or milk to change the flavor. I am going to try out some protein oats later this week!!
Quick & Easy Pumpkin Oats
1 tablespoon pumpkin
1 teaspoon almond butter (or peanut butter)
1/3 cup vanilla almond milk (or skim milk)
1/3 cup of oats
a shake of cinnamon spice and a shake of pumpkin pie spice
Directions: Mix all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl, microwave for 1 minute and 15 seconds (I like my oats thicker) Add a drizzle of honey, some nuts, or even some yogurt, and enjoy!
if you like your oats a little thinner you can add more milk.
You can also top with some fruit!
Have a great day!

Yay for more sleep!!! We finally are too. We transitioned Allston to the crib in his nursery and he’s sleeping better than ever. He’ll go 12 hours with just 1 or 2 wake ups. I’m a new woman and just in time for me going back to work next week!
