This is totally unrelated, but I have to share this recipe that I recently discovered. It's a sweet potato salad and it is awesome. I found it when I was trying to figure out what I could make that would use up the sweet potato, celery, and onion in the fridge. I didn't think Jared would really like it, since he's not a big fan of sweet potatoes, celery, OR onions, but he actually requested that I make it again. Hence, we have had this twice in the past week. You gotta try it.

Remember how I mentioned that Libby slept 5 hours one night? Turns out it was just a fluke. Bummer. She's still quite the handful with hour-long (painful) nursing sessions, but I'm trying to enjoy the little things (like her cute little smiles as she's falling asleep and her adorable hands that like to grab fistfuls of my hair) and pretend like the pain doesn't exist. Speaking of nursing, I went to a La Leche League meeting yesterday, hoping I could get some help (wasn't very helpful, unfortunately) and Libby was by far the youngest baby there...like by a couple of years. All the other babies were at least 2 or 3 years old. I know that how long a woman nurses her child is a personal decision and I am not saying there needs to be an age limit, but it was just funny to me. When I asked a question related to nursing a newborn, the ladies were all like "can anyone remember that far back?"
