Ahhhh…..life with a newborn. So beautiful and such a nightmare at the same time. I think our Father in Heaven made little babies so adorable and smell so completely wonderful so we would have the patience needed to be up with them all night long.
How can I be upset with a face like this? In fact, knowing she is our last baby makes me want to enjoy every minute I’m up with her and keep her from ever growing up.
Now keep me in your prayers….my Mom and Dad are leaving on Monday. I don’t know how they think they can just leave me here with six children?!?!? I could have never survived these first few weeks without them. I am so blessed to have amazing parents who love my kids as much as I do!
Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies
These peanut butter oatmeal cookies are super chewy and soft! My kids love these in their school lunches.
- Yield: 4 dozen
In a large bowl, beat together the butter, shortening and peanut butter until smooth. Add the two sugars and mix well. Beat in one egg at a time until well blended.
Add the flour, soda, salt and oats. Mix until combined. Scoop onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes. Do not overbake! Allow to set on the cookie sheet for one minute before removing to cooling rack.

The cookies sound WONDERFUL, but that baby looks EVEN better! I can’t believe how ADORABLE she is! I just want to squeeze her. Maybe Grandma and Grandpa Jones will bring some squeezes for me 🙂
