It's a....


Daddy and Mommy are both extremely surprised! Paul and I both thought BOY all the way. Apparently, we were the only ones who thought boy! Poppy, Tada (Mom's grandmother name), Gigi, NaNa, Aunt Tonya, Aunt Rosie all thought Girl. We couldn't be more excited to welcome this baby girl into our family--she will not lack good loving, a fashionable wardrobe and great eyelashes from her daddy!

18 week Appointment

We were so eager to find out what we are having by the time this week rolled around! Lots of people have an opinion on whether or not they want to find out the sex of their child ahead of time. I'm guilty of not wanting to find out but since I trusted my husband's lead we went ahead with The Big Reveal! And now I just can't wait! I don’t think knowing ahead of time will make the birth any less exciting or meeting our baby less special. We welcome BLUE or PINK!

Hi everyone!

If you haven't heard by now...

Yes, the Comers are EXPANDING! We are thrilled to welcome this baby to our family and could not be happier that God chose us to be parents.

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:24

First Applesauce

While shopping over the weekend at one of my favorite stores {Marshalls} I found a baby food maker on clearance! I thought about London, my best friends little girl immediately and chose to make one of her favorite foods. And so we started with Applesauce!

The Verdict

London said there is absolutely no comparison in the flavor from this applesauce and the stuff from the jars.Well, that's what I heard her say! Now that I know how easy it is to make —I’m pretty sure I’ll always make homemade applesauce going forward.

4 pounds apples, peeled and cored
4 strips of lemon peel
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon or 1 cinnamon stick
1 cup water

Peel, core and chop your apples into large chunks, about 8 pieces per apple. Put all of the ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce it to a simmer and cover the pot. Cook for approximately 30 minutes, or until apples are quite soft. Fish out the lemon peels and whole cinnamon stick, if you used one, and let it cool. Puree in a food processor, blender or food mill and freeze in small portions.

Mix all ingredients together. Pour into greased muffin pan and bake at 400 for 15 - 20 minutes.
