In a million years

In a million years, I never thought….

That I would be so excited to hear and feel my daughter fart, and wait in pure agony to open up her diaper and find poop.

That I would ask my mom for baking advice.

SONY DSCThat this would be my favorite Christmas gift.

That when I was up at 2 am, I would be feeding and rocking my baby.

That I would tear through a box from Similac and get excited to see a bubble-reducing bottle

That I would find spit-up on every article of clothing I’ve worn…and not care.

That I would be able to not only survive, but to function off a couple hours of sleep

That my favorite accessory would be a diaper bag

That I would ask for Babies R Us gift cards for Christmas, and then use them before any other gift card I received.

That cleaning would be my therapy, and my “me time”

That I would choose naps over anything else when I have some time to myself

In a million years, I never thought I would feel so much love for a person I have only known for a few weeks. My life has changed more than I would ever imagine, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. Not even a lifetime supply of frozen yogurt.

I fear that if I make one more pumpkin-based recipe, I might actually turn into pumpkin puree. I am willing to take my chances. These look delicious!

I hope you all had a fun and relaxing Thanksgiving! I know that I had a good time this holiday with my family. Even though I made a bunch of pies this Thanksgiving–pumpkin, Dutch apple, and cannoli pies; I still was in the mood to do some baking and for something pumpkin-flavoured. Call me crazy! Today I baked pumpkin doughnuts, and yes, of the gluten-free variety. I really have been bit by the gluten-free baking bug. 😀

If you wanted to, you can fry these cake-style doughnuts, but baking is easier and it tastes great!
