Look What I Cooked Up With a Baby in My Arms…

Proof that you can still go about life while carrying a baby in the Bjorn carrier: This lovely French Apple-Almond Tart that I made for my birthday dinner, yesterday. Colby (19 days old) fussed for a while then completely gave up and become mesmerized by the baking experience. Now if I can just figure out how to finish the edits of my second novel with a baby in my lap. Any pointers?

    You are an artist! It looks beautiful….and yummy too! Great work multi-tasking as always.

    I’m disgusted by your continued brilliance. 🙂

    You blow me away, woman! Happy birthday, happy baby, happy book success (I read the other post on the beautiful fan letter)… so thrilled for you!

    As to writing a novel with a baby in arms, I never quite managed. I foolishly took a MS to the hospital when I went into labour. As if!

    I’d rise an hour before the children in order to write: at the end of a year I had hundreds of pages, all on the subject of exhaustion.

    I felt that having children made it difficult to write, but that without them I had little to write about. Mothering is such a deep connection—to others, to the world.

    Yum. My favorite desserts are those that contain apples. Must be the product of a Northwest childhood. AMazing that you created something so beautiful with your baby strapped to your chest. Baby wearing is a lifesaver.
