My super wonderful mom-in-law has been staying with us since we got home from the hospital, and she has been cooking up a storm, including two batches of these delicious sweet and salty chocolate chip cookies. It’s Giada’s recipe with the addition of Maldon sea salt on top. When you’re sleep-deprived and starved for days on end, fresh-baked cookies make everything better.
Our little wonder, Jassy Rae, turned a week old this past Saturday! We’re still trying to finagle a firm sleeping/feeding schedule, which takes a bit of time, say all of my mommy friends. Hiz and I spend hours staring at her, in awe of this tiny, feisty creature who is ours forever.
Like most postpartum moms, I’m hyper emotional and will cry just looking at her. I also cried after the utilities serviceman left our home the other night. Not sure what that says about my mental state!
Jassy Rae hated her one-week photo shoot, despite having been freshly fed, bathed and changed.
Here she is sleeping, looking decidedly more content…
