The Short, Vol. 4
- Lauren took her four month vaccines like a champ and she’s tipping the scales at 10 pounds, 12 ounces. #girlpower. Also, that exam table paper has the perfect amount of crinkle, making it irresistible to babies.
- I got my first library card in fifteen years. Ten minutes after we arrived, I heard the telltale squirt of baby poop, and we left shortly after. I’m excited to teach Lauren how to use the library, and Brian can’t wait to teach her how to snowboard. They say opposites attract…
- I cooked thee most perfect bacon in the world (note: I like it extra crispy). Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with nonstick foil. Arrange bacon so that the slices are NOT touching (this is where my technique differs from Brian’s). Bake for 25-30 minutes, but start checking at 20 minutes. I spread one pound of bacon across two baking sheets, and the middle rack bakes faster than the upper rack.
