1 Month Checkup & Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Today we headed off to the doctor for Brunson's one month check up. I can't believe he is already 5 weeks old. Before I know it, it's going to be time to head back to work and that might be one of the hardest things ever. So for now, I just have to soak in every moment. 
Now back to the appointment. Since I am a first time momma I had many questions, like is that rash on his head baby acne, should he be on a sleeping schedule, if he is wanting to eat all the time is he having a growth spurt? I absolutely love his doctor and he basically explained everything I am experiencing and everything I will experience in the coming month. His checkup went great and he is in the top percentiles for everything. He is currently weighing 10.1 lbs and 23 inches long. The only part of the appointment that we didn't care for was getting a shot. Let's just say we both shed a few tears but we made it through. This just gave us an excuse to have extra cuddle time tonight.

His face explains how he felt about getting a shot! 

Now to my stuffed sweet potatoes. I have shared these before but I thought I would share them again because they are so good. For the stuffing, I used my leftover slow cooker fiesta chicken but you can use anything you want. (recipe in my previous post) These are super easy to make! 

Start by preheating your oven to 400'. Then cook your sweet potato until you can stick a fork through it, let cool for a minute and then cut in half. Let cook for a little bit longer until the outside is crispy. Then scrape out the inside of the sweet potato. In mixing bowl, mix sweet potato, stuffing and whatever else you want. For tonight I'm adding bbq sauce for extra flavor. Then you will want to mix everything together and pour mixture into your sweet potato shells. Then top with shredded cheese. Let cook for about 20 more minutes. 
Let cool and enjoy!!

I was advised by my doctor to hold off on workouts for a couple more weeks so for now I am just walking around our neighborhood, which is always good to clear my head and get some fresh air. Starting next week I will be adding in some ab and arm workouts. I sure am ready to get in a good sweat.
