Nutrition Facts and New Meaning to the word “Bottle”

I’ve been a little MIA from the blog world lately, and for good reason, which you will see in a moment.  Since their has not been a lot of cooking going on in the Paws and Pours household, I’ll share a little nutrition information.

Being a RD, I’ve done a lot of teaching on reading nutrition labels.  So, I feel compelled to share the latest change in the nutrition label.  Please take a look…

Nutrition Facts

Item Size 5 lb 11 oz

These values are based on an average baby,

so ours may be even better!

Ava Shea, born 7/13/09






We have been blessed with a precious little girl through adoption.  (For those of you who are wondering how I drank all this wine the last 9 months.)  Both Scott and I were there in the delivery room and I was lucky enough to cut her umbilical cord.  It has been an amazing week and we are getting the hang of bathing, diaper changing and late night feeds.  We’ve even done a little cooking and wine drinking, but nothing noteworthy. 

So, our current “Pour” is Enfamil Premium.  Look for a review and rating from Ava coming soon!

We may need to change the name of the blog to Paws, Pours and Pacifiers!  What do you think?

Congrats! I am SO slow. I was reading the nutrition label forever trying to figure out what had changed and why you were using such silly examples. :-) Then I was trying to figure out how I missed you were pregnant and it turns out you adopted. Congrats! I was just thinking of you since I am spending some time in MN and am off to Alexis Bailley tomorrow to drink wine. That is such fabulous news. :-) I'm sure you'll be a fantastic mother.
