Happy weekend! This week actually flew by on my end… and that is exciting because my birthday is this Thursday! While part of me wishes I could celebrate the big 3-0 with a big bottle of expensive champagne, the other part of me knows that this healthy baby inside of me is the best birthday present I could ever wish for. It’s all sorts of cheesy and cliché, and I certainly never understood the emotions until I was pregnant, but all of it truly is a miracle. Every day now Matt and I talk about how much we can’t wait to start this new stage of life with our baby boy. There of course will be many challenges, but I can’t wait to be able to cuddle him as much as I want and I’m pretty sure Matt can’t wait to have a new playmate (I have a feeling this boy will be an early golfer). Of course I want him to stay put at least a few more weeks so that he is ready for the world, but the more he kicks and the more I sense that I’m getting to know his personality, the more excited I get to see his face. The gradual increase in discomfort may or may not be a part of that as well…
My productivity in the kitchen is definitely slowing down a bit. On days when I’m busy doing other things, it’s harder to muster the energy to bake and I’m really trying to listen to my body. The recipes I am making time for, though, are really turning out great. I can’t wait to share this one in a few weeks! It’s going to be an extra delicious fall.
