No, that is not my belly...wish it were! Would you believe that both our webcam and our digital cam are both broken! At least we have the camcorder.
I can't believe it's almost time for sweet blessing #3 to be born! I am definitely ready, especially with Henry's birth still fresh in my mind (it was, afterall, only 10 months ago!). I have alternately been bitten by the nesting bug and the lazy bug this last few weeks...one day very productive, the next logging a lot of time on the couch. This is a combination of what I experienced with my previous two pregnancies, having been really ran down and tired with Brett and super-spry and productive with Henry. Right now I am just finishing before baby tasks such as getting the layette washed and ready, preparing and freezing meals for the first few weeks after Ryan's arrival and moving Henry in with big brother Brett, as they will now be sharing a bedroom. We are also turning our spare bedroom into a playroom/schoolroom.
I definitely suggest preparing freezer meals to any new mom! This is going to be a lifesaver for us. Here's what I have done so far, and what I have yet to accomplish:
Pizza Dough x2--finished
Italian Sausage, browned, ready for pizza--finished
Batch of Dinner Rolls--finished
Blueberry Coffee Cake--finished
Chicken Enchiladas x2--one down, one to go!
More Dinner Rolls
Cookie Dough--Snickerdoodle, Cinnamon Chip and Mint Chip (seasonal, ready for holiday)
Farmhouse Chicken (chicken and stuffing casserole)
Spaghetti/Pizza Sauce x4
Ground Beef, portioned into 1lb. dinner portions, cooked and ready to go
Pot Roast w/carrots, potatoes and onions
Italian Beef x1 for sandwiches
That's just what I have planned...I am sure I'll come up with more:)
As for my post-baby blogging plans, of course I will need ample time to rest. I'm also planning on nursing for the first time, so it will be a time of adjustment for me, as I really don't know what to expect. I plan on posting at least twice a week, and would love to have some guest posters, if any of you are interested! I will announce Ryan's birth, pictures and all, as soon as he is born!
If anyone would be interested in guest posting on my blog while I'm on break, leave a comment and let me know. You can also e-mail me at email@example.com. Hope to hear from you!
My poor blog has been sadly neglected. We are in the thick of life. One grown kid out on his own, two high schoolers, one middle schooler (whom I homeschoo...
