I've been slowly but surely working on getting meals made for post-baby. I dug through my cookbooks, flipped through my recipe binder, and sorted through my Pinterest board. I came out with a smokin' list of things to make. My big order of chicken from Zaycon Foods came 3 weeks ago so I had a nice amount of chicken to play around with...try forty pounds of nice. Needless to say, our freezer is stocked.
Bring on the baby!!
Speaking of recipe binder. Whew! Thanks to my cooking frenzy, I realized exactly how many recipes I had in mine that I hardly ever used. Which led me to think exactly how few times I really reach for it due to the previous realization. So, I figured it was time for yet, another re-do. She is now in total renovation mode. Hopes of returning soon.
Miss Savannah had a tragedy this week. She now fully understands what HOT means and that the stove is quite capable of being that. We stood in the kitchen after 2 hours of crying, with her little hand under the cold water. She will let you know several times through out the day not to touch the stove. Lesson learned.
My In-laws made a visit last week Short, but very sweet. The days were busy and full of fun. Afternoon ice cream treats for everyone. Lot's of rest for me of course. Then back to reality once they pulled out the drive to head home. Military life does have it's shortcomings and the whole "no family around" thing is the one I hate the most.
My girls are silly right now. Goofy and hilariously silly. They are doing all they can to keep my mind off of my discomfort and impatience. We're keeping it simple for now with a lot of books and castle building. Coloring and easy crafts. Playing outside and walking for Moma. Fingers crossed we'll have a baby the next day or two. Wouldn't that be a blessing?!?
