Grilled Eggplant and Pepperoni Parmesan Plus Baby Update

With little Enzo here, we are all about easy to make meals right now. I still have a few things left in the freezer as well but I’m trying to space those out. We were so blessed to have so many friends support us by bringing over meals. Also having family stay with us here and there has helped tremendously. …

Breastfeeding: Natural but Not Easy

I can’t believe it’s almost been one month since little Enzo was born. These last few weeks haven’t been easy to say the least. Enzo is a great baby (though we had some sleep issues in the beginning). We are starting to truly figure him out and he’s getting more interactive with us which is so fun. Our major struggle …

Biweekly Update: 38 Weeks

Well technically I’m almost 39 weeks at this point. I can’t believe my due date is eight days away! I know it’s just an estimated date and that truly he could come up to two weeks after but it’s been fun counting down the weeks until this day arrives. We’re planning on having a “due date” date night if baby …

Post-Baby Freezer Meals Update

Now less than 2 weeks away from our baby’s due date, I think I may be done stocking up the freezer. It’s pretty full and my energy is starting to slowly diminish. It’s been a battle just keeping up with regular cooking, let alone additional cooking. I feel pretty good about what we have stocked up so far and if …

What I Ate Today

I’m only 2ish weeks away from my due date and still have a pretty good appetite. It can be hard to eat larger meals because everything is so squished in there, so I’ve been trying to eat smaller meals more frequently if possible and if I’m hungry. I still listen to my body and eat when I’m hungry, focusing on as …

Biweekly Update: 36 Weeks

I’m technically at 37 weeks today as I write this but we’ll just say I’m 36 weeks for this post. I’ll take the extra time. 🙂 It’s so weird thinking that baby could really be here any day or he could take his sweet time and decide not to show for another 5 weeks. At least I know that if …

Grilled Curry Maple-Mustard Chicken

During the summer, Joe grills pretty much every night. I have been avoiding the oven as much as possible during our 100 degree days. Being pregnant doesn’t really help with the heat either! Luckily, Joe really likes grilling and has gotten a few staples nailed down. Chicken is one of them. This glaze is so tasty and a nice change …

Biweekly Update: 34 Weeks

Okay 6 weeks left really? This is absolutely nuts. Honestly, Thing 3 could arrive anywhere from 2 weeks before to 2 weeks after our due date so really we are more in a range of 4-8 weeks. I’m thinking 4 is way too short so hopefully he’ll hang on til the end! Big thing this week was finding a pediatrician. …

Preparing for a Natural Birth

Even before becoming pregnant I had always thought that I would want a natural birth. (Well, as natural as possible birthing in a hospital). Now that we are inching towards baby’s due date and have taken two birthing classes, I feel prepared and empowered to plan on a natural birth, meaning no drugs or epidural. The unknown of what labor …
