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 …

Biweekly Update: 32 Weeks

Less than eight weeks to go until due date! Quick update on how Thing 3 and I are doing. Big thing of the week:  I think we found a daycare that will take our little boy part-time! We have been doing lots of research and it’s been hard to find a decent center that is close to our house and my …

Grilled Smoked Paprika Potatoes

Since the weather has slowly but steadily been creeping up, Joe and I have been grilling as much as possible to avoid turning the oven on. And when I say Joe and I, I really mean Joe since I never touch the grill… My Mom got us this Weber grill basket maybe 4 years ago and we use it almost …

Biweekly Update: 30 Weeks

We are officially in the homestretch! I’ve started a countdown on our chalkboard at home and it’s really surreal to see the number of weeks left slowly creep down. We have almost exactly 2 months to go as I write this and it just seems impossible! How far along: 30 weeks Maternity clothes: Either wearing maternity clothes or stretching out my regular …

Post-Baby Freezer Meals

Now that I’ve hit the 30 week mark (what??!!) I’ve gotten serious about planning out some meals I can prep and put in the freezer for when Thing 3 makes his debut. My goal is to make 2-3 meals each week, label with the date and instructions, and freeze. I feel like this will make a huge difference for us …
