Halfway there!

Sometimes I feel like this pregnancy is going very slowly and then sometimes I realize that in just 20 weeks, give or take, Ryan and I will be welcoming our little bundle of joy. There is so much to do in the coming 20 weeks. We’ve got to pick out baby clothes. We’ve got to plan and decorate a nursery. There are wipe warmers. Diaper Genies. Car seats. Changing tables. Swings. Cribs. Just thinking about Babies R us makes my head spin, but in a good way. It’s exciting really. But, first things first, we had our 20 week ultrasound the other day and learned that the little miracle that has just started to kick and punch me is a little baby…

BOY! And we couldn’t be happier. He was a little shy during the ultrasound but we eventually got a peak. Thank goodness because we were really anxious to know. It cuts the names that we have to think of by half after all. We have a couple that we like but are going to keep that quiet for now until we decide for sure. I just wanted to share the good news with you all. I’ll keep you posted as things progress and I’ll be back early next week with a new recipe. And believe me you don’t want to miss it. There is roasted garlic, cream cheese and frying involved.

Happy cooking!

    Maybe it’s just wishful thinking on my part, Des, but it looks as if your son is developing that cute tip of a nose that you have :-) Forgive me if I am overstepping my bounds but I suggest Rydes as a middle name for a first born son if it sounds melodious with your last name and choice of first ;-)

    I’ve been experimenting with roasted garlic lately so am very much looking forward to your upcoming roasted garlic flavored creation :-)
