Welcome 3rd Trimester!

Hello 3rd trimester, and hello lots more eating!  My appetite has definitely exceeded that of my hyper-metabolic 6'2" husband.  At our last check up, doctor states that I'm "in perfect health" and the baby is doing great too!  Now we start going to the doctor every other week rather than once a month.  We have painted the nursery a neutral gray color, and we continue to read, attend classes, and prepare for welcoming the "Wittle Wooter" into the world.  Here's the most recent bump picture - I can't believe I'm going to get (lots) bigger than this!

I left the t-shirt on just for you Carrie ;)

Grandma Brown is Getting Excited

Though I haven't even my own child, I can imagine that being a grandparent must be even more fun than being a parent.  You get to witness all the goodness and joy without as much responsibility, discipline, and "bad-guy" as the parents.  By the looks of it, Grandma Brown is getting pretty excited for Baby Wooster to make his/her appearance in November!

Saved the best for last - remember those beautiful wedding bags that she made each of my bridesmaids?  Baby Wooster has one too, but of course baby style.  Very precious.  

I hear that Grandma Wooster has some surprises of her own in store for us too ;)

From the Kitchen...

Good cooking this week.  I got a new pizza crust recipe (I'm always searching for a keeper), and this one is a good one!  Crispy crust, relatively easy to make, and delicious!  Andrew made his into a perfect circle and mine turned out like blobs. 


I also recently made Vegetarian Lettuce Wraps from the Pioneer Woman's blog.  They were yummy and what really put them over the top was an easy-peasy peanut sauce I stirred up to go on top (I can't remember where I got the recipe but it is similar to this one).
