February is here!
Last weekend Aaron took Matea to the Father Daughter Ball that is held every year in Duluth. This was Matea's first year going and we were both pretty sure she'd have fun...but...she's 3, so you never know. Turns out she loved it! She told me MULTIPLE times, "next time you should come to the father daughter ball because it is SO much fun!" Aaron got her a corsage that she thought was really fun to have. Aaron had a lot of fun with her (and our dad friends) at the dance, so it was a win-win.
They are a cute couple. :-)
I'm 37 weeks today which puts me at full term. Ready to be DONE being pregnant. I'm really hoping that I have the baby THIS MONTH. We had a doctor appointment today and everything looks good. The baby had a growth check ultrasound and she is weighing approximately 5#6oz...if I go 3 more weeks she'll be about 7 1/2# according to my doctor. I am going to work really hard at enjoying these last few weeks as a family of 3 and not having a newborn to take care of! Here are a couple of pictures of me from today...it is a bit difficult to take pictures of yourself in the mirror. These are the best I could do. :-)
Aaron got me a KitchenAid Mixer for Christmas and I've been experimenting with some bread recipes. I tried out this breadstick recipe the other day and it turned out really good, so I made them again today and mixed in a bunch of extra herbs, garlic, and cheese. The house smells amazing and the breadsticks look pretty good!! I'm excited to eat them with the chicken chili I've got cooking in the crockpot.
Well I am off to work for the afternoon...I've got a few days of work ahead of me which is nice. Well, the paycheck is nice! It is always good for me to get out of the house for a while, too. I tend to hole myself inside in the winter. The extended forecast is looking promising that spring won't be TOO far away - hopefully the bitter cold is behind us for the rest of the winter!
