I think there is a 6th sense roaming about our household. Each one of us in our own way knows that the 5th member of our family will soon be here, and well….
Each one of us is handling the situation differently.
My girls personalities have completely switched, but I’ve still managed to have one ‘out to get me’ child, and ‘one that really must love me’ child.
My husband has been teaching my girls how to punch, fight, kick, and play sports non stop. I think he is starting to feel how little power he really is going to have living in a house with 7 women.
7 because I count as 3 women total. That’s right. I’ve fully embraced the last stage of my pregnancy with more than enough hormones to the point where I cry over missing shoes and hugs from my littles.
And I cried at like every super bowl commercial.
We also just finished up the last of our ‘major’ kitchen projects before the baby comes! The minor things will come later, but my husband told me we have to pay our mortgage so…
After two weeks of being unable to use my kitchen, it felt nice to have a peaceful Sunday just enjoying my little family of 4 before we add one more!
We made lemonade, chicken +pasta, rolls, and chocolate. The recipes/links to recipes will be at the end of this post!
I feel like it’s a calm before the storm, because guess what, we are naming our baby Storm.
…But more like, we will be lucky if we change out of our pajamas and do productive things after she arrives. Sorry hubs. And sorry kids. And sorry kitchen floors. And sorry hair…You won’t be washed often.
Here are the recipes from our Sunday Dinner:
Strawberry Lemonade (Just water, no sparkling water)
Parmesan Italian Herb Rolls= Frozen Dough Rolls topped with melted coconut oil, grated Italian herbs, and freshly grated parmesan. Baked at 400 for 16 minutes in a greased cast iron skillet.
Salad= Not pictured, but it was just lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, apples, goat cheese, almonds, and dressing.
Brownies= Boxed w/ homemade frosting. (Melted chocolate chips, coconut oil, powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk)
