It’s summer! For real now. I already feel like it’s flying by. There is still so much to get done before baby comes.
At least we are making progress. Yesterday we bought a new pack ‘n’ play (it sure is strange to see that in our bedroom!). We ordered new monitors. I bought a going home outfit for the baby. Now most of the “baby stuff” is set. It’s all the other stuff that needs to get done.
This week will be another very busy one with an OB appointment, chiro appointment, speech therapy appointment and meeting a new pediatrician. I also need to figure out when to grocery shop. Hopefully we can find time for fun things too.
From now until baby arrives I’m hoping to prepare one meal and one snack to put away in the freezer. Last night I started soaking flour for a batch of brownies. I would have loved to make a few batches at once, but we are almost out of honey. So I’ll probably be making more of these later. After I get more honey I also need to make a few batches of graham crackers this week.
Produce is starting to come in. We’ve started freezing strawberries. But there is plenty more to come.
I’ve still been keeping up with my goal of eating seafood at least two times per week. I’m trying to grow another smart kiddo 🙂
I was finally able to meet with my doctor last week to go over thyroid labs. It was a great relief to hear that she thinks my levels are right where they should be. So I won’t worry about thyroid again until after baby is born.
My body is definitely starting to slow down. But I’m still doing my best to keep us all well fed and get our freezer stocked with nourishing foods. Here is what’s on the menu this week. What are you eating?
