*My pictures are way too big again. I will keep working on it!*
You have to love Florida summers! Everyday we have one or two thunderstorms roll through, which is not necessarily a bad thing till you have a little almost two year old who hates being cooped up inside all day. Today we were only able to play outside for 15 minutes before we had to pack up because the storm was getting too close. And tomorrow, like every Saturday, I had planned on taking Roman to the park since Malachi has to work and Saturdays are normally slow for us, but I looked at the weather for tomorrow and it looks like it is going to be pretty bad. Maybe even all day. It is always hard to find things for a two year old to do all day. I am going to have to get creative! I need to get some coloring books, crayons, and other fun indoor activities. But we have to wait till we aren't so poor! And it isn't the fact that we are poor...it is we have so many medical bills to pay off that all our extra money is going towards those! Maybe tomorrow will be a pajama movie day. I'm praying the weather man is wrong and tomorrow is a beautiful day! We shall see!
Able to get both babies in the same picture!
We have had a busy but wonderful week! Monday and Tuesday were actually kind of slow. I was pretty sick...little baby Adelai has been making me pretty sick lately. So Roman and I played outside, hopped in the pool, and made the most of our time at home. Tuesday I made this amazing dish that I found on Pinterest! I had to tweak it a little bit but it still turned out amazing!
Thank you pioneer woman!!!
Wednesday we had some friends from church over and it was so much fun! I made turkey and artichoke stuffed shells from Giada's "Everyday Pasta" cookbook. Yum!!! One of my favorite recipes! So delicious! Roman loved it too! And for dessert I made a white chocolate, raspberry cake. I have to say...it was the UGLIEST cake I have ever made in my life!
I don't know what went wrong! I have made it before and it was beautiful so I am going to blame it on my pregnant brain. Malachi even drew eyes on it since it was so hideous! At least it tastes delicious!
Thursday we drove out to Panama City Beach to visit my sister-in-law and her precious baby boy! My nephew, George, is so tiny! He is five and a half weeks old and so precious! I was holding him trying to remember when Roman was that small! It is so crazy how fast my little man has grown. What is even crazier is that in about 16 weeks I am going to have a newborn like that around again!
Today I was finally able to get to the gym this week to only feel defeated and leave early. I was able to lift weights but once I got on the treadmill my body told me it was time to quit. I was hoping to get in a really good work out but I guess Adelai had other plans! I am very proud of myself though...I have only gained 15 pounds so far this pregnancy! My goal is to only gain 35-40 pounds so wish me luck! With Roman I gained 60...yes...60 pounds! And sure I was able to lose it pretty fast, but I've heard it is harder to lose the baby weight with each pregnancy, plus I just want to be healthier, so hopefully I will be able to keep it up!
But I am going to wrap this up and go spend some quality time with my husband dearest!
Everyone have a wonderful weekend!!
