Today is pretty monumental. We’re supposed to bring home our little bundle as soon as it’s “official”. (BIG FAT sigh)
This all seems very surreal to me. It’s been a five-and-a-half year wait and I almost don’t know what to do with myself. Did I get too used to waiting?
Will I remember how to do all this baby stuff? It’s been awhile and I’m (ahem) a little older than last time. Oh, and I happen to love sleeping…
All that off my chest, we’re VERY excited and appreciate your thoughts and prayers during all of this. I’ll keep you posted as I can.
I want to mention a wonderful dinner I tried yesterday. We’ve been running back and forth to the hospital so much, I’ve not been able to share a meal with my kids. I saw this wonderful recipe for Roasted Leek and Mushroom Pork Chops from Amber at The Tasty Alternative and really wanted to try it.
I threw it together at lunchtime yesterday and snarfed it down before leaving for the hospital to see the baby. This meal came together quickly, only took 20-30 minutes to cook, AND was relish.
Amber posted the recipe with a yummy-looking applesauce. I didn’t try it, (sorry Amber) but just peeled some organic Braeburn apples, threw them in a pot with some water and cooked them up. At the end, I sprinkled cinnamon and stirred.
These chops will definitely be one of our regulars for dinner.
