We also did a very fast maternity photo shoot this weekend. I knew I wanted to take some pictures with Ehren on our nice camera as opposed to my iPhone but I knew I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars doing so. We just had my sister take some of us and then Ehren took the rest. I think they turned out pretty well considering my amniotic fluid was practically frozen!
I like to say that my life is like a musical being married to Ehren. He was a vocal performance major at KU and music is his passion. If you say a random word, it could trigger him to sing a song with that word in it. One time over Christmas break, my dad caught on to the fact that Ehren does this frequently. He decided to make a game out of it and we tried to see how long it would take to trigger him to sing 10 songs. I think we succeeded in less than 2 hours. He had no idea. Anyway, during childbirth class, the instructor talked about the "ring of fire" where the head kinda hangs out and, well, it burns. So of course this triggered Johnny Cash's "Burning Ring of Fire". I looked at him and said, "if you start singing that song when I'm pushing a kid out of my body I will slap you". Gotta love him.
Week in review:
I've continued to triple the amount of some of our week night meals. I made three pans of turkey enchiladas from "The Book" as my family calls it.
We call it "The Book" because we all (me, sister, mom, cousins, aunt) own it and as far as I know, my sister and I almost solely cook out of it. You can find it here. It's great because if my sister makes a recipe I've never made, she'll recommend it and vice versa. They are all supposed to be around 30 minutes and there is a huge variety - salads, soups, all meats, vegetarian, seafood, grilled, pasta, curries, sandwiches, pizza, etc.
It is so weird to make these meals knowing that we will eat them when we're parents to a tiny, loving, energy-sucking baby.
I don't know if Cozy was waiting to be fed or waiting for snowmageddon to start.
After my grandma's funeral, I took bereavement and I was able to be home for the huge snow storm we had - 14 inches! When Cozy runs around outside in the snow, it's sometimes hard to see him… until you see the brown spots floating around the yard.
He wanted to frolic along the fence with his GSP neighbor, Sam.
Ehren was so kind to sand the dresser drawers. You can always find Cozy around our latest DIY project… unless it involves a nail gun/air compressor.
While I painted, Cozy slept on the paint cloth using his toy as a pillow. Ugh, he melts my heart.
Looking good, don't you think? As in the drawers. I know Cozy always looks good.
I started working on the mirror for the nursery and I think this was the first time Cozy ever saw a mirror on the ground. He did the cutest little head tilts and even tried to lick himself in the mirror. So cute.
We also got to dog sit Kupper and of course Cozy loved the company.
For our Friday night date night, I made short rib lasagna. It was delicious!
Snow and DIY makes for a tired puppy.
Another week down, another week closer to D-Day.
