Hello Baby!

Well, there's no doubt about it, I'm definitely showing!

I am feeling good (although overcome by a constant need to nap) and have been enjoying feeling the baby girl move. According to my baby book, she is just about 11 inches long and weighs a little over a pound. I am up 11 pounds and feel like it is all in my belly this time.

And for those of you love smoothies like I do, I will share my new favorite recipe for one. We'll call it the "Ella Special."

  • 6 frozen strawberries
  • 1 banana
  • 2 TB peanut butter
  • 1/2 up skim milk
  • 6 ice cubes
Blend until nice and smooth. As Rachael Ray would annoyingly say, "YUM-O!"

(Hey, at least my current craving is strawberry smoothies. It's better than Skittles!)

Oh, and a note for all of you who hate the word verification function for commenting, I am turning it off for a while. OK MOM???!!!! Start commenting!! We miss you!

P.s. tonight Darin and I went to La Salsa to sit outside and enjoy a drink w/o kids etc etc etc, and at the table next to us was a cute little girl named Ella. SO CUTE Plus her mother spoke in an English accent so I must insist you ALWAYS say your daughters name in a heavy English accent!!! Just kidding. Love the name though. Ella and Ellie, you can't go wrong!
