I have really been slowing down in these last days of pregnancy. I am cooking fast, easy meals that do not require much thought, energy, and time. My computer is also broken, so I am using my husband’s computer when he is not working. I am hoping my computer can be fixed! On the mommy front, my toddler has started walking! Yay! I have been extra busy running after him. I am really happy that he is walking now because both Jude and I were both starting to get frustrated. The poor kid just did not want to fall. I am sure he will be a pro by the end of this week. The other good news is that Jude is starting to grasp the concept of cleaning up. I thought it would be months before this occurred to him. The first thing he did was try and help me fold the laundry and put in on the pile I was working on- normally, he just gleefully throws everything on the floor that I have just folded and put in piles to put away. Later that day, I asked him to please put back all of the placemats he had just taken out of the basket. I really thought I was just practicing my mommy voice, but he scampered back and started putting the placemats back in the basket. Unbelievable. I guess you never know when something is just going to click!
ITALIAN SAUSAGE SPAGHETTI
I made Italian Sausage Spaghetti tonight with Tinkyada pasta. My husband and I really enjoy pasta now. He never really enjoyed it before because he always felt sick and too full after eating pasta too- and he doesn’t have a gluten intolerance! I browned some gluten-free Italian sausage, made my marinara sauce, and threw it over the Tinkyada spaghetti. Voila! If only every night were that easy.
