Guess it's time to finally address this third pregnancy! Woohoo!!! So far, I have been so sick. I mentioned that here. I basically felt car sick from son up to son down ;-) Now, I find that, though it's very sporadic that it's mostly in the late afternoon and when I haven't eaten anything in a while. I also have the pregnancy acne (which is painful, feels like brusies). And did I mention exhausted?
Being pregnant at 25 and 27 is very different than being pregnant at 32...or maybe it's just the fact that I have 4 & 7 year old boys with busy schedules to attend to :-) I had some psoas pain around 10 weeks (it was painful to even walk) that I was able to fix right up with some wonderful yoga poses I'm not going to complain about everything though!!! I've already felt flutters (third pregnancy means I'm pretty in tune with my body), the boys are having fun coming up with names (Alberto Keshawn Kennan is Coltrane's choice) and are asking us tons of questions. We are over the moon excited and I know that we are partially crazy for adding a third to this mix :-) We can't wait until Spring little one!
>> MY FIRST TRIMESTER M U S T HAVES <<

Sea Band Anti Nausea Ginger Gum // I swear this gum worked, it's a bit pricey compared to your normal Trident but worth it. Get yours here
Ginger Ale // I'll be okay if I never have to drink a ginger ale again, I went through this stuff like wine ;-)
My friend Monique, one part of Idyll Isle recently launched her "Book Bandit" series. I thought I would follow suit and just post a few of our current favorite children's books. Kingston LOVES to read and that makes Kyle and I so happy. In fact, I just picked up 6 more of the the Magic Tree House series books for him. He also will read to Coltrane which is just the sweetest thing.
Kyle and I love to read (he from a kindle and me from old fashioned books) and I hope this sticks with our children forever. I still remember some of my childhood favorites-- Nancy Drew, The Babysitters Club and Sweet Valley High anyone?! Yet I digress...Check these out for your 4 & 7 year olds!
Ok y'all. I totally have my appetite back! Though my morning sickness has reared her ugly face again and I've been feeling a little icky, sporadically through the day...one thing though that has come in full effect are my cravings! I woke up yesterday and was like, 'I'm going to make bacon wrapped jalapeños for dinner.' (We ended up going out to dinner instead and I was secretly twitching bc I realllllly wanted these bad boys). But alas, I was able to make them this evening, after Kingston's football game! I mean...football and bacon wrapped jalapeños!?!?
BACON WRAPPED JALAPENOS
Whipped cream cheese (makes it easier to spread)
Cut the jalapeños in half lengthwise
De-seed and de-vein the peppers (if you want, I prefer spicy but I thought I'd play it safe this time)
"stuff" the pepper with cream cheese
sprinkle with Tony's
I split the bacon slices down the middle and then wrapped each pepper with the half of bacon
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 mins (or until bacon is cooked)
