As I sit here 25 weeks pregnant with nothing really done, I realize that I need to start-up a list of things that should to be done before baby #2 arrives. When I was pregnant with my first son I was totally unprepared all they way around, and I was also a first time mother so I didn’t know what to expect, but now I feel more seasoned in motherhood.

I’m so excited to announce that my husband and I are expecting another baby boy this fall. If you have already been following my blog then you will know that this will be Baby #2 for us. Although the road so far has been rough I would not trade these “struggle days” for the world.
My first trimester was very difficult. On top of me losing weight from my morning sickness, I also had a hard time keeping food down due to my severe food aversions.

My son absolutely loves lunch and snack time, and I love hitting him with new, fresh, healthy alternatives to those meals. So usually I turn to Pinterest when I’m trying to find a snack or lunch that’s out of the ordinary ( It keeps him from getting bored with some of the same old stuff). Over the years I have found hundreds of new recipes and idea’s to feed my busy tot, and I thought it would be an awesome idea to share 3 of his favorites with you all: Continue reading
