It's been awhile...

It's been awhile since I have been able to update the blog. We have been very busy! Stella is almost 10 months, I am 22 weeks pregnant, and Lucas turned 28!

The baby bump is definitely showing now. We had a sonogram at 20 weeks and the baby is very busy. He or she (we are not finding out) looks a lot different than Stella did at her 20 weeks sonogram. The baby moves a lot more than Stella did too.

Stella is doing great and growing everyday! She crawls all over the house and is beginning to talk. She says "Mama", "Dog" (which usually comes out "gog"), and "girl". She also waves and points. She LOVES to swim! She kicks her feet, moves her arms, and tries to put her face in the water constantly! It doesn't bother her at all to get water up her nose! We start "Mom & Baby" swim lessons at the YMCA on Monday for two weeks. We are also going to the Destin, FL with the Firmin's in two weeks for vacation. Lucas and I can't wait for her to see the beach and get in the ocean. We think we have a little water baby on our hands and we love it!

I have started a small business venture doing something I love, cooking!!! I have opened a booth at our local farmer's market downtown on Saturday mornings. The name of my business is, "Chez Jenny". Chez is french and is loosely translated as "from the home of". I am selling frozen food that is ready to be cooked for family dinners or parties, along with a few pastries. Last week I sold Chicken Enchiladas with Roasted Tomatillo Chile Salsa, Turkey and Artichoke stuffed shells with Arrabbiata sauce, and Eggplant Parmesan. I hope to be at the market 2 weekends out of the month. I will be there next on June 13th. We would love for everyone to come visit our booth! The market is located on the corner of North & Main downtown, Saturday's 8-12.

I love to drive my Daddy's truck but get really scared of the windshield wipers, I duck like they are going over my head!

My favorite spot to crawl to in the kitchen.
