We heard the baby's heartbeat Thursday...166...the nurse joked based on the wive's tale that it was a girl because of the fast heartrate...Jes didn't much appreciate that. The boys are definately voting for a boy...especially Chase. It would be a great birthday gift for him! The baby is due May 11 just days before his birthday. I am beginning to feel better, but not completely recovered yet. Thank you for all of the prayers! That's about all I can think of to catch you up on now! Enjoy all the new pictures! So sorry for the delay...I will try to be better!
First Sucker! a miniature dumdum...she was quite pleased ;)
sporting mommy's heels
And standing in them so well!
She crawls up to this at grandma and grandpa's house, calls for "bankie" her blanket, and says "rockie, rockie"... too cute
Gianna has an obsession with Cell phones, so Grandma got her one for herself ;)
She loves it of course
Learned how to fully say "hello" with it instead of just "hi"
And will walk around the house like this talking to herself for quite awhile

Wanted to share another GREAT dinner idea. Jes and I treated ourselves to Jimmy's Egg here in Wichita a couple of weeks ago. I am a HUGE fan of their food and prices. Anyway, he ordered Sweet Potato Pancakes for his meal. He was blown away, as was I. I decided, during a dinner dilemma, to recreate the meal. I quickly shooed Jes out the door when he got home (to mow before it rained) while Maisy and I hurried with dinner before he discovered our supper surprise. We cooked up some delicious turkey sausage from Aldi (by the way, excellent special purchases next week), some eggs, grapes, and this wonderful treat. There are many recipes, this is the Sweet Potato Pancake recipe I used.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cups milk
4 teaspoons melted butter, plus more for greasing skillet
2 whole eggs
1 sweet potato, cooked until tender, peeled and pureed
Pecan butter, recipe follows
Maple syrup, for serving
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix together and whisk until smooth. Cook batches in buttered skillet on medium high temperature until bubbles form on the surface, then turn over and cook until dark golden brown. Serve with pecan butter and maple syrup.
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans toasted and cooled
1/2 pound butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
Mix all ingredients together (use rubber gloves). Roll in parchment paper and freeze. Cut into slices and top sweet potato pancakes.
Yield: 10 servings
