First off, if you missed it last week, I shared that the Chiplet had arrived!
As I expected, the Chiplet arrived early. Even earlier than I expected, especially since I had started to doubt myself. I had no indications he was coming anytime soon, so I figured I was just being overly hopeful. Here I was with so many things ready (although I still had a couple tasks I hadn’t done since I had been feeling poorly the week prior to his arrival), and I figured I had jinxed myself. That he was not only coming later, but maybe even late!
So, Happy Thanksgiving and here is something I am thankful for this year that I didn’t even predict last year:
Come back next week for more pictures and the birth story!
Is it okay for me to share another half-recipe with you? And an ice cream one when it is cool weather season? I hope so, because that is what you are getting today.
As you (might) know, my posts tend to be a bit delayed on here. I usually can’t make a recipe and have time to write about it immediately, so that’s how it goes. I actually am writing about this party only a couple days after it happened, but just posting it about 2 months after the fact. The Fudgelet normally parties at home for his birthday. This year, since it was his last birthday as an only child, I decided to go somewhere. Since he loves blueberries, we were going to do a two part one…pick blueberries, then go to a park and play/eat. Well, as you see, I said “we were.” We had a rainier and cooler spring this year which meant berries weren’t ready until near the end of July (normally they are ready around July 4). And then the park part had to get cancelled, too, since it ended up raining that morning for a bit (the first rain of the entire month, and then some). Siiiiiiigh. So, back to hosting it at home! He was a little disappointed at first, but then recovered when he knew that everyone was still coming here. He cared more about seeing his friends than the park.
Before I let the summer get away from us, last month we went to Maryland for what will be our only visit this year, since this Christmas we will be home celebrating our first weeks as a family of 4. We had a few goals for this visit…
That’s right. Here is the official blog announcement. There is going to be a second Fudgelet in the family. Well, obviously I won’t call that child Fudgelet as well. I will need a second nickname. It is still a bit early to be confident on the gender, so we shall see. I had joked previously about making the name related to salt/chips/etc. in honor of K’s favorite treats. And it could work in a sweet and salty way for their names. Anyway, I am not focusing on the baby today as much as myself. I don’t get too many chances to be selfish these days, and I am taking advantage of it on here today. This is also my moment to remind sensitive souls and eyes to stop reading here. If you don’t enjoy knowing or hearing about female things, then go now and come back next post.
