Taking advantage of the sunshine!

Today has been such a nice day. I'm very thankful for the sunshine, because it was supposed to rain. We had great weather yesterday too. I'll be 16 weeks into my pregnancy tomorrow, and its going by fairly quickly. Here is a pic of me at 15 weeks

Pic of me today (almost 16 weeks) I think I look smaller in this one for some reason.

My morning sickness is gone for the most part, I've had a couple days in the last two weeks that I've gotten sick or had a really bad day. Well half of the day was bad, but other than not being interested in food at all, I've felt great. I've been walking and going for bike rides on days its nice out and take the girls with me in their chariot stroller when I'm babysitting. I also bought some flowers and replanted them to put on our porch and stairs, it makes the house look a little nicer even though we are doing some work to our yard and house.

This last winter hit us really hard with wind and knocked down our fence in several places, then hit us harder with tons and tons of snow, so we have to fix the damage from that too. So we are redoing our fence, fixing our roof, putting new windows in and I'm going to work on fixing our flower bed out front that was taken out by the guy who was plowing our snow. So the flowers are to distract from the chaos in our yard. I hope it helps.

I've been trying really hard to be more creative in the food department for my daughter and the girl I babysit. I've gotten a lot of ideas from pinterest and I'm going to try to document some of the meals I give my daughter so I can help anyone else that may be in a rut like I am. She is only 13 months old, so she can't eat everything yet, but we are working up to it .

Here are a couple simple ideas, some of these aren't "clean whole foods" but we are seeing what she likes and can handle for now.

Make a batch of whole wheat pancakes and freeze them for a quick breakfast later on.

My daughter loves to eat watermelon like this, it feels great on her molars that are coming in.

Subway cheese pizza was her first pizza slice by her self. She was so excited about it, she had fresh fruit too.

Natural Peanut Butter and honey sandwich, grapes, and string cheese.

Natural Peanut butter and jelly sandwich (normal jam), and grapes. We have to eat the grapes before they go bad.

My clean lunch. Sandwich, Ezekiel bread, veganaise, mustard, avacado, a little havarti, tomato, and sprouts. It would have been better with some red onion. Served with some cottage cheese.

We spent a lot of time outside today, and most of our time inside was spent practicing walking, she's so close to being able to walk more than 7 or so steps. Its exciting. We also went to tot swim for the first time in months which was fun, we'll have to go more once I get my swimsuit in. Well, its my bedtime, so of to bed I go. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and week.
