Looking a little better

Princess's room is looking a little better than it was I made a little room in the middle of the floor and I started putting all the baby stuff into the crib that Princess hasn't used in a few months just to get them out of the way and also out of our room so yay!! Lol. We went camping this past weekend and it was a ton of fun and I have decided I really like camping pregnant in the Explorer rather that on the ground in a tent lol. Princess stayed at my parents thankfully I think it'd be too cold for her.
Princess had fun at grandma and Papa's house.

Today I'm 15 weeks and 5 days (most of the counters don't include leap day weird)

I'm feeling really good today. Yesterday I had some bad morning sickness as well as on Saturday morning thankfully I didn't throw up. Baby is moving a lot more now finally. Yesterday I didn't feel much movement and it kind of worried me so I just laid face down for a minute or two until I felt a little kick. Princess woke us up one morning at 5:30 and after she fell back asleep we were just laying there talking and he told me while I was asleep he was rubbing my belly and the baby kicked him and he was so giddy it was so sweet.

"Cravings" of the day are pot stickers

Traditional Pot Stickers


  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 medium head cabbage, finely chopped
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 2 slices fresh ginger root, finely chopped
  • 2 water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 (14 ounce) package wonton wrappers
  • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon chili oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar


  1. Crumble pork into a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the pork, cabbage, green onion, ginger, water chestnuts, salt, sugar and sesame oil. Chill in the refrigerator 6 to 8 hours, or overnight.
  3. Place a tablespoon of the pork mixture into each of the wonton wrappers. Fold the wrappers, and seal the edges with a moistened fork.
  4. In a large, deep skillet, heat 3 tablespoons vegetable oil over medium high heat. Place the pot stickers into the oil seam sides up. Heat 30 seconds to a minute. Pour water into the skillet. Gently boil 7 to 8 minutes, until oil and water begins to sizzle, then add remaining oil. When the bottoms begin to brown, remove pot stickers from heat.
  5. In a small serving bowl, mix together the chili oil, soy sauce, and vinegar, adjusting proportions to taste.
