Big News - Small happenings

Yes, we are expecting our first little one!!! This is week 17 of baby Sutters and I am thankful for many things during this first 4 months:
I am thankful for my husband who makes me fresh squeezed OJ every morning and is always taking care of me. (Love!)
I am thankful that I did not get morning sickness (except during weeks 11 and 12 that I felt a little nauseous).
I am thankful for water (plain, room temp water or a nice cold bottle of Perrier or Pelegrino).
I am thankful for the internet and all the information I can access about pregnancy (since both of us lost our mothers and feel a little lost during this first time run).
I am thankful for days-off (as mentioned in previous posts)

On a random note I made this delicious banana and doce de leite pie (or as you might know dulce de leche). I followed this recipe:

PS: I did make a slight change on mine, since I was afraid a whole can of doce de leite would leave it too sweet. I used a little more than half can of doce de leite then I added half prepared box of french vanilla flan, which is about 1 cup. All the rest is the same. Yummy!

Happy weekend!!!


  1. I am thankful for all of the same things, including a wonderful wife who has to go through all of these things while still working. And yes, the pie is fantastic!!

    1. so, it looks like I wrote a comment to myself. Thanks J!

  2. I forgot you have this blog! I have to figure out how to get your posts sent to my inbox....found it when I was logging into my Blogger account, saw your picture and seriously thought you were a model! You look AMAZING!!!
    I'm not as knowledgeable as the internet, but remember I've been through it and can be a support as your body and emotions continue to be wacky.
    Praying fervently for protection around that little one and am SOOOOOO excited to be an aunt again!!!!
