Foodie Blog Roll 2

Pregnancy Foodie Project

I recently announced that we have a Bun in the Oven, and I am so excited to be able to update you on the status of Baby Hann! We can't wait to meet our little cowgirl and I have loved learning about what baby is up to each week. They change SO much from week to week during pregnancy so I wanted to come up with a way to document each step, from poppy seed to pumpkin.

I started a little project the week we found out we were pregnant {week 4} called the Pregnancy Foodie Project. Each week I research the size of the baby and find out what food it is most similar to. Then I use that as the special ingredient for my next dish. Some of the items have been especially easy and some have been quite challenging! {And how fun for a food blogger?!} So as I continue the wonderful journey of pregnancy, I will update you with new happenings as well as how big Baby Hann is getting. I hope you enjoy the updates as much as I have enjoyed the project!
