Dangerous New Hobby

Now you are probably wondering what new hobby I could be starting when I am 7 1/2 months pregnant that would be considered dangerous...making ice cream :) On x-mas this year Bob made homemade peach ice cream and I was in heaven. I am in the process on making my first batch which happens to be chocolate, I have had a small taste and it is amazing! I can't believe more people don't make their own, since I have now done it and found it to be very easy. Maybe a little too easy because I have about a dozen of flavors that I want to make. My next flavor is going to be pineapple, then peach, then maybe a mixed berry? This is where it becomes dangerous because ice cream as you know is not the healthiest treat I could be making.
Peanut butter, brownies, cookie dough...yummm. I think I will have to start giving it as gifts so I can still make and try all the different kinds but not eat it all. Did I mention the chocolate ice cream I am making right now has a hint of cinnamon in it which I wanted to leave out but makes it sooo good. Matt just stuck it in the freezer to get it final hard freeze so I have to go eat dinner then we will go for our walk and then I will let myself eat a small bowl of it...well hopefully small....smallish :)

I can't believe that it is already December! I would love to say that we have been busy with getting the house ready for the baby but Matt has hurt his arm so I am still without a bedroom and the baby room seems very far off. I am trying not to worry, tell myself that both of those rooms are wants and not needs...but it hasn't taken yet:) I would love to be putting his room together, he already has so much stuff!
My swelling reach an all time high last week where I could not close my hand, which makes my job (cleaning little kids teeth) kind of hard. So I gave my notice and this Thursday is my last day of work. I am very excited to get into a new routine, so I am trying to embrace my new title of stay at home wife...homemaker...I don't know why but those all make my stomach feel sick. So I will have to think of something more fitting.
The baby is now big enough and strong enough that when he moves my stomach moves too. I love the feeling of his kicks but I have to say the full body rolls are going to take some getting use too because they kind of gross me out. We have not settled on a name yet either. Matt likes to come up with really crazy names that we would never choose so the picking of names is going slow. Also I kind of feel like I need to see him before I can name him.
