For Christmas dinner we went to Jared's parent's fattoria (that's farm in Italian) to celebrate. Because we don't have kids yet, we only take pictures of the dogs....;) Here are some pictures of Roma and her Uncle Midas enjoying the snow. It was a beautiful day!

The consistency is good, the taste not so much. I ate one bite and that will suffice for me. It tastes a little bit like stale milk but Jared is going to eat it any ways. One of the two balls of cheese is already gone. One gallon of milk yielded about 14 ounces of cheese. Here is the finished product:

It was actually a present for her dad, an electronics gift for Jared with that horrible hard plastic packaging that she must have gnawed on for an hour. I hope the gift still works - pictures of that after Christmas when Jared has officially opened it! It looks like she had a marvelous time....

So Jared called Katie, his friend who is a vet, and got instructions for us to follow. We didn't really want to go in to the emergency clinic if we didn't have to...it's a good thing we have such a large dog otherwise all of these little problems she has would be much more serious. We are now on watch for the next few days to make sure she doesn't have any major stomach problems.
I hope Anthony is not as high maintenance as Roma is......

As I was getting dressed yesterday I realized that all of my jeans that still fit were dirty. So I thought this would be the day I give these maternity jeans a shot. I never really thought it would be that hard, but when it came down to it, I didn't want to wear them. They are fat pants after all. Now I understand why Erinn never wore maternity jeans for her first baby....
But once I gave in and put them on, I was sold! Maternity jeans are the most comfortable pants ever - I felt like I was wearing sweat pants all day, and who doesn't love that?! I might have to buy another pair, that's how cozy these pants are!
Other news this week: Jared spent just under four hours commuting to/from work yesterday. It's raining in Seattle - is this new?? Why aren't people used to this around here?! I am thankful that Jared works so hard to take care of his family. Roma likes to eat!
I made my first loaf of rustic Italian bread this week, and it turned out great! I never liked baking and now that I'm pregnant I have the desire to bake all the time. Lucky for Jared.....

18 weeks pregnant! I'm finally starting to show and still feeling great. Tomorrow we get to find out if we are having a boy or girl and then the nursery decorating can begin! I'm sure that we are going to have the happiest little baby, because Jared keeps me hysterically laughing most of the time. Baby and I are doing well!
