Menu Plan: April 2 - April 8 {and a Gender Reveal}

Sharing our Menu Plan for April 2 - April 8.

Leg cramps. Aching back and hips. Braxton Hicks contractions. Fits of insatiable hunger followed by absolute disgust over everything food-related. Insomnia... All in the same week.

I had forgotten about the joys of the second trimester.

But the real joys make the discomfort worth it. Like making the decision to find out the baby's gender and then sharing the news with family and friends. (Click on "Read More" below to find out whether we're expecting a boy or a girl!) And feeling the baby's increasing movements... even if they do involve kicking my bladder non-stop. And having the energy to spend several hours completing a task that's been on my to-do list forever.
It's a BOY! Baby BOY Rittler is due this August!

Insomnia, in particular, has been frustrating for me. I know I should be sleeping and recharging. Especially now because the upcoming week at work is going to be insane. But I do like how it's allowed me to catch up a bit on life while the rest of the family sleeps and the house is quiet.

With any luck, I'll get to start writing another blog post after sharing this week's menu plan. So... are you ready to see what's on deck for dinner at our house this week?
