I felt special today!

Here is just a small sample of what I experience for dinner tonight. This is the first time Brad fixed me a meal that wasn't from a box or cooked all day in the crock pot. First of all, for dinner he barbecued the most amazing steaks I have ever had in my life. (Not a joke, melt in your mouth goodness) On the side he prepared watermelon, baked potatoes and a side salad. I don't even think we got to the salad because he were so stuffed from everything else. Then for desert he made creme brule, a scoop a strawberry sorbet, a filleted strawberry and a sprig of parsley as a garnish. He even thought of a garnish! Needless to say, I had an amazing dinner which included no whining from Parker while we sat at the table. He chowed down on potatoes and watermelon and didn't make a peep.
Many of you have requested more belly pictures. Here you go. I am almost 16 weeks and my belly is much larger than anyone that I know that is at this stage of pregnancy. Yeah for me. (sense the sarcasm) But, isn't this picture adorable! Priceless of Parker smiling up at me.

Wow what an impressive dinner! And great picture. Congrats on baby #2. Sorry to read you haven't been feeling well! So... random request. Would you mind taking our last name off the link on your page so it just says "Paul and Jill". I know, kinda weird but we have been having some strange experiences with people reading our blog that we don't want to. When we google our names it comes up on your blog and a few of our other friends so we're thinking that's how some people are finding us. I don't want to go private just yet because I like the fact that old friends can find me... just not creepy ones! Thanks! Sorry for the strange request. It's great to read your blog and catch up on your lives!

And you weren't expecting anything.... great job Brad. And happy anniversary!!!! I want to see a cheesy post about how in love you are with your Husband and how happy the last 6 years have been.
And your tummy looks great! These days I don't feel that far behind you. At my recent rate I'm sure I will be blowing you out of the water very soon.
Love you guys.... so happy you got married. And happy I got to be at your big day, even if I was just chasing and admiring your cute Brother at the reception.

Just realized that I never posted the comment that I had wanted to. Brad you are the greatest. I am so glad we have a son-in-law that pampers our daughter on occasion. We are so glad that Emily married you, I was really praying for it you know. We love you all. Happy Anniversary to you both.

Emily you are so cute! I love the belly shot. I have to say that Brad really is going out on a limb with the cooking thing because I can't say that he learned that from my dad. Not that my dad doesn't have is strong points but cooking was just never one of them. Emily I'm so glad that you are in our family. I couldn't have asked for a better fit for B-rad. Happy Anniversary. love you guys!
