{I've started a, Photo of the Day, series here on my blog.  I'm doing this to keep my passion for photography alive, as well as keeping myself challenged (which can be hard with mommy duties constantly call my name) to continue learning my photography skills.  By doing this, I'll stay connected to the beauty of the world that surrounds me on a daily basis...the #1 reason why I love pursing my passion for photography.  Wanna join me?}

Throughout my entire pregnancy so far, I've been eating tons of eggs.  I actually couldn't eat eggs at the beginning of my pregnancy with C. Now that I'm in my 2nd trimester, my body, or shall I say, my baby still wants eggs, but my mind is kinda sick of them.  And, I never, ever thought that would happen because I LOVE eggs.

The other difference with this pregnancy is that I don't really crave sweets.  If I eat something sweet, a little later I get a strange taste in my mouth and I just feel a little icky.  This baby doesn't want the sweetness, but older sister sure did!!

So, this morning I went with my mind (sorry baby).  I wanted something other than eggs and I knew I had all the ingredients to make The Pioneer Woman's pancakes from scratch.   I also knew this wouldn't be easy with Lil' C running around the house.

I asked her to help me, but today she wasn't very interested.  But she is VERY interested in washing her hands (which you've seen twice already) in the sink.  So I set it up for her and she went to water-play-town.

As she was playing, and as I was cooking, I was going back and forth helping her and tending to the pancakes.  Then I grabbed the food coloring and started adding colors to her water.  She was in heaven.

I was definitely tired from all the back and forth tending I had to do, but in the end, she got to play and I got to eat a homemade meal that wasn't eggs! :)

Until next time...
