Baby and Cookbook News :)

Baby |

All kinds of fun to spill today. As most of you know, I have my first cookbook coming out this year, you can peek and even pre-order on Amazon HERE Barnes & Noble HERE. It has been an amazing process that I feel so blessed to be apart of. At first, the release date was going to be September 19th, but we have to bump that date one month to October because……

The Picky Palate family will be having another baby in September also! As some of you know, my youngest is almost 7 years old, so I haven’t done this whole pregnancy thing in a while…not to mention I’m no spring chicken. I am 35 years old! The funny thing is, we have been trying for another baby for almost 2 years and this little one decides to come the same time as the cookbook. Looks like he will fit in perfectly with my boys πŸ™‚Β  Yes, I did say he. We will be having a 3rd boy!

Kind of funny how you seem to forget how miserable the first trimester is. Seemed like an eternity of nausea, but I am happy to say, I made it through all of that and am feeling great at 18 weeks. Those of you who follow me on Instagram do not have to ask me any longer how I stay so skinny, I’m eating for 2 now, ok? Lol!

This is going to be quite an exciting end of 2012 for our family, I am so excited to share it with you!

    Kristen M. says:

    Jenny congratulations!!!!!!! When I saw your IG comment on Cookbook Queen’s pic last night I had a feeling this would be announced by you today. I am so excited for your families newest addition. My son’s have a 6 year age gap so I understand how you are feeling. It all feels like new experiences again. It took me that many years just to get pregnant a second time so when it happened I was shocked b/c in my mind I had reserved myself to the fact that we would probably only have one child. As you know, boys are wonderful and they have such a special place in their hearts for their mamas. πŸ™‚

    P.S. – I totally looked through your pics last night to see hiding bump pics. LOL!

    Traci says:

    Congratulations! I just had a baby almost a year ago and there is a six year gap between my second and third. I keep worrying that it will be too much. But it has been so fun and so much easier this time around with the oldest two able to help a little more. I’ve enjoyed this baby so much since it isn’t the arrangement it was before with a toddler and baby. We love her to death and my husband constantly worries I will want a fourth one so the two youngest are close in age like the first two. Enjoy…it will be wonderful and a completely different experience than the previous two! And that third will be spoiled to death by you and the oldest kids. That I worry about the most. πŸ™‚

    I’m a little late to this party but congrats on the baby!! I had to laugh at your “spring chicken” comment. My other son is 9 yrs old and I just had our second son in January (and p.s. I’m 34 too. believe me it’s definitely a game changer after you get used to one child being more on his own. But it is such a wonderful blessing too!
