There is a Brownie That I Love

It's no secret that I have a sweet tooth. Some might argue that I have more than one, actually. Regardless, I am always on the look-out for new and delicious recipes for cookies, cakes, squares and brownies. Then I heard about this one special brownie recipe.
A few of my friends had tried it with delightful results. When I heard of the ingredients, I was a little taken aback, but the method of combining said ingredients was what really caught me off-guard. I decided to give it a whirl though, and see what came of it.
Talk about fun in the kitchen! Steve helped out, and proved to be an integral part of the method. And what success we experienced!
Our little junior brownie has been in the oven for almost 9 weeks already and we are anticipating its sweet date of completion. It's a long time to wait, but we are thrilled!
Here is a photo of said junior brownie at 8 weeks, tucked away in my rolly-polly tummy for the time being. We were originally going to wait until I was out of the first trimester before we shared our exciting news, but my mouth is the size of a whale and I couldn't keep the excitement bottled up. "Hey, mom! I'm three minutes pregnant!" I always have been terrible at surprises, so what did you really expect?
We are so excited about this new life, this new soul, and our days are filled with prayers for its safety and growth. What a miracle. There is fear of the unknown, of the potential for loss, but this is the essence of life and all we can do is embrace every moment we are blessed with.

A little brown brownie. If it turns out well you might have to share your secret recipie with me. Both recipies we've used are still flawed. But great nonetheless. You look HOT for 8 weeks preggers!
LOVE YOU and little brownie Brown too!

What a neat twist. I've heard new life referred to as "the bun in the oven" "muffin" even "peanut" but never brownie before. You will have to remember that I'm the original though.

Oh Amanda and Steve, I'm so excited for you guys. I met your mom in the mall Amanda, a few weeks back and we discussed this new delight. I was wondering when you were going to break the news and how. I love your choice of words. Can't wait to meet this newest brownie delight. And Sheri you are not old. Just young grandparents. Being a grandparent is the best part of having kids.
