Three Peas and Their Pod

No, we aren’t changing the name of our blog, but we do have some exciting news to share. We are expecting our first baby! We are both beyond excited. I am 13 weeks along and due on September 24th. It has been really hard to keep this a secret from all of you. We wanted to make sure our little baby was healthy before we announced our good news to the world. We’ve been to the doctor twice and everything is looking great!

Josh has been doing most of the cooking and baking for the past month or so. The foods I have been eating are definitely not blog worthy–toast, cereal, Malt-O-Meal, crackers, veggie sandwiches, etc. I have been feeling a little better this past week, so hopefully I will be back to normal soon. I miss being in the kitchen.

We don’t know what variety we are having yet, but we will find out when the time comes. We will keep you all posted! And again, we are not changing the name of our blog. We will still be “Two Peas and Their Pod,” we will just have one more helper in the kitchen.

  1. Oh my gosh! Congrats to you, Maria and Josh! Your child will be extremely lucky to have excellent chefs as their parents!

  2. Congratulations Maria and Josh!! I know what you mean. I’m now 5 1/2 months along and it has been a struggle to be in the kitchen. One minute I don’t even want to look at the kitchen and the next minute I can only handle cereal. I’m finally getting back into the kitchen after a 4 month hiatus, but it’s hard. I still don’t have a ton of energy. Glad to hear that baby is healthy and doing well. I’m excited for you guys!

  3. Congratulations! I too am 13 weeks today and due on Sept. 23rd. Though this is my second not my first. Love every minute it of it, because it goes way to fast!!!! Babies are so much fun, and mine always helps me in the kitchen!!

  4. Maria – I have been hoping this for you as I know that this is what you want. I am so EXCITED for you and there is really nothing better than being a parent. You and Josh are going make terrific parents. I have some books I want to send your way, that helped me more than anyone’s advice. Thank you for sharing with us….I could not be happier! xxx

  5. This is wonderful! Funny, though – when I first found your blog, I kept looking for evidence of your “pod,” which I thought was your child πŸ™‚

  6. Awwww…been reading your blog for a couple of years (I get my cookie fix here for my family!) and I’m so happy for you guys. I have 4 babies (not really babies anymore) and the first pregnancy is still so fresh and sweet in my memory. Enjoy every moment!

  7. Oh Maria – I am beyond excited for you!! This is the best news I’ve heard in a long time. You and Walter Dan will be wonderful parents!! Congrats!

  8. Congratulations! We have a 3 month at home and she is just amazing. Enjoy every minute of this special time with your husband!

  9. Scream!!! Maria this is wonderful news! A little pea in the pod. Rest up, take care. Congratulations you two! Oh you will be wonderful parents, cooking up amazing gourmet baby foods!

  10. Congratulations!!! The name is still fitting….you and Josh are the Two Peas and the little one is now your Pod. πŸ™‚ Hopefully, you get to feeling better soon. Fresh ginger root seemed to help me a little. Try steeping it with tea.

  11. SWEET, Maria! Congratulations! How fun for you. Love the picture with the three peas and how one is smaller than the other two.
    Now the fun begins. Hope you’re feeling much better soon. That first trimester can be a beast.

  12. CONGRATULATIONS Maria and Josh!! I’m so, so happy for you! You two are going to be the sweetest, most wonderful parents! Hope you’re feeling better soon!

  13. hurray! i’m pregnant with my third, so i guess we have a different kind of third pea in our pod! oj with sprite and greek yogurt with jam were what kept me going!! good luck!

  14. Congratulations! There is nothing more precious than a new baby. That third pea is sure to be a great “helper” in the kitchen. I am often found making dinner entirely one handed because my helper thinks she needs to “help”. Hope the sickness goes away soon. Congratulations again!

  15. Congratulations!! Being a parent for the first time is the most amazing feeling (so I’ve heard) and even better than falling in love πŸ˜‰ (so I’ve heard). Enjoy this time and hope your health gets better soon!

  16. Maria- I’m thrilled for you and Josh. But guess what?! I’m pregnant too! I’m 13 weeks, 3 days and am due September 21st! I just announced it on my blog last week. That’s why I’ve been MIA too. No energy at all. I’ll be sending prayers for you and this little one!


  17. Congratulations!! That is wonderful news! I just had my first six weeks ago and she is sleeping in one arm as I type with the other hand. πŸ™‚ Here is a little something I heard recently: “Babies are a gift from God… Remember that at 3 AM.” πŸ˜‰

  18. Congratulations! We actually have the exact same due date – how cool is that? Hope you are feeling good and have a little more energy. This will be our #2. Big brother Alex doesn’t quite know what is about to unfold. πŸ™‚

  19. i love you blog and make several of your recipes on a consistent basis! i am so happy for both of you! congratulations!:o)

  20. Congratulations! What wonderful news. I’ve been a mama for 2 weeks now and it is officially the best thing ever. You both will be blown away by your new addition! I hope that your pregnancy goes well and that the morning sickness ends soon.

  21. Congrats! My baby just turned 2 and I can tell you it’s wonderful to be a parent. I’m glad you can eat veggie sandwiches – when I had morning sickness all vegetables tasted like dirt to me. I was so excited to be able to eat a salad again when it wore off!

  22. Congrats! I am so happy for you! Has anyone told you if your having a boy or girl yet?! Like family members or friends. My hubs can tell 100%, he’s weird. All the girls at his work go to him to ask, he’s always right. I also had a friend tell me I was preggers with a boy when I was like 8 or nine weeks, in baggy clothing, and I hadn’t even told her I was pregnant yet, people are amazing!

  23. The best to you both! In the best way possible, your lives will never be the same. You won’t know how you got along with out “them”! <3

  24. congratulations Maria and Josh on the coming addition to your family – Maria, hope the rest of your pregnancy is easy on you – all the very best

  25. I am so happy for you, Maria!! This is wonderful news. I wish you all the best and every possible happiness. Feel good! And enjoy this time. There’s nothing like being pregnant. Take care, and I am looking forward to watching your blog to see how you are doing!

  32. That’s bad when I spell my own blog name wrong! A bunch of 10 year olds for a sleepover and “baking” birthday party have made mommy a little frazzled!

  33. Congratulations on your petite baby pea to be! A new kitchen, a new baby – a whole new world of love opening up. Best wishes.

  38. Hearty congrats to you both from one “pea” to your soon to be threesome πŸ™‚ September is the very best month to have a baby, but I’m biased since that’s my birth month. Hope you are feeling better soon.
