Profiteroles and ultrasound experience

Some photos from today. Here you can see my first attempt at choux pastry. A friend has shown me how to make French éclairs, and it turned out to be pretty easy! As you can see here, I succeeded at my first attempt. However, I ended up making the savoury version (filled with salmon, Edamer cheese, eggs, dill and finely chopped red onion. Everything on a base of crème fraîche).

I made some sweet ones of what was left, too.

However, Greger managed to steal one while I answered the phone (he’s very fast like that). Here’s his guilty look.

Also, today we were to the last ultrasound session before actually meeting the baby. It’s really fun and somehow it feels unreal seeing a person inside of you like that. It also feels just like being a part of one of those movie scenes where other couples are doing ultrasound.

Sometimes it’s pretty hard to make out things on the monitor, even though the nurse tells you what you’re looking at. I could definitely see the head of the baby and the face, and I also saw that it’s a boy very clearly. When she was showing us his legs and feet, though, it all looked like a black and white mess to me, and I had to pretend I saw what she was talking about, because I didn’t want to seem like a bad mother. Here above you can see his head in profile (he’s sort of lying on his back). To me, he looks like his father already!

    Oooh, the savory version of eclairs sound delicious! Poor guilty Greger! Hehehhee

    That nurse probably sees hundreds of ultrasounds a week, so dont worry if you couldnt make out what was a leg or an arm :-) So excited you get to meet your baby soon!!!

      Thanks, Laura! I guess you’re right, after all, I didn’t have that many chances to practice at looking at ultrasound:) the only thing important here is that she was happy with what she saw:)

    Your savoury version of profiteroles sounds AMAZING!

    Three friends and my big sister are all expecting! Your experience at the ultrasound place reminds me of a scene in Friends where Rachel’s at the doctor and can’t see her baby either! Precious photos. :)

    If there’s one thing that shines through from your blog, it’s that you would never be a bad mother.
    Having an ultrasound is a wonderful experience, it’s the first time that you appreciate that there really is a small person inside you.

    Советую узи снимки сосканировать как нибудь или перефотографировать,потому что они со временем исчезают.Моей дочке 19 лет и соотвественно 19 лет подобному снимку.Он лежит в альбоме ,бережно храним и почти исчез,остались едва уловимые фрагменты изображения.
