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).
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!
