Well, I'm more than 14 weeks pregnant and we're just now getting around to taking a picture of my growing belly. I should add, this picture doesn't do it justice. It is actually MUCH bigger than it appears from this front angle. Also, I thought the black and white would be more flattering especially by the ninth month.
I've gotten my energy back, but now my major complaint is I'm hungry all of the time. I wish I could just go three hours without needing a snack. Oh well, the baby needs banana pudding and chocolate milk right?
The past couple of weeks the following have made its way into my grocery shopping cart for the first time ever: pimento cheese sandwich spread, Little Debbie snack cakes, and the ingredients for banana pudding.
But my major cravings have been for --no, not chocolate, not ice cream -- but sandwiches. Any kind of cold cut will do, but primarily turkey and roast beef. Not a great craving to have since pregnant women are advised to stay away from deli meats!
So enough about food.
We've been hinting to Grant that there is a baby inside of mommy's belly. And thankfully, no questions yet. He started his new Montessori school in August and now after just over a month, his teacher informed me they had a major break through. He is talking! And not just words here and there, but telling stories and talking about his family. This may sound ridiculous to others, but Grant, who is normally an outgoing talkative kid at home, shuts down around strangers, new kids or new situations.
He now cries when I pick him up from school because he wants to stay.
I'm so proud of him.
