I just finished a bowl of Cocoa Puffs Chocolate Cheerios, this is where I combine Chocolate Cheerios with Cocoa Puffs into one beautiful bowl of cereal and I eat it, happily. I enjoy the two textures and the slight differences of flavors together.
It’s a beautiful union.
Speaking of food, this week I was able to enjoy a Buffalo Chicken Ranch sandwich from Chili’s. I had only had a bite or two of one before in my life and it didn’t really do anything for me. But this pregnancy, I seem to enjoy THE HOT AND SPICY, the spicier, the better and could not get one of those sandwiches off of my mind.
On Monday, I looked at Brian with big, puppy dog eyes and said “honey, darling, sweetest husband in the world, you know I rarely play the pregnancy craving card but I must have a Buffalo Chicken Ranch sandwich from Chili’s as soon as possible, or else I’m certain I will die.”
He smiled and said “whatever you want.”
So off we went and when my plate arrived in front of me, my mouth? IT WATERED. And I ate every last bit of that sandwich and can not wait to have another.
Like soon. Maybe now. Also, would love a beer with it. YES. A BEER.
I need to change directions, food is way too important to me right now and I can’t seem to focus on anything else…let’s see what else is going on? Pubic bone pain, not sleeping, backaches, bursts of energy, allofthedischarge, swollen feet, not sleeping, NST’s, Braxton Hicks …
there is a baby who is going to be living with us in just a few short weeks. Last night, the four of us were hanging out in the baby’s unfinished-but-soon-to-be-finished nursery. The kids were playing catch with a hippo (not a real hippo, I stuffed one), Brian was laying on the floor and I was sitting on the glider. I said “friends, do you realize that in three weeks from today, our family of five could be hanging out in this very room….TOGETHER?”
It was an exciting thought. (actually, exciting feels like such an obvious word … it was a beautiful thought. Amazing. Magical.
Forget it. There is not a word to describe it.
We just can’t wait to bring him home and create our life as a family of five.
I leave you with a picture of the three of us, while watching TV one night.
