Water Water Everywhere

Since becoming pregnant I've taken to drinking water at almost all times. On the way to work, at work, with dinner, after dinner, before bed, when I wake up during the night...

Last night Andy figured out for me approximately how much water I do drink in a given day.

Roughly 1 gallon. No really, a gallon of water everyday.

Now if only the bladder capacity weren't the equivalent of 3 tablespoons.
Look what I can do!

I can make a pretty awesome Mango Lassi with my 1/2 cup of fruit and 1 cup of yogurt allotment for dinner.

What can you do?

Chubby Bunny Chubby Bunny Chubby Bunny

Today was sonogram number 6 and our little boy gets cuter every time, even if I do say so with a slight prejudice! He weighed in at a whopping 4 lbs 6 oz with just a little over 2 months to go.

Also new this time, he was sucking on his fingers. Piggy little man already eats enough to measure nearly two weeks ahead of schedule and wants to eat more!

I suppose this is some massive foreshadowing for his teenage years. Good thing we joined the discount food warehouse!

'Nilla Wafers with a huge glass (at least a pint glass full) of milk and Banana Nesquik. That would be SO tasty right now.

Do you think a very good imagination can turn a slice of whole wheat bread with peanut butter and some water into 'Nilla wafers and banana milk?

No, I didn't think so either.

Open Note to the Women in my Office

Stop flushing the toilets with your feet.

You're coming out of the stall to wash your hands anyway. The three seconds between flushing the toilet and getting out to get your hands under hot water will not harm you. Think about the germs that are already on the doors and locks of the stall. You didn't open and close those with your feet did you?

They do not mop every day in our restroom and when they do, they don't use bleach. All you are accomplishing is to drag the muck from the floor onto the toilet handle for all of us who flush the toilet using our hands.

Please stop.

8 Years Ago...

I was worried about tripping down the aisle and falling on my face.

I hadn't eaten in about 2 weeks.

I had no clue where we would be spending that night.

I was totally shell-shocked.

I was the happiest I had ever been up to that point in my life.


I'm not worried about embarrassing myself, you've seen me at my worst.

I just ate an hour ago.

I'm spending tonight asleep next to you.

I'm shocked that you still love me just as much now as you did then (see above note about my worst).

I am the happiest I have ever been.

Happy Anniversary my love. Here's to many many more.
