Some Things

+ Making: A baby! Haha! But it's true. Peanut just keeps growing and growing. I forgot how hard it is on my body to be pregnant but totally worth it. I wouldn't trade a second of it.


+ Cooking: Homemade apple sauce. It makes the house smell amazing! Tonight's dinner is pretty simple since Rob has an eye appointment this evening. We are eating just grilled cheese or leftovers, but we are going to have homemade apple sauce to go with it. Delicious!


+ Drinking: A lot of water. Frankly I get tired of water but I'm trying to drink plenty of water with this pregnancy.

+ Reading: I finished the first book of The Lord of the Rings so I'm on to book two (The Two Towers). I'm really enjoying these books so far. I don't know why I waited so long to read them.

+ Wanting: A hoagie sandwich. Man I seriously seriously seriously want one so bad, but I'm trying to be good. Every single time I see a HyVee commercial I want to go there and buy a ton of lunch meat and make a big ol' sandwich. I know I could ignore the rule or heat my lunch meat, but I don't like heated lunch meat and I'm trying to be good. This baby has no idea what I'm giving up for him (or her).

+ Looking: Forward to the holiday season. I always love that time of the year. There's just something that's in the air that I love. It's hard to explain but I love it!

+ Playing: Around with nursery ideas in my head. Of course I can't finalize anything until I know we are having a girl or a boy, but I'm trying to come up with some ideas either way.


+ Wasting: Too much money on cravings. Seriously the cravings are crazy this time. I would list them but it would only make me want them.

+ Needing: To go birthday shopping for my toddler who is becoming a preschooler in less than a month. We aren't even sure what we are getting her yet.

+ Smelling: That homemade apple sauce that I'm making. Smells like fall!

+ Wearing: Maternity pants. I doesn't make me sad at all. Elastic wait pants are amazing and so comfortable! I can still wear some of my regular pants but they are getting tight and a little uncomfortable so I have no problem switching. Plus I found some long enough.

+ Remembering: Not much these days it seems. Pregnancy brain is real, ya'll!

+ Noticing: A tiny baby bump growing. Of course right now it still looks like I'm just a little chubby to everyone else, but I know I have a beautiful baby cooking in there. You have no idea how thankful and happy I am about this. Of course mixed in is terror and feeling overwhelmed, but it's all good.


+ Knowing: How amazing Addison is. She is growing so fast and progressing even faster. I think she is underestimated because she's delayed in speech but she is very bright. I know that she is going to be fine. I don't worry about her the way I used to. Of course I still worry but not the way I used to.


+ Thinking: I need to clean. I have been feeling crummy and with all my injuries, cleaning has taken a backseat around here. I really need to get this house cleaned.

+ Feeling: Tired. But that's not new. Overall, I'm feeling pretty good despite all my injuries.

+ Bookmarking: Recipes. I have been already looking at freezer meals to start putting together a list of some I want to make for when the baby comes. The hubs isn't much of a cook which is okay and I remember not wanting to cook much when Addie was born and we don't need to eat out all the time so I want to make some freezer meals for after the baby is born. So I'm looking for some ideas now.

+ Opening: The windows. Well, currently they are closed but I keep opening them then I have to close them again. Then I open them then I close them. This back and forth weather is a little annoying but I'll take the really nice, open window weather when I can.


+ Wishing: My toe would heal. It is way less bruised but I can't bend it or stretch out my toes. I think I might have broken or cracked something after all.

+ Enjoying: The beautiful fall weather! I love being able to open up the house and just enjoy having the house open. It's been really comfortable in the house and even better we have been able to go for family walks again and just enjoy the weather.

+ Waiting: For my ultrasound. I am so excited to find out if Peanut is a boy or girl. Just a few more weeks.

+ Hoping: The Royals start pulling it together. It makes me not want to watch anymore because they have been playing crummy lately. Get it together before the postseason!

+ Marveling: At the wonder that is my husband. He is an amazing dad but also an amazing and patient husband. I am a terror when I am pregnant (although he would argue that it's not just when I'm pregnant). He has picked up some of the slack for me around the house and with the kid. I don't know what I would do without him.


xo, B
