Let's take a quick inventory on this Monday since I can't form a coherent thought lately :)
About a baby's name. We have known it's a boy for 2 months, and still no name. And Kate and her readers even did their best to give us some great sugestions! It's getting ridiculous, and there are lots of names we like, but nothing we love.
That a mom I know can successfully fight her battle with cancer, but it's not looking good, and I cry every time I think about her and her two boys and her husband. Things like this shake my faith a little, and can't help but get mad when bad things happen to good people.
For a healthy and non-colicky baby to be born early. We've had two colicky babies out of six, and I feel like we're due for another but don't think my nerves could handle it...so praying for a happy and peaceful little guy who will come safely before his due date. Is that too much to ask?
A modified 17 day diet for me but Phil is doing the real thing and lost ten pounds in a week. So he follows the plan, and I do mostly, except I add in chocolate and bread and chips every once in a while. Because the baby needs it ;)
Lots of veggies and proteins. We had zoodles and meat sauce last night.
Every day we eat plain greek yogurt with strawberries, egg muffins (with turkey sausage, onions, peppers, cheese and spinach), and protein shakes using our Magic Bullet (with this protein powder, frozen fruit, almond milk, and spinach). It's boring but totally doable.
A human ~20 weeks and 5 days old. Just barely starting to feel him move, as my placenta is on the outside wall and acting as a cushion for his little punches and kicks.
I'm walking and doing this pregnancy DVD workout when it's not nice enough to walk outside or I can't fit it in before it's too dark.
Hmmmm, blogs not books, does that count?
To podcasts while I walk - Fountains of Carrots, Ghost Fawn Podcast, and Catholic Stuff You Should Know.
Planet Earth with the kids, tv comedies with Phil, and Gilmore Girls by myself because I never watched it back in 2006 when it came out - too busy having kids or something.
Our kitchen floor is being sanded and refinished, then the island is being constructed, and the electrician is coming to finish his work. The house remodel should be complete by the end of April, right in time for Maggie's First Communion on May 1st! Nothing like cutting it close to the wire! We also have our spring break next week, and can't wait for some time off of work and school.
Oh and the Scentsy Giveaway ends on Wednesday night...only 26 people have entered, so the odds of winning are ever in your favor :)
What's going on in your neck of the woods?
