Well hellooo amigos. I’m officially at the 12 week mark with Baby 3!!! So, to celebrate I thought I’d do a little fun linkage and sharing of the craze….
I’ve realized that the small victories around here are really small miracles. Baking is my Love. It’s almost immediate gratification. Yesterday I actually had energy to bake! I am so excited. It’s the easiest of peasiest recipes from our beloved Ree over at Pioneer Woman. I added some dark chocolate chips- cuz- and I know Miss Ree would agree- why wouldn’t cha?
I’m finally starting to come out of the 1st trimester baby-is-healthy-making-mommy-sick-as-all-get-out blues. Yay. Maybe my family can have me back soon. Progesterone medication for baby to stay put is Almost done- thank sweet baby Jesus, and counting the minutes until we’re free. And- I am so blessed with the knowledge Creighton Model family planning provided us to Know I needed progesterone for a sucessful 1st trimester- no matter how sick. And the ability to pay for and take this medication for a healthy baby.
I actually got a few precious quite morning moments with my big guy today. That hasn’t happened in forever, and he still, kinda, fits in my lap. Taking those while I still can. God has blessed me and my heart is full.
Are those crazy flippy do bedhead hairs apparent enough? Oh.My.Goodness. Last week I went to pick him up from pre-school and his teacher is like “Hey, I have a funny picture to show you!” She pulls out her phone and shows me the most MORTIFYING photo of my son with the most crazy bedhead. Thank you, Miss Pre-school teacher. -She is really wonderful and just adores our son. Aaaand- I now have the very best reason to start homeschooling. I mean, what do you even do but laugh it off. I made up some story that he won’t let us cut it. Suuuuuure.
You know you’re pregnant when…. fill in the blank. I baught this jar at around 4 pm yesterday. Around 4:15pm this is what was left.
Very very richly blessed that I have pickle cravings at the 12 week mark. Prayer and cravings are stemming the tide of worry. Thanks be to God that I have my family, my wonderful husband who loves and adores me, even when I’m not at my best and my lovely kids who make me smile each and every day.
