Our small house has shrunk. I’ve found myself bumping into things that have been there for a long time, but I swear the hallways are getting smaller! Is this the Twilight Zone, or some kind of enchanted building? It figures- we’re renting. What if the landlord is really an evil wizard who cheats unsuspecting families into signing leases on houses that appear to be big enough but has secretly put a curse on the house so that it will slowly shrink back to a pea-small size as time goes by?
I’m sure it has nothing to do with my pregnancy. ;-) Imagining your house is enchanted is much more pleasant than knowing you’re slowly growing bigger and bigger and… who knows when it will stop?
I’ve been feeling baby Isaac growing stronger every day. He is SO active! I don’t remember my little girl being this active this early in the pregnancy, seriously. He kicks, elbows, does complete flips, and pokes me all the time. Yesterday there was an elbow or something poking me in the stomach and I tried to push it back so that it wasn’t hurting me, but he didn’t move! Great, is this a sign of stubbornness to come? I had hoped for a more laid back baby than Emma has been, lol. Oh well.
I’ve been craving and eating so much sugar, I’m sure it can’t be good for me. I try not to but… well, you know how cravings are. They take control. I never eat regular candy but I’ve been wanting things like Runts and Chewy Spree. Weird. Maybe because they’re a bit sour.
We found a park about 15 minutes drive from our house that has trails galore, trees and nature and everything I love! I really love the smell of dirt and want to stay there forever. I am so not a city girl. Actually I live in a small town and I’m blessed to have a yard, but we live right on a busy road. I want to live somewhere where I can go outside and I don’t feel like the whole world is watching me. Someday, I hope!
I feel so fat. I dread weighing myself at my next doctor’s appointment and seeing how much I’ve gained. My rear and hips have gained as much as my stomach I think! That’s just sad. *sigh* I have started doing the Walk Away the Pounds fitness DVD just to keep myself exercising. It’s the 2-mile walk, though I only make it through one mile right now. I know that walking is great exercise when you’re pregnant. Hopefully it helps! It does give me a boost of energy so I’m glad I’m doing it.
Emma is able to write the letter “A” now! Is that common for 2-year-olds? I was impressed and even got it on video. Then suddenly she started writing them upside down, LOL. I guess it’s easier for her. But I figure an A is an A. She LOVES to learn, it’s amazing watching her. She practically teaches herself! She can point out and name any letter and can count up to 20. Seriously, it took like no effort on my part. I think she must get that from me because I am an avid reader and have been reading to her from birth. I learned to read really early, too – my mom said she got tired of me pointing to words and sentences and asking “What does that say?” and so taught me to read from then on. It’s funny how some kids love to read and some don’t care at all.
I love Chinese food. Fried rice, orange chicken, and crab puffs to be specific.
Next month the new Harry Potter movie comes out! Yippee! Now that’s a good excuse to have a date night, right? And how long has it been since I’ve been alone with my husband? Um… er… I’ll have to get back to you on that because I just can’t remember.
I’m looking at two handbags on Etsy that I want – I can’t decide which fabric to get! What do you think?
