Speaking of things I'm lucky for, I have been spending some time reminding myself of the things I'm thankful for during the end of this pregnancy. I have had such a smooth pregnancy, and a very very calm baby. I have never felt pain while he's moving. Discomfort here and there, but I love the way the movements feel, and I always smile when I feel him because while he kicks here and there, most of his movements are slow fluid stretches and rolling, and I love them. A most WONDERFUL husband, who has been beyond wonderful from the very instant I told him I was pregnant. I could never be more thankful for that. We are so so anxious to meet this little guy now. The anticipation is just really hard but so exciting.
I've had some funny obsessions recently, and I don't know if it is just that I'm really enjoying finding some time to do things I'm into, or if it's the pregnancy or a need for distraction or what. But things that currently make me tick:
BLOGS. I. Am. Obsessed. I have a number of them that I read every day, and I could spend hours doing it if I had the hours to do so. I just keep telling myself soon I won't have much time for them, so I might as well do them now. There are so so many blogs that I connect with, and it feels like I'm with company talking about something I'm into when I read them. I also love writing on this one. It's a nice outlet. I follow some pregnancy blogs, parenting, photography, cooking, some writers who are into all of those things, some who do artwork and sell on Etsy... which leads me to:
Etsy.com. Pretty sure I've mentioned my tendency to surf around this incredible website before. They have the most amazing selection of shops and hand made crafts I just could never describe it. So best thing would be to go take a look :)
Oatmeal with banana and agave nectar. (with some milk)
Bananas in general.
Fruit in a can. (This has started in the last week and a half. Something is oddly appealing about fruit from a can unfortunately, and I'm hopeless against it. It started with one night when I had this desperate need for canned pears. Not sure I've ever eaten canned pears but I tell ya, I sure do now!)
Drive through coffee shops. (Delicious and also reminds me of chatting with my sisters, which is another thing I have been doing a lot of. Nothing beats sitting in a coffee shop, but driving through and having one on the go is fun in another way.)
Broccoli, Tofu, Sesame Oil on top of whole wheat angel hair. (Not sure why, as I make this in the most bland and boring way, but I want it every single day. I can't explain it, I just go with it. Yum.)
Pixiwoo. These sisters are makeup artists who do online tutorials, and although I'm not into extravagent makeup, I still enjoy it and have fun with it and even though I use nothing that these women show, I still have so much fun watching the tutorials. Weird, I know.
All things baby. Naturally. I daydream all the time now, wondering what he looks like, imagining our days together, thinking of things I'd like to get or make for him. I can't wait to hold him, to smell him, kiss his little cheeks and get to know him. Not much longer.
I'll write again this week, hopefully a more clear minded post. I'm exhausted today, hence the randomness that was this post. I'm off to re-heat my neck wrap for my back. It's wonderful.
