Frogs, and Ice cream, and week 26!

Just a couple days ago I came home from work and heard the frogs singing in the small pond behind our back yard.  They made their beautiful noise all night long.  The sun was warm on my face, the flowers are blooming, baby girl is kicking, and I think she senses something beautiful is out here waiting for her :)

But right now it’s storming like hell, and it just finished hailing for about 5 minutes straight!  The ground is covered in white.  Spring is HERE :)

I’ve been drinking milk like CRAZY.  Almost a gallon of skim milk a day.  Two full days do not pass without Aaron buying milk.  I guess I’m craving the calcium.  I’ve always been a milk drinker, but now I can never get enough!  I tried organic milk, which I know is better for the baby, but it’s very expensive.  We would wrack up a huge monthly bill on organic milk at the rate I’m going.  So it’s back to regular.

I got to see my sweet Kelsey at work.  She is my co-worker’s daughter, and I’ve known her since she was a baby.  For 11 years I’ve got to watch her grow up.  She’s getting taller by the minute, and looks more like a teenager now.  It’s funny,  I never would have thought that someday she would get to see my own little baby :)   Even when baby girl is born, and I leave my job for good,  I will always stop in to visit everyone.  Kelsey, if you’re reading this… HI BEAUTIFUL! ♥

I am pretty much convinced my husband is the funniest man on the planet.   I was studying History on the couch in the living room the other night.  Aaron was sitting next to me eating ice cream.  All of the sudden I heard him groan, “Nnnn!  NNNEH!!”  I looked up quickly, alarmed only for a half-second until I realized what he had done.  His top lip was stuck to the spoon!  His eyes were wide, he was pulling on the spoon, and his lip just stretched further!  I completely lost it!  I laughed so hard I almost peed on the couch!  Really.  I had to run to the bathroom!   How does someone hurt themselves eating ice cream?  Leave it to my husband to accomplish this one.  Heaven forbid if our daughter is anything like him, I have my work cut out for me.  I’m going to have to watch her like a hawk when she gets her first bowl of ice cream.  Goodness.

This is the bassinet from Pottery Barn that my mom bought me.  GORGEOUS.

This Monday is my long awaited ultrasound to check and see if the baby’s Choroid Plexus Cysts (CPCs) are gone.  I was forewarned that it could be linked to Trisomy 18, a chromosomal disorder,  but in most cases these cysts go away all on their own with no negative effects on baby.  I am also getting a glucose tolerance test done to test for gestational diabetes.  I HATE needles, so I am not looking forward to this test.  Keep us in your prayers!
