Miracles Everywhere

I liked this video because I think this is sort of what's happening inside my tummy these days.

Food food food

Sorry about all the food posts, its not my fault that my whole day revolves around what in the world I can find to eat that won't sick me out. The weirdest part is that most of my cravings this time are the same as last time when I was prego with Scarlet. I wish I would have recorded them so I'd know what to eat this time but I'm going to do that now.

Things I buy when I'm morning sick that I NEVER buy under normal circumstances (notice the less food-like and more plastic the better):

1. Power Bars
2. Cheese Whiz
3. Ginger Ale
4. Big Turks
5. Cream of Wheat
6. Dill pickle rice cracker minis
7. French Toast
8. Apple Jelly

Just making this list made me want to faint...

My last confession is that I secretly really want coffee. Like a latte. Where in thunder is that coming from??!! I've never even tasted coffee in my life. I stood in the coffee aisle at Extra Foods (apparently there is one, although I never noticed it before) and just looked at all the different coffee beans. Then, I proceeded to the small appliance aisle and I almost bought an expresso/foaming machine. I'm NUTS.

Marbles are lost

I went home for a week of leisure and leisure it was. My mom let me sleep in everyday and she changed ALL Scarlet's diapers too (only a momma would do this for me). Evidently when I am pregnant my persian side really comes out because all I want to eat right now, in my morning-sick-all-day-state, is my dads persian food. My family was questioning my queasiness when I requested ghormeh sabzi for dinner (not exactly your usual pregnant girl craving) but it was just what I needed.

This picture is what I woke up to for breakfast around 10:30-ish each day.

Then around 11 pm dad would put together a spread of more fruit and breads and cheese and balsamic vinegar for dipping and that kind of stuff.

 Falling in love with cousin Isabelle

I love how Eli and Isabelle are looking at each other. 

Jane, for some reason, wears a ninja thingy at all times. I think Mariah secretly wants one too.

A New Blog on the Block


So far Charlie is the only one who has posted and I think he is borderline addicted already.

Its a miracle! Timmy commented on my blog (he doesn't use cell phones or Bookface). I feel super important right now :0)
