7 Quick Takes (5)

Head over to Conversion Diary for more Quick Takes...
We received copies of the Envoy featuring my hubby in the mail today.  If you subscribe to Envoy, check it out.  It's a great article and, as always, a great magazine--packed with interesting, informative, inspiring, and fun articles about the Faith.

As my belly begins to show a teeny bit, the reality that we will have another wee one in the house in less than six months is becoming more real.  Since we aren't finding out the baby's gender until the birth this time around, I feel like there is little I can {have to} do to prepare.  We have all of the essentials...except girl clothes.  So if the baby is a girl she may have to sleep in blue pjs for a few nights until we can assemble a proper wardrobe for her!

Speaking of pregnancy, for those of you who have experienced it, what is your best trick for helping with morning sickness?  With Augustine, I was naseous for the first 20 weeks, so I wouldn't be surprised if it lingers for a few more weeks this time too.  I don't have any tricks though--aside from indulging in my cravings, which only helps very temporarily {and is getting quite expensive!}.  My old go-to was Jolly Ranchers, but I got sick of them about 10 weeks ago...

I just joined a book club with some of the ladies from my mom's group at St. Benedict's.  Though I completely lost my passion for it during high school and college when I was reading text books non-stop, I love to read!  My first meeting is next week, and we will be discussing The Missing by Tim Gautreaux.  If you choose to read it, be warned that the very first pages are a little slow, but it picks up quickly and then you won't be able to put it down!

Today is my sister, and best girl-friend in the world's, birthday!  Happy Birthday, Cait!!  I love you!
Ironically, I have never very big into music...but my little dude, on the other hand, loves.loves.loves music!  Of course he likes the toddler jiggles about silly things and body parts and animal noises.  But he can also bust a move to anything with a good beat.  And he can get all sentimental with me when we listen to slower, more thoughtful songs.  During such songs, I pick him up and we dance together with his precious head on my shoulder.  He sweetly looks up once in awhile to see if I am crying {about half the time I am--I will blame the pregnancy hormones for the next six months and then just admit to being totally sentimental when it comes to holding my baby that close and singing about romantic/sad/relatable things together}.

It's 8:42 pm, and I am ready to go crawl into bed.  Being pregnant with a nursing toddler is tough that I wouldn't trade for the world.  Good night everyone, and have a great weekend!

Just chillin with his dog :)

  1. Oh, I wish I had some words of wisdom with the feeling nauseous thing. I had it a little bit...but it was the dizziness and extreme fatigue that I had more of. I suppose the pendulum swings this way and that when it comes to complicated business in pregnancy. I do remember reading once that if you smelled a would help offset the 'pukey' feeling. Sorry for saying pukey. Not even sure if I spelled it right if it makes you feel any better ;)

    Augustine is a cutie patootie by the way! Many prayers your way as the months progress!
