My newborn’s not a newborn anymore! *Sniff*

Today was our final appointment with the midwife.  It was sad to say goodbye.  She said maybe we would be seeing each other sooner rather than later, insinuating that baby #2 may not be long in the making.  That is when the cold sweats set in 😉

Henry has gained 1.5 pounds in two weeks.  Christ Almighty!  I wonder:  Does this mean I have lost 1.5 pounds in two weeks?  I don’t think that’s how it works, but wouldn’t it be lovely if it did!

She noticed that he is getting that baby pudge in his legs and seems much more alert.  She even saw him smile!  It is so wonderful to see these positive changes (the main reason I decided to have a child was the baby pudge alone!), but at the same time it is tough to see him get older.  I already think he is growing up too fast!  Wait, I renege that statement.  He is growing up too fast, except for the “only sleeping for 1.5 hours at a time” part.  His sleeping habits can mature as quickly as possible, thank you very much!

Since I haven’t ventured out at all since our major snowfall, I only realized this morning that I left my winter boots at work!!!!  In a closet that was demolished during some recent construction!!!! This means I have no winter boots!!!! Exclamation points are necessary!!!!  Because we have a lot of snow!!!!

We made a stop at Mark’s Work Wearhouse so I could buy boots, then we went to East Side Mario’s for lunch (soup, salad, and bread combo for $7.99), and then we made one final – and all important – stop at Starbucks.  It was my first Tall Bold in almost two months and it was WONDERFUL.

I wish!

Now we are nestled back at home and will hibernate until Saturday.  Henry is asleep on my chest in his Moby wrap.  I am sufficiently caffeinated.  All is right in the world.

    So I have significantly cut back my caffeine intake this pregnancy but I am loving the effects of it if I go to starbucks. I get SO much done and totally feel like I am on hyperdrive all day!

      I was shocked to notice the change myself since I look at his face 22 hours a day 😉 I feel like now, in week 6, I am really feeling more balanced and chill with this motherhood thing. It is pretty amazing!

What happens when you love to eat healthy (and some unhealthy!) food, love to live frugally, and love to write? You start a food blog, of course. Of course!

Eating well and living frugally does not always come easy, but Lord help me, I am trying! This blog will detail my endeavor to live the best life possible. This will include pictures of my cats, odes to almond butter, and the general miscellany that makes up my life. Enjoy!
