cravings & such: this week, i am thinking that our little peanut was into dairy. i was very happy eating all things cheese. and, i think that i enjoyed two or three...okay four...ice cream cones. i am currently obsessed with just plain ol' chocolate ice cream [häagen-dazs, please]. again, nothing too shocking to report. i am a big fan of cheese and ice cream most of the time. this section will really get interesting if i start craving raw tomatoes with a side of cucumbers and piles of cilantro on top. [yuck]
the bump: right now, i just look like a ate a big meal. we aren't to the cute little bump stage yet. okay, baby...it is time to make yourself known. i am ready and waiting for that little bump to officially pop out. you can do it...
cool & cute things: baby is almost three inches long and weighs nearly an ounce. and, baby's body is staring to catch up his/her oversized head. if it is a girl, she now has more than two million eggs in her ovaries! how they all fit in there, i will never know. God is so intricate and amazing. yes, the creation of the universe was quite impressive but i think that the creation of a tiny person inside of another person [me!] is where He really gets to show His grandeur. i love it when God gets to show off :)
new things: baby has fingerprints!
meaningful moments: putting all my thoughts about our little peanut down on "paper". i started writing letters to the little one so that i can put them all into a book along with pictures and highlights from the pregnancy. i hope that it will be a cherished memento for our little family.
the countdown: 189 days to go!
