Tight pants, taco's, and mood swings.

My pants are officially uncomfortable around my waist...but only when I am sitting. I may have just popped a button. There's a baby growin' in there! This week (12 weeks along) our baby is as big as a lime. I have still had quite a bit of morning sickness, but it has gotten a bit more managable during the afternoons. That is when I have the most energy, and usually the only time that I get anything accomplished.

Strangly, the only thing that I have been craving--or more the only thing that doesn't sound completely disgusting to me lately, is a taco. I have made a couple of Taco Bell runs in the past couple of weeks, and made a giant pot of taco soup on Sunday. I am totally confused by this craving, because beef sounds HORRIBLE to me. I don't know why it makes a difference to have taco seasoning, but hey! Whatever works! :)

Apparently, I have been a bit "moody" as well. I, personally, think that I have been completely reasonable...but Ryan very lovingly told me yesterday that he was going to start calling me "Rice Krispy" because lately I have had a tendency to SNAP, CRACKLE, & POP! I proved him right by telling him, "If this is the WORST thing that you have to deal with during this pregnancy, you are SO LUCKY." In a fairly snappy voice, then stopped, thought a minute, and started laughing hysterically. I may have some crazy pregnant hormones. Maybe. :)

Addison has been talking to my stomach lately...she says "HI BABY! It Addie! Wata doin'? Night night baby." It is so sweet, I can't wait to see her be a big sister! We started potty training a week before her birthday, and she has been doing amazing. I almost can say that she is potty trained (minus night time...we haven't gotten there yet).

Today my Grandparents are driving down from Canada with a special delivery for Addison...a new bed! I found a bed from Pottery Barn that I LOVED, but it was super expensive. There is a pattern online to make it yourself though, and my Grandpa offered to make it for me (after a bit of hinting on my part). He, of course, made it even BETTER than Pottery Barn's by adding a back, and sides, and by making the design more sturdy. I am so excited to get it up in Addie's room!

So there it first pregnancy update. I am sure you will all be tired of hearing about it by the time I get this little one out! :)

Oh I am so jealous of your too tight of pants and taco cravings! I am also so happy for you. I wanted to share this blog with you. A girl I know just stated it and its for people with callings in young women and different ideas to share to help with your calling. You said you needed advice so you should check this out. Its brand new but I bet it will be good.

It's been way too long since I've seen you!! Maybe one of these afternoons when you aren't busy we will have to get together... go to the park or something (if the warm weather ever comes).
