Reading: Baby Books!! I am currently reading the Baby Whisperer Solves All Your Problems by Tracy Hogg, which has been absolutely amazing and I am taking notes like crazy. I want to read Bringing up BeBe by Pamela Druckerman so I am going to look to see if I can find it in the library. Its about an American journalist who moves to France with her British husband and how she incorporates the French way of raising her kids into the American way. Just her thoughts, opinions, what she likes. I am really curious to see what it is about. 

Feeling Thankful: for our family. We have been so blessed since we have been back to Canada. Everyone has helped us so much, and is helping us as we get our lives sorted here and as we prepare for our daughter to join us! We have been provided with winter coats (Thank You, MOM & DAD), food, a place to stay, baby items, transportation when we didn’t have a car, love, support and encouragement. We would not be so calm if it hasn’t been for ALL of you. You all know who you are. We love you. 

Watching: We just watched Catching Fire! OH my goodness. It was so good. They did such a good job adapting from the book. I cannot believe that I have to wait a whole year before we get to see the last movie! It was so good though. I was so sad because I had to leave during the middle of the movie to go to the washroom - this has been the first movie that I have had to leave to use the washroom. I would have been fine but lovebug enjoyed the loud noises from the movie so much that she decided to show it by dancing on my bladder. 

Anticipating: We’ve been waiting, anticipating, her arrival. ;) Yes I wrote this last time. But it is so true. There is nothing more that we are anticipating except for her arrival. 

Listening To: My husband and his brother playing video games. Boys will be boys. 

Working On: my knitting. Finally I have yarn! The only thing is I am in such an odd mood that somedays I don’t feel like knitting at all. There I said it. Weird. Weird. I have so many projects in my mind that I want to have done before baby arrives, but I am also not going to stress myself. I am slowly working on them and if they don’t get done, they don’t get done. Not the end of the world by any means. 

Loving: Honestly I have to say that I love being pregnant. I really do. I have no complaints whatsoever. I sometimes just get so excited about meeting our little bundle of joy that I complain a bit. I haven’t been majorly uncomfortable, have only had a few nights where I haven’t slept the greatest, but overall I am so happy. My body loves being pregnant. I feel like since I was so in tune with my body before pregnancy that understanding my body has really helped with being pregnant. My body has craved foods that are healthy for it like tomatoes & grapefruits, and has turned me off things bad for my body, such as coffee, chocolate (overindulgence) and other sweet things. I am not a fan of ice cream or other dairy items (except for milk) and have just been loving nuts, veggies & fruit. 

Eating: Since I am not currently eating anything at the moment, I am going to tell you what I want to be eating. I just recently received as a gift Gwyneth Paltrow’s “It’s All Good”  for Christmas and I want to make and eat EVERY single recipe that she has in this book. Her recipes are to die for and the photography makes me wish I knew her so I could cook with her in the kitchen. Right now I want her Veggie Dumplings, Fresh Ginger Tea, Lentil Salad with Mustard & Tomatoes, and her Banana “Ice Cream” with Sweet-and-Salty Roasted Almonds. mm Cannot wait to have my own kitchen and to be in charge of the groceries! 

Feeling: Blessed. Absolutely 100% blessed.
