I cannot have it, therefore, I want it.

Friends, I am pregnant.
Pregnant people are limited to what they are supposed to eat and what they are to avoid.
For instance: tuna and other large fishes are discouraged. I'm quoting several parenting books and magazines when I say "two 6-ounce servings a week at the most" is permissible. I have already had my "two servings" this week, and now I want more. Grrr.
  On a brighter note, my son is becoming quite the ham.
  Yeah, he's cool as a bean in mommy's shades. He is also becoming so very verbal! Right now, it's mainly gibberish and funny noises, but he'll insert an actual word here and there. If he sees the cat or dogs, he'll tell me. If he sees a fly, or any bug for that matter, he'll use his first Afrikaans word, which is fly in English and sounds like "flea" with a spitting, hacking noise at the end in Afrikaans. He just makes the spitting noise. It's adorable. Another word he thinks he knows so well is "snack", or "bach/ baum" depending on if I say snack first or he asks for one first. Gosh, I sure do love my talkative, stubborn boy. We call him "Godzilla" often because of his love of moving furniture and knocking stuff over. We're also working on discouraging that.
    My father came over this morning and went on a power walk with me and Boogie-boy around our neighborhood. Even though it wasn't nearly the highest temperature we are expected to reach today, we both ended up sweaty and gross. Noah was fine. We chatted about this, that, and the other and had a good ole time. I love my daddy.
     Now, friends, the countdown until I see the Skinners again:  7 days!
  To end this post, I shall announce the best of good news. Yesterday, Noah took a morning nap and a 2 and a half hour long afternoon nap!
(That's the chorus of angels that's been singing in my head ever since) Now I hope I haven't ruined this majestic turn of events by jinxing it.
   Oh, and BTW, this weekend is going to be AWESOME!
