These Days

These Days:

- After one bite to try, I have not touched the delicious home-made boysenberry Creme Pie in the fridge, but I eat clementines and pears all day.

- I get great inspirations as I lay in bed at night, but by the morning I don't even remember to what they were related.

- Isabella is sleeping for 5-6 hour stretches at night and I still have to take a nap during the day.

- I, Kate, the Caffeine Addict, gets indigestion at the mere thought of coffee. Even with good creamer. *sad*

- When following a simple, 6 ingredient dinner that I have made a hundred times, I had to consult the recipe at least 15 times. I still forgot the parsley.

- I am currently re-washing a load of laundry because I forgot to transfer it last night. Again.

- I cried watching CSI.

- I could die for some Italian Spicy Pepper-Shooters.

- The package of yummy soft-baked cookies I got on sale (+ coupon!) are sitting, un-opened, on the top of the fridge. In plain site. For 5 days.

- I have not gained an ounce but none of my clothes fit quite the same.

- We have been doing a lot of walking, thoroughly enjoying the great weather, which makes both Bella and Mama very happy!

- My husband is my absolute HERO for working overtime around the house.

- I was downright gleeful upon waking up after 7 hours of straight sleep. Exuberant also comes to mind.

- My appreciation for my helpful, loving, spiritual mother-in-law almost made me cry with joy when she started stocking our freezer with ready-made meals.

- Have you ever noticed that when people have kids close together you mentally do the math to figure out just how far apart in age they are?

- I have drank so much peppermint tea lately I've been daydreaming about Christmas trees.

- It has taken me 4 days to write this post.

- I am re-washing that laundry AGAIN.

- I find myself starting at Isabella in utter amazement thinking, "again?"

.... In other words, I'm PREGNANT.

Okay, so just to share with you. As soon as I started reading. I was thinking. I think she is pregnant, and I just missed something somewhere. Well clearly, I didn't miss anything, but I was right. Congrats. So excited for you both, and for little Isabella being a big sister. How exciting.

Ahh, I am so excited for you. I have been thinking about you all day, so I had to add a post. I am so stoked for you. Maybe one day I will join the ranks of all you mothers, so I can live up to your Mother's Day blog. Maybe now we will have to come down and visit so we can meet Isabella before Baby #2 arrives.

YAY!!! That's awesome!

But be sure to enjoy just having ONE for awhile longer! It gets CRAZY in ways you can't imagine at present!

I am so so happy for you....Sara is hoping for a girl...or a boy and a girl...depending on when you ask her! May the twin-speak never cross her lips in the presence of her pregnant aunt!
