 Numbers

2- weeks left in my first trimester 4 - lbs put on so far 6- weeks till I "get" to start my weekly progesterone shots 20- injections I will receive (Thank you Lord for the little bit o extra padding being added to my hips where those injections will go!) 10- weeks until I find out if I will be the mom to all boys!! 4- number of fits thrown by Noe yesterday. There seems to be a bit of a "passing of the baton" going on here at our house as Jay becomes more obedient and able to be reasoned with. The previously sweet and very mellow two year old of the house is now trying out his independent and stubborn streak. 0- things we absolutely have to get done today. I couldn't be more pleased to have a relaxed Saturday with Dave home! 1- hour that Dave let me sleep this morning after the boys woke up. Heavenly! 3- new food cravings. Humus, baby carrots, and cucumber. 4- loads of clean laundry that needs folded. I'm focusing on the fact that it is ALL clean!! 6- days till my parents get here to spend a long weekend with us!! -Not like I am counting or any thing. :) 3- the pants size that has been evicted from my dresser, packed into a box, and put into the closet. I will not even look at them for at least another year. Will they ever be reinstated? I'm choosing not to care at this point. 2- bloggy friends I may get the opportunity of meeting this spring or summer. Excited would be an understatement! 6- little hands that helped me make a low carb cheesecake for Dave yesterday. 34- degrees this morning when Dave and I took all the boys outside to swing. 10- minutes we lasted outside before just about freezing our toushies off. Spring? Hello? Are you there? Somewhere? 4- days this past week that the boys were cooped up inside all day. 22,825- hits to this blog since I started it a year ago. Really? 223- posts I've written. 1- cup of coffee I've had this past week. Really. I'm cutting back a bit due to some trouble sleeping. 65- milligrams of extra iron added daily, due to being very anemic. 3- people that God has made it extremely clear that I have yet to truly forgive. Ouch. Countless - moments that I have grown and learned this past week.

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Yay for a possible meeting! ;)

Look at you with your healthy new cravings - if you eat like that throughout your pregnancy, you'll be back in your pants in no time after you deliver. But like you said...not even something to think about at this point!

And sister, you need to share the low-carb cheesecake recipe. I'm hurtin' over here on this awful South Beach Diet. :)
