Simple Pleasures

Life has been a little blah lately and while it's easiest to wallow in my own misery (well, maybe not quite misery) I don't really want to. So instead I try to think of all the things I'm thankful, esp the simple things. After writing out a list of all my simple pleasures, it's hard to stay feeling blah.

  • Parker slept in his own bed all night long until 6:30. This is huge as he usually sneaks in our room about 1am and isn't the coziest to sleep with (he loves to head butt in his sleep).
  • A glass of half frozen milk with a splash of vanilla.
  • A few hours of snow, enough to play in before it melted.
  • After days of cloud, the sun peeked out for a very short while.
  • An organized playroom and kitchen.
  • My husband reaching over and rubbing my belly in the middle of the night.
  • Vanilla ice cream with fruit pieces and fruit juice on top.
  • Although I really needed a nap, I loved having peace and quiet to read a magazine while Parker napped today.

So it's not that many but even just these few pleasures made my day less blah. :)

34 weeks pregnant

I haven't taken a picture of me once yet during this pregnancy. Seeing as I'm getting close to the finish line, I thought I should get on that!

This is me at 34.1 weeks. I'm carrying so much higher than the last two but because baby is posterior (what is it with my kids liking this position best?!) my belly looks odd. It's a big ball on the top half that stops at my belly button and takes a huge dip on teh lower part. With Parker the nurses were able to tell he was posterior just by looking at my belly when I was laying down.
