Food Aversions?

Everyone always asks if you have any food aversions while you're pregnant. And I've always said no.

However, I think I discovered I had one. Honestly, I thought I had just worn myself out on plain M&Ms. Anyone who has known me for the past 3 plus decades would know how much I generally love them. And how I can't usually go more than a day or two without a bag handful. However, I've shied away from them recently. I'd gladly eat chocolate, don't get me wrong, but I was choosing to pass over plain M&Ms entirely rather than eat them. They weren't doing it for me. In fact, I thought I had just eaten them to the point that I was simply over them. So I thought.

Turns out I must've had a food aversion to plain M&Ms while I was pregnant. Because in the two weeks since the sweet P has arrived, I've eaten more than enough plain M&Ms to make up for a 10 month hiatus. It appears my willpower once again doesn't have a chance against those suckers.

This isn't going to be good for losing my baby weight. (Neither are the icing filled cookies, but that's another food category entirely.)

She's Here!

Our little girl made a slightly early debut into the world this past weekend!

She was born on Sunday with 10 perfect fingers and 10 perfect toes (albeit on huge feet - her shoe selection might lack a little in a few years...). She is the exact spitting image of T as a newborn, which means she looks just like daddy. A little disconcerting to see her in pink because I almost have to remind myself that it's our little gal and not T.

This is about all I can write at the moment because she's decided not to sleep this morning, and has finally decided to snore, only if I hold her. It's quite cute, though makes getting anything, even typing with just my left-hand, kind of impossible.

More to come another, more productive time!
Our baby girl.

T meeting sweet P

I mean really, could YOU tell the two apart? Eerie!

This one is T, by the way.
