Let’s have a date…

If we were to sit down and have coffee, well, if we have ever done this before then you know I wouldn’t be getting coffee.

I would probably just drink water. Lately, I have wanted an Arnold Palmer (preferably from McAlisters), but I don’t want our little babe to get all hyped up from the caffeine. So, you would order your delicious drink and I would sit with my water. 

I would ask how you’ve been. You would probably return the question.

Lately, I’ve been craving something. I know that isn’t too crazy for a pregnant woman to do. But, it is a little abnormal that I am not craving food. I am craving something else. I have such a longing for mountains. Summer time was always my favorite time of year in the Pacific Northwest and Montana. Here in Texas…not so much. 

I might tell you that pneumonia is a pain in the booty. But I am so grateful to be getting over it, and even more grateful that my little one didn’t get it. 

I would look at you with a gleam in my eyes, and tell you that a year ago, that little one was born. Gracie is turning one year old this week, and I am so glad. I am ready to be out of the infant stage. I know that some mommies cry at this milestone, but I welcome it with open arms. Besides, I don’t have much time to miss having an infant around, another one will be joining us in November. 

I might even invite you to Gracie’s birthday party this week. I am planning a firework theme. Because, that is what she is. My little firework. 

So, to YOU, my friend reading this. I will ask the original question; how have you been? How are you doing?

    Sounds like a time of anticipation for you and your family. What a sweet little Grace. I have a little Grace too, but she’s my granddaughter. I’ve been through those sweet stages you are now in, and ask God’s blessings on you.

    Happy Birthday to Gracie and Blessings on you and your family. Thanks for the coffee, as I will have a cup or two then drink water the rest of the day. I am having cataract surgery tomorrow and I must not eat arter midnight and only a sip of coffee tomorrow, then water until eleven and nothing after that. They tell me it will be easy and I will be able to see better after this. Thank you for sharing at Tell me a Story and do return as the new entries will be open Monday evening around 5:00 PM.
