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?
