because of how crazy cold it has been up here, we spend most nights snuggled on our couch and I've probably eaten about 40 pounds of air popped popcorn. I just realize that I still say it's cold "up here". As opposed to Southern Utah I suppose. I will forever be a Hurricanite. Yes, people from Hurricane are called Hurricanites. Go H-town.
I felt the baby move yesterday for the first time :) I'm around 17 1/2 weeks so I guess it's a little early, but I'm not surprised because judging from the size of Jack and I, this baby will rival Goliath. I've heard that the first time you feel your baby move it resembles the flutter of a butterfly or a little nudge. I'm pretty sure my baby Goliath full on headbutted me. There was no butterfly involved. Either way, it was pretty exciting.
I try to eat well, but fail most of the time and end up just eating what sounds good. I feel like there is enough to deal with being pregnant without having to give up desserts also; and for some reason I crave carbs always, especially white bread :/ I don't even know why I keep reading my pregnancy nutrition books, they just make me feel guilty! Who wants to eat anchovies, nori, or tofu even when they feel great?! I have become the queen of justification (ice cream is, after all, a good source of calcium. Popcorn has some folate in it. Cupcakes raise my low blood sugar.) I can't have been too bad though because I've only gained three pounds since I got pregnant.
Tucker hates the snow. Every time I let him out to go to the bathroom I pretty much have to chuck him out the door. He then skirts along the side of the house where there is the least snow and tries to stand on only one front paw and one back paw so there is the least amount of him touching the snow. I don't blame him, I hate snow. I don't feel like I've been fully warm in two weeks.
I am crazy in love with my husband. We had such a fun night last night. We decided that for New Year's Eve we would stay in, just the two of us (I didn't want to risk getting sick since I start back at the hospitals this week so we didn't go to Dave's), and had so much fun, as usual. We made 7-layer dip together and grilled hot ham and cheese sandwiches, then I went and put on some clothes I would have worn on a college date back in the day (they sure don't look the same on a pregnant body, but my Buba turned a blind eye) and then I went out the front door and rang the doorbell. Jack opened it, looked surprised, but then I explained that I was there for our New Year's Eve date. He politely invited me in and gave me a hug. We then watched a movie on our "date", ate our food, talked alot, played Wii, and made out :) we finally hit the sack at about 3am. I always have so much fun with him and after almost 4 years of knowing each other, hanging out never gets old.
