Baby Bell-Pepper, that is.

It has been a few weeks since I've given and update on the little baby project Derrick and I have brewing. According to Babycenter, our little one is about 5 1/2 inches long and weighs about 7 oz-roughly the length of a bell pepper. I am at 18 weeks and am really starting to feel better.I am having more good days and less nausous days each week so that is a big reason to celebrate (i.e.,eat) for me. Another big change that has happened as my nasuea has started to subside is my appetite has started to erupt.(thanks for the word suggestion, honey) And that's probably an understatement. For example, this afternoon when Derrick was home for lunch, before he left for work he was watching me prepare my 2nd piece of sugar toast. He then said this:

D: "So, let me get this straight. You have had 1 1/2 hot dogs with the buns, part of a bag of carrots, a half a box of macaroni and cheese spirals, a bowl of peaches, and a piece of sugar toast. And now you are making another piece of toast?"

My hormones must really be balancing out because I didn't even yell at him or burst into tears. I just smiled and said, "yep, I sure am!

I'm glad you are starting to feel better! I bet it's fun eating whatever you want, whenever you want it! Can you imagine eating for 8? I hope I get to experience it someday!
