It's Easy Being Green

I grew up a pretty picky eater. I didn't start liking hamburgers and salads until I met Travis (a few years after actually) and I ate plain cheese pizza until I really understood that mushrooms, tomatoes, and spinach are the best things you could add to make your pizza the most delicious. While I did miss out on a lot of amazing foods, one of the foods I feel that I really missed out on (and every time I take a bite of one I say to myself oh, man, I really missed out!) is an avocado and even more so guacamole! Oh my goodness, what was I thinking?! Yeah, the color may be baby poop green and it may not have a real taste unless paired with something, but boy, oh, boy, when you do pair it with just the right ingredients you have a flavor sensation in your mouth that you could just die and go to heaven for!!! Ok, enough of my ranting about delicious food--can you tell I'm pregnant?! 

So while my little Juice Drop is the size of an avocado this week I think I may have to pick up a few from the store and let my taste buds have a hay day! :)

How far along? 16 Weeks
Total weight gain: finally bought a scale! And according to the scale I've gained 2 pounds since last appointment which was 4 weeks ago so total weight gain is 4 whole pounds!
Maternity clothes? still just the leggings. I've been able to still squeeze into my summer shorts and old jeans turned capris but my good jeggings are done until after the baby comes I'm sad to say 
Stretch marks? Nope :)
Sleep: what's that? With not being able to sleep on my back along with my stomach, my only option is my side and it's not working very well. Plus any sudden movements I make I feel like I'm pulling something in my stomach. Insomnia will be setting in very soon I'm afraid. Oh yeah, and the nightly waking up to have to pee
Best moment this week: getting to spend it with my bro and sis with it being the last time I'll see Stef until Juice Drop arrives
Miss Anything? sleeping through the night!
Movement: maybe, still don't know if it's Juice Drop moving or just me hungry 
Food cravings: whole grains and whole wheat but I feel like that's just me loving my carbs haha
Anything making you queasy or sick: nope
Gender: hopefully we'll know at the next appointment which is next Thursday!! Stay tuned :)
Labor Signs: no
Symptoms: still peeing like a racehorse, not sleeping, cramping in my abdomen from organs moving and uterus expanding, eyes are dry and sensitive
Belly Button in or out? still in but when I'm bloated it looks like it could pop out at any moment
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: happy! until I get hungry or tired then the mood swings hit hard!
Looking forward to: our trip to the mountains next week with the Auyers and Turners and of course hoping to find out if Juice Drop is a girl or boy!!

I am so proud of my sister, Stef (aka Aunt Fanie) it's not even funny! She has grown into a beautiful woman after God's heart and the way she has matured in the last few years is astounding! I will miss her so much these next 6 months especially with her niece or nephew growing inside of me but I know God is taking her to a place where he can strengthen her and prepare her to love with an even greater love for Him and His people. I'm so excited about this next adventure in her life and my prayer is that God works mightily in and through her and she can be a light for the people in Hawaii and wherever He stations her after. Another prayer: she's able to return before Juice Drop arrives so we don't have to Skype her in the delivery room and she'll be able to hold that little babe only a few minutes after he/she enters the world! 

Check out what she'll be doing for YWAM and PhotogenX here and check out her amazing photog skills on her Facebook here!

I won't be mad if Juice Drop looks like little Stefi (on the right)
We can't help but laugh hysterically when we're together.
I miss living 5 minutes from her.

Juice Drop says Have a Great Day!
