Sleepless in Salt Lake

It's about 5:30 in the morning and I've been up since 4 am.  I woke up to some odd sensation in my lower abdomen.  I'm officially 17 weeks today, so I guess it could be Holden* kicking but I mostly just felt like my naval had expanded and hardened overnight.  And I don't think this is my normal "food baby" type symptoms.

Speaking of food babies... I feel a little like Phoebe from friends when she tells Joey "The Baby Wants Meat!"  I made a pot roast for dinner a couple of days ago and it was slow cooking for a while (also because if I take it out and let it get cold I'll see the nasty fat congeal and most likely loose my protein shake)... but anyway, I made a roast thinking Danny would be so stoked red meat graced our house for the 1st time this year (I don't think that's an overstatement)... and last night I was totally craving -- not only the flavor -- but I actually had like 5 bites of the thing.  Which may not sound like much, but for a gal that gave up hamburgers at 12 and spent part of her collegiate (and post collegiate) years as a vegan/vegetarian, it's a pretty significant step. 

I want our baby to eat meat... I mean, hormone free and organic beef is obviously preferable, but I'd like him to "eat meat sparingly." I picky enough for this entire family.  I hope he takes after his father on this one.  I can deal with it if the kid's only real aversion is celery (yeah, Danny doesn't dig it.  Who doesn't dig celery?  It's practically a non-food, right?) 

Anyway, as far as the food's concerned: whatever baby wants, baby gets.  As long as it's not fried chicken. 

Namaste. I think I'll head to the yoga studio and get in an hour of "observation" time.  Just 6 hours to go and I'll be certified!

*Yep, it's a boy. Read the previous post for a few more details on the little guy.

Sweet. We have the go ahead to take Holden to McDonalds then? I'm pretty sure their beef is hormone-free/organic.

No answer? I'll take that as a yes.

That is so awesome. Aren't ultrasounds the greatest thing ever? Can you imagine being our mom's and not having that? Wow... times are a changing! Beef is great, your little guy will let you know that more and more! I loved steak and A-1 when I was prego with Josh!

You are such a riot, I had no idea you were such good veggie lady. I eat whatever I can get my hands on so that is not good. this baby wants and needs more protein so I am working on that. I actually feel so much better now so no more complaining from me! I just want to know what it is so I can start planning the rearrangement of my house. One kid down, one over and one new one in the nursery. When did life get so crazy?! I am really happy for you and Danny. Congrats!
