Apparently last, this and next week my little guy is putting all his energy into growing "thick" instead of "length-wise" - so the fruit remains papaya.

This week has so quickly passed by I'm at a loss as to what to record. This week he has put in the effort to make himself known. I have definitely felt moving...little quick flips or something - because the placenta's position a lot of his moving around is "muted" but this week he must be feeling more aggressive as I'm noticing him more and more. Even Franklin was able to feel him a couple of days ago while just resting his hand on my tummy...before he would have to press down a bit and almost would have to hold his own breath to make sure all his senses were concentrated on picking up movement.

Today has been very funny....I woke this morning and my stomach was like a lopsided was a few inches difference on my left side as compared to my right...the little guy was figuring something out...and he did it again just about nap time. I think I've mentioned before that Franklin lays down to sing to the baby? Just ABC's (he could not recall any lullabies) and twice now the baby seems (to me) to be snuggling towards him by the time he ends the song.

I've left behind my mega craving #2 for this pregnancy. There's a little soup shop (everything fresh/from scratch) that has been keeping one particular soup on the menu for me (seriously...the guy is making it special for me once a week when it's only supposed to be on once every 3 weeks, LOL) - Spring Pea & Mint. This week I couldn't finish the bowl...I feel so badly that I just don't want anymore. The fellow has been super nice keeping me in stock. Same thing happened with my tomato day I thought to myself that tomatoes and tomato products (ketchup) were just not appealing...that one lasted an entire trimester, the soup a little longer. I still can't manage anything white. After two or three months of nothing, I tried to eat some of my favorite yogurt and couldn't make it to spoonful #3. Again, this aversion is something unique to this pregnancy alone for me....I wondered today if when children are super "NO" at a food if they are experiencing the same "reflex" I had with the yogurt. Maybe I won't be the "clean plate club" mom, LOL.

Very interesting about your cravings, Jamie! I still have a special fondness for lime tortilla chips, which I craved during my last pregnancy. Now, I usually just squirt fresh lime juice over regular tortilla chips ---mmmmmmm. Delicious! My (now 9 years old!) "baby" loves them, too!
