100 Years

Harrison: "Mom, when I grow so big and turn 100 years old will I be able to destroy the world?"
 Me: "No, and why would you want to destroy the world??"
 Harrison: "Will I be able to hold houses on top of my head and be super strong?"

 (This is the only example I could find of a really strong old man.  Unfortunately, there were no images on Google of an old man holding up a house. )
Me: "No, you won't be able to do that either."

Harrison: very exacerbated, with arms tossing around, "Well, then, what will I do when I turn 100?!"

 Me: "You give thanks to God you've lived to see a hundred and call it a day."

Harrison: "That doesn't sound like very much fun."

Half-Way There

Actually, I'm a little more than halfway finished, but who's keeping track?  Not me! I was reading a magazine today watching my tummy bounce around courtesy of the little feet pictured above.  I think most mothers-to-be will agree, feeling your baby move about is the best part of pregnancy.  This is the only nine months in my baby's entire life that will be spent exclusively with me.  Being a working mother, I appreciate this time of never having to leave my baby.  

I think most parents assume they are having a healthy baby until told otherwise.  As a neonatal ICU nurse, I assume just the opposite.  I see terrible and awful things happen to completely undeserving people everyday.  I am never blind enough to think that couldn't happen to me.  So, when my sonogram last week showed every part of my baby appears healthy and developing perfectly, I breathed such a huge sigh of relief and thanks to God.  

I continue to give thanks for my healthy report and continue to pray for those mothers who aren't as fortunate.

4 Nights and 5 Days

It has been 4 nights and 5 days since I left my house.  The snow and ice have left us isolated from the outside world.  My family of four have been getting in lots of quality time exhausting all activities our house and the snow has to offer.  PJ's have become all-day wear, and basic hygiene like hair combing and teeth brushing has become somewhat optional.  We have been on a repeat cycle of eating, watching a movie, play outside, eating, lounging, another movie (or two!), and then start again! Amongst all this monotony we have managed to reach a few milestones.  Steve and I celebrated eight years of marriage on Tuesday, yah!  Gavin gave us a wonderful gift of finally not needing a diaper at night!  Yah, again!  It's a toss-up for which had me most excited.  Only kidding, of course, no more diapers win hands down!

The boys had a sword fight with icicles. They were very disappointed to discover after only one clash of the swords they crumbled into edible chunks.


When your sword lets you down, you eat it!

I cleaned out my pantry and made lots of desserts from all the food that I discovered. I should do this more often. I found some good eats!

This is our 'special' snowman.  Plungers for arms, Flash (a superhero) for a mouth, a grill lid for a helmet (because all snowmen need helmets, right?) All that and he barely measured twelve inches off the ground.   

Note:  Harrison's bed-head.  See, hair brushing has been optional!
