22 Weeks Pregnant

Taken at 22 Weeks, 3 Days

How Far Along? 22 Weeks, 6 Days

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope! I have finally tried the last thing on my aversion list to see if it bothered me. I happy to report I am fully enjoying ceasar salad again!

Food Cravings? This might sound weird, but right after I typed that I thought to myself how much I would love a good, garlicky ceasar salad right now....

Quite Frankly, You're Not My Type

Do you have a red beard? Glasses? Dirty blonde hair? Do you like to wear plaid and dark jeans, or anything by Obey, and can only be found in shorts and sandals from April to October? Do you have a bit of a belly- just the right amount that you're soft to lay my head on while we watch TV?

No? Well, quite frankly then, you're not my type.

Here's the thing guys. My husband? He is my standard of handsome. He is exactly what gets my heart racing- him and no one else. The cool thing about all this is that he changes, and my standard of handsome changes right along with him. You may have noticed his beard has grown quite long lately. I love it. As much as I tease him by telling him he's not allowed to, if he were to shave it off, I would love that too.

21 Weeks Pregnant

Taken at 21 Weeks, 3 Days

How Far Along? 21 Weeks, 6 Days

Anything making you queasy or sick? Well there was that time I felt sick all evening long, but I think that had more to do with all the junk food I had been eating in the 24 hours prior to that... On that note- Anne of Green Gables weekend was a huge success! ;)

Food Cravings? Mucho Burrito. Craved and satisfied. Oh, how I love Mucho....

20 Weeks Pregnant

Taken at 20 Weeks, 3 Days

How Far Along? 20 Weeks, 6 Days

Anything making you queasy or sick? Hmm. I had a night this week where I felt really sick and almost thought I was getting the flu. Some chicken noodle soup fixed me right up though, and I felt fine the next morning so I'm calling it a fluke.

Food Cravings? One night I had a craving for a hot spinach and artichoke dip, and luckily we were having friends over for dinner so I had the perfect excuse to make it. I used this recipe, tripling the garlic (which I do with most recipes...) and it was AMAZING.

19 Weeks Pregnant

Taken at 19 Weeks, 3 days

How Far Along? 19 Weeks, 6 Days

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope! I even had some hummus this week and loved it! Woo hoo!

Food Cravings? There was a night this week where I craved tortellini with alfredo sauce at about 10 pm. Thankfully I had the good sense not to try to fulfill it in that moment, and I thought it had subsided until I started answering this question....

Tell Him How Wonderful He Is. Often.

The other night Chris and I had a conversation that led to him pouring out his heart to me about all the things he has been struggling with recently. It was a holy moment, and one that I don't take for granted. It was a moment of pure vulnerability, and so I am sure you are all wondering why on earth I would be sharing it with all of you.

Well, because I think God wants me to.

See, this is not about my husband's struggles, but instead about a choice of how to respond. After he poured it all out, I offered to pray for him. I wish I could tell you about how often I pray for my husband (and I don't mean just pray for him, but pray out loud with him.) but the truth is that it isn't enough. This is an area I am seeking to grow in, as I believe it benefits our marriage in unimaginable ways- both by ministering to our hearts, but also making a real tangible difference in the spiritual world, because friends, we are of one flesh. The unity between man and wife is unlike any other. You better believe our prayers together and for each other make a difference.
