a pregnancy craving?!

Tonight I think I had my first ever pregnancy craving.  So far it's been a struggle of what sounds the least unappetizing, but tonight I couldn't stop thinking about tortilla chips with guacamole and queso!  Since avocados are healthy I decided this was a perfectly acceptable supper.  (For a first supper anyway.  I generally eat supper at least two times before I go to bed.)  

I'm hoping this is a sign that I will be able to enjoy an entire Thanksgiving meal without any aversions!   So far the worst things are chicken and orange vegetables.  Eek!  I can hardly even think about them without feeling gaggy.  It's so weird because normally I love those! 

In other news, Hubby had eye surgery to repair the tears in his right retina.  He had the left side fixed in February.  This side wasn't as bad as the left, so his recovery has been a little bit easier.  It will still take a while for his vision to be back to normal, but at least he has been able to go most of the day without sunglasses on!  Cameron has been loving all of his extra time with his daddy.

Cameron's Big News

Cameron has some big news!  He will be a big brother late May/early June!  

Our official due date is June 1st, however Cameron was 5 days early so I am estimating that we will have a May baby this time.  We are currently 11 weeks.  I've had this post saved since I took the pictures, so I think it's time to publish it!  :)  


As far as symptoms go, pregnancy and I don't get along very well.  I've had some people tell me that morning sickness is a sign of healthy fetal development, but that doesn't make it any more pleasant.  I'm just hoping that it doesn't last my whole pregnancy like it did with Cameron.  I've made friends with my super stylish sea bands.  They are acupressure wrist bands that people usually wear for motion sickness, but I've been wearing them for the last month and I haven't been nearly as sick this time.  We had our first real prenatal appointment today and got to hear Baby Cook's heartbeat!  That's my favorite part!

Washing windows

This morning Cameron and I washed all of the baby hand prints and puppy nose prints off the windows.  

And then Cameron decided the windows were a little too clean.
