A Growing Pooch and Fun Foods!

Here is a little picture of my baby bump. I am standing next to the fountain outside of the yummy little Mediterranean restaurant Nator and I ate at this past weekend in Princeton, NJ. It definitely felt awkward having Steve take a picture of just me, but I want to document my growing belly during the whole pregnancy week by week - so i better get used to the awkward poses. I decided to start with week 13 because I definitely feel like I am sporting the awkward pooch now. This picture does not do justice...I look poochier in person - this shirt does a good job of hiding it! Promise!!
Nator is really hoping that we have a chubby little monkey, so he keeps making sure I am well fed! He has told me that he will feed our baby M&M's if it is not "tasty" enough! By tasting he means chunky.

This week my new cravings are:

Dark Chocolate - will always hit the spot.

I also ate a big jar of pickles in 1 day. You can imagine how awful I felt afterward, but of course I am going to need to buy another jar of pickles ASAP for my demanding tummy. I should probably buy a few jars at the rate I am going. Claussen pickles are the best!

I think our baby enjoys it when I eat fun kiddy foods, so maybe that is why I am craving/eating these cute little gummy fish and the sour patch kids!

One More Thing....
I am having lots of dreams during the night. I love the ones where I wake up and just want to go back to sleep so I can continue the fun adventure I am in the middle of. But I have had a lot of awful dreams that I am so relieved to wake up and realize that is NOT "my life"!
