Folks....the belly has definitely *popped* as they say. Little Finn is growing and kicking, each evening brings a brand new series of squirms and internal bumps...Zac was able to feel him for the first time last night....smiles all around.
I have had a splendid day. Zac was blessed with the opportunity to deliver some food to a local hospital for a little extra cash(some friends of our own the homiest restaurant and get pretty slammed with Christmas catering orders.) Instead of staying home and doing school with Brady like maybe I should have done....we just loaded up the kids and we all made the delivery together. We were able to take the kids and let them pick out a toy to buy to give to a local charity that will be serving Christmas dinner to over 5,000 people this year....and hopefully also there will be enough toys collected that each family can have a new gift to give their child. It makes me so sad to think of a family not being able to give there child even a simple gift on Christmas...can you imagine? The kids had fun picking out the toy and I would love for this little act of giving to be one of our new traditions for years to come.
I made some manicotti this evening (zac made the remark "man, I love it when you cook meals like this"-guess I've made one to many sandwhiches here lately)....we had wonderful french bread and just a bit of chardonnay on the side(close your jaws folks....yes, I'm one of those pregnant women)...then this evening after kids were in bed Zac made me a bubble bath. Our bathtub may be small...it might have a ring of mold around the edge that WILL NEVER COME OFF...but when your body is tired and your feet are swollen...that little 5x6 bathroom is heaven on earth. Don't I have the most thoughtful husband?
Hope you all had a good day....and one more question that I NEED answered. I have the worst heartburn from the moment I conceive a child until the moment they vacate my body(romantic huh?) What are some home remedies that I could use....I have tried different teas, tums, even a perscription from the doctor. I need help!!!! It doesn't matter if I eat a banana or salsa, water or juice...I'm in pain almost all day. Any suggestions would be great my dear readers.
