By 10:30 this morning, I'd already eaten breakfast and two hearty snacks!! Good grief! This baby is hopefully growing and helping me with this inhalation of food! My tummy is pooching out...NOT because of the baby; rather, because of all the food I've eaten today!! :) I also just downed a Publix 6" turkey & cheese with EVERYthing sub! Heavy on the jalapenos, pickles, banana peppers, olives, tomatoes, bell peppers and lettuce, but no onions, please! Oh, and I always ask for EXTRA VINEGAR!! :) Oh, gosh, it was yummy! That sandwich has become my 'stand-by' these days! I picked up some yummy looking Kellogg's Special K Chocolatey Drizzle granola bars because they were on sale, so that'll be my afternoon snack. Ooooh, I'd love a cup of decaf coffee with that. Hmmmmm....I'll have to figure something out.

I'm actually glad to have my appetite back. I wasn't interested in food for weeks, which was sad because I typically enJOY food! So, 'Junior' and I are happy little campers...well, I guess he/she's more the 'camper' in my belly. :)

On another note, Russell's doing GREAT! He accidentally called me this morning, and we got to talk! He explained that his cell phone was actually powered off, but when he and the guys were literally dumped upside down in a Hum-V simulation exercise and had to unbuckle their belts (I guess to escape???), his phone was evidently powered on and did the smart thing...calling me! :) I mean, what are the chances of that!?!? "Thank YOU, Lord!!"

Gosh, I'm re-charged for days! I LOVED that surprise call...I NEEDED it, and I know it was indeed a gift from the Lord, for which I absolutely acknowledge and praise Him!

Thank y'all for praying for us!! We appreciate each of you, even if we don't know you personally! :) I like kind "blog stalkers." I'm one of them!

I knew it wouldn't be long before the starving would begin!! Just wait 'til it wakes you up at 2 am and you have to have FOOD! Russell will think you've lost your mind when he rolls over and sees you eating in bed! Oh the joys of pregnancy!!!

Darby said...

Oh... and I'm so glad he "accidently" called you! Good thing we both know there are no accidents! :) Especially good ones!
