He’s THIS many!

posted by harlie in family, fun

Actually, Lil’Man has never said that because he can easily articulate the fact that he’s three (though he will often hold out his fingers, just to make sure you know). We didn’t have a huge celebration, but we did enjoy some train and carousel riding. It was a bit colder and slightly drizzly, but we had jackets to keep us warm and a blanket to keep us (relatively) dry.

By the way, he wanted me to know that the rose on his horse was for me. I love my Lil’Man.

And of course, there was cake and candles.

Happy birthday, kiddo!

Fun with Gestational Diabetes

posted by harlie in day-to-day, family, fun

As we were returning home from a lunch out with the family, I realized I needed to check my blood glucose levels.

Lil’Man: What’s mommy doing?
The Mr : She’s checking her blood sugar.
Lil’Man: Why she checking her bluuuh-sugar?
The Mr : Because she’s so sweet! She has to be careful or she might turn into chocolate.
Lil’Man: Oh…why?
The Mr : Do you want mommy to turn into chocolate?
Lil’Man: Yes, we eat her and then we’ll go to the store and get another Christina!

I feel so loved :) and I couldn’t stop laughing.


So, I haven’t really talked about being pregnant, though I know a lot of bloggers do. I’ve had pretty standard pregnancies (morning sickness, being ridiculously tired, weird dreams, not being able to touch my toes easily eight months in…like I said, typical), except that I have gestational diabetes. I’ve been lucky in that both pregnancies I’ve avoided having to take insulin shots and been able to manage with just adjusting my diet. This time is a bit more tricky since I’m having to deal with the Christmas holidays. The cookies and candies and other assorted holiday treats taunt me at every turn.

Lil’Man love his Duplos. When I asked him to make me something, he brought me this: a flying dinosaur! Love my little builder!

Zoo Trip

We thought we’d get in one more zoo visit before the weather gets too chilly (and possibly rainy).
