So... what has been going on?

It's been a while, isn't it, since last you saw me post here? And I have missed it a lot. Unfortunately I can not promise at the moment to be any more regular about blogging though I will try. You see, I mentioned a few complications with this pregnancy. Some of them are hormonal, one of them is gestational diabetes. Now this was slightly annoying during my first pregnancy, but at that point there was no little rambunctuous two year old so munching on broccoli and sticking to an extremely strict diet was not really a problem and I managed it with relative ease. This time around, I need to find the time for menu planning, sugar level measuring, snacking and eating meals that take longer to fill up on in between taking care of a wonderful bundle of energy.
Aside from that, my beloved husband has a deadline at work that he needs to get ready for and I need to prepare for both the holidays and the baby in short order. Needless to say, time and thought have been absent from my blog for a while.

I do come and read the blogs of my friends though, whenever there is a little hole of time, and I will certainly keep you updated on really important things.

Speaking of really important things.... here is my little big boy on halloween. Isn't he the cutest Elmo you have ever seen? I decided I didn't want to spend 35 dollars on a costume that would never be worn again, so when I found this Elmo balaklava the whole idea came together. All three pieces can be worn in winter and together, they formed an adorable costume. Josephs wonderful dad went as Anakin Skywalker and I as Queen Amidala. (well.. there are just not that many things you can go as being very visibly pregnant, right?)

Aw...Joseph looks adorable, and the three of you look so cute together! I'm so sorry you're having to deal with gestational diabetes, that must be so hard when you barely have the energy to grab something from the refrigerator to eat and then you have to be so careful about nutrition. I will be praying that the rest of your pregnancy will go as smoothly as possible until your sweet boy arrives! Take care!
