Happy March. I love this month, it's always full of surprises... one day I can smell mud and new life, the next we get a dumping of snow. I keep thinking last year was so mild that we were out enjoying spring blooms already, but then I looked back on the details from a year ago and it looks pretty much like life these days (except my baby boy has grown so big!).
I have been happily returning to cooking. I'm pleased to say that there were no dinners from a box this week, it's been a few months since I could make that claim. It's good to feel myself again and to reconnect with real food. Of course I'm still craving chocolate like a mad woman and I walk to the store almost daily for a candy bar... because the walking is such good exercise!
This morning was my monthly check-up with the midwife and for the first time we all went as a family. James and Little Smith got to hear the baby's heartbeat, always exciting. Next Friday is our big ultrasound when (hopefully!) we'll get to find out if we're baking a little girl or boy. I can't wait, although I truly will be happy either way... I just want to know!
This week-end we have plans to see a children's concert for a benefit and are also contemplating a day trip to New Hampshire for a proper snowshoe. I was so blah for most of this winter that we're behind on our snow fun, and it's been raining here for days (but snowing up north). Enjoy this first week-end of March!
