10 on Tuesday (on Wednesday!)

1. I've been a block slacker lately. No consistency at all. Annnnnd I'm trying to remind myself that it doesn't matter. If I want to hang out with my kids instead or go to sleep early that's fine. :)

2. I've made a lot of treats lately. And I am totally wanting to make this which I know isn't healthy at ALL but look at it. mmmmmm.

3. I'm kind of on a reading frenzy lately. When I am tired or not feeling well I laze around and read. It's better than hanging out on the internet. I can read books in my kids room while they play around me. Or climb on me, depending which kid we are talking about. Currently reading this book.
Next up on my list are The Ladies Auxiliary, the Book Thief and finishing What the Dog saw.

4. Even though I've had 3 kids already feeling a baby move inside you is so neat and strange. It makes it all seem so REAL. I am at 19 weeks. That is literally almost half way. Which is totally crazy and awesome. :)

5. This morning at 630 am Eli was standing beside our bed. And no one got him out. Heaven help us.

6. Speaking of Eli, I am potty training him. Day 2. And I am actually saying out loud that I am potty training him. But it's going so much better than it ever has for a child in this Steed family at this age. WAY better. So we are going for it! Imagine I might actually have a few months without a child in diapers. That'd be CRAZY at our house!

7. Every time I am pregnant I think about food a lot. I mean more than I regularly do. I NEED good food. My body craves it. Nothing like ichiban noodles are going to satisfy my appetite. Instead I want things like Chicken tacos, taco dip, guacamole bruschetta, Italian Bread with Gorgonzola, artichoke bread. mmmmmmmmmm Fooooooood :) hahahah It's good I haven't even gained that much weight this pregnancy so far :)

8. I AM going to get out house on the market in the next two weeks. I AM. I AM. I am.

9. One of the things I am most looking forward to about being done residency and all these years of school (besides not living in debt anymore) is having my husband at home when he's at home. He is here today but we all need to leave him alone cause he is studying. And he is often studying. But to actually come home and BE here. Wowzers! Sounds awesome! I wonder how I will adjust to having that. He might need a hobby since it might be a hard adjustment for him too!

10. I did a family photo shoot this last week and they were from BC. It always makes me wonder how people hear of me and my photography! Guess I should start asking hey ;)

I agree with the baby moving thing. Its so neat to feel that even though you have felt it before with the others and yes it makes it seems so much more real.
are you finding out what you are having?

this and and then said...

oooo I love Barbara Kingsolver- Animal Dreams and The Bean Trees! If you loan your books out can I be on the list?

I knew we are both due in Sept, I didn't realize just how close our due dates are. I'm 19 weeks and 3 days today. Unlike you, I'm not feeling a lot of movement due to the placenta on top. Yay for being almost 1/2 way through!!

Good List :) Love no longer having diapers... Miss the baby stage every once in a while though. I am going to have to make that treat myself.

Christal said...

I love those graham squares they are so addicting!! Love your 10! You are due around the same time as my sister in law she is 19 weeks too fun! Hope this week is awesome!

1. Yummy smores.
2. You would be a great Nanny.
3. How do you read more than one book at a time. I have to finish one before I start another.
4. Lists...they make me happy.

The Ladies Auxiliary is one of my favorite books. Happy reading! :)

I have the book thief. It's so good. You can totally borrow it.

Hi Rhonda,
I'm Heather's sister and Crystal's daughter, and I've heard so much about you. I just had to sneak over to your blog today and read it, and I think we have a lot in common. My hubbie is just starting his family med. residency in Fredericton, NB. I might just have to email you every now and then for advice on how to handle it all. I hope the Board exam goes great, and you can start enjoying more family time. I'm dreading many parts of residency, but I know that there will be an end.

still love it if you would come up here and photograph my family. :-)
Barbara Kingsolver books are wonderful. I've read all but the latest! Enjoy!
