I got pregnant with Josi when Allen was only 9 months old so I'm not sure I was even aware of any differences in my eating preferences since I was already eating way more than usual to keep up with nursing the 9 month old. I do remember devouring an entire tray of Valentine's cookies the night before Josi's emergency C-section delivery. So, I'm thinking that sweet foods were more my forte for pregnancy #2.
When I got pregnant with Michael, I had a 2 1/2yr. old and an 18month old to keep up with so I'm thinking I probably craved whatever I had time to stuff into my mouth between changing diapers, running to therapy appointments, and answering a million questions from my unusually inquisitive and verbal preschooler. Life was a blur and was about to get even blurrier. Guess I should have written more in that darn pregnancy journal I meant to keep for each child. ha ha
So, care to guess what my craving is for this 4th "pregnancy"? Come on, if you've been reading my blog even for a short time you can make a pretty good guess at this one. If you guessed STARBUCKS then you're dead-on right!!! More specifically, a Grande White Mocha, half caf., skinny, no whip, substitute 2 pumps with sugar free vanilla, latte! Is it any wonder Jim still has to get me to write it down when he wants to "surprise" me with an early morning coffee? :) My sister, Nicole, asked if they have Starbucks in Ukraine. I googled it and found out that it's in the works but alas, there probably won't be one up and running when we get there!!! gasp!
Yes, Nadia will be known as my Starbucks Baby. So, in honor of that distinction, I bought her this adorable "Bearista Bear" when I was satisfying my daily craving (actually, it usually precedes a trip downtown to drop off or pick up another adoption form). Isn't it sweet?
