Weekend Reading



I'm only a few weeks into my third trimester and, wow, do I miss the energy I used to have in my second. Every little task takes three times as much energy (and time).

In fact, I actually took a nap on the couch this afternoon while Caroline napped upstairs. I never do that. I usually use the quiet time to catch up on my to-do list... But I knew around lunchtime that there'd be no way I'd be catching up today. Instead, I pushed the to-do list out of my head and embraced the opportunity to get some rest.

Well, on second thought... Maybe there is something I can catch up on today -- reading my favorite blogs. I can do that while putting my feet up and supervising our very active and imaginative toddler.

While I look forward to doing that, why don't you check out the things I read over the past week.

  1. After her early interest in potty training waned, Caroline is starting to express an interest in using her seat again. Let's see if any of these tips help move things along.
  2. I've been considering spoiling myself a little with luxury pajamas... especially ones that are bump-friendly.
  3. And, speaking of the third trimester... 
  4. Art time is one of Caroline's favorite parts of her day, so I just know she's going to love going here one day.
  5. She also loves music, so it'll be interesting to see if she follows in Stephen's musical footsteps or mine.
  6. I had a phone date with one of my favorite people yesterday, and we were talking about pregnancy cravings. With Caroline, it was donuts, all day, every day. With this baby, I can't get enough lemonade or berries... or berry-based beverages like this one.
  7. It took a while, but I finally finished reading this cookbook, and I can't decide which recipe to try first.
