Ahhhh…(that was the happiest sigh ever). You guys are amazing! Thank you from the very bottom of my heart for all of your congrats and well wishes. It feels unbelievably good to be able to tell you all…finally! I wanted to shout it from the rooftops when I found out about the little Baby Cake 8 weeks ago, but I waited, and now it is so sweet. So, so sweet. You all are amazing.

So, now that the word is out…I don’t have to make excuses for my meals – they’ve been scattered. I have been eating whatever I feel like because for the last 2 months, I have hated food. All food. It was so sad. But now that my appetite is starting to return (yippee!), I’m feeding it what it tells me to.

A lots of smoothies.

This actually wasn’t very good – live and learn.

Many veggie sandwiches.


And thank goodness, apples didn’t lose their appeal for long.

Sadly, avocados were the worst offender for 2 months. But they’ve started to sound good again.

Especially when smashed inside an onion bagel.

Or on a sweet potato.

In the 3rd grade world…

I told my kiddos about the pregnancy yesterday- via a game of hangman. (The sentence was “I am going to have a baby”) They were actually very calm about it. Most of them just shrugged and continued packing their backpacks to go home for the day. But when my students from a few years ago (now 5th graders) found out – they were jumping up and down, tackling me in the hallway, and giving me lists of potential baby names.

So today during carpool, when one of the 5th graders celebrated her birthday, she (and a few friends) came into my classroom stating that they had “brought the baby a cookie”…


A homemade snickerdoodle to go with my hot water – no complaints from me or Baby Cake.

(And if you look closely in the background, you can see the shoes of one of my students who was sitting in my comfy chair upside down, with his feet straight up in the air)
