I reached 18 weeks yesterday. Things have been going well, but I find that with this pregnancy I'm not sleeping as well as I did with the other two. Sometimes I wake up either hungry or unable to sleep so I end up in the kitchen with a banana or on the couch with a book in hand until I can no longer keep my eyes open. But for some odd reason, I'm not terribly tired during the day. I am most grateful for that. I keep having dreams that my sister keeps finding out the gender of her baby before me and I always wake up wondering how it is possible until I come to my senses and realize I am just dreaming. Halloween has given me some trouble and thrown me off my eating. I finally decided to break it up in little bags and put it way so I have to make some effort to get to it, so have to think about it instead of mindlessly popping it in my mouth . I don't do well when temptation is right under my nose. Here is to hoping I am successful getting back on track next week.
Last night we had our ward chili/pie cookoff. It was a great time. It was so nice to just be able to pick a random table and visit with people we have never met before and talk so easily. We really do love our new ward, and truly feel like it is where we are supposed to be. Before the activity I pulled hot rolls out of the oven for the dinner, and we ate a few (5) while Ruby entertained us with her latest dance moves. Jed decided to get some pictures of her doing her thing, but decided that the photo's weren't doing them justice so he turned to some video footage. I myself think the pictures are pretty priceless.
