Shaving my head

It was nice to go see HP7 with my Steve last weekend =^.^= We haven't been to movies for a while, and it was just nice going on a date before the baby comes.

Have you ever seen one of those St. Jude Children's Hospital commercials? "Give Thanks" one? I don't know what it is about it, but it has always touch my heart. However, this past weekend, it hit me harder than usual. I was in tears by the time the commercial was done. There were images of little children who were sick, and hooked up with machines and IVs in their arms. And then a baby girl ( about 4 or 5 yrs old) who was sick, and lost all of her hair. This girls mom shaved her head as well. When I saw that, hot tears just roll down my cheeks like lava coming out of a erupted volcano. I tried not to let Steve see it, cuz I felt silly. But I guess he felt the same way. Probably not as emotional as I am. ( I still got preggo hormones in me)

There is nothing worse than seeing your own child suffer. If my baby girl is sick, I would totally shave my whole head. So she wouldn't feel alone being bald.

If you ask me..

Butter and Sugar. Use the real thing when you are baking or making food with it. Don’t use the fake margarine. The food just tastes weird. Don’t cut corner with sweet treats by using apple sauce , less sugar or add more flour. Just make it by following the recipe. 

There is nothing wrong eating butter and sugar, and it’s okay to have those in your diet. Just don’t eat a pound of ├ęclair, or a dozen cookies at once. That will make you unhealthy of course. Why French women aren’t fat, when all of the French food is made with butter? Because they enjoy and savor their food. They eat one piece of high quality of dark chocolate, instead of having 10 chocolate candy bars (i.e. snickers )

Please don’t substitute butter with apple sauce when making cookies, trust me, it doesn’t turn out, and it tastes terrible. If you gonna have cookies, ├ęclairs, fruit tarts, chocolate mousse and etc. Have the real thing, enjoy the food, and really appreciate it.

37 weeks

18 more days till my due date. I can't hardly wait.
It hurts to walk, it hurts to turn in the bed... It's hard to sleep...
My fingers are swollen, and it hurts to bend.. they look like sausage links
My toes are swollen too.. feet swollen

I guess I shouldn't complain too much, because the swelling just starting to happen about 2 weeks ago.

I am grateful for the glider chair my husband build for me and my baby. It is the most comfortable chair in the house right now. I was so exhausted yesterday, and I actually fell asleep on it while reading.

I a grateful for my massage therapist

37 weeks preggo... and I wasn't wearing pants, so Steve only showed my top. I am retaining all that fluids... gah.
