Almost Goldfish...

Do you remember those little bright orange goldfish crackers from gluten-consuming days?  Who doesn't, right?  And they seem to be a childhood staple--one that my children have had to do without.

A few weeks ago while perusing a new section at Safeway that was emblazoned with large signs on each side declaring it to be gluten-free I found a small package of cheese crackers by Schar.  Of course, we had to try them.

As you can see, we didn't wait to take a picture before opening the package to try them.  Nope, these obviously aren't goldfish.  They are conspicuously minus that goldfish shape.  They also aren't as orange.  However, apart from that, they taste very much like a milder version of that cracker many of us grew up with.

When I gave Mercy her first one her response was "mmm, that's a treat!"  But she hasn't been quite so enthusiastic since.  I suppose that's alright--more for me!

Wordless Wednesday--Happy 1st Birthday Little Guy!

Today is Gilead's first birthday, and our little guy is not so little anymore.  This year has been such a whirlwind in so many ways, but I still can't believe that Gilead is now one.  Happy Birthday Little Guy!

Our handsome, blue-eyed guy.

Wordless Wednesday--How Far Along Am I?

In light of our recent news, and given the fact that given the circumstances of the preganancy I don't yet know how far along I am, I thought it would be fun to play a little game.  Can you guess how far along I am?  I have a guess based on past pregnancies, but in the end, I'm really not sure.  I should be finding out in the next week or two.

I've gone from having a relatively flat stomach and having no clue I was pregnant to maternity clothes and this in less than three weeks.  And yes, I'm well aware that I'm wearing that sick and exhausted pregnant look.  I'm still trying to shake it.

So, how far along would you guess?

Wordless Wednesday--A Little Announcement...


This is the big news at our house this week.  I'm not sure when I'm due since my cycle never returned between Gilead and this little one, but I'm guessing this one is coming sometime this fall.  We'll soon be a family of five!
