A while back I read a post from a friend of mine about how her growing baby was made up of all the things she was eating. Which makes sense when you think about it, but most people don’t think about it. I’ve been thinking about it though, what I eat is what my daughter is made of.
She’s made of Thanksgiving dinner, New Year’s grilled steak, Cheerios, chocolate, pomegranate infused craisins (amazingly good!), yogurt, apples with cheese, lots of waffles and tacos, guacamole, Taco Bell, Chili’s, Little Caesar’s, black beans & rice, homemade pizza, tater tots & hot dogs, orange chicken, chicken teriyaki, Hawaiian haystacks, McBlatts, home grown lettuce and tomatoes, groundhogs in a blanket, stir fry, caldo verde, chicken pot pie, cottage pie, meatloaf, Beyond Bread (Brett told me I could “crave” Beyond Bread whenever I wanted), lamb, pesto meatballs, asparagus rotini. Lots of good stuff. Lots of easy stuff too.
At this point she’s not making any new systems, just developing what she’s got.
I keep reading about how the brain is developing at incredible speeds right now and I need to make sure I’m getting plenty of iodine and omega-3 to help her along with that.
I sure hope there’s a lot of iodine and omega-3 in Otter Pops, because I’m going through those like nobody’s business right now. I had thought the pregnancy would probably run out before the box did, but that’s looking less and less likely as the days go on.
