Hellow crud

We were doing so well. A few colds here and there, but really, quite minor. Now C is upstairs in bed with a horrible cold/sinus thing. The boys have all had it to varying degrees. And I have it. Ick. And I think we may have shared it with a few people since we were pretty social on Friday. Sorry everyone!
E was even sleeping pretty much through the night, but he was up 2x last night with stuffies. Still worlds better from where he was!
On the upside, I don't have a cough (knock on wood) for which I am extremely grateful. And the boys let me take a nap today. That also helps.

On the pregnancy:
I am very obviously pregnant now. I need to take another picture. Enough that strangers and acquaintances alike feel safe commenting. All positive so far. I still feel really good too. The SPD comes and goes. Some days I hardly notice it, some days walking is a challenge. But mostly good days. I think it has to do a lot with how much sleep I get. Or more likely, how many times I get in and out of bed. Also, as much as I would like to be all perfectly fit, walking or other activities really aggrivate it.
The baby moves all the time now. G and M really like to feel the kicks and are starting to want to talk to the baby. They are totally cool with the fact that we don't know if we'll be having a boy or a girl. And so far, no sibling issues. Of course, we'll see what happens with E when he is put out of his baby of the family spot. He is not really keen on me holding other babies. I'm hoping that he can put up with sharing. I'm sure he'll be fine. He'll not be the first 20 month old to have to share mom. And he is already used to sharing me, really.
I am starting to get a little nervous about how far along I am. Today marks 24 weeks. It's kinda scary to think that we are entering "age of viability territory". And that May is getting here so dang fast. It feels like I have only thought about the house and not the baby. And I really, really need to think about the baby. After all, I sold all baby clothes. I do have a co-sleeper, car seat and my babycarriers. And a few diapers. But clothes might be nice. I should just go and grab a few packs of onsies and declare myself ready.
That's the beauty of new babies. They really don't need much! But we do. Like a freezer stocked with food. That would be nice. Dinner trains don't work so well for a family with all the food issues ours has. But I don't really want to stock it now and then have to haul everything down the street.
In thinking about the food prep I needed to do, I started looking for some recipes. I wanted large quantity recipes for some basics that I could alter to meet our needs. I ended up at the quantity cooking and cooking for a crowd type sites. I had the thought, as I'm reading recipes for 25-100 people, that you know you are getting into large family territory when you resort to these recipes! I must be Mormon. Hahaha. That and feeding 3 boys. I'll figure it all out, I'm sure. I called my mom and she had some good ideas.

It is getting harder and harder to blog these days. E loves the computer. He knows the off button very well. He also has a knack, like his brothers before him, for finding interesting settings on the computer that I don't know how to fix. Just this afternoon, he got ahold of the mouse and clicked it a bunch. He changed some setting in blogger that made all the type go backwards. So instead of typing blogger, it would come out as reggolb. I shut it off and restarted and it fixed it. I could not for life of me find the setting that would do that. Any one know how he did that??

Perfect timing. A blog I follow is doing a Nutritious Freezer Meal Carnival. Maybe you can adapt some of these recipes.

Miss you!!!
