Baby Games

Friday Night was supposed to be a regular, old run-of-the-mill, have-some-casual-fun get together with friends. And don't get me wrong, it was definitely that.

But because I am quite certain I have the best friends in the world, it couldn't just be a get together. No, these ladies came equipped with two things that prove they know the way to make my heart smile:

1) Games
Not just any games. A game, the was specially made for Nate and I--the parents to be. Think pictionary with baby words...like Irish Twins (which I failed at miserably), Rock-a-bye-baby (which the boys got lucky on), etc. Everyone knows I like a good competition. Who knew the boys would be so in tune with baby stuff?



2) Food
Now it wasn't like party platters of food, or food that anyone would consider normal. But let's face it. I am not in a 'normal condition' right now, so 'normal' food is relative.

The prizes to the aforementioned games were each tucked into a separate game, and while Nate technically did win a few of these prizes, it was clear that they were purchased with one person in mind: pregnant Greta.

So, my recent food preference (because it isn't a crazy pregnant craving), is lemons. I want them in in every glass of water, mostly so I can fish them out at the end of meal and eat them. But with this gift, I can literally cut myself up a lemon snack. Yum! But really anything citrusy, or salty is where it is at. And I am loving the occasional handful of chocolate chips.....

But they also brought me this (which I have been eating all weekend)...

Chocolate dipped Citrus!! Brilliant.

Anyway, it was a very fun night. So fun, in fact that it was 12:30 before I went to bed which was the latest I have lasted since my epic New Years night. Nate was very proud of me :)

Uff da, when I seen the title of this post I was thinking it was going to be womb swimming races including the breast stroke, butterfly kick, and maybe a doggy paddle, with flip turns of course...

You do have great friends! :)
They are so awesome.
I will be curious to see if you join me on my one weird crazy pregnant lady addiction.
SPEARMINT GUM.
Had to have it, almost an entire pack a day near the end. Chewed in the shower....it's so fun to see that citrus is your thing right now.
And chocolate is ALWAYS on my craving list. Pregnant or not!
