Here's a Moo update...he's started to do this thing in the morning where if I'm not awake yet he'll start babbling and touching my face to wake me up and when I open my eyes he'll start laughing. It's so cute!!!! He did it this morning. I kept closing and opening my eyes and he would just laugh everytime I opened them. I love my little Moo pies!!! He's getting so big. When he's laying down sprawled out sometimes can't believe how big he's gotten! Little giant Moo. I've seen some babies though that are so fat!!! I wonder if they are formula fed because I heard that can be a factor in childhood obesity. Anyway I may write more later but I need to do some more research for my essay while he's still asleep.
So John and I decided the only way to save money is to eat like Vietnamese people. Well not exactly but along the lines of cheap plus Asian equals packaged noodles, cans of assorted seafood, rice and the sale meats you can get at HEB. We also take spirulina and calcium supplements since neither of us are eating any dairy...at all. I've had to sacrifice caffeine, chocolate and dairy for Memphis. He has a severe allergy to dairy and caffeine makes him fussy and since he's exclusively breastfed it's better I leave those things out of my diet. I sure miss chocolate though...oh and cheese...mmmmm. We've been doing it now for 2 weeks and I've lost weight already!!! Not that I really needed to but it's exciting nonetheless! Plus we've saved a lot of money. Everyday we crave fourth meal from taco bell or wendy's baconator!!! Makes my mouth water just thinking about the greasy deliciousness of it! I managed however to talk John into going to chinese buffet on saturday! YAY! Is it sad to look forward to days only because your going to eat something really bad for you? I miss the days when i was pregnant and I could eat anything and everything I wanted just because I was pregnant...actually hated being pregnant and all the uncomfortable, sleeplessness, bloated parts about it. What I'm really craving right now is warm brie cheese with a hot loaf of french bread. Listen to me I sound like I'm pregnant...but I'm not!!! I swear I'm not, I promise...I better not be, I'M NOT!! I'm not....but on that topic me and John do want to have more kids and I've been thinking of names: boy- Marley Hanh Carnahan girl- Mai Ly Carnahan...Mai Ly and Hanh being Vietnamese names. I think they are so cute and since all the children we have will look like their father I think the names fit! John and Kate were right...if you have children with someone who is half Asian of some kind your kids will look more Asian that anything else! Anyways enough of that I need to eat something before Memphis wakes up again.
