Details...maybe too many

I am 10 weeks along, not very far, but my stomach is already sticking out. Gone are the days with the first baby where you could not show for 4 or 5 months. I have had A LOT of food aversions which is a new experience for me:) and ridiculous cravings. I am the cliche pregnant lady that changes her mind every five seconds about what she is craving. "Sam I NEED a Meximelt from Taco Bell, no, Pad Thai, no, fresh bread with cheese, no, Thom Ka Gai soup..ahhhh!" I'm crazy. I woke up the other night at 2am really nausiated, but really hungry. Every food I thought about made me want to puke, but I had major fasting pains and had to eat. The only thing that sounded good was Reese's Puffs Cereal, which I probably hadn't eaten in 2 years. So heroic Sam went to the grocery store and got me a box at 2 in the morning. Once I am awake I have a really hard time falling asleep so I just stayed up eating Cereal and watching "17 Again" until I dozed off on the couch. It was a great night:)

This pregnancy has been different than my others, I am more nausiated, but still I am convinced it is a boy. With the other 3 I was sure they were girls so maybe I'm just reading my intuition wrong.

If it is a boy we already have a boy name picked out. His name would be West, which is a name in the Hirt family tree.

I have a bunch of girls names I like, but I think I have had them in my mind for so many years that I am sick of most of them. The ones that we like for now are these:

Vivian and call her Vivi(I like this one, sam isn't sold)
Violet (I used to like this, but am a little sick of it)
Dorothy call her Dot (Sam Loves this, but I am not convinced)
Zuzu (I like this because I love "It's a Wonderful Life" and I think the Zuzu's petals scene is so sweet and it makes me happy, but I also realize it is bizzare, but maybe in an amazing way. Sam isn't there....yet:)

Well there you go. My brain doesn't function correctly when I am pregnant. I have anxiety and weirdness, so I am a little sick of myself, but at least I have an excuse to be crazy instead of just being crazy for no reason, like usual.

proof: not a food baby

There he/she is!

The paper was crumpled by the boys so you can't see it very clearly, but the head is at the bottom left.

Sammy's video

I wish I could take credit for this video but this one was all Sammy

I have really Scrappy boys. My love for scrappiness is inherited from my Mom. I think they are cutest when they have bed head and they pick out their own clothes and roll in the dirt. Here are some scrappy pics. Sammy lost another tooth, got a scratch on his face he likes to call the Anniken scar, and an M on his forehead to represent Mario. All my kids have bad haircuts because I don't really know how to cut hair, but I do it to save money. I think it adds to the effect. Oh, and these pics were taken by the boys...oh so scrappy!
