Merry Christmas to you and yours! Ben, Caleb, and I are having a blast in EP, enjoying the weather, the family time, the laughs, and most of all (for me, anyway) THE FOOD!

I have to keep reminding myself to drink more water. I don't notice I haven't drank enough until I start getting consecutive Braxton Hicks contractions and I have to lay down, drink several cups of water, and just breathe for a minute. Also, Mexicans don't drink water. Why would we when there's Manzanita and every flavor of Barritos available?! So yeah, my soda intake has been crazy these past few days. Good thing I already passed my gestational diabetes test, hehehehe.

Ben and I decided on some major changes to other areas of life that were causing all the stress and anxiety, so the past 2 weeks have been much more relaxed in that aspect and I'm so thankful that I have the means and support to do what's best for baby girl. I've only had 1 stress dream since then, woohoo! Compared to having them every night and waking up feeling like I didn't get any rest at all. We have faith that God will continue to provide and grant us the wisdom to know what steps to take in the near future.

I received the term “gordita” from several people at church or in my extended family during this trip. For the first time in my life!! It was a little traumatic the first time someone said it to me, but then I embraced it. Look, I've lost the weight before and I will lose it again. I'm ok. I'm ok. I'm doing just fine! Haha, no seriously it's ok. I'm a gordita right now and it's for a good cause.

I'm going to go through serious tamal withdrawals when I leave :c
