Ice, ice Mommy

So, my one and only edible craving with Little Elvis has once again reared it's head. All I want is ice. I want to crunch on it all the time. I have certain types that I like and our ice trays are not my favorites, but oh well.

When pregnant with Little Elvis, I freaked my doctor out with my ice and non-food cravings (fresh bars of Zest soap and those green kitchen scrubbies that are really scratchy.) She actually asked me if I was eating soap and scrubbies. I wasn't. I have some willpower.

Anyway, my iron wasn't really low. So, I just ate ice all the time during my pregnancy with Little Elvis.

This winter, we realized that my love of ice was actually thanks to him. He LOVES ice, and will happily crunch on it -- if it doesn't slide out of his hands first.

I'm assuming that Baby Plum will also be an ice fan. As soon as I start crunching, he starts kicking. Poor Bob, he'll be stuck in a house with three ice crunchers.

Baby Plum is active at all times of the day and night right now. I noticed Little Elvis' movements mainly in the late morning and at night. It seems like Baby Plum goes to town all day. And his kicks are getting stronger and stronger.

I just finished my first tray of ice for the day. Off to get another one...

That is hillarious! I had a babysitter when I was little that loved to crunch ice, this reminds me of her. You must be blessed with teeth that aren't sensitive to cold. Do you have a Sonic nearby? They have awesome tiny ice blocks - much better than tray ice. Happy crunching!

There was not a greater treat on the planet for me than ice when I was pregnant with both my children. But I didn't like big cubes. I was more of a crushed or shaved ice kind of a girl. The little ice balls from fast food restaurants were acceptable as well.

Would flavored (100% juices) frozen appeal to you? A healthy homemade freeze pop.
