I miss you

O! coffee, where art thou
When I need thee now?
In thy many flavoured blends
A hot cup would be godsend.
I cannot keep awake
Without a short coffee-break.
With thy life-giving aroma
Save me from going into a coma.
Java, Colombian or French Roast
Thy every flavour, I will toast.
To the end thy loyal slave
Three cups a day I will always crave.


WHHHAAAA!!!! I want a Carmel lite frappuccino. Seven months clean, but the craving is still there.
We have come up with a substitution for my daily Starbucks runs. Caleb has become my in house barista . We bought some cappuccino mix from Costco (99.9% caffeine free) and have been fooling around with creating the perfect blend to cure my insatiable craving. It has kinda worked so far. The only problem is I have to wait until Caleb gets home to have one. I tried to make one this morning and 1)it just didn't taste as good 2) I made a huge mess all over the counter when I poured my "coffee" mixture from the blender to my cup. I just can't believe that after all this time the pull for coffee in general is so strong. I have already ordered Caleb to bring me a frapp as soon as I have the baby. I figure I'll feed little Wyatt and then drink my frapp. Surely by his next feeding all the caffeine will have left my body, right?

Uh oh...is caffeine bad for babies? =-o Maybe it was my daily Dr Pepper that caused me to have a 10lb + baby!
Someone should have warned me...

A LITTLE caffeine is totally okay! With the limits my doctor set, I figured I could have 2-3 cups of coffee or 6 cans of soda a day...that's not too limited!!! I guess if you made it this far though??? :-) I'm planning to come to the shower...see you then!

Cool! Can't wait for your visit. I don't think I could limit...I have been going back and forth with Starbucks for a while now.
