Oh pregnancy cravings. With my first child, I had so many food aversions – chocolate was on that list. Lo and behold, my first born hates chocolate. Blasphemy, right?! This pregnancy I can’t even tell you what I crave because I crave EVERYTHING. Just give me food, any kind of food, and this baby is a happy camper. This child takes after her father. Today, she wants chocolate chip cookies with extra chocolate. Who am I to argue with my unborn fetus? Bring on the extra chocolate, chocolate chip cookies! These are oh so yummy and the best part? I don’t have to share with my 2 1/2 year old.
