Have you heard of the celebrity baby boom that seems to be going on in Hollywood? Almost a dozen notables are pregnant right now, from Reese Witherspoon (who I adore and I love that fact she didn’t “announce” her pregnancy) to Kourtney Kardashian to ( I hate to even put her name in this post) Snookie.
But the one generating the most publicity? Jessica Simpson.
She’s going a little overboard, acting as if she is the first woman to ever give birth. I understand her excitement, but she’s been spilling her guts to anyone who will listen about EVERY. DETAIL. OF. HER. PREGNANCY! C’mon. She also posed nude on the cover of Elle Magazine. I know it is all for publicity and she’s laughing all the way to the bank, but again, C’mon!
I recently saw an interview where she said she ate cheesecake for breakfast that morning and fried chicken for lunch. Not smart, Jess. I’m not one to knock the way women look while they are pregnant (some people did that to me while I was still reporting on air) but healthy eating is so important while pregnant. Check out one of my favorite blogs, www.ladyplusbaby.com. The author is 48 and about to give birth to her first child. She also got pregnant “naturally” and it was a total surprise!
This great blog also has posts from a nutritionist, who writes about how important it is to eat healthy foods while pregnant. Jess should read it!
Which brings me to another point. New studies suggest that what you eat during pregnancy can affect what your child eats for the rest of their lives! I’m a little concerned about our picky eater right now…
because he won’t touch any type of meat! He doesn’t like chicken, hamburger, turkey, lunch meat, any of it! And guess what? I’m not a huge meat eater, either and I barely touched the stuff when I was pregnant. We are working on it. I’m trying to make sure he has a well-rounded diet, but it’s challenging right now.
Parents, what are your tips for picky eaters?
Now on to my last and final thought of the day: Little boys clothes!
There is nothing cuter to me than a little boy in bib overalls! While there are way, way, way more girls clothes out there than clothes for little boys, I think bib overalls are just precious! Yesterday, I purchased some new bibs for Blake and some new rompers…
Seeing him dressed so cute and innocent in these little clothes just puts me in my happy place! I know that I won’t be able to dress him like this for very long, so I’m going to get my fill of these cute clothes while I can!
Now I’d love to hear your thoughts. What do you think of all the self-imposed hype surrounding Jessica Simpson and her pregnancy?
How do you deal with picky eaters?
How do you like to dress your children? Do you have clothes you especially love to dress them in?
Enjoy this beautiful Thursday!
