Week 14 – Lemon

Week 14 – Lemon

What’s the saying? When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

I rather like these alternatives to when life gives you lemons….

  • Squeeze them in people’s eyes
  • Add tequila and salt
  • Keep them, because hey, free lemons
  • Make orange juice, and leave the world wondering how you did it

And this actually made me laugh out loud

Don’t worry, no elves helped me make this recipe!

Okay, focus, Angie, focus. 14 weeks. Squinting, frowning and grimacing are the big baby milestones this week. Which I found interesting because those seem to be faces you’d make if you were to suck on a lemon. Our fake babies are 3.5 inches long. But, this is only from head to rear. They get long and skinny first, then put on their weight in the 3rd trimester. They’re just 1.5 oz right now.

While lemons contain high amounts of vitamin C they also can worsen ulcers and reflux due to their acid content. Did you know that drinking lemon water can help inhibit the growth of certain types of kidney stones?

So, now you’re probably thinking what are we making this week? Enough of the chit chat. I’m hungry. Well, lemon pie fat bombs, of course! I believe this is my first venture with a fat bomb, and I must say I’m a fan! #fatbombfan
