It's so hot outside!

7.19.2010

I mean really, it's unbearable. Heat indexes in the 109s+ scare me. And that's what we've been dealing with. AND I'M PREGNANT. I went to visit an old college roomie over the weekend in Oklahoma. I didn't think it could get any hotter than it's been in Kansas, but apparently it can. We skipped out on the baseball game we'd planned in lieu of putting on jammies, popping open some sparkling grape juice (she's preggo, too!) and watching chick flicks. I must say, it was an awesome weekend.

For those who asked, here's the newest belly picture. I had such great ambitions for doing a weekly picture in the same spot in the same outfit but, well, it hasn't happened. Maybe this week will be the week? Ha, unlikely. 14 weeks and counting! Did I ever mention we're staying on team green? Well we are. And now it's KILLING ME. I keep thinking how we found out with Ben at 15 weeks and that's only one week away! I could know in one week! Oh, the torture.

I think I've shrunk since 12 weeks?

In other news, I'm apparently fantastic at making manly men. Exhibit A (and this was NOT staged, believe it or not):

Do you think I could be as good at making girly girls? We shall see. Sometime in...oh, January. :(

I almost forgot! We got to see the bean in the belly last week! I'll spare you all the details of our TERRIBLE appointment with the most unprofessional ultrasound tech I've ever dealt with in favor of the mushy stuff. The baby picture! S/He still looks pretty ghost-ish, but cute, right? ;)

Diet follow-up!

7.12.2010

Thanks so much for all the patience and e-mails! Wow, I didn't realize how many of you were still interested (and, consequently, how many of you have been patiently waiting for me). I'm sorry for being SUCH a procrastinator on this one. I'm working on getting everything together to send out a mass e-mail, so thanks again!

The diet stuff!

7.11.2010

Okay, new plan. For several reasons, I'm not going to be posting the diet on my blog. Please e-mail me (even if you already did back when I posted about this originally) if you are interested in knowing more and getting a spreadsheet.

Thanks so much! Sorry I can't put all the details up here.

Happy 4th!

I LOST A BIG CHUNK OF THE OLD PICTURES I HAD ON THIS BLOG WHEN I INADVERTENTLY DELETED SOME PICASA ALBUMS.  SAD FACE.  :(

Popping on really quickly to say Happy 4th of July to everyone! It's been a whirlwind weekend for us. Yesterday began at 5:45 a.m. since Tim wanted to run a local race. He placed 42nd out of 1500 which is pretty incredible and 4th in his age bracket, earning him an award! Way to go, babes!

Then we made it to our city's parade which proved to be one gigantic advertisement for local politicians and stores. It was kind of annoying but lesson learned. Then it was lunch & naps for all, followed by some old fashioned popcorn making (Popcorn! On a stove! Who knew?) and a stupid comedy movie to appease Tim. Oh, and then let's not forget about our flooded laundry room that we discovered at 11:00 last night. Man, I love home ownership.

Today's been church, lunch and some more lounging and tonight we're off to see FIREWORKS! Let's just hope my child can handle staying up 'til 11:00 tonight. It's never happened before!

For those who asked, behold the monster belly. No need to tell me, I'm already aware that "it might be twins!" or "man you're huge!" Thanks. Somewhere between 10 weeks and 12, my baby exploded in size.

Just about 12 weeks pregnant, if you can believe it!

I LOST A BIG CHUNK OF THE OLD PICTURES I HAD ON THIS BLOG WHEN I INADVERTENTLY DELETED SOME PICASA ALBUMS

Life is getting back to normal and for that, I am so thankful. My morning sickness is lingering just a little bit, trying desperately to hold on, but overall I'd say life. is. good. I can make it through most of the day without having to lay down to stop the room from spinning. It's mostly just nights that are rough now, but a lot of that is due to exhaustion. By 6:00, I am DONE. Luckily my amazing hubby is more than happy to come home and take over full baby duty, so that's really helped.

Folks, we're almost in the second trimester! I can't believe it! It's going by fast, but this monstrous belly I'm already sporting isn't letting me forget that there's a baby cooking inside me. Some days my mind spins as I try to imagine what it will be like to have two, but I'm excited enough that those moments are fleeting and mostly followed with, "Who cares if it's crazy?! I get another little baby to caress and love and smoosh and kiss!"

In other news, we've found a church that we're pretty sure we'll call home and Ben and I finally jumped into a daytime playgroup that we love! Besides him being known as "the kid who snoops through everyone's diaper bags for sippies," I'd call it a success. Ben gets to socialize and maybe he'll learn the meaning of "share." That's doubtful, but a girl can hope. I counted four sippy cups I had to pull from his mouth today, and none of them were his. Eek!

Sharing makes friends, Ben.
