Lady tests out baby rocker

Tom Lies gave us some of his daughter’s baby stuff.  This is one of the items he gave us. It rocks/vibrates and plays music. When I first turned it on, Lady was scared of it. Once I picked her up and laid her in it, she instantly relaxed and loved it. It put her to sleep. Let’s hope it works that good for Baby P.


30 weeks update

In the last 2 weeks, I feel like my baby bump has gotten much bigger. Certain activities are getting hard to do. This be my last week doing insanity. I am continuing to instruct Body Pump, Kickboxing and Zumba (roughly 4-5 classes/week). In the next 2-3 weeks, I will finish up training clients. I am hoping to instruct through the end of February/early March. We will see how I feel in a month.

The things a 4-year old thinks of…

We got to babysit Ben while Nick and Taylor went on vacation. It was a lot of fun having him. He got to feel the baby kick so that was pretty cool. His eyes lit up when he felt her. 🙂 Later I told him that, the baby was kicking me a lot. His reply “Maybe the baby doesn’t like you?” Ha! I thought that was just too funny!

Later Mike and I took Ben out to Space Aliens. He then asked me “how will the baby get out of you?”. I replied “I will push her out”. He then asked, “Out of your mouth?” Ha! Next subject please. 🙂

Best Friends Reunite

After the holidays, we had a fun girls’ weekend at my place.  It included vegging out, getting the girls hooked on “Shameless”, a little wine drinking (NA for me, of course) and a lot of laughs. We also went to Toasted Frog one night for dinner. We indulged in their famous fried pickles and the girls tried a variety of martinis. We ended the night at the movies. It was so perfect to have a relaxing weekend with them. Just what the doctor ordered. 🙂

I had my 24 week appointment. Our little girl’s heart beat was 159. Each week she is starting to kick more and more. I can now see my belly move too. It’s pretty cool.
