Pregnancy Update....and other things

1) Second Trimester Here we come!
That's right! Twelve weeks and into the 2nd trimester. I'm starting to show more and more....even if I'm still one of the only ones that can really tell. Though someone did ask me at the gym if I was pregnant...so there's proof that I have an official baby belly going on! (And they were really brave to ask me that at this point....what if I had said no?) I'm still having some really bad days but I'm starting to have more and more good days. I haven't thrown up in 5 days! Woo-hoo! (Although yesterday was a little shaky after I very stupidly ate some guacamole....NOT a good idea.) The baby is about 2 inches long now and growing very fast!

I know I've had lots of requests for a baby blog like last time but the truth is I just really don't have time to keep it up like I should....I'll post updates on here though as often as I can. Last time I was working away from home and like any good employee I updated the blog at work....now I have a home business and a 2 year old.

2) Hockey

So Chase likes to go to hockey games! We went with some friends this weekend and had a great time! Chase is very serious as he watches....you might not think he was having fun....but then he talks about how great it was for days!

Here he is with his friend Alex:

3) Where is Spring?

The only thing worse than getting out in 18 degree weather is getting out with a kid in 18 degree weather. We can get all bundled up and get in the car in the garage which isn't that bad but then when you get where ever you are going you can't just get out and run in. Like today for instance I took Chase to Son Shine School. I get out and have to go around, open the front door and get the bag and lunch, open Chase's door and unbuckle him, put his gloves back on him because of course he had to suck his thumb in the car, get him down with one hand and drag him across the parking lot while he's saying "I hold you, I hold you." "No, Chase just run it's warm inside....lets go fast it will be fun." " I hold you, I hold you." "No come on look how fun this is!" Is that considered a lie?....I mean it WAS NOT FUN. :) But once we were inside all was well and he made a bee line to his class and started playing with his friends.....and I ran back to the car and got right in....no car seat for the next 5 hours!

4) New Look

What do you think about the new look for the blog? I had this whole other design done that I was not able to use. Blogger has changed a lot since I first started posting. I thought I would be able to just add the HTML that I needed to be able to have my own design.....but no I was only able to use the top banner. It was very humbling as a mediocre ex-web designer to realize, "Wow...this is way to complicated for me."

I think this is the best design in the whole world!

Thanks for posting! I REALLY can't wait to play "mom" on Friday night. Glad you're feeling a little bit better! See you soon :)

Ha! I don't want to hear any complaints about 18 degree weather. I am dealing with single digits here in Amarillo!!

I love The Watterson Post! Looks great. I could just see you and Chase going into school - made me laugh. You know, it is in the
50's in Houston....come on down! Love you, Melanie/Mimi

Like the new design! Too bad you couldn't use your original idea, I'm sure it was great too. Also, I'm beginning to think about planning my high school reunion, so I may ask you some questions about yours, since our schools were similar sizes... just to put the bug in your ear. More later :)

Now I am mad at you! I just saw Windi's blog and saw that you made a trip to DFW without a call to your friends in Fort Worth;(
