Thank you for your sweet comments on my prego mego post yesterday! You all are too nice
Not much going on with us this weekend.
I’m currently laying in bed watching Bridezillas and Brent is playing golf with my brother and our brother-in-law. I am getting a little restless being inside so much, especially on such a pretty weekend, but I know it’s for the best. For one, I can’t walk around much and last night I had quite a few bad cramps. I’m thinking I might read a magazine on the porch for a few minutes. We could probably use some vitamin D.
On my heart this weekend……We have some friends who are expecting their first baby. They are about 20 weeks along and this past week they found out they are having a boy, but that there are some also some complications. I’m not sure on details yet, but if you could say a prayer for them, I would appreciate it! They are going to a specialist this week.
Friday evening, we took a trip to Target. Since I had already been up a little during the day, I gave in and decided to use the scooter. I was hoping at 9pm on Friday night not many people would be there. The first people we saw were Brent’s parents, haha. They expected the scooter, but it was still quite busy for my attempt not to run into people or shelves,
which I did. From this picture, it is apparent there is a LARGE difference in the size of my belly right now and 25 weeks with Cohen. I know I said yesterday that looking at the comparison I didn’t see much difference, but well, it’s there, haha.
Of course we browsed the baby section at Target. We saw this cute little button up on clearance for $4.00, and of course, decided Knox needed it. The smallest size left was 24 months, but I figured he would grow into it. I really have no problem getting bigger sizes because they will wear them eventually! In case you can’t tell from the style of picture, it’s white and navy 😉
While at Target, we also had to get Elton some medication for pain/inflammation. He hurt is leg or arm or paw…something. We were pretty sure it was the back left leg, but today it seems more like front right. I noticed after I let him in from a potty on Friday morning that he was limping. Occasionally, that happens, but it passes. Well It seem to kept getting worse and by Friday afternoon he was yelping and whimpering off and on when he walked and moved. It was pretty much breaking my heart. I think the meds have helped. Yesterday it seemed to be a lot better, but today I’ve noticed more yelping. I think one of the main issues is we have been letting him back in our bed and it’s very high off the ground. I can’t imagine jumping up and down is good for his boo boo. Brent tries to pick up and set him off, but sometimes Elton jumps before he gets a chance.
We rented the first part of the new Harry Potter Friday night, but I fell asleep. I’ve tried like 5 times now to catch up on all the HP movies, but I just never make it through. I don’t know if they are just so long, or what. Brent really liked whichever one it was 😉
Tomorrow, Brent’s mom is going to take some pics of us, my belly, etc., so yesterday morning I spent trying to pick out some outfits. Not really an easy task lately. I don’t think I’ve ever posted all of my maternity pictures she took when I was pregnant with Cohen, but I’ve posted some here and there. Here are a handful of them. I’m so very thankful that we took them. I thought since my belly is quite large right now, we should go ahead and take a few while I can still be up and around
and lift this belly. I also figured we would be taking pictures right about now for Cohen’s first year, so I’m trying to incorporate something in for that.
So besides trying on outfits yesterday, I laid around and watched TV and played online. Pretty typically. Brent with my brother to see the Hangover 2. He said it was pretty good, but it seemed like they tried pretty hard to out due the first, so maybe it was a bit over the top at times. I didn’t feel up to sitting in the theater chair. When he got home, we did venture to the cupcake shop. We wanted to get cupcakes for some friends, and of course I had to get one…
I was in bed early due to cramps. Brent made turkey burgers for dinner. I hate eating in bed, but I just did not feel like getting out. I made sure to be careful. We watched the A-Team and Stone. Well, Brent watched the A-Team. I lost connection with it only watched parts. It was too loud and busy for my mood, I suppose. We then watched Stone. It kept my attention, but it was pretty out there.
I drank about 170 ounces of water yesterday. I’m somehow still not water logged. I can feel that I need it.
We woke up bright and early this morning for Brent to go golfing. I woke up hungry and ate watermelon and apples. Two hours later, I was hungry again, so I busted out the toaster strudels….
I’ve also been been munching on these this weekend. One is the orzo salad I posted here. The other is black bean and corn salad..or salsa. I know I’ve talked about it but I guess I haven’t posted the recipe. I will do that soon! (my mom dropped these off, I didn’t make them
I just posted about all the flowers and herbs I now I have. My mom planted another on Friday….
Bridezillas is still on. The girls are seriously nuts. I feel bad for the people around them.
I think we are going to Cheesecake Factory tonight with my parents and brother, since he is in town. That’s what I’m looking forward to today
No plans at all tomorrow! I will be thinking of those who have fought and died while at war.
So….this is our weekend thus far, haha. Not all very exciting and you are probably thinking you wasted time reading this post!
I hope you are having a good weekend
Since tomorrow is Memorial Day, I won’t be doing a giveaway this week. I am also skipping next week for Cohen’s birthday. You still have time to enter this fun giveaway ending tonight. A new one will start on the 13th…and it has to do with nail polish!
