I have been neglecting my blog for no good reason other than I am feeling so much better that I have been out doing stuff! I know it sounds crazy that my lazy ass could manage that, but it is true. I started cooking dinner and grocery shopping again (much to the delight of my hubby). I even started showing up for swim practice again. I am loving this second trimester stuff. Things are going peachy with baby and I have started having the food cravings. My favorite thing in the world right now is Pirate's Booty. Tried it? It is like a healthier version of a cheese puff and I loooooove it. I have bags of it all around my house. I am obsessed.

I did put down the booty long enough to participate in a few wedding activities for my friends. A very nice nice shower and THEN a bachelorette/pleasure party. Oh yeah. That was fun. There were some very interesting "toys" passed around and I think the bride to be got some good tips on keeping things spicy. I didn't get any really juicy pics (I am just figuring out how to take pics with my phone) but here is an example of a great bachelorette cake.

Second Trimester, here I come

I can see the light at the end of the first trimester. Yeah! As of this weekend I will have made it through the first 12 weeks! As my reward for making it through, the nausea seems to have gone away (for the last few days at least). It has been replaced with bed-at-8pm tired. I feel like I have run a marathon, yet I can barely make it off the couch. I am sure this is nothing compared to I-have-a-newborn sleep deprivation, but I am beginning to get the idea. I don't mind too much. At least now I have an excuse to be lazy. Before I was lazy for no good reason.
It has been fun to see hubby start to get into Dad mode. He has been obsessively searching for a video camera. I have never seen him so determined. He finally ordered one that arrived at our house yesterday. He was so excited that he just had to begin filming. This did not really work for me since he insisted on filming me and as I mentioned before, I was almost asleep (even though the sun was still out). Somehow I don't think that will make for very exciting television. My poor parents will probably be the recipients of that oh so exciting video.
