Has it really been a week?

I can't believe a week has gone by since my last post. Wow!

My week ended better last week than it started. My boss finally remembered my birthday on Friday. DH made dinner Wednesday night. He said pancakes sounded good so I made him make them. THEN he tells me over the weekend--when I was still razzing him about not getting me ANYTHING for my birthday--that he plans to take me shopping so we can pick out an elliptical. Well, then, WHY didn't you tell me that ON MY BIRTHDAY?!?!?! ARGH. Men. They just don't get it.

I was reading Roni's blog about her over indulgent weekend and all the comments and I realized something. Since I have been pregnant, I don't go back for seconds at dinner. I used to before I got pregnant and if I had the points I definitely would. Even last night, we had spaghetti. I ate my one plate and I was done. I think it helps that sometimes at night I still feel a little yucky from the day so I don't eat as much. But if I do eat more (maybe a snack after dinner, which I RARELY do) I pay for it later. So that is a good thing and it helps! I haven't stepped on the scales and I won't until next week(I have an appointment on Monday). Seeing it go up is too discouraging even though it is supposed to be going up!

I finally bit the bullet Friday night and pulled out the maternity tops. I was down to 2 or 3 shirts that fit and even those were a little snug. I just felt so fat in them. So I wore a maternity shirt out Friday night for the first time and I felt SO MUCH BETTER!!! I didn't feel fat at all. I will have DH take a picture this week and I will get it posted.

Have you all started your Christmas shopping yet? I've got my list of who I'm buying for and know what a few of them will be getting. I need to get started b/c I only have 1 free weekend in December. AACK!!! And that's the very beginning of December. I'm having the hardest time with my son. I have NO CLUE what to get him. He's 3 and a half and this year I am stuck. Any ideas out there for me??? He's got GeoTrax, he's got a kitchen (and he loves it!), he's out of the Elmo stage. I am just lost. I think DH and I are going to go out on Saturday and spend the day together and we might have to hit Toys R Us so we can get some ideas. I told DH he had to help me decide this year and if he didn't I would get him a drum set. :)

I think that's it for now. I will try to post more this week. I will definitely post a picture of DS in his Halloween costume. He is so excited to go trick-or-treating! He even sings the song...trick or treat, smell my feet..... I taught him that. :)

Have a great OP Tuesday all!!!

An elliptical - how cool is that!! Too bad he couldn't have told you that on your birthday, duh!!

Pancakes for your birthday......hmmmm, maybe our hubbys are brothers - mine took me to IHOP a couple of years ago for my birthday dinner.....nice, huh! Nothing says I love you like sausage and fried eggs!

Funny that you ask about the week - I was looking at the baby bar on your page and I can't believe that you're almost 14 weeks prego - are we going to find out what you're having???

Hmmm.. Christmas shopping. I have gotten one gift for my little guy and that's IT. (It's a tool belt with a real mini hammer, tape measure, safety goggles, etc) just like daddy's. My son is a HUGE fan of the GeoTrax too. He got a few extra pieces for his b-day this year, but I'm stuck as to what else to get him. Every time we go to a friend's to play he gravitates to the play kitchen and stays there the WHOLE time. Everyone finds it so cute that the little boy is drawn to the kitchen. I think it's great that he wants to cook, a real bonus for his wife in the years to come! As for ideas for yours... does he have a big-kid bike? maybe something leapfrog or v-tech? (mine loves his leapfrog schoolbus).
That's great about the elliptical! Are you finding it hard to exercise now that you're pg? I'm trying to keep up with it, but the smell of sweat at the gym makes me gag (what DOESN'T these days?!). I might just have to find something to do here at home.

Oh I am so excited to see the costume! I just LOVE Halloween!
The elliptical is a GREAT gift and I think it should make up for no dinner! You will definetly love having that right in the house with the second baby.
I haven't done much shopping yet. I wrote a list of what I would get everyone though.
Have a fun Halloween!!

Funny, I was going to suggest Geo Tracks... my 4 year old loves his... and I like that even if you lose a few parts it still works, and you can always add to it!

Jeremy and I got my nephew a keyboard for Christmas last year. (He's a year older than your DS) It came with headphones and a microphone, so he could just bang away to his heart's content and never bother his parents. Well, you could still hear him screaming into the mic, but he'd be doing that with or without the microphone. It was so cute to listen to him sing his ABC's like he was a rock star, and it's something that can grow with him, too.

I can't wait to see pictures, too!! :o)
