so, it's another tuesday already and if i don't blog i'll feel guilty. it's funny how time flies when you don't especially want it to. on one hand, i can hardly wait to meet tristan and love him and cuddle him and be his mommy, but on the other hand, i know that these last few months are really the only moments that josh and i will be spending alone and relaxed for a VERRRRY LOOOONG time and i want to savor them.
we've been super busy lately and when we're not out working or doing something else, we've been watching lost...finished season 1 and now are waiting for people to return the first discs of season 2 to blockbuster so that we can watch them. on sunday we celebrated jessica's birthday at my in law's house. it was a GREAT day, not too hot and we ate a lot of food, sat in the shade, watched the kids run through the garden hose and enjoyed little johnny's bellyflops into the kiddie pool. oh yes, cute story about the kiddie pool. i was able to go up to rob and jessica's house on friday and we took the kids to their community pool. john kept requesting to go to the little pool by saying "meow? meow?" knowing that he meant he wanted to go into the kid's pool, but not knowing why he would call it the "meow", we asked kaylee to interpret for us. she informed us that it was because it was the "kitty pool" as if we all should have know that from the beginning. anyhow, i enjoyed a rather large slice of my mom in law's cheesecake at jessica's birthday without feeling an ounce of guilt. (thanks for your encouraging comments, by the way, they really did help)
*here i would have inserted a beautiful picture of jessica blowing out her birthday candles, but because this stupid blogger beta thing is having issues with remembering to add a "done" button to the screen, it isn't working and now i am severely frustrated.*
last night we went to mike and sara's house to watch the chargers/raiders game. okay, so the guys watched the game and me sara and zandra talked. sara's daughter ryan was quite fascinated with my large belly and kept asking me questions about it. she was shocked that baby tristan was swimming because there was water in my belly and she desperately hoped that there was water in her belly too. she asked if he was cold in the water, and i said "no, he's really warm." "because he's wearing socks." she said confidantly. i could hardly bring myself to correct her.
we now have a highchair and a stroller sitting in our living room, thanks to the generosity of rob and jessica, though john had a rather hard time parting with his stroller. our house that used to seem so big is now becoming increasingly smaller and smaller. how can such small little people take up so much room? speaking of which, his kicks have gotten strong enough to where he wake me up at night with them. not painful yet, though, thank goodness. still feeling good, lots of energy and no weird icky feelings. i think that's all i have to say today.
