In response:Seriously, what ARE they thinking?!

An awesome fellow blogger recently posted this great post on her blog; Seriously, what ARE they thinking?!
To most points I can only whole heartedly agree but to two I must simply say- some of us with big footed children absolutely need the extra room in the footies... and there is no better time for boys to wear skinny jeans then when they are toddlers. Seriously there is nothing more awesome than a little boy in skinny jeans, case in point:

Second Trimester

I'm at 15 weeks right now and feeling really good. Exhaustion still hits sometimes so I have added iron supplements to my diet but other then that I really feel great. The best part is feeling normal again, and being able to catch up on all the stuff I was missing; I've cooked yummy homemade meals almost every day for the past week- last night we had NYC Vodka Arrabbiata from Jamie Oliver's American cookbook, and a nice fresh salad. Yummy! I added a bit of spinach this time just because last time we loved it but it was SO hot and this time I wanted it a bit more mild- and it was a great addition.
Teddy is also getting way less TV time. No more TV in the mornings except on the weekends, and during the week normally just 10-15 minutes after nap time if he seems crabby.

We also have been getting in lots more outdoor time even though the weather has been gray and rainy. Teddy loves being outside and it is good for me too! At the end of this month we will also find out the sex of the baby- if baby cooperates of course. I don't really have a feel yet but if I had to pick, I would pick girl, solely due to the fact that so far these pregnancies have been almost exactly the same except for the fact that this time I haven't had any heartburn.

I also feel like working out again! I haven't yet... lets not push things here LOL but at least I have thought about it in a positive way.

It's no fun being sick.

I finally hit the second trimester and started to feel good, so of course I came down with something awful. Thankfully I am finishing up my antibiotics and starting to feel great again so I should be back to posting soon.

I can't believe in less than a month Teddy will be 2. In some ways his second year of life was the complete opposite of his first, in terms of how I experienced it and how enjoyable we both seemed to find it. Basically I stopped wishing for the next stage and started hoping that each stage would last a bit longer because they were all so much fun! Maybe the coming baby will show me a different side to life with a baby but as it stands life with a toddler is so, so much better.
