Freaking What to Expect has the nerve to tell me not to eat dessert, then asks me if I'm satisfied with the app. Um, NO. Just tell me whatever fruit my baby looks like this week and keep your judgmental opinions to yourself.
|Don't judge me.|
I'll eat dessert whenever I damn well please. That was the method I went with the first time around and look how well that turned out.
|On the weekends, we wake up and take selfies.|
Probably my biggest accomplishment this weekend was staying up until nearly 11pm at Girls Night In with some BFFs. We ordered food and watched Magic Mike XXL. I hadn't seen the original, but somehow I managed to catch on. My favorite part was Michael Strahan's striptease. Seriously the best thing to ever happen to me was watching Kelly and Michael daily on maternity leave. I literally cannot wait to snuggle up with that new baby and those two talk show hosts.
Instead of wine, I had this.
Quite delicious and even sort of looked like wine when poured in to a wine glass!
Sunday was the first day of Hanukkah. We celebrated both holidays growing up, my dad is Jewish and my mom is Christian, so we are continuing the tradition with our kids (and my sister is with my niece and nephew).
First, we put our Hanukkah gift from my dad to good use - annual passes to the zoo!
|Checking out the actual Baltimore ravens.|
Even a non - animal lover such as myself enjoyed a good zoo trip growing up. Although not all the animals were out in December, Dalton didn't care and had the time of his life. I think he just loved being outdoors with wide open spaces to run around.
|Despite the lack of smiling pictures, he really did have fun.|
Of course, for Hanukkah dinner, we had latkes.
|Smelled like childhood.|
|Dinner by menorah.|
It hasn't been at all consistent but I've felt a few baby movements here and there! I'm more and more sure it's a boy. Once I really have a big baby belly I'm going to do all the old wives tales like the ring on a string and everything. Chinese gender predictor says girl. It was right for Dalton, so we will see!
Have you ever gone through an anti-exercise phase? I'm ok with it while I'm pregnant (#sleepnowwhileyoucan), but my concern is that having two kids won't be a cure for this problem.
