Two down, many more to go!

Today is the third day of eating on the South Beach Diet, I'm not necessarily trying to lose weight, but I'm trying not to gain anymore (thus I will be losing as I'm gaining) I have already gained 30 pounds this pregnancy, and I don't need to gain anymore. I am so proud of myself for finally taking this step, it doesn't make me like my current look, but when I look in the mirror, I know I'm doing something about it! I am so excited!! This diet isn't even really like a diet, I get to eat as much of the right foods as I want! So I'm never hungry, it's awesome! I also think JD is getting better nutrition now then he was before. Things have been much better since I've started, it's amazing how much your attitude changes when you're doing things that are good for you. I've been more productive around the house, and I don't seem to feel as tired. I am SO excited!! Anyway, Saturday is Hailey's 6th birthday, I can't believe it! It's crazy how fast the time goes by. She's extremely excited for her birthday, and for Friday night. My sister Gina is coming to pick her up and take her to dinner, then she's taking her to Build-A-Bear to let her make her own bear. Although Hailey doesn't know any of this, so if any of you readers talk to Hailey, DON'T mention this to her so she's surprised. Then next week I have a doctors appointment on Thursday, and I've reached the two week mark, so I'll go back to the doctor two weeks after that. Then on Friday Randy and I are taking off to St. George for the weekend!!! I am so excited!! Our friends Marc and Heather are also going down so we'll hang out with them for some of the time. It has been a while since we've gone away without the kids. This trip will be like our Valentines Day, Birthday and Anniversary trip all in one. I'm pretty sure I've already said that in a previous post, oh well. Anyway, things are going well, I'm excited to get past this month and on to the next one! It also gets me closer to JD coming, I'm looking forward to having him here with us and not being pregnant anymore. I'm ready for the aches to go away!! Well, I think I promised pictures, but I don't have any ready yet, but hopefully soon!

Valentines Day

So, the big V Day is coming up, and I'm excited for it. We're not really doing anything to celebrate, but it will be fun to do something special for the girls. Hailey had her Valentines party at school today, she was so excited!! There's so many people I love, and I'm so grateful for them in my life! On a different note, at the end of this month we're going to St. George, just Randy and I! I am so excited!!! It will be so nice to have a weekend to ourselves, I think the thing I'm looking forward to the most is sleeping in and having an entire day where I don't have to do anything for anyone else. This trip is basically our Valentines Day, my birthday, and our anniversary celebration all combined. I'm not planning on doing much for my birthday and we won't be able to do much of anything for our anniversary (JD will hopefully make his appearance just a few days before, actually I'm hoping he'll come on the 3rd or 4th) so this will be the one and only away trip for a little while. I'm excited!! Our good friends might also be coming with us, and it would be fun to be able to hang out with them too. Well, life here is just moving along, it's amazing how fast it seems to go sometimes. Hailey will be turning 6 on the 20th, it's crazy how fast the time goes, I still remember the day she was born. I am really looking forward to spending time with just her, it's always fun to spend one on one time with kids. They're so different when it's just them. I'm sure we'll end up going to McDonalds for her birthday lunch, they like to go there because of the playplace. Then I'll take her to the Dollar store and let her pick out 6 things that she wants. She's excited for that! I have been trying to decide if I want to let her have a party this year with her friends, we've never had one before, and I'm not sure if I'm quite ready for it. Maybe I'll wait until her next birthday, I don't know. Randy and I will have to discuss it and think about it. Well, I really don't have much to say, things are going well, the pregnancy is going well, and the girls are all doing ok! Another post without pictures, but I promise I'll try to put some up soon. Until next time, be safe and have fun!!
