So, you can all read this post and laugh and poke fun all you want, but I am happy so there! The other day I bought my first real baby item (not including the clothing I have purchased here and there because they were on sale). I bought a stroller! It was super exciting and made the fact that I am having a baby more real. I got it on sale (thank heavens, it was super overly expensive) at Babies R' Us. I had been looking at this kind for a while now and I really liked certain patterns from Graco, but found it hard to find a place that carried the patterns I liked. Sears only carried the "Samuel" collection, and like it's name, I found it to be quite masculine. Anyways, it doesn't matter now, because I found everything I want at Babies R' Us, all in the pattern I like. I registered there (another thing I am a little early for but whatever), and hopefully the pack and play (which I am eyeing next) comes in stock soon.

Hmmm…nothing much else in other news. Josh and I don’t do a lot, since I am on the freakin’ 3 month flu like plan. Josh has been getting back into his school and work routine. His schedule is the pits, with classes almost every evening. It sucks because we’re spending a lot on gas to and from town but I just keep telling myself it’s his last semester and then he’s done! I am so proud of him. I know he doesn’t see graduating as a big deal, but I think it is a huge accomplishment. He’s a smart cookie.
So yea, I guess that’s it. People have been asking about posting baby belly pictures, but honestly, there isn’t too much to look at. Oh, and I just want to go on a little rant for a second. I don’t know why people feel the need to touch my stomach! It’s not baby yet. It’s just bloating. It’s funny, because people come up (the best is when it’s people I hardly know) and they rub my tummy and say “oh, there’s a baby in there” and I am more like “it’s more like you’re rubbing my gas…thank you”. Oh man, it’s so weird. And awkward. Kristine, I know you had a thing with this too. I totally know what you mean now! And now I am done ranting. Hope you all have a good day!

Let’s begin on Christmas Eve where we went to Josh’s parent’s house for Chinese food. The food was super yummy, even tho I totally didn’t eat a lot. I was trying to be more of a “keep what you eat” down kinda gal, so once I started feeling sick, I gotta stop. Baby needs its beef and broccoli! Then we went to the Nativity Pageant and even tho it was super freezing out, it was a nice time. I love the mingling part afterwards too. I got to chat with Keah and Karen, whom I don’t get to see often so that was nice. Karen and I captured it on camera, of course. Don’t we look so cute in our winter apparel? Josh and I made it home around 9 pm, and hurried to bed so Santa could come. I was so excited that I was up by 6 am on Christmas day. I laid in bed until about 7:30, couldn’t wait any longer, and jumped on Josh until he conceded. We did the whole opening presents from each other thing. Josh got me some cute clothes that I can wear with my growing tummy, and some books and stuff. He’s a very good present picker outer, I always love what he gets me.
We then made our way to my mum and dad’s house for a day of feasting and funness. I think you can all agree that the best place to be over the holidays is at your mum’s house. You can eat as much as you want, because calories don’t count. You can lounge and gossip and just enjoy each others company. I just love going there. I feel like it’s really Christmas when we walk into their house. I suppose it doesn’t hurt that Santa leaves us tons of goodies and presents either. We are totally spoiled rotten.
We had an early supper so we could get back to Josh’s parents house for a few hours (since they won’t let us open gifts before the actual Christmas day). My mum made the best food, and I didn’t even throw it up. No wait, I did. But still it was worth it!
By the time we got home that evening, Josh and I were totally tuckered out. I don’t even remember what we did, but I think it involved me popping in a movie and falling asleep.
Over the next few days, in which I did not work at all, yay, we got to visit friends and play Wii (which I am in love with and plan on buying one as soon as flippin’ Future Shop gets some in). We got to eat leftovers and visit with my brother who was in from Toronto. I even convinced everyone to get in a family photo. You can tell by the results that no one was overly excited…but at least half of us faked it! I don’t know what’s with my family hating pictures. And then I marry Josh..the Anti-Smiler! On New Years Eve we were invited to Doug and Jessamyn’s for some good ol’ fashioned gaming. We played board games and video games and it was awesome. Tragically, the girl team lost and we owe the boys supper. Actually, I don’t think it’s that bad because I wont mind cooking with friends around. And there is that whole “if you cooked, you don’t have to do the dishes” rule. Nice. Claudine was nice enough to snap some pictures of our good times. Josh and I played boxing and she even got that on video. I don’t know how to put a video on here, so just imagine. Oh, and I won, so picture that too! Jessamyn, Kristine and I whooped the men bums at Settlers. Sadly we all lost to J.J and Sheldon in Pop Culture Trivial Pursuit.
All and all, it was a super nice holiday break and I was sour to have to get back to work. I just keep counting down the days until maternity leave (178, in case you were wondering). Hope you are all recovering from your festivities and that the New Year brings more fun (if that’s even possible).
Oh, side note: Ashley Quist, you best be having the bestest day today. You’re 24!!! Yay!
