Around here Monday was a warm day, in the 60s, so warm, I took Gwen out back to play in her house. Unfortunately for us how the town house is situated, cold days are too cold to play in the house, so we don't often go out there now that it is winter. But Monday, we went out there and Gwen was SUPER excited!

I took this picture so you could see how nice the back of her hair looks now that it has been cut! It was so straggly before and I think Angela did a great job!

Gwen has a good time in her house but I get rather bored, b/c in this state I am not going to crawl in there with her, and even though I really should pull some weeds while I am out there, I am not allowed to do yard work unless I am wearing gloves, one of those lovely pregnancy side effects. Who can remember to do that!?
Gwen is also apparently making up for her lack of nap the other day by taking 2 long naps, today and yesterday. Right now we are looking at 3+, yesterday was a solid 3 hr nap! Poor kid. It seems that we might be winter stormed in tomorrow, which would be bad, not because I would be stuck inside with Gwen all day, but us ladies were going to go to the movies tomorrow night and see a chick flick! How long has it been since you've been to the movies to see a chick flick?
Remember when I mentioned baby #2 doesn't move at all compared to Gwen, well in the last couple of days baby #2 is starting to exert their authority, I swear last night the child was either conducting a orchastra I seriously felt like what the bag of popcorn must feel like while the popcorn is popping. I am hoping that means baby #2 will be defending itself, but I wasn't hoping that it would have to do that inside my uterus. Does this mean I am destined to have 2 high energy children, that go non-stop? Well, I guess since I am used to it, it won't be too much of an adjustment, at least that is what I am telling myself!

Hey Mel! Why do you have to wear gloves to weed while pregnant? I've never heard that...

Speaking of movies - the last time I went to see a movie was 3 years ago - and it was Cars (for the boys to see)... Wow how times change:)
