Old news at last...

It's about time that I fill everyone in on what's been going on! First and foremost, I feel great!I'm happy to report that I do believe I am over my morning sickness phase! Yahoo! Next, I finally have a car, which means Tyler got a truck! He got a 2002 Chevy Silverado. It is in such great shape, and it is huge compared to his toyota. It's great riding in it with Cameron; we all have so much room and I'm not sitting 2 inches away from the dashboard with Cameron kicking my seat every 5 seconds.

Next, we got cameron his first tricycle. It's very cheap, (price and quality) but it was rated by consumers as being the best among all other reasonably priced trikes out there. He really struggled the first day to reach the pedals and get going by himself. But by the second day, he started to get the hang of it! It'll still be a while before he grasps the steering part, but in the meantime, he just picks it up and moves it wherever he wants!

I've starting doing water aerobics once a week. I'm hoping to do it at least twice a week, but we'll see. I love it. It's really the only exercise option I have when I'm pregnant. All other forms of exercising cause my heart rate to be extremely high. (again, only when I'm pregnant) But doing water aerobics has been great. I've never had a problem with it in either pregnancy. This class is much harder than my prenatal water aerobics class I took with Cameron. I love this one so much more! It is a real workout, and I can actually feel my muscles working. I do the modified versions of exercises that work my abs (not recommended while pregnant) and I try and do the harder version for everything else. Another woman in my class commented on how I was making a certain move more difficult than it needed to be. I told her, 'Well, I figure I might as well push myself, or what's the point of being here?' I really wonder about people that workout halfheartedly. It's better than nothing, I agree. But if people would just push themselves, instead of giving up the second they feel their muscles working, that's when the real magic begins! That's when the toning happens. That's when the fat is burned. I could go on forever, but I'll stop there. I LOVE EXERCISE!
