Thursday Thirteen

Today I present to you Thirteen random thoughts:

1. I'm really into the Biggest Loser this season. I DO NOT like Vicky though. She is EVIL. I really hope she gets voted off soon.
2. Alaena has recently learned that she can put her arms through her crib and reach the Diaper Champ. I'm trying to double and triple check that I don't leave any diapers sitting in the top because apparently 9 month olds don't know you shouldn't play with diapers (thank God she hasn't gotten any dirty ones!!)
3. I just found out that my friend Christa is having a little boy. So exciting, a future hubby for Alaena! LOL! Seriously though, I'm really excited for her.
4. Not only that, but my friend Allison is having a girl so Alaena gets a best friend and a hubby all within a couple of months!
5. I'm seriously glad I have friends having babies because that means I have someone to share the baby wealth with. People were seriously generous when I had my baby showers for Alaena. But now that she's outgrowing stuff, I am quite short on storage space. So they are getting the mother load of stuff, Christa will get the neutral stuff of course. For some reason she didn't feel her little boy needed a pink swing! LOL!
6. I went the other day to buy my dress for my friend Leah B's wedding in June. We're on a downswing of the bridesmaid thing I think. Only a few single friends left. But this actually was a pretty dress, AND I got to buy it 2 sizes smaller than the one in the wedding I was in BEFORE I was pregnant, so I'm very excited. That means all those salads are paying off!
7. Not only have I been eating salads, but I have been working out on the Wii Fit which really makes working out fun, but I have been bad this week because when Alaena was sick I got out of the groove of daily workouts. I've got to get back in the groove.
8. Speaking of groove, for Christmas I asked for the Dance, Dance Revolution game, so that I would have a variety of work out options.
9. I also asked for the Jillian Michaels game because after watching her on the Biggest Loser, I seriously think her workout would really whip me into shape!
10. Of course, I may not need all of these workout things because chasing Alaena around is becoming quite the workout in and of itself. She is pulling herself up walking around stuff, and she is INTO EVERYTHING.
11. Because she is into everything, she has learned the words, "No, no!" And she is doing her part to teach them to my dog Colby. She chases him around going, "no, no, no, no, no, no, no!" Poor Colby, but he loves her!
12. Because my child is so hyper, I am looking for active toys for Christmas, in order for her to put her energies into something that it's okay for her to get into!
13. And believe it or not, it's not even Thanksgiving yet, and I am almost done Christmas shopping. Now this may not be amazing to you in any way, but I have never finished shopping before the week of Christmas. This is truly a momentous occasion!!
So, what's been going on with all of you?

You should try to get the Wii Fit. I'm surprised at how much of a workout it is!

New babies. Babies of any kind give me hope. :) Happy TT!

Isn't it amazing how fast they outgrow things? That's great that you have friends you can pass things on to.

You have almost finished christmas shopping? I haven't actually started yet.

Kids really do grow up fast. My daughter is 2 and I don't know where the time went.
