Batman craze!

since i pulled out safi boy's halloween costume for our ward's trunk-or-treat last friday, he has been batman everyday since. he wears his cape, belt, and mask e v e r y w h e r e -to the store, while he rides his scooter, when he watches his movies, to bed, and YES, even in the shower! (it's that serious!) 

he looks like the buffest 'lil man ever with his instant biceps and 300 abs!

...and what's even better than having one batman mask?

having TWO!

i told him to smile when i was taking this picture but he's [ so serious ] when he has his mask on.

i can't wait to take my 'lil guy trick-or-treating on wednesday. hopefully this year he understand the concept a little better and doesn't walk right into people's houses after they open their front doors. we'll have to see what funny stories i come back with this halloween.

it's 4 am....been up since 2...and will probably stay up untilllllll...the rest of the day. i don't know what it is about this pregnancy but i just don't sleep! catching up on people's lives through pinterest, instagram and facebook got boring (there's not really that much activity going on at this hour) so now i'm on here writing nonsense and thinking randomly.

i'm currently late-night morning snacking and this baby is rolling and kicking like crazy! i'm looking down and watching my belly jerk and jiggle every time he moves. he must really be diggin' this peanut butter and banana rollup. it seems like every time i take a bite of anything, he goes cray cray up hurr! i just did the math and realized this guy is going to be here in 2 1/2 months! where did time go?! i'm really loosing it these day, not only with the track of time but i also do weird things -like grab my husband the red rooster hot sauce when he asked for a bottle of water or i'll be picking up around our place and stop to fill up my son's sippy cup but instead of fill it up i through it away in the trash (with out even realizing it) and then spend 10 minutes looking for it while my son cries for "abble choose". (yes, i know that last sentence was the longest run on sentence. it's too early. who cares.) and what's even crazier is i almost got a puppy. could you image the madness of me already trying to potty train my stubborn son while potty training a dog at the same time?! that might send me over the edge and to the loony bin. anyways, i'm just going to blame these brain farts on the combination of my lack of sleep, pregnancy hormones, and fact that i have a crazy, almost-three-year-old. 

since this baby will be here before we know it, i better get started on my [ end of year bucket list ]. 

[  ] -take my son to the pumpkin patch
[  ] -trick-o-treating at Disneyland (maybe i'll get festive and dress up with my son...maybe.)
[  ] -redecorate our bedroom that i never decorated in the first place
[  ] -finish my son's baby book (before the next one gets here)
[  ] -"battle of the cupcakes" with my sisters at thanksgiving
[  ] -(maybe) find a new apartment

...more to be added once i'm fully awake.

here's a sneak people of the new fabric i got to make the new bedding for our bedroom. i can't wait to see how it turns out.

pop, pop, POPPIN' IT!

I  C A N ' T  W A I T  T O  G E T  M Y  B O D Y  B A C K ! ! !

...things don't fit the same anymore, my hips, thighs, and toosh feel, well -HUGE, my face looks like a blow fish, and i have a constant pain in my lower back/tail bone region (sorry, TMI?). every time i see my doctor she tells me i need to slow down on my eating. i gained 5 lbs last month and she asked me in surprise, "WHAT ARE YOU EATING?!" wth? really? what a friggin beezy! honestly, i thought i was doing to good, because my last pregnancy i literally ate everything and gained 60 lbs (and i'm nowhere near that right now) i'm pretty damn proud of myself this time around. my body isn't made like a match stick, so no matter what i do there's no way i'm only gaining 20 lbs my entire pregnancy. screw my doctor. i know my body better than she does. i lost all the baby weight and then some last pregnancy, so i'm pretty sure i can do it again. somehow my mom and all my aunties got smaller after each of their pregnancies -i'm hoping i inherited the same genes and i loose another 15 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight. i know i sound so vain right now but i don't deal with all the prego changes so well.

anyways, as i start my third trimester working out has become harder. but i found a new routine that keeps my motivated... Z U M B A ! i wish i could go to an actual class instead, but my gym membership is still canceled. so youtube is just going to have to work for now. by the end of each workout i'm dripping in sweat and the best thing about it is it doesn't even feel like a workout because you're dancing the entire time. if you really want an intense workout i found this cray-cray latina chick whose workouts buuuuuuuurrrrn. [ try it out ] if you don't believe me. it's HI-larious trying to
 [ pop it ] when i have this huge belly in the front. (my equilibrium is so off!) good thing i'm doing it in the comfort of my own home -for my eyes only. ha!

i'm almost 28 weeks now. all this poppin' and booty shaking better keep my weight in check until this baby boy arrives.

oh, and there's my son. he dances sometimes with me but mostly just stands there and laughs at me. he thinks his mama is crazy!

random funny things

[just a few funny things i wanted to remember.]

the other night before bed we were kneeling down together for family prayer and i was helping my son pray. as i was whispering into his ear what to say, he whispered back (what i thought) everything i was telling him. but as i listened to him a little closer i realized he wasn't copying what i was saying, but instead quietly singing, "yo ho yo ho a pirates life for me..." i couldn't help but bust up laughing in the middle of prayer. i know, so irreverent. this kid kills me sometimes! ha!

most recently, today he came into the bedroom and asked me for my phone. after he walked out i went to go check on him and this is what i found...

...potty break while catching up on facebook. 
(i wonder who he got this idea from?...and it's not me)
