I decided to sign up for WIC again since sushiboy has cut back on hours and we could use a little assistance. The lovely thing about WIC is that they use the BMI charts to measure whether you are a healthy weight or not. These don't work for me. So, according to WIC, my prepregnancy weight put me into the obese category. NICE. They also told me I needed to only gain 15-20 lbs the entire pregnancy and since I've already gained 30 I needed to try not to gain any more weight. Well, since I've eaten pretty healthy and I don't think I look obese and my doctor tells me my weight gain this pregnancy has been good and I'll probably gain another 10 or so these last 13 weeks or so I think I'll listen to my doctor and not the nutritionist at WIC. It's always lovely to hear you're obeses, especially when you're not. Now don't get me wrong. There is definitely a few pounds to lose on my body mabey 10-15 more, I don't think that makes me obese. Probably just normal.
Cookie's birthday was on sunday. I can't believe it, six years ago I became a mom for the first time. The time really has gone by quickly. I'm so glad to have him for a son. On sunday we also had a huge regional conference for all 134 stakes in this area (a stake is a group of wards, a ward is a group within a certain area for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints). It was obviously broadcast to all the stake centers from a building in the area. We had some speakers from the first presidency and quorum of the twelve speak. I was looking forward to it. I try to do the right thing and take my kids to church every sunday and teach them about the Savior and His life and to try to be like Him. However, church has been difficult lately. Cookie has been terrible. It's like I'm dealing with a two year old. He will make lots of noise, or bug all of us or just be a general skunk. It has been difficult. We've been taking away video game priviledges when he behaves this way. Sunday was the WORST. He lost priviledges for a full week. I guess it's time to change tactics because this obviously isn't working. My mom had some great ideas and we'll be trying those. I sent Sushi to take cookie to get a two wheeled scooter on Saturday afternoon and also something from the toy store with the money his grandma gave him. Sushi went nuts. He came back with two sets of legos plus the two wheeled scooter and another set of legos that cookie chose with grandma's money. He also came back with a small set of legos for cakes and a barbie for cakes. I just had to laugh. At least the two had fun. On sunday night we had one of cookie's favorite dinners, roast with mashed potatoes, corn, green salad, and scones. After dinner we had cupcakes and icecream. I think cookie had a good birthday other than losing video game priviledges for a week. He certainly got spoiled plenty! His friend birthday party will be this friday. I'm sure I'll have plenty to post about that day.
Well, that's the major things that have been going on, I hope life has been simpler for you!
