Still no pictures. Sorry, I don't know where to buy a new charger for my camera! I'm still looking so maybe I'll be able to track one down before Tyler turns three.

We had a party for Tyler's second birthday and I ordered sooo much food it wasn't even funny. It was to the point of embarrassment! You know it's bad when even the waitress apologizes at the end of the meal because she feels that she should have stopped the waste! I don't think I'll ever look at Buca food the same. Remember the children's book Stega Nona? Well, let's just say the pasta on our table looked like the pasta from that book, it was endless and kept on coming! Well, I learned two things from this: #1: Always wait till everyone gets there. Some people ended up not showing up at the last minute. #2: Always run your order with another GIRL. I ran it by Jason and he was like, "Yeah, yeah. That's fine." I'm sure another GIRL would have knocked some sense into me. Well, live and learn. Anyways, it was funny to talk about all things we could do with the leftovers. Richard suggested we go to skid row and drop off the spaghetti on the streets and run for our lives. We talked about how we'll have pasta for the next two weeks. And of course, conversation always turned to, "Cristina, what were you thinking?!" haha...

I'm about 18 weeks now (and looking 30 weeks!). I've gotta say this pregnancy is so much easier than my first. Other than my growing belly, I don't even feel pregnant! With Tyler, I was dizzy for 9 months straight! I remember driving in Portland half dazed and teaching in a haze. I thought that every pregnancy was like my first and that women who said that their pregnancies were easy just had a higher threshold for pain. Well, now I've learned that every pregnancy can be very different.

We have a name for our little boy, and it's pretty set in stone. There is this one person who keeps questioning our choice and that's kind of annoying. I understand mentioning ONCE that you don't like a name that's been picked out, though I think even that can border on being rude. Anyways, this person mentioned it twice and told me that my poor boy will be ridiculed in school. I told her that I'll raise my boy with a tough skin and that he'll have to learn to rise above any taunts over his name. And if he does get teased, I say it'll just make him stronger!

Well, two more weeks and then I'm on Spring Break! Wahoo! After that, it's smooth sailing until Summer Break!

Happy Birthday to the love of my life! Tyler turns 2 today! Funny thing is that whenever he sees his birthday cake, he says, "no!" Like me, he doesn't like unnessessary calories! Well, I wish I could post some pictures of my growing boy but I still haven't been able to buy a new charger so I've been using disposable cameras...sadness! Lately, he's been saying "what the." I don't know where he picked this up...really! But it is the funniest thing. If he hears something, drops something, anything out of the ordinary, he will stop for a second and say, "what the." TOO CUTE!

I had a doctor's appointment today and it looks like bedrest did the trick. Everything looks better and I could go back to work on Monday. Thank God. The doctor also told me that she thinks that we're having a boy! She kept saying that she never knows with 100% accuracy, expecially since today's ultrasound was more to look at my placenta and not to find out the sex of the baby. She also didn't take too much time to double check things, so I'm not even 100% convinced that it is a boy. In any case, we're excited to think that Tyler might have a younger brother!

I was eating spaghetti the other night and there was a knock at my door. Since I was mad eating, my mother in law went to get the door and guess who stood at my doorsteps when I finally put down my fork and turned my head! Claudia and Kate! I was so shocked that I nearly choked on a noodle because I had no idea they were coming from Hong Kong. Though I'm still on bedrest, it's been great having them around to keep me company. Tyler is usually great with Kate but he pulled her hair today and started laughing. Very naughty! We made him say sorry and kiss Kate's head.
