Happy Wednesday!

Well, hello there.

What have I got for you today?  Not a lot.

Sorry.  I hope you have your own interests and hobbies to distract you.

But here are a few things I feel like sharing:

I just felt like saying that.  Plus, I think this is pretty.

I learned that today is Prematurity Awareness Day.  This post in particular has some pretty helpful links.

I just feel like reminding you that I am married to a fabulous baker.  Fabulous.

I'm going to see the new Harry Potter movie this weekend.  I had thought about re-reading the last book beforehand, but now I think I'll just be surprised at all the parts I forgot.  Exciting!

I want to re-read the Harry Potter books this winter, though.  They're prime cold-weather books.

Mamaw called me last night to say she enjoyed the ultrasound picture I sent her.  We had a nice ten-minute talk about how clear the ultrasound picture is, how pretty the baby is, how we want her to look like me, and how excited everyone is about her very existence.  Then I told her I'd send her pictures of myself pregnant because I thought she would be impressed.

Just because, here's a series of pictures of me pregnant:

14 weeks

15 weeks

16 weeks

17 weeks

18 weeks

19 weeks

20 weeks

21 weeks

22 weeks (holy smokes)

23 weeks

Well, that was fun, right?


I'm impressed/weirded out by myself right now.

And to Mom, because I know you'll probably notice: yes, I do think I've gotten a little chubbier in the arms these last few days.  Happy?  No?  Well, neither is Cody.  It's okay, though.  I promise to get chubbier.  You can count on it!  I'm like a mutant whose superpower is rapidly expanding to accommodate the awesome baby I'm growing.  Yes, I know this is what all those other pregnant chicks are doing, and have been doing for thousands of years.  Let me feel special!  It's exciting to feel like a member of the X-Men.  Or to grow a baby.  Either way.  Same difference.

You know those cloth or board books for babies that just pictures of something in a theme?  It's usually farm animals, or colors, or shapes, or maybe activities.  I realized yesterday that we're going to need some for superheros.  Then I realized that we'd probably need separate books for the DC and Marvel universes.  And then I realized we'd probably need a book for the major X-Men players (not every single one--I'm not taking it that far) and one for the Justice League.  Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this?  Maybe felt would work.  Maybe just insignias.

Sometimes I tune out Cody when he talks about his comics.  

Clearly, I am not doing it enough.

We're halfway through the week!

I'm done now.

Loved the picture series! You can totally tell a big difference between 19 weeks and 20 weeks! It just keeps getting more exciting!
