Ok this is just a scatterbrained list of random but at least I have some belly updates in here and that’s fun.
1.) I am still waiting to blog the shower because people have still not sent me pictures. **Impatiently tapping foot** I uploaded all of mine to this set on flickr, though.
2.) This month – month 7 - Gizmo has been the size of a squash:
Not super descriptive. But it looks a little something like this... 29 Weeks Pregnant:
Look I still have only one chin!
And then I missed 2 weeks because I was super crazy busy getting ready for to have lots of people staying with us. So that brings us to 32 weeks pregnant:
Not so much with the single chin anymore. Also perhaps I should not take these pictures first thing in the morning before I have makeup on. Or am awake. Gah!
Not like there’s anything I can do about it, though. I’m right on track with my weight gain as horrifying as that seems. My 32 week appointment was yesterday and really everything is looking good. Except for the multiple chins.
3.) The baby is now jamming so much that the belly movements are visible from across the room. Also are starting to literally hurt. It’s great the kid has bones and all but pointy! Also for some strange reason Dexter seems to like feeling the baby move. So I end up with the dog leaning on the baby and baby kicking dog because the dog is all up in their business.
What. I like my sibling. Makes a great pillow.
4.) I only have 36 days of work left before my due date. So I’m starting to really think about maternity leave and what all that is going to mean. And my biggest fear (other than the no salary thing. That is so scary thinking about it makes me go fetal so we’ll table that issue for now) is the lack of adult human contact. I’m pretty sure if I have to rely on Matt as my only vein into the real world it will drive us both COMPLETELY INSANE. I need ma peoples! So my friends and I are experimenting with Twitter. I’ve generally been anti-twitter because it seems too much like brain vomit. What I like about blogs is that they are edited stories and not just drivel. The whole “noone cares what you ate for lunch” theory. But I’m guessing that for at least a little while after the baby is born all I’m going to be capable of is unedited brain vomit. And Twitter seems to be the place for quick little updates as opposed to well thought out blog entries. Plus I can do that all from a cell phone and not have to be chained to a computer – which will be nice when I’m wrangling a newborn. So yeah…we’ll see how it goes.
5.) Michele sent this picture from back in the day:
Top row: Jason, Heather, Nancy, Shayne (Michele’s husband) Bottom Row: Matt (my husband), Me, Dan.
It was taken winter break our freshman year of college – so over 10 years ago. What happened was that we all met in Cleveland and went to the Rock Hall and then it started SNOWING. So my parents’ suggested that instead of people driving all the way home to places like Pennsylvania and Canton perhaps they should stay the night – and rent the Shining since it was appropriate. I had never seen the movie before and it scared the crap out of me. Goodtimes.
6.) It’s that time of year again. Ski superpipe is tonight and those bad boys are the craziest of them all. I can’t wait!
