A sort of, kind of, belly picture post

Since we didn't start taking "traditional" bump shots until 20 weeks, I decided to just throw together some photos I have, wherein I happen to be pregnant :)

6 weeks, I actually didn't even know I was pregnant until the day after this picture was taken

13 weeks - I was having a hard time finding clothes to hide my bump before Dalan's graduation.

13 weeks - thanks Husband for strategically placing your diploma frame in this picture ;)

14 weeks

14.5 weeks - announcement picture, we actually didn't share this with anyone until about 3 weeks later.

17 weeks

20 weeks

24 weeks (today!)

Holy crap only four more months to go!

I find THIS

Absolutely hilarious. If Scout could talk I'm pretty sure her explanation would be something like below:

"Mom! You know how there are monsters living in closets? Well, the pantry is basically a closet, it's a kitchen closet, and there is a monster living in ours! A really, really big monster, taller than dad, and he has yellow eyes and furry teeth! I was just sitting on my pillow, looking out the window, and minding my own business when I heard a noise. I followed the sound and found the pantry door was closed, but hadn't been pushed in far enough for the latch to catch. I scratched and scratched and scratched at the side of the door until finally it slowly creeped open. Behind the door, there was the monster! Did I mention he was kinda wet and slimy? Like a slug. So I grabbed the thing closest to me, I darted between his legs and dragged out that ginormo bag of pancake mix, (you know the one from Costco that's too tall to fit on the shelf, so you set it on the ground instead?) I ripped open the bag and tipped it over. When the dry absorbent powder touched the feet of my attacker, it actually started to dissolve his moist flesh. I quickly coated myself in a protective layer and charged! It was touch-and-go for awhile, while the dry powder would dissolve him, when his sticky flesh came into contact with my dry coating it began to create a plaster, filling my nostrils, mouth, and sealing much of my fur together in what seemed a permanent bond. I prevailed in the end, the slug-like, furry-toothed monster collapsed, and then I um, ate him (that's why there wasn't a body, duh). Oh, and Tobey helped too."

A short post with no pictures

Second trimester absolutely rocks! My nausea finally(!) went away, I'm getting my energy back (no more lunch time naps AND I can cook dinner), and I can feel Dude kick pretty regularly now.

That is all. I think I will take an extra non-flattering, side-shot of my expanding mid-section this weekend.

Apparently I enjoy using hyphens. -- -
