B is for Babies…I am feeling big now. I’m 18 weeks’ish now and feel like when I walk my belly is leading the way, not true of course, not yet anyway. Chris says you can tell I am pregnant, I’m thinking I’m just looking extra fluffy. Hahaha Via the really cool pregnancy website, 3DPregnancy, we got to see a 3d picture of the baby and found that she is 8 inches long now! That seems big, but not at the same time. My pants aren’t fitting and I am loving stretchy clothes. I’m sure within the next couple of weeks I’ll look more pregnant.
The kids excitement is big and loud enough for everyone. We talk about the baby at least every day, if not more. They did stop asking if I was keeping the baby warm if I covered up, but do ask if it is the baby who wanted orange juice or a chicken strip. Of course I say yes. We go in at the end of the month for an ultrasound and could find out the sex (pending the baby’s cooperation of course!) but I don’t think we are going to. We have a girl and boy now, and though we found out with Jake, we didn’t with Alice but just knew. I feel like I know now, but it feels different once in a while, so who knows what that means!
In other baby new I started crocheting a baby blanket yesterday! It’s just like the blue one I made a few months ago but with softer yarn and bigger. It is so early I’m hoping I can crank out three of them fairly quickly – one for the new baby and one for each of my baby nephews. I’m making all of them yellow and white (just because that’s the yarn I have!) and with different lines of patterns so they won’t completely match.
And Books! I don’t have anything to read since finishing Harry Potter. I’m debating rereading 100 Years of Solitude (one of THE best books ever and definitely high up on my favorite list) but considering it’s the only Gabriel Garcia Marquez I’ve read, I think I need to branch out. I’m going to get Love in the Time of Cholera – John Cusack mentions the book in at least two movies (that I can remember) so why not.
