I might as well call this what it is because…my boobs have deflated, my belly doesn’t look any different than it did last time and….le sigh.
I JUST LOOK FAT.
And I apparently like to take these pictures right after I get out of the shower…
I don’t see much change from last weekish to this one…do you?
In other pregnancy news…why does your face get fatter the more pregnant you become? I’ve noticed that with myself and with other pregnant women. I mean, I get the water retention and swelling and whatnot but…why the face?!
Also…totally random and unrelated: I bought this new after shower body oil that smells freaking incredible!! I just thought I’d share because it’s my new bath time BFF. Neutrogena Body Oil.
It’s the little things right now, people.
Other than that, I’m am WIPED. OUT. It’s funny how, now, one day of lots of activity turns me into a zombie the next. Yesterday, I took the dogs for a walk (because I can’t run. Sad face) early in the morning and then Tim and I ran errands until around 3:00, when we came home, got dressed and then went over to dinner at the home of an old friend of Tim’s. We’ve lived here for an entire YEAR and this is the first time we’ve managed to get together.
Anyhow, they have a daughter who is a few months past a year old and was super adorable. Tim was having way too much fun playing with her, even though on the way home he was all, “I was surprised she went to you first.”
I looked at him like, “What is THAT supposed to mean? I’m super terrific with kids.”
Then he was all, “That’s just not how it has been in the past.”
And why is that, my dear?
Maybe because the only other “baby” exposure we’ve really had, like, EVER, is with our nephew in Rochester and whenever we’re *in* Rochester, everyone wants the little nephew to hang out with “Uncle Tim” while “Aunt Jessica” sits in the background.
I mean, I get it. It’s no big deal and it’s partly my fault because I put myself in the background on purpose while Tim goes all gaga. It’s the first nephew, everyone thinks Tim is baby crazy (and he is) and it’s his family.
I’m sure I know my family would do the same thing to me if I wasn’t the oldest and the only one really in the position to, you know, procreate.
Suffice it to say, I think Tim was slightly surprised that *I* had the baby magnet before he did…at least last night. Their daughter toddled up to me while we were sitting at the dinner table and asked to be picked up without any prompting from anyone.
I guess he just didn’t realize that I’ve got SKILLS…along with a child of
my our own currently INSIDE OF ME.
He has no idea how that changes a person…inside and out. He will come February…when baby sprout is out and they can have some one-on-one time.
Eventually, I relented and passed her over to Tim, just so, you know, he didn’t feel left out.
