FINALLY the belly!
It's not like Paparazzi are following me in my station wagon, but enough of you want to see my belly as it grows, so here is a the first of a few installments of my progress. I am starting to feel like a real baby chuckwagon now, all boobs and tummy, kind of like a cafe-in-construction for the little one. I think I am going to get a trench coat and sew little pockets for condiments and silverware so I can just flash the coat open and be a full service baby feeding center. Fresh ground pepper with that? Finally, though, I don't mind. The physical changes have not really been my bag, but since I got that ultrasound, I am feeling so much better. The little swimmer was so cute and wiggly, how can anyone resist a tiny dancer with hot-feet? Oh, and the signature hands on hips as if I am struggling under the weight! Tyler liked that touch, but I am definitely not straining yet! You will know when I start to strain, oh yes.
And, the fashion shot! I went to Goodwill for the day-after-Christmas sale with T, Ryan and Rebecca who were in town from Providence, RI. Rebecca was an awesome shopping partner, encouraging me to try things that I normally turn my nose up at. This brown dress was one of them, but she was right! It is darling. Good work, Rebecca. That was my first day outfit for volunteering at the Cascade Land Conservancy. It went great.
