...since it has become apparant to me that pictures without much text produces ZERO COMMENTS. and i'd like to know, since when did it become all about the comments? why does it feel as if i've failed as a human being if my blogs produce fewer than 3 comments? as much as i adore this whole blogging thing and don't know what i'd do without it, etc. etc. it can also be a tad bit distracting at times and not all that great for the old self image. okay, yes i'm kind of exaggerating here (is that how you spell exaggerating?) but i do kind of get a kick out of my reaction sometimes: "how DARE no one comment? those are GREAT pictures! so what if they're not pictures of my pregnant belly? people could still say SOMETHING nice about them. geez."
enough of that. its TUESDAY!!! my favourite day of the week. it's my day off and today is extra special because josh and i get to see our baby again this afternoon! i have an appointment to see the dr. and my sister in law assures me that this time the ultrasound will be done on my belly. the very best part is that my doctor is so cool that he doesn't have his patients fill their bladders to bursting beforehand. jessica said she never had to have a full bladder; he is so good that he can see the baby fine without it! do i have the best doctor, or what? i'm gonna get our little vhs tape all fast-forwarded past the last ultrasound so that we'll have a nice little collection of baby videos before baby stew is even born. apparently, baby stew is the size of a peach. i can hardly wait until i can give my little peach kisses. kaylee and john like to talk to my baby through my belly button, it's so cute. pretty soon he'll be able to hear us!
the other evening i got busy measuring all of our office furniture to make sure that it could all move into the guest room so that this room could become the nursery. right now images of pale greens and yellows are dancing through my head, though next month that could change. it's SO hard not to buy everything at my work for the baby. i already have a gazillion childrens' books, collected over the past 8 years (many of them signed by the author) and i've picked out a little noah's ark night light that's on hold for me at work. there's also the cutest stuffed bear that's on sale for $5 right now that i really really want, but i still feel like it's so early. rob and jessica gave us 4 plastic bins full of little boy clothes from when john was a baby. if it turns out to be a girl, we'll just store them away until we have a boy. they also gave us their infant carseat (score!) and have a changing table, pack & play, baby bjorn, swing, and bouncy seat for us up in their attic. we are already feeling so blessed by what's being provided. i also got a package in the mail yesterday from my sister in law cara with the cutest pair of maternity jeans and a pair of shorts! we feel overwhelmed and so grateful for the generosity of our friends and family. God sure is great at providing!
time to get out of my pyjamas and get some stuff done around here. keep checking for baby stew's newest photo shoot!
