Football games and baby bumps.

7:10 PM

   It is cold and drizzling outside (shocking, I know) and I am all cozied up in a quiet, calm bookstore, with my laptop, books and magazines to keep me company.  I would also mention coffee, except that it's gone now.  Actually, so are the books and magazines, so it's down to my laptop and I.  I have nowhere to go, nothing to do, and therefore, no excuse not to update my blog! So here we go.

   These weren't my original plans for the day.  My day started out with sleeping in WAY later than I do normally, as a result from a long game of Scrabble with Randy the night before.  Even when I did finally wake up, I propped myself up on pillows and read a book until my poor baby demanded food, and went to the kitchen for some yogurt, granola, milk and a blueberry muffin.  If you think you can feel hungry now, just wait until you're pregnant.  Sometimes I'm about positive I can feel when the baby's hungry too.  Of course I'm sure that's just all in my head.  Or my...belly.  Speaking of my belly, you asked for it, more pictures!

   Where was I?  Ah yes, my original plans.  I had planned to go to the football game with Randy, but we woke up and it was cold and rainy with no sign of stopping, and dear Hubby wanted me to go, but even more than that, wanted me to be dry and comfortable.  So we decided he would take his little brother in my place, and I would go shopping.  Works for me. :)  Don't get me wrong, I actually really enjoy going to football games with Randy but I enjoy being dry and warm too, and the latter argument won out.  Plus all I could think about was how sore my bum would get sitting on those hard bleachers, and with my extra weight I've decided I'm not even going to attempt going to games without taking something soft to sit on.  So until I find something somewhat weather-proof, I'll wait for a sunny day to go. :)

This was back around 4 months, and the next few ones were all around 5 months.

   Here I am pictured with my friends Emily (above) and Cindy (below) who are both due in December!  My belly is continuing to grow, and here I am now at about 6 months.  On my trip to Iowa my little Sweet Pea was soo active!  Kicked and rolled like I had never felt before.  Maybe he/she was missing Daddy. :)

O.k. well that's enough for now, must run along.  Hope you all had a lovely, and less rainy weekend!
