Claude went home to his parents last night leaving me all alone to reminisce about our time together. I was especially fond of this photo of him laying his head on my pregnant belly while I watched Toy Story 3. A very age appropriate film for Claude.
But one cannot forget his wrestle with the couch video:
Even though I was sad to see Claude go, it was amazing to see how happy he was to be reunited with his Mom and Dad. He couldn’t stop the wiggles. It made me really look forward to being one myself, a Mom for a little baby girl named.
WHO also just received her FIRST PAIR OF SHOES and they are kick ass cute! Jennifer and Ted, Claude’s parents picked her out these adorable little moccasins on their trip to Sedona.
Oh, let the shoe fetish begin. I love shoes. I can’t get enough of them. This is a great beginning. I am very impressed.
And lastly I was cleaning the house just now when I started touching my belly and suddenly I felt something soft and strange there. I looked down, perplexed, and realized it was my belly button sticking out. What a trip. It must have snuck out overnight because I don’t remember it being there before.
There are also pockets of cellulite in some very fascinating places beginning to grow, creating a whole new shape of me from behind that I am sure is quite Rubenesque. However, my dear friend Katie assured me today at breakfast that it goes back to normal, whatever that is for you. And by looking at her, who is absolutely gorgeous with two adorable little girls, you’d never guess she gained 50 pounds with both her pregnancies. She’s tiny. So there is hope. I am going to try and appreciate my medieval curves and pretend like it just shows our wealth. Our wealth of love, that is.
Your Dad comes home Monday morning. I can’t wait. It seems like it is so far away. But in the meantime, you have jumped in size from a tomato to a banana. I guess they measure you from head to toe now, not just to your butt, which I can’t wait to bite.
I love you. I just want to hold you in my arms so badly it makes me cry sometimes.
