Can someone please tell me why it’s SO hard to sleep the month or so before baby is born? Isn’t this when I should be getting some of my best sleep, BEFORE baby gets here? YEESH!
Get a load of my “cankles!!” (no, they are NOT usually this big…) I mean WOAH.
I miss my shoes. I’ve been wearing one pair of flip flops pretty much everywhere I go, even with jeans. (which is usually a no-no in my book) because nothing else fits. I think they miss me too.
In the same vein I’ve reached the point where I am tired of my maternity wardrobe. And at this point, I can kinda understand why muumuus used to be preferred pregnancy outfit. Not that I would EVER go there.
We are driving to Austin this weekend to attend the wedding reception of a friend and visit family. It’s our first drive out there since moving and I am NOT looking forward to all the time in the car. All I gotta say is, God bless the portable DVD player.
The B Man has been drawing like crazy lately. All of the sudden he’s drawing and coloring pictures of all kinds of things, including the entire cast of Sponge Bob (see below). His Patrick is quite good. Actually, they all are. He also drew me an entire ocean today complete with all kinds of sea life. He’s so proud of himself and I love it. OH and I’m totally proud too and love telling him so. (btw, those crazy blue scribbles at the top are his younger brother’s ‘additions’ to the art work)
I think my Little G is cute and WOW, so does the general public. Seriously, we cannot go anywhere without people just fawning over him. Yesterday while out at lunch an elderly lady stopped by our table and said “He is just the most precious thing” and ran her wrinkled hand softly over his hair. It was really so sweet.
Here in Louisiana you have to specify how you want your tea. Sweet or Unsweet. I’m still not used to this. Although not drinking that much tea right now, when I do order it I always forget to say “Unsweet.” Wonder how long it will take until I get in the habit…
I have to water my plants before I leave for the weekend. Y’all help me remember, okay?
I made these cupcakes (well ‘pound cakes’ according to Martha) on Wednesday and they were quite tasty. They were my first attempt to make something out of the Martha Stewart cupcake cookbook, given to me by this wonderful woman.
Okey Doke. That’s all for now.
Enjoy the holiday weekend. Here’s to one less day in the carpool line! : )
