A Good Day

  • Levin came over the spend the morning with me. He and I had breakfast together, took a nap together, and played with dominoes and a stuffed dog together.

  • Joe and I went to Taco Bell to get a free Doritos taco because someone stole some base in some baseball game.  Free tacos taste good.

  • We found out if the baby is a boy or girl. It is unquestionably a boy. You could have knocked me down with a feather...so much for mother's intuition. I've never seen Joe in such a good mood.
Not the picture, but a good one just the same.

  • We talked with every member of my family via Google+ Hangout to share the news. It was so great to see and hear everyone.
Abe is present via Skype on an iPad on my lap. Thank you Neighbor Jane for the picture.

Today was a very, very good day.

Why I Like Being Pregnant

  • Wearing spankies (leggings) instead of pants on a regular basis is acceptable. 
  • In yoga class it's ok to not do certain (usually more difficult and gravity defying) poses anymore and instead sip on my water bottle.
  • When Joe asks why I am crying the response, "I don't know," is now completely satisfactory.
  • I actually want to eat vegetables (a first). Though that is probably counter balanced by the french fries and jolly ranchers I always seem to want (though, to be fair, they were about all I could stomach for a few weeks).
  • A nap on most days is a legitimate need. Unless I want to be in bed at 8:00pm.
  • I've never been more hydrated in my life.
  • My finger nails are awesome. 
  • I felt it* move for the first time on Friday. I think.
I just thought you'd want to know.

*It will no longer be an it next week. Guesses and speculations are welcome.
