7ish week baby belly

Dear baby,
I keep telling dad that we need to take these in the same spot, same clothing, each week; but you'll soon learn that we can be a little flaky at times.  I've developed a sore throat, and carrying the laundry up the stairs today turned into an unexpected trial, because breathing isn't terribly pleasant when you have a sore throat.  

Every time I sing one of my songs I think of you. I find myself constantly wondering how you'll be, and who you'll be. Who's personality will you have? Will you have my eyes, nose? I can't wait to meet you baby.  There are so many people here that are excited to meet you, and I won't be lying to say that we've waited our whole lives for the opportunity.  

Here's my picture--the upper part of my belly is definitely bigger than it was 3 weeks ago.  I don't know what is bloat, and what is baby...and my eating habits still aren't stellar.  Sorry kid, but you make me hungry and queezy at the same time, so I hope you like peanut butter cap'n crunch and apple sauce.  

We still haven't told the world about you.  I'm not sure when we will, but I've found the most adorable announcement that I want to use, so you're going to be announced in style.  We aren't super organized people, so be proud of this ;).  



  1. Hungry and queasy... I remember that feeling! But it's a good thing, because it means that you're PREGNANT!!! :D

  2. P.S. Love the baby belly!! I can't wait to watch your belly grow over these next 8-ish months!
