As promised, I was good and actually took a belly pic for you guys this week (as opposed to last week when I had the cold from SATAN and was essentially non-functioning). Still no baby belly, but I do wonder if I'm starting to look a little 'thicker'. My weight still essentially has not changed from pre-pregnancy (which is just fine, considering this is essentially a plus-sized pregnancy!). Although I do think that weight is redistributing a bit! I must say, it is getting more and more difficult to keep 'side boob' out of the picture because there's more to cover up these days! Anyhow, without further adieu, here is my 'essentially not changed much at all' seven week belly pic! =]
Oh! Oh! And I got some fun things in the mail today that I wanted to share with you! =] I lady from one of the websites I frequent has a little girl and was kind enough to send Stick and I a gift! I still don't know what motivated her to do so, but I am very excited and very thankful for it! It was definitely like Christmas getting that box in the mail today because I knew it was coming, but I had no idea what was in it! Very practical gifts but I couldn't be more excited about them!
In the back, you see a box of 124 Pampers Newborn diapers. They go to 10 pounds, and quite frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if that's all we're going to need in that size for Stick! If s/he's anything like his/her daddy, I doubt s/he'll stay small for long! =] In the front left, you see a swaddler. I've heard wonderful things about this invention and I cannot WAIT to try it out! And, on the front right, you see the part of the gift that I'm most especially intrigued by (even though I'm sure it will be the last one used!). They're Munchkin fresh food feeders. You can put fruit or veggies right inside the little pouch part and then the kiddo can just suck on them to their heart's content without the danger of choking! Here, I've pulled a better picture of them from Amazon for your viewing pleasure.
I can't wait to use these things! The concept is so simple yet so incredibly ingenious at the same time! Mrs. Morris, if you're reading this, please note that both "Stick" and I THANK YOU very, very much for your contribution to this next part of our lives. =] We really appreciate it!
And then, as long as I had my camera out, I realized that I haven't shown you guys the onesie that Kelly's sister bought for "Stick" yet either. She put quite a bit of thought behind it and I think it's adorable! It's gray and purple and, according to her, "If it's a girl, it's purple. If it's a boy, it's Vikings!" Haha. I love it!
And of course, if you're having trouble reading the writing on the front, it says, "My Auntie is #1!" Hahaha! Stick will definitely have to wear this while visiting his/her auntie in a year or so. =]
And, one last quick picture to share with you guys. It's not Stick-related per se, but it's definitely Mommy and Daddy related! We're both kind of nuts when it comes to the holidays, so, for your viewing pleasure, this is what Christmas looks like in the Olson residence this year. =]
If you don't hear from me again before Wednesday, you will definitely be hearing from me on Wednesday after our first prenatal doctor's appointment! Keep your fingers crossed that everything goes well! =]
