Growing Belly

Between the first visit and the second visit to the doctor I lost 2 pounds. I thought that was strange since I didn't get sick and my clothes felt tighter. At the last doctor's visit I gained 2 pounds, which now brings me back to my original starting weight. How can I be the same weight when I can't fit into my shorts? I guess it could be worse.

As you can see from the photo I have a belly button ring. I asked my doc if I have to take it out as the belly grows. She said as long as it doesn't get infected or hurt I can keep it in. That's good because if that thing comes out, it's never going back in.

The summer of music

Kevin, Sandra and I went to the Bon Jovi concert in Boston on July 10. I have loved Bon Jovi for years and figured I should expose the baby at a young age to great music. The concert was great ( I am sure the baby loved it too) but there was one major disappointing event. Kevin was kind enough to ask one of the workers at the memorabilia table if there were any Bon Jovi baby onesies for sale. I think she snickered a bit and told Kevin no. What's up with that? I can't be the only one who wants one for a baby.

I know I said I wouldn't post until after our vacation, but I had to show everyone what Steve made for our 2nd anniversary. We said we wouldn't exchange gifts on our actual anniversary date, but celebrate it during our vacation in California. So instead of doing that, Steve decided to make a sign for my classroom. Take a look at it (he made the pencils too)! He cut each wooden letter and then painted them too. I can't wait to hang it outside room 11. Maybe I'll have him make one for the baby's room too!

1st baby pic

I was mean and made Steve keep his mouth shut until we got the first picture of the baby. I felt bad (just a little) because he was bursting at the seams just wanting to tell everyone. I felt better waiting 3 months before we shared the news. When we finally shared the news we got tears, screams and even a few really bad suggestions for baby names (see the poll on the blog).

Baby News!

We found out right around Mother's Day that we were expecting. Since I thought the first pregnancy test couldn't be right, I made Steve go out and buy another one. Sure enough they both said the same thing..pregnant!
