Week 31

I don't have many pictures of myself on my blog.  I guess that is because I'm usually the one behind the camera.  I was always amazed while reading NieNie's blog (BC) with how many pictures she was in and how great she always looked.  Who took all those pictures? I wondered. Well, today I handed the camera to Kaia and asked her to take my picture.  Last night at the playroom in the gym a little girl kept staring at me.  She was probably 3 or 4 years-old.  Finally she said, "Your belly is REALLY big!"  I just smiled and said, "That's because there is a baby in there."  She proceeded to look at me like I was totally crazy and just making up stuff to justify my abnormality.  I wondered if it was possible that she'd never seen a pregnant lady before.  I guess I could have been just like her at that age because I was an only child and was about 6 or 7 before another cousin came along.  Her parents probably told her that storks deliver babies to your doorstep...and they probably let her believe the Easter Bunny is real too.

Anyway, I thought there should at least be one picture of me to document this pregnancy.  Also, my kids believe in the Easter Bunny, just in case you were wondering.

Ok I sooo love maternity photos. When you get a little bigger you need to let me take some photos of you! I need learn how to use a camera OUTSIDE of a studio.

I was wondering if you kids believed in the easter bunny when you said that! LOL! I wish I only go that big when I got pregnant. I am that big about 20 weeks---latest!!!!!!!! And I'm not joking!

You look great! Hope you see you guys soon. We have family plans this weekend and next so maybe in 3 weekends?

I have a few sunbeams who give me 'you're a crazy lady' look when they comment on my belly and I tell them about the baby. I think it's one part three-year-old looniness and one part being an only or youngest child. Either way, I think the looks are funny. :)

You look great for 31 weeks by the way - I always retain something like 21 gallons of water by then.
