Every Excuse in the Book
I was going to title this post "No Excuses" but since I am about to give you every excuse I can think of as to why I haven't been blogging it just didn't seem to fit.
Yes, I know I abandon this blog for weeks at a time. I do apologize but I swear it’s this adorable little urchin who keeps me from going near the computer at home.
Please ignore the red eye, I didn’t have a chance to get rid of it. I was actually trying to take a pic of the sofa behind him but when he saw the camera and realized I wasn’t pointing at him he moved right into the frame as if to say “hey woman, I’m right here, why are you pointing that thing in the wrong direction?” It was so cute that I was forced to take the pic. The other one was him being silly after I took the first pic. Did you notice the mouthful of teeth he has now?? He already has his molars, which almost killed us all. He doesn’t have the canines yet but they are right near the surface and will be coming through soon. I still can’t believe he’s already 17-months-old and looking like a little boy.
Now, if I had time at work I would blog more but usually my days are packed with A/R, A/P, payroll and insurance billing. None of that is fun of course but if I still want to get a paycheck they do tend to have to get done. :-) I am stealing the time today because I just couldn’t stand it any more.
I have to admit that I’ve neglected a lot of things during this pregnancy, not just this blog. Given Aiden’s constant movement around the house and need for his mommy’s attention I haven’t taken even one belly pic. Seriously. Poor Olivia has already become the second child that has no pictures taken of her. Today I am 36-weeks and I decided that I was going to take one for sure so I went to the bathroom at work. Not the most flattering of lighting and it’s a self portrait but this is the very pregnant me today.
Just to compare – this is me at 34-weeks with Aiden. Yes, I know it's two weeks difference but I don't have a 36-week photo with me to compare things to at this point.
I think I look about the same size (other than my boobs are even bigger) but that I seem higher. Am I imagining that? I don’t know.
Anyway, this is just a quick update to let you know that I’m still here (because people are actually still checking on me and wondering!!) and things are going great. I go back to my midwife this afternoon for my 36-week check and I guess things could happen any day now. I will definitely keep you posted!
