a beautiful-ish thing.
Thought it would be fun to post how pregnancy is so far...mostly just so i can laugh at myself later.
I got some cool ultrasound pics i just have been dying to post...i think he's handsome just like his daddy...
So my husband and anyone that has to spend anytime whatsoever around me can vouch that pregnancy turns me into a monster of sorts :
Sometimes, ok usually i cry during cheesy commercials
any time i watch a babystory on TLC i am crying within 30 seconds
Ok... crying over everything.
Jake HAS made late-night runs to the store for various cravings such as: ice cream, sno-cones, and if he could've found one, watermelon
breakfast, then second breakfast, lunch and second lunch, then dinner and dessert
And Most recently:
AMONG MANY OTHER THINGS I'M SURE.
I KNOW I MAKE PREGNANCY SOUND MISERABLE (AND IT CAN BE) IT IS ALSO AN AMAZING BLESSING AND MIRACLE. I LOVE BEING PREGNANT. RIGHT DOWN TO THE SLEEPLESS NIGHTS I CAN'T WAIT TO BRING HOME OUR SWEET LITTLE BOY. I FEEL SO BLESSED TO BE A FUTURE MOMMY:]

IN NEXT COLOR- (usually the color of your hat)
In the SL ST you just created in black, insert your hook and loop the next color through.
