Catching Up With Lists and Photos

June 25, 2008

I guess I’ve caught that Summer bug where all you want to do is daydream and play outside. I haven’t really felt like blogging all that much, even though so much has been going on!

So, here’s a quick rundown:

– As I mentioned earlier, I can feel the baby movin’ and shakin’ on a daily basis now. I can also feel him getting stronger as the days go by, too!

– I joined a local pregnancy group and have met several friends through it. Last weekend, there was a couples dinner at North by Northwest restaurant in Austin. Kevin and I went and had SO much fun! Here’s a pic of all the pregnant ladies who attended. Click for larger photo.

– Swimming is the best exercise ever for when you’re pregnant. You stay cool and refreshed and still burn as many calories as if you’re trunkin’ along on a treadmill. Plus, you don’t feel like an elephant in quicksand when you’re swimming. I’m just sayin’!

– It’s now less than a month until Kevin and I travel back to California for my baby shower! We are both so happy to be seeing our families.

– As my little ticker over to the right, in the sidebar, says: I’m 21 weeks and 5 days! Wow! Here’s my latest “baby bump” photo in full-size glory:

– No new car in my future, yet. I think we’re going to share one car until my due date gets closer, which will give us time to focus on other important events. Things such as traveling to California and moving into our house. After that, we’re going to look at getting a family car for me.

Yay for lists and photos! 🙂 Hope you all are enjoying your Summer so far! I am!

THIS COMMENT HAS BEEN DELETED. Why? Because he decided to be an ugly, jealous troll. I’m leaving a link to his blog up (because, really, you have to comment more than once for the “nofollow” to kick-in anyway), so I remember who the idiots are on the internet.

It’s so cool that you found a little baby bump group! That’s such a pretty picture 🙂

Aren’t you just a busy little mother! Glad you found a pregnancy group. My sister-in-law made some great friends through one of those groups that she’s still close to, to this day (14 yrs later.)
Also, the baby bump is beautiful.:)
Take care!

goinglikesixty needs to get a life….sort of seems like he’s trying to bring you down. not cool. coming from someone who sees you a LOT (i’m her family) your baby bump is DEFINITELY big and noticeable- not to mention absolutely beautiful.

katelin – Thank you! I feel cute. 😉 The group is a lot of fun and I am so glad I decided to get to know a bunch of strangers!

GoingLikeSixty – I’m sorry you’re such a crotchety, grouchy, jealous old man who will never feel the miracle of life growing inside you. Too bad you want a baby bump, because, sadly, you’ll never ever have one. *sniff* 😥 Go spread your bad attitude elsewhere, thankyouverymuch. PS – You’re comments will be moderated from now on. Have a great day!

Jenn – Thanks!!! Yeah, that group is awesome. I’m so glad I joined!

Angie – That’s so great to hear! I hope to be friends with some of these moms for a long time, too. 🙂 And thank you!

Cara – Thanks for backing me up! You’re the bestest sister ever. Love you!


cara June 26, 2008 at 12:51 pm

oh snap!!


Binary Blonde June 26, 2008 at 12:59 pm

Cara – Haha! He brought out the mama bear in me. Rawr! No one messes with my Binary Boy.. or his bump!

As a father of 9, with a 10th on the way July 21st 2008, I can appreciate your happiness in finding peers. 🙂 Worth a Digg.

Binary Blonde July 1, 2008 at 10:04 pm

Gunfighter – Thank ya, Sir!

Guy Vestal – Wow, 10! So many blessings!

simple Mindz – Thank you! I appreciate you saying so. Making me blush over here, though. Heehee!
