Hello, Sunshine

  1. I have been getting photo requests of the baby bump, so here’s a current one at 18 weeks. There’s not much going on, but there’s definitely something. I hold/rub/feel my belly almost all day long because it makes me feel close to the baby (is that weird? it sounds weird now that I write it down).
  2. That being said, I think I felt her kick last night while laying on the hammock. It’s really hard for me to say, but it felt unlike anything I had felt and was like a little fluttering. Who knows, maybe it was nothing. But, it made me cry, so we’re just going to stick with it being an actual kick and not some strange bodily function.
  3. I found a pair of capris that still fit me. Miracle? Yes.
  4. I went to Seven Peaks with two coworkers/besties last night and it was an absolute blast. I’ve already used this pass four times, far surpassing it’s worth. What a deal. Plus, I treaded water, so it was practically a workout. Yep, I’m counting it as an official workout.
  5. Also about Seven Peaks, I’ve got the WHOLE system figured out for maximum enjoyment. What was an embarrassing breakdown has now turned into a blessing, because I just tell the security guy I’m pregnant, they let me bring in food. I bring in a water bottle and the food people fill it up with ice water, I don’t bring in my wallet so we don’t have to rent a locker, and we park on the street so we don’t have to pay for parking AND I get an extra walk in. Next on the list is how to use a tube for free.
  6. I can’t wait for the 4th of July and for the Freedom Festival on Center Street this weekend. BTOML.
  7. Will someone PLEASE go camping with us on Friday night? Or how about you just come to our house for s’mores and tin foil dinners instead?
  8. T.J. has been calling me “sweetheart” lately. Although, part of me likes it only because it reminds me of my maiden name, “Swainhart,” most of me hates it. I’ve already told him this, so it’s not like I’m going behind my husband’s back here. But now, he has been calling me sweetheart and sweet pea ALL the time. He thinks it’s funny/precious or whatever, but I think we should just stick to calling the baby those terms of endearment, and not me.
  9. I’ve got to make this list an even ten since I already thought of eight items. Oh, I’ve been trying to lift a bit, working out my arms, so then when the big babe comes I actually have enough muscle to carry her.
  10. I {kind of} apologize for talking about my pregnancy so much. I will try to hold back, but as you know, and my mom has pointed out dozens of times, I just can’t hold anything back and want to share everything with everyone. That being said, a little fact about me is that I am not exactly the best secret-holder.

    I think the best way to get a tube for free is to hang around people who have tubes and loudly complain that you don’t have one, then hope that they are about to leave and will give you theirs. It happened to me once, minus dropping the hints, and it was awesome.
