Over the weekend I majorly grew! I thought it was going to happen because I kept feeling my ligaments stretch, but I didn't realize it would be an overnight growth. Crazy! One of the 8th graders (whom I taught when he was in 5th grade) saw me today and said, "Mrs. Garton, you're getting fat!" LOL Good thing I am a confident person or I would be feeling really bad about myself right now!
I had Roy take the above pics tonight, and Cleo kept begging, so I asked her if she wanted me to take her picture, and she kept posing, so I took one. I guess she thought she needed some of the attention I was getting.
My next doctor's appt. is Thurs. the 9th. I guess it's just a normal appointment - urine test, weighing in, etc. I feel funny because I can't really think of any questions to ask the obgyn except a couple about labor and delivery, but it seems too early to ask about that. I have been reading parenting and baby magazines, and I also get the daily and weekly pregnancy updates, not to mention all of my friends have had babies, so I feel like I know most of the major stuff, and now it's just a matter of experiencing it. I have started registering online with Target and Baby's R Us. That's all kinda fun, but it gets old after a while. I am noticing that with several baby things - like the daily update emails. Even I can only take so much baby talk.
Something exciting other than the fact that we're having a baby (in less than 6mths, by the way!!!) is that I got an order for debbeads (www.freewebs.com/debbeads) for a wedding! The bride wants me to make the bridesmaids' jewelry. I am so excited! What a great free advertisement, too. I will be sure and post the pics on my site when I have them finished. I haven't actually made jewelry since summertime because things have been so busy, so it will be fun to get back into it.
