Erin's Top 10...

...things NOT to say to a pregnant woman (and how I feel about it)

10. "When is your due date (for the 15th time)?" - I know. It looks like I am going to have the baby tomorrow but it is July 1st.
9. "Do you want a boy or a girl?" - Well, let's see...Does it really matter??? I want a boy or a girl.
8. "Wow, you are getting bigger!" - Really? I didn't notice.
7. "You don't have that much longer to go." - Yes I do.
6. From a worker in a drive-thru window, "How far along are you? Are you nervous?"- What?? Don't talk to me. Just give me my burger!
5. "It looks like you are going to have a girl because girls make you get bigger everywhere, like the hips, legs, and face; not just the stomach." - Wow, did you really just say that?
4. "Are you pregnant or do you need to get your a$$ to the gym?" - Yes, someone actually asked me that in those exact words.
3. "How do you feel?" - How do I look?
2. "Are you going to have another one?" - Can I have this one first?
1. "Can I touch your stomach?" - Can I punch you in the face?

In all seriousness, I am grateful to have so many caring people in my life and caring strangers that I meet (on a daily basis). But I will never understand the attraction people have to pregnant women and the constant need to talk to them or touch their stomachs. I really don't mind the questions/comments from my friends or family, but the strangers....

I have never been one that likes the attention that comes with pregnancy and I can't wait until it's over for that reason. I know, I am a horrible pregnant person.

Well, I have to say that this baby boy is huge apparently. I am currently 26 weeks but measuring 31 weeks. I will have an ultra sound on the 12th to determine just how big he is.

Meanwhile, my other baby is going to turn 4 next week! I am not ready for that because then he will turn 5 and then 6. He is doing wonderful however. I will post more later on his latest and greatest.

Our Family Portrait

This is our little family according to my sweet boy. The order is Daddy, Austin, Mommy and his baby brother. He even wrote his name at the top. He writes his "A" as an "H". If he messes up or doesn't like a letter then he just continues right beside it. We were so excited when we first noticed that he could right his name and spell it himself. He recently created a birthday card for his Grandpa and he wrote Happy Birthday, I love you. I just told him how to spell it.
