Someone asked where I got the graphics; the "it's a boy" can be found at ph.oto.bu.cket. I am sure you can find a pink one, The lil person avatar came from y.ahoo.
Here is a pic at 22 weeks - i cropped my head out because my hair looked awful - I meant to take a picture before I laid down ... fell asleep and woke up and it was too late - but here's the belly. I am still so proud that all of the books state that a weight again up to 15 lbs is acceptable. I am still holding at those 6 lbs - but those 6 lbs are really just 6 lbs of the 15 lbs i originally lost from the first trimester - so technically I am still down 9 lbs from my pre-preg weight. And we know from last week Mini is 16 ounces - there is one of those 6 lbs.... Yes I am justifying all of this ;) Mini is the size of a spaghetti squash!! (8-11 inch) so cool. 3 books and a website suggest that rings come off n ow - anyone else do this?
My SMil- emailed me back from my email on Friday - her and E's father want to buy mini the car seat/stroller. It is overwhelming being that she picked the absolutely most expensive things on my registry. (I did not do this on purpose - the items she picked have been on my list since the very beginning) This weekend, not knowing what they had in mind, I was trying to find a more affordable set that I liked but E says not to worry about it, let them buy that one. So there you have it. I emailed her back last night and told her that we were thankful of their generosity and that we appreciate their gifts. So now we just see I guess.
I thought I was getting sick - in fact I am at home today sure I had a sore throat, apparently - it was just allergies and thirst ... *how old am I that I can't tell the difference??
Well since I am home and E is home, i called a daycare center. I managed to dial the number and ask for a tour of their facility. We will be on our way as soon as I get E moving .... I am so nervous, I held out on this off as long as possible - but If I planning on going back to my current job (which I have not fully decide) We need to go get on a waiting list .... They have a waiting list until Jan 09! as of now. So .. Happy 22 weeks, I will be celebrating part of that in a daycare .....Oh do I have mixed feelings about this.?!
If you believe in a higher power - could you please say a prayer for my mother - she has had a rough past 2 yrs and we all thought things were getting better - but this weekend things didn't go so well and we are just a little concerned. To put it generally, She has anxiety attacks and gets overwhelmed.
