This Is What 12 Weeks Looks Like.


Yowzers. Time to put mama on a diet!

******************************************************

Last night we broke the news to Hallie that she would no longer be the sole recipient of our attention. Parents, never make the mistake of telling your child you "have a surprise," lest you run the risk of them thinking you got them a PUPPY or a KITTEN. Ah, geez.

We bought her a book and had a Big Sister shirt for her. She burst into tears when she saw that it was not a puppy, not a kitten, but a book and clothes. Oh the disappointment. She cried until I finally just said, "Hallie, you are going to be a big sister!!!"

Confusion, a hint of a smile and then absolute JUBILATION. I have never seen this kid happier. And my stomach has never recieved so much love. My belly has been kissed, rubbed, gently hugged, patted, etc since she found out. It's all she talks about. The baby. Oh, the baby. How much she loves the baby.

It's darling. I love that girl.
