Random Friday Thoughts

Being pregnant is the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me. Even now, after almost 6 months, I am still completely blown away by the entire experience. Every day, multiple times a day, I have to stop what I'm doing because my thoughts are completely taken over by the fact that I am going to have a baby. It fully amazes me that this little life inside of me will become a full-time member of our family in just a few short months. She is actually going to be a little tiny person - so tiny and fragile and perfect. I can't wait to see what she looks like - will she look more like me, or more like her Daddy? Our lives are going to change so much. I am going to be a mom; I am going to have a daughter. I love feeling her move inside me. It still amazes me that this little thumping I feel is a complete little person stretching her limbs. I love her so much, and I am in so much awe of the way my body just knows what to do in order for her to grow and develop.

I have dreams quite regularly now that we already have our baby. In my dreams, I am always realizing that I forgot to feed her, forgot to change her diaper, forgot that she was even there. She just sleeps and sleeps and sleeps. Thankfully, I know that in real life, she will not allow me to forget about her! I'm sure she'll make her presence known quite well so there is NO way I'll forget to feed or change her!

I finally had my first stranger ask me if I was pregnant! Last night at the grocery store, the cashier looked at me and said "You're pregnant?!" I said yes, and she said "You are SO tiny, I was really debating on whether to ask you or not." So, I may still be tiny...but I definitely look pregnant now! That totally made my night. :)

Oh, and just a thought...I would love to do a giveaway on my blog. I enter SO many blog giveaways, I think it would be a lot of fun to give back on the other end! If you know of anyone who has a great baby-related product that would be interested, let me know!

You are too cute!!!

I remember having really weird dreams while I was pregnant. The one that stands out the most was when my baby was acually a grasshopper. I carried her in my pocket and one time I forgot she was there and sat on her. I actually woke up so upset! hahaha!!

I am also VERY jealous of the baby food making class!!
