Deep Thoughts

“I hope some animal never bores a hole in my head and lays its eggs in my brain, because later you might think you're having a good idea but it's just eggs hatching.”

“If you saw two guys named Hambone and Flippy, which one would you think liked dolphins most? I'd say Flippy, wouldn't you? You'd be wrong though. It's Hambone.”

“The next time I have meat and mashed potatoes, I think I'll put a very large blob of potatoes on my plate with just a little piece of meat. And if someone asks me why I didn't get more meat, I'll just say, "Oh, you mean this?" and pull out a big piece of meat from inside the blob of potatoes, where I've hidden it. Good magic trick, huh?”

“If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.”

There is nothing like Jack Handy to cheer me up!!

2 of my new favorite things:

#1 Dominos online ordering. Where the hell did I miss this? Amazing! Pick a coupon, get a blank pizza and virtually add your toppings, watch the 'task' bar as "Jimmy" picks up my order, prepares, bakes, boxes, etc. Seriously, I am impressed. Dominos isn't even my favorite really, but I like the ordering so much, I will continue my business there.

#2, and certainly the better of the two, MATERNITY freaking pants! Don't! I know, I know, I am not quite far along enough to be 'showing', but when you have the body of a 6 months pregnant woman before you even get pregnant....... My hell. I have never had so much fun shopping. EVERY single pair of pants I tried on either fit perfectly or was too BIG. I couldn't believe it. I still can't. I usually end up sweaty and crying to Benj on the phone after about 10 minutes of shopping for pants. I can't even explain how utterly comfortable these things are. I wish I'd have found maternity pants long ago. I'll never go back to normal pants again, even after pregnancy. I seriously don't even have words to express my love.

Gummy Bear

Here he is at 10.3 weeks old! He looks like a gummy bear! (look sideways) Head, body, stubby nubs! Also, notice the large black area above the baby, this is my FULL freaking bladder! Sucks! A lot of people have been asking how I am feeling. I guess pretty normal for being pregnant. Constant nausea and fatigue sums it up well. Hopefully those will start weaning down a little soon! I am liking spicy food (always have, just tasting extra good now,) so Benj calls him the "Mexican Jumping Bean" and thinks he will come out talking spanish. Which is funny to say, but when it really comes right down to it, it is really not one bit funny. Anyway, we are both excited and pray that things continue to go well!

Here it is!

Yep, I'm prego! We are having a baby in Feb 2010! Pretty sure it's a boy (chinese chart). I've had 30 ultrasounds but I don't have a scanner and can't get a pic on here. He's about the size of a pinto bean this week! Yay!
