Confessions: Part 6

*Marching band's make me emotional. I honestly have no idea why.

*I may or may not have an old "comfort" item from may childhood that I may or may not have given to Olivia when I found a replacement.

*The warm weather is making me nostalgic for my cute/comfy summer maternity clothes, therein making me miss my round belly, but am in no way baby hungry again.

*Sometimes I think I don't try hard enough.

*My husband let me sleep for nearly 3 hours yesterday and then sent me to get a manicure and pedicure while he stayed home and played with Livi. He knew how badly I needed it without my saying a word. It made me kiss him a lot.

*When babies babble, it makes me cry. Not even just my baby (well, especially my baby), but other babies, too.

*When something good happens I still often reach for my phone to call my dad, even now 6 years since he died.

*I may have an unhealthy obsession with cake.

*I miss/need my mom at some point every single day.

*B voluntarily watched Ghost last night. I'm pretty sure he loved it.

*Brittney needs to teach me about football. Nichelle needs to teach me how to communicate specifically. Tasha needs to teach me to make ice cream. I'm certain these things will make me a more well-rounded person.

*Lately I feel like I have to ask permission for a lot of things, even though I don't actually have to. I think that means I'm having personal space issues in our current situation. I think I need to get over it.

*I like rules and instructions, I follow them devotedly. I don't sway from recipes. I don't toe the line. I like boundaries. I DO NOT, however, like being told what to do by those who have not earned the right to have a say in my life. Perhaps this is related to said personal space issues.

*I love Glee. I would have auditioned this last week like the rest of the nation, but I have unfortunately crossed the threshold of being "too old."

*That being said, I did not love Glee this week.

*I know a lot of secrets at the moment. Like, a lot a lot. Kinda makes me feel empowered. Is that bad?

Where was this book when I was pregnant?

I mean really. I loved reading about pregnancy when I was carrying my little one. I was completely mesmerized by what was happening within the confines of my own body. I read everything and anything I could get my hands on. I didn't like much of the material, particularly What To Expect When You're Expecting (actually, I hated that one) and a few other standards, and I was constantly searching for the ultimate pregnancy book. Yesterday while perusing the library I stumbled upon this in the new release section. I love the "You" books. Love them, own them all. So you can imagine how ecstatic I was to find this. So ecstatic, in fact, that I brought it home with me.

Pregnant again? Nope. Still reading it anyway? Yep.

It has not disappointed me.

7 Months

Don't you just LOVE her?
I could just eat her up.
