Sympathy Retching

November 21st, 2010

This cute little Scooty-tots has a new talent!  It’s called…

P1220736

…  Sympathy retching!!

P1220750

He invented it a couple days ago.

P1220735

After one of my bouts of retching and trying not to vomit, Sir Scooters calmly stood there and then placed his hand over his mouth. 

And began to retch horribly.

It was awful. And incredibly and poignantly hilarious.

P1220751

Then tonight at dinner, he saw me put my hand on my chest.

The first sign that I will soon be retching.

P1220740

But before I even started, he beat me to it!!

With Scooter-style gusto and an amazingly red face!

P1220738

And now, I am no longer the only one retching at my house.

Thank you, little Scooters! What a sweet, humorous heart you have!!

My First Picture! (12 weeks old)

November 21st, 2010

Baby 20100001 cropped, fixed

I’m strong and I’m healthy!  And as active as can be!

I’m soaking up my mother’s energy to beat the band, so these days she loves to hit the sack at 7:30 pm.  But her nausea is almost all gone (already!) and she doesn’t have to take Zofran anymore.  So that’s great!

And.  I’m due in May of 2011!

And.  Mommy and big brother Bubbers still call me “she”.  :):)

Mommy’s favorite quotes from the Bubbers King (her sweet, personal cheerleader!):

“Mommy, why are you pregnant?”

“Mommy, when did you start pregnanting?”

“Mommy!  Look how big your belly’s getting!!!”

“Mommy, the baby is still alive!  Her heart is beating REALLY loudly!”

“Mommy, the baby is going to live for a reeeeeeally long time!  For sixty-two-sixty-six MONTHS!!  Sixty-two-sixty-six months!

“Mommy, when will the baby come out?”

“Mommy!  It’s snowing!!”

P1220729

“And it’s not even DECEMBER yet!”

P1220722

“Mommy?  What does it sound like when snow falls?”

P1220712

“Mommy?  When will we have enough snow to make a snow man?”

P1220719

“Mommy?  When will it snow AGAIN?!?”

Hey, psst… Guess what, Little Brother?  Tomorrow is HALLOWEEN!!!

Well, actually, Halloween’s not for two days.  But since it’s on a Sunday this year, Mom and Dad are letting us go trick-or-treating THE DAY BEFORE!!!!  Which is TOMORROW!!!!

Do you know what that MEANS?!?

P1220365

THAT MEANS we get to dress up and get CANDY!!!

P1220369

Really?  That sounds quite wonderful!  And did you say we get to dress up?

P1220370

Yep!  That’s right, Little Brother!  You can be whatever you want…  Well, as long as you want to be a cute little bumblebee.

P1220373

A bumblebee?  No, no, no!  I want to be…

P1220372

… thaaaaaaaaat!!!!!!!

P1220347

Hmm…  You want to be Goliath?!?  I don’t know, Little Brother…  You’re only two feet tall.  I don’t think that would work.

P1220361

I could do it, Bubbers, I swear I could!

P1220362

See?  Look!

P1220363

I’m so tall!  Don’t I look like a giant??

P1220359

Weeeell, I don’t know, Scooters…  It might be safer to stick with the cute little bumblebee.

P1220341

Okay, if you say so…  And what about you, Bubbers? What are you going to be?

P1220344

Ooohhh!!  What am I going to be?  I’m going to be something terrifying!!!

P1220375
