Flattering...

Wow. Well, a lot of people have been asking for a pregnant picture. Turns out, we have no idea how to take these in a flattering manner around our home. We discovered quickly that we have no blank walls, so we had a picture or a doorknob or a lightswitch in every picture (or both a lightswitch and a doorknob as in the one below). We will definitely have to work on this... but nevertheless, I sacrificed to meet all my friends desires. So, in what might be possibly the most unflattering picture I have ever posted of myself anywhere public, here is our first pregnant picture-- I am 14 full weeks along today. I have quite the pooch going on, which I didn't exactly expect for being only 3 1/2 months, but hey, babies come in all shapes and sizes, and so do their pregnant mommas.

Note to self for next time-- wear something cuter than a white t-shirt (which obviously did not help the flattering-ness of this picture).

On a completely unrelated topic, if you're interested, there are a couple new cards on Buttoned Up Cards as well as a bunch of new pictures in the Gallery to the left on this page!

I love all the new posts as of late. You really look cute in your preg picture. I know it probably does not seem that way to you, but you really look really good:)! I can't wait to meet thie little one creating that bump;). Justin, you are the greatest. Thanks for taking care of Erin. Pregnancy is not easy, and she really needs you. Erin, I am sorry things can get rough sometimes in pregnancy. And you totally feel like someone else has taken over your body. But I promise it will get better! Hang in there. Also, Just a factoid I heard once...Maybe it will help...When you have heart burn your body is creating a lot of extra acid, so 'THEY' say that if you eat something acidic, it will give your body what it needs, and then your body will know to stop making it. Does that make sence? I don't know, just go eat an orange and drink some lemonaid and see if it helps. Good luck!

What are you talking about? YOU LOOK FABULOUS!

I totally know what you mean about crossing your fingers that the previous "you" returns someday. Yay for supportive husbands. My girlfriends at work thought it was the sweetest thing ever when I told them Pedro said, "It's understandable that you're so tired - You just grew about an ounce of baby today."
