I'm so excited to become a mom! It will be so great to have a kid around:)

The Office

Jim Halpert: Question. What kind of bear is best?

Dwight Schrute: That's a ridiculous question.

Jim Halpert: False. Black bear.

Dwight Schrute: That's debatable. There are basically two schools of thought--

Jim Halpert: Fact. Bears eat beets. Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.

Dwight Schrute: Bears do not... What is going on?! What are you doing?!

Chloë @ 23 weeks

Little miss Chloë has been such a joy for me to carry. I really enjoy her little presence with me all of the time. I always worry about her comfort and happiness in there. I hope she is cozy and enjoying her stay. I was running errands the other day and everywhere I went someone asked me what I was having, or when I was due. It's crazy to me how quickly I went from no one knowing to strangers feeling free to comment... And even touch me.. Now don't get me wrong I am not one of those people who hate people touching my belly, but I was in the 99 cent only store getting soil for our plants and a man aproached me and said "Oh your pregnant! Do you know what you're having" I replied a girl and he goes "Can I" and before I could respond both of his hands were on my tummy. He then says " Tell your man to get a gun girl you can never be too cautious" and walked off. Like I said I don't normally mind, but seeing as though he took me off guard AND I was at the dollar store (in concord)... Being pregnant is such an adventure!

Baby quilting!

I am taking a class in April that is from a lady who is supposed to be a quilting guru. I am getting so excited to take it, because Iwant to make my little girl a soft comfortable quilt. I have never made a quilt befor so I really don't know what I'm doing. I went to Joanne's and got some random prints that I thought were cute. They don't all go together, but I can use some for future projects. Here is my material I picked.

Getting Bigger!!!!

I have just gotten to the point where people know that I'm pregnant, not just gaining weight.. Every time I go into work ( I work with some of the sweetest Chinese ladies!) I get at least a comment or two. The other day my co-worker Lina (her American name) commented that now "I can even tell that you're pregnant from behind" hmm.. I don't like the sound of that. That doesn't sound like a good thing. They ALWAYS mean well, but I never know what they are going to say to me. Todays comment was from my mom.. "You look like you are carrying a long baby" My translation: you are carrying your baby in an odd looking way.
The other day I went into the beauty supply store and the lady that works there always recognizes me and says "Girl you gotta baby round. I seen you from over there and I thought.. is that.. and sure enough you pregnant girl!" I must say I am relieved to be in the "you look pregnant" zone and out of the "You ate one too many cookies" zone. Here is a new picture of  my "long baby bump"..
