For starters, thank God blogger is up and running again. I was getting bored.
For second.. I have finally started buying a few 'maternity' items. Yup, "maternity". I say "maternity" because they're not supposed to be maternity clothes, but I've had to upgrade some of my clothes to bigger sizes.
Like the black pants I wear to work. After breaking off buttons, sewing on buttons, and struggling to button the buttons after bathroom breaks, I finally bought a cheap pair of sweat pants that can pass as dress pants. The trick? The drawstring is on the inside so you can't see it. They're still at size xs, but I can finally breathe in my work pants, and that means there's plenty of sizes for me to go to as I get bigger, and they're cheap enough for it not to matter.
I bought a couple of longer, room-ier shirts for the warmer days too. Not that it's ever going to get warmer. It's just going to rain forever. And ever.
And call me crazy but I bought two pairs of girl's winter booties, even though I don't know what I'm having yet. They were only $3 each, and at the price it's no big loss to me if I don't have a girl. I know a few people having baby girls soon anyway.
Baby is still kicking around, but not as much as a few days ago. Maybe because I've been too busy to really sit down and feel it. Still, it's pretty amazing when it does happen.
Now that the wedding is over I'm having to find new things to look forward to. Sounds like I'll be busy enough to keep me occupied.
