So, I am walking down the hall at school this morning and my principal, tactful man that he is, says I look like a pumpkin. (And, this was definitely NOT the first comment he has made about my expanding belly!) Granted, I am wearing an orange shirt today but does that seriously seem like a good thing to say to someone? It really didn't bother me but it just really got me thinking about all the inappropriate things people say to pregnant women. That has probably been the most surprising thing about pregnancy for me. In my case, it has been mostly men making these, "Whoa, you're getting huge!" (or some equivalent) comments. But, sometimes women make them, also. I have been guilty of it myself. I can't wait until I am really huge. Oh, the comments I will get then!

Who is that guy?

Dave and I went to see Fireproof yesterday afternoon. With about two minutes left in the movie Dave leaned over to me and said, "That guy looks like someone famous but I can't think of who it is." I couldn't help but laugh a little as I told him that guy who looked kind of famous was, in fact, Kirk Cameron. After the movie he told me that he had been trying to figure out who he looked like from the very beginning. We both got quite a laugh about it.

I am sitting here at my "desk" at school and thinking to myself, "You have got to get this mess organized!" I almost wish I had my camera here so I could take a picture and show you how bad it is! I have stacks falling over onto stacks. I have files sitting in tubs. My tape dispenser has fallen over on its side and I haven't bothered to pick it up. Half finished work is laying on the edge of the table....Don't even get me started on the 6 or 7 boxes, still full of stuff, under my table. We are still in a transition, waiting for our new school building to be built so we can move in, so I don't want to unpack everything just to have to repack it in a couple of months! Plus, there is no where to put it all! Needless to say, it is a disaster area! I have been telling myself it is the babies. (They are pretty much my excuse for everything these days!) I just don't have the energy to straighten it up, or they have thrown me out of whack so bad that things are just not getting organized. That really isn't fair to the babies, though, because I definitely had this problem LONG before I was pregnant! When I get too much stuff, or make too much stuff, or try and do too much at one time it just spirals into this tornado that is before me right now. I get overwhelmed and don't even know where to start. I just do a little here and a little there, but not enough anywhere to really make a difference. It doesn't help that I have so much junk up here that I don't need. And, it is just taking up space that I do need! But, like I do at my house, I tell myself, "I might need that some day." The funny thing is that when that day comes I don't have a clue where to find that much needed item so I might as well have thrown it away or given it to someone who would actually use it. I guess I could be organizing right now instead of sitting here typing this!!!

20 Weeks

Here is my first belly pic. Dave and I were headed to a football game on Saturday and had the camera with us. We have been meaning to take some pictures for a while but just never got around to it. Hopefully this won't be the last one we take.

Do Dreams Really Come True?

Someone told me that if you are pregnant and you have a dream about the sex of your baby, that is what you will have. Well, needless to say, I was a little skeptical. I did have a dream, however, and that dream was an accurate prediction of what our sweet babies will be!! That's right, we found out the sex of our babies today and my dream, when I was about 8 weeks pregnant, was right. So here is the first outfit I have bought our babies.

Yep, two girls! We had our 20 week sono today and our little girls were kicking like crazy! The sonographer couldn't believe that I can't feel them moving. There was an RN training to do sonograms so we got the normal stuff and then got to watch for about 10 extra minutes as she looked around and practiced. It was really neat to get that extra time to watch our girls kicking each other in the face! It was so reassuring to see them "bonding" at such a young age. I guess we have to work on those girl names now. We have had a long list for about a month, now we just have to narrow it down. Don't expect a big name announcement, though. I think we have decided to keep it quiet until they are born.
