The Bump

Fall pregnancy photo shoot from @natashaskitchen

Here’s an update on the baby bump. I am now almost 22 weeks and baby is the size of a banana (1 lb!). I’m past the half way point and my bump feels more like a barrel, especially after last nights enchilada :-O. Yesterday we found out the gender of our little one. Read on if you’re curious :)… (aren’t I cruel to make you wait? Ah ha ha ha ha – that’s my best cruel cackle).

My hubs snapped these pictures of me in the backyard last week . I’m starting to gain weight fast. Maybe it’s all the ice cream, pudding, chocolate truffles, and candy? Nah!! What a ridiculous thought – the baby needs those! I take comfort in that I buy 1/2 fat ice cream so I can eat twice as much without feeling guilty. Smart, eh?

Now on to the big gender reveal. It’s a… well, I’ll make you guess. A ha hah ha ha (oh goodness, not more cackles?!, sorry).

Here’s a sweet little profile.

And sweet little feet. I just want to kiss those toes (minus the amniotic fluid of course).

And since I didn’t give you much to go off of. I’m just-a-gonna tell you. Fine. Fine. It’s a GIRL! So many of you guessed it would be a girl!

Now we need to come up with a classic name for our little lady. Decisions, decisions. I mentioned a name to my son and he replied with “No!” I asked him what he wanted to call the baby and he said, “Mario.” I then explained that we can’t call her Mario since she’s a girl and he says, “ok, Princess Mario.” Oh brother.

I hope you are having an awesome week! P.S. Thank you for showering me with sweet compliments and love on Instagram and Facebook where I’ve been sharing more of my prego pictures. You all are such a blessing to me :).
