My three year-old took this photo, so blame her for its poor angle, the one that makes me look more like a California Redwood tree trunk than a glowing pregnant lady.
The other day I was getting dressed and I caught her staring at my growing belly so I said, “Isn’t it exciting? Mommy’s tummy is getting so big!”
And she replied, “Yes! And your bum is getting so big, too!”
She sounded genuinely thrilled about that development and and I am trying my best to follow suit.
My husband and I have already begun fighting about discussing potential names for this baby and I find myself fearing for her future. We couldn’t have more opposite notions of what makes a great name and it’s so frustrating! My eldest daughter has been convinced for many months now that her name is Millie, but Steve has been quick to veto that (along with 98% of my fantastic suggestions).
If you have any perfect names that you’re willing to share, I’d love to hear them! We’re going to need all the help we can get.
