Monkeybutt Update

Everyone: Would you all please tell my beautiful daughter-in-law how gorgeous she looks? If she could bottle that exquisite glow and sell it, they'd be gazillionaires.







The proud parents tell me Monkeybutt is kicking up a storm now. Not quite to the point where the gorgeous mom waddles around all day feeling like a clothes dryer full of wet sneakers (hoo boy, do I remember that stage!), but enough that the bedazzled dad can definitely detect the action.

And me? I walk around all day having imaginary conversations with the little guy. "What would you rather be, a wizard or a pirate?" I ask him. And he inevitably says a pirate. Then I say, "Well ok, but what would you rather be, a pirate or an astronaut?" And this time he's not sure. He hems and haws until I suggest maybe he can be all three at the same time. He eyes me skeptically, but soon we're busy designing the proper multitasking headgear for a wizard-pirate-astronaut to wear to work. And after that we might run down a hill with our arms out straight, being really fast loud airplanes, until we fall down in the grass and eat cupcakes.

So how many minutes until February? Are we there yet??

And she's still got 4 months to go? Lia, say goodbye to your toes - I have a feeling you won't be seeing them for quite a long time...

Heavens, there is nothing better than the fresh faced glow of a happy pregnant woman.

It is a sign of my age that she looks too young to be preggers---pretty soon I'll be complaining about how doctors are all a bunch of snot nosed brats and where are the adults, I want a grown-up doctor!

Radiant!
I love all the shapes of a woman carrying a child.

He may want to be a fish, you never know.

Am I the only one who thinks that she is really sexy in these photos? The one with her wearing the red shirt was my favorite, by the way. Your daughter-in-law is definitely "the new hotness".
