Hey all, Daddy here! …what? You were expecting Mommy? Well, we just thought we’d switch things up a bit and give preggy Mommy a break on this one. Plus, I haven’t really been able to talk much about the pregnancy from my point of view. That is, until now! So ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome to MY 31st Week Update… Daddy Style!
Ok, let’s see… where should I start? Hmmmm… well, she’s pregnant! Yup! Oh wait, you all already knew that. Ok well ummm… her stomach’s getting bigger! And it’s so beautiful! I can’t help but to lift up her shirt and rub her bellay whenever she’s in my vicinity. And even when she’s not within my vicinity, I can’t help but to go to where she’s at, lift up her shirt, and rub her bellay some more! I tell her every day that she is so “beautifully pregnant”. And that’s because she is. I don’t know if its the fact that there is a little me growing inside of her stomach or what, but she has never been as beautiful as she is now that she’s pregnant!
On the flipside though, not only is she eye candy for me, but she also serves as a form of entertainment for me! I know I’m wrong, but I just cant help but to laugh as I watch her wobble her way throughout the house. She sort of reminds me of a penguin. And for visual purposes…
And now that she’s getting bigger (by the DAY!), she’s also starting to hold her back quite often when she walks. I find that quite funny also because she reminds me of an old woman. Cue old woman!:
Ok, that wasn’t quite an old woman, but it’s all I could find that perfectly represents exactly how Mommy looks as she walks. Now add those two pictures together and you get Mommy! Oh yeah and when she rolls over, hi-lar-i-OUS! It takes Mommy literally two and a half DAYS to roll over from her left side to her right side, and vice versa. I could leave right now, fly all the way around the world, come back, and she’d still be in mid-turn!
Mommy knows it’s all out of love though! And trust me, I make up for every single laugh I get out of it. How, you ask? You know those pregnancy cravings women always talk about, yup those are REAL! For the past umpteen weeks, I’ve made 2,710,417 trips to Walmart to buy popsicles, yogurt, oranges, and Honeycomb cereal. For some reason, Mommy has had massive cravings for these four foods, and these four foods ONLY. I don’t know why. I’ve cleared out the popsicles, yogurt, oranges, and Honeycomb sections in Walmart on many occasions due to Mommy’s cravings. Try having the cashiers look at you weird because you come in every single day to buy the SAME four things every single time. Buy in bulk, you say? Doesn’t work! Mommy just eats more! There’s no stopping her! If it’s in the fridge, she’s going to eat it! It’s inevitable! And I end up having to go back to Walmart the next day anyway as usual. So yeah, I can at least have my few laughs here and there, can’t I?
I have to admit that it doesn’t matter what it is I have to do though. I’ll leap hurdles and jump through fiery rings if I have to, because I know it’s all for my son, Boogie. He is really starting to have a ball inside Mommy’s stomach now! Every day he’s kicking and punching and jabbing and drop kicking. It’s like he’s learning Kung Fu in there! I can already tell he’s really going to be a really active one when he gets out. The day he learns how to walk, all hell is going to break loose! He’s going to be running all over the house, jumping all over couches, and diving into laundry baskets! I don’t know what Mommy and I are going to do!
Well I guess that about wraps up how our pregnancy is going so far. Not a whole lot, but not a little. Oh yeah, and the baby shower is next week, March 15th to be exact, so we’re starting to prepare for that. Mommy’s making me go! So I hope you all enjoyed my shot at a weekly update! Until next week…!
