Blog party: belly shot (aka "the bump")


OK, whose great idea was it that everyone joining in this blog party is supposed to show a photo of yourself being hugely pregnant?

But I'm caving in to peer pressure. I'm like that at parties.

JP took this photo of me the Saturday before Flybaby was born. I was two days past my due date, and we had nothing better to do, so we went to the beach.

The beach, people! Do you know how hard it is to heft your pregnant self across the soft sand?!

But JP made me smile anyway. So here I am, 40-some pounds heavier and feeling like a cow. Take a good look now, because I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to take this photo down!

We are always our own worst critics. You look great, particularly for being full term. I would have guessed 7-8 months, max had I not been told.

Heretofore, iirc, we have not seen any pictures of you, and although you're incognito with the shades and the bump, it's nice to have a better idea of what you look like (apart from the cute avatars you've used from time to time).

But the Glamour Shots wind in the hair, the perfect complexion...you so don't look past your due date. You were a gorgeous, expectant beach bunny. Ok, gag, sorry, beach bunny...Just a gloriously radiant expectant mama.

Gosh! You're all so complimentary and you're going to make me vain! (And maybe I should have posted a photo of myself sooner ...!) ;)
