Check it out!

Here are updated pictures of me great with child. I guess it's hard for me to smile in them because I'm concentrating really hard on getting the right angle!

It seems as if my belly just blossomed over night a few weeks ago. I work at an Elementary school, and I don't know what it was, whether I was wearing a tighter shirt than normal or what, but one day, about a month ago, all of a sudden like 5 kids throughout the day came up to me and asked me if I was pregnant.

I had to explain to them that yes, I am pregnant, and yes, I am married, and NO I'm NOT 17 years old like you thought I was.

I work in a special needs classroom and I told two of the kids in there that I was pregnant a while ago. Every day they ask, you got a baby in your tummy again?! (Yep.) And they say, not again!!

I wonder if they think I have 50 babies at home or something, since I keep showing up pregnant over and over again.

Our baby continues to have a strong heart beat at every doctor's visit. For which I'm thankful. He has started doing barrel rolls in my stomach every night. In fact, if I'm close enough to Ross in bed at night the baby keeps him up too.

I've discovered that I can no longer eat all I want any more. I have to eat less food at a time, and more often. Which is kind of a pain when I have to work, but oh well.

I'm starting to hyperventilate every time I think about the fact we're going to have a baby in 2 1/2 months! I have a ton of projects left to do, I would really like to finish my 4 independent study classes, and basically, I'm just a little nervous about the 'having the baby' part. But then I'm also extremely excited and time can't move fast enough!

Holy moley! Has it been that long since we saw each other last? I couldn't stop starring at the photos. Good thing we weren't in person. :) That might have been kinda rude.

Are you sticking around for christmas? I made you a snow globe (killed the surprise) and would like to bring it to you. I realize I'm a dork and that that sentence sounds 2nd grade. :) E-mail me and let me know!

You are beautiful Lauren. Being great with child at Christmas time always made me understand Jesus's mother Mary better. (imagine riding on a donkey for days!!)You are going to be a GREAT mother!

Congrats on being pregnant! That's excited. Last time I checked, I don't even think I knew you were married. I'm very excited for you (the married part and the baby part!)
