Pushing Exercises

So I am cramped. I am completely cramped. I decided that I need to take up the long honored tradition of stretching like crazy. I am pushing and pushing on Mommy trying to stretch her stomach so I can get just a few more inches. I think I am going to have to sell all my stuff because there is no more room. I will keep the computer, but past that there just isn't anymore room. Now, where can I shove the couch to get some sleep?

Ooey Gooey Yumminess

Daddy is lucky he got some! Yesterday, I had some yummy gooey rice crispy treats! Oh what Euphoria! Mommy made some and the Marshmallow and crispiness, it was almost too much to handle! I love them. Would I could I eat them in a womb? Would I could I while on a loom? I can! I will! Now what about chocolate? That would be awesome! Time for some more goodies.

Tomatoes: A Love Hate Relationship

So the longer I am in here, the longer I have to get fussy. Yesterday I decided that when Mommy eats tomatoes, I don't want anything to do with them! I used to like them, but now, I kind of want something different. What it is? I don't know, but meat might be a good thing! Anyways, I am moving and squirming and just having a good time. At night I like to drop and then in the morning climb back up. It's easier to ascend when Mommy is on her back. Well, I'm tired so I am going to sleep.

The Secret Post

So Mommy and I are in the mountains again and Daddy is at home, so I snuck away from Mommy just to write for you all. Well, all is well. I am moving more and more because it is getting more and more uncomfortable in here! Yesterday, I was asleep in the morning when all of a sudden I heard Daddy cough really loud! It startled me so I jumped. It was the first time I responded to a loud noise by Daddy. I hope I don't keep it up, I can only imagine what his sneezes are like without the protection of the womb. Well, that should be it...I need to get back to Mommy. The umbilical cord can only reach so far.

Descending And Ascending

So I am nervous! Yesterday, I dropped down a little bit. I thought it was kind of cool, but then, sheer panic came to me...I don't want to get out yet! So all day yesterday I squirmed and squirmed and fought and fought to get back up...and this morning it worked! I am SOOOOOOO tired! Mommy and Daddy kept feeling me move a WHOLE lot yesterday, but today, I am going to sleep. It takes a lot out of you when you descend and ascend over and over...I don't know if I will be able to do it again. I'm getting heavier and heavier with each day. Time to sleep!

Surprise Buttons

So I have seen some really cool things in my short little span in Mommy's tummy. I have seen all sorts of animals, different people and of course I have seen some fun things as well. I really like helium filled balloons! I like watching them fill up and swell. Well you can only imagine my joy when I found a new button I never knew exist! I pressed it and like magic Mommy's feet were instantly swollen! It was awesome! I can do all sorts of stuff with this button! I'm sooooooo excited! I guess it is hereditary as Grandpa told us about Mommy causing grandma's ankles to swell to 11 inches around! Now, where should I put my head to make both swell at the same time?

Happy Week Day! - 5

Happy Week Day! 5 weeks left! Can you believe it! Well...if you could stick a fork in me...I would be done! That's right. All my internal organs are done...I'm just putting weight on now. I am 18 inches long and weigh about 5 1/4 pounds about like a Honey dew melon. I can't believe I am so close! I'm excited! I want to be out of here so bad. Yesterday Mommy and Daddy and I were all up at the cabin with Family. I didn't say much because well, one I can't but two, I am coming into a VERY large extended family! Wow! Anyways, I just didn't move very much, I just stayed still and listened. I am so excited to be able to go to the cabin and see and hear the river for myself! Mommy stuck her feet in the river and it was very cold. I could feel it coming up her legs, it was so refreshing! Well, time to sleep, because that is about the only thing I can do right now!


A 2 Fer

So this is the 2 fer. I was up in the mountains with no internet yesterday, so today you get two entries fer the price of one! Friday was interesting. Grandma and Grandpa left to the cabin around 2 and so Mommy and I stayed home for Daddy to come home. He got home around 5:30. Well, Mommy and I just napped until he got home. We then woke up and headed to the cabin! I was so excited! Stay tuned for the next episode to find out what happens!

Baby Shower.......Evil!

SOOOOOOOOO, I just want to say one thing....Baby showers...they are very evil! Yesterday, Mommy had her baby shower, and I have determined that I really don't like them. This is because, what I have determined is that the only reason Baby Showers exist is to encourage the baby to come! They give you all sorts of things just for you, but you are stuck inside! This is so sad....I think I will need to come early because I got some incredible stuff. Now....where is the emergency eject button?


P.S. - I just got reprimanded by my Great Aunt for my verbage agreement. I guess I will just has to make sure my verbs agree.
P.S.S - I just got reprimanded was verb and subject agreement. Grrr...
P.P.T.P - I wonder what a Pee Pee Tee-Pee is for?

First Contact

So I met my grandparents last night, there was just one minor little problem: I was asleep! They got in late last night and I had been SO excited to meet them all day long that I had burned all my energy before they got here! Man...that's a bummer! I did get the hiccups so grandma felt me doing that, but I just couldn't stay awake. I need to work on that. Can you just see me making first contact with like say an alien and then: bam! I'm asleep! I sure hope I'm not narcoleptic. That would tota .... Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....

Today Is a Big Day

Today is a big day! I get to meet my grandparents for the first time! I slept a WHOLE lot yesterday just so that I could be ready for today. I want to be able to move a lot for grandma and maybe a little for grandpa...if he asks nicely! ;) Anyways, I am excited! Tomorrow is the baby shower where I get all sorts of gifts I can't play with! You know...having opposable thumbs is cooler when you can actually control them! Well, time to sleep and be all presentable for my grandparents.

Mommy's Relaxing... I'm Break Dancing

So last night Mommy and Daddy were practicing her relaxing deeper and deeper and I found a great activity to do when she is relaxed: break dancing! So there she was all relaxed. The tummy muscles were completely relaxed. I started by moving back and forth just to feel how much room I had to move. Then I did it! I did the head spin! It was awesome. Just call me Lil Bater B. I could do that all day if I wanted to, however once she stopped, things got tighter again and so I drifted back to sleep. Oh well!

Happy Week Day! - 6

6 weeks left! Man this is crazy! Did you know I am now 4 3/4 pounds about like a cantaloupe! I am growing like a weed and am about 18 inches long. The last few days Mommy has been feeling me turn over and kind of jerk every now and then. Well that is because I am having dreams more and more. I am dreaming about all sorts of things. Drooling, teething, my first Mac computer. It's gonna be great! Well more and more I am getting ready for getting out of here. In a few days I'm going to have a yard sale. I will let you all know what happens with that! Well, time to sleep!

Ode To The Sticky Bun

Sticky. Oh so sticky. Bun made of bread. Yum. Oh so Yummy! Sugar. Sweet sugar. Food that is so good.
(other babies snapping fingers as an applause).

Mommy made THE most delicious food yesterday. It was called: sticky buns! I like them a lot. Did you know when I get sugar in me I start to flip and flop around? Mmmmm...I like sticky buns.

The Circle of Life

Yesterday was a sleeping day. I am going through another growth spurt! I wanted to explain how the circle of life is for a baby. First, it begins in the womb. We: eat, sleep and grow. We are then born. We: eat, sleep and poop. We hit toddler age and we: eat, sleep and walk. A little later we: eat, sleep and talk. When we are a teenager we: eat, sleep and ... Nothing really. When we go on a mission we: eat, sleep and grow. Do you notice a pattern? I just wanted to point out that I am normal. Time to sleep!

Clothing Eulogy

Yesterday, July 14, 2010, my Mommy and I were buried clothing. We are survived by Daddy. It was a sad day. Mommy and I did laundry. She kept washing and washing more and more of my clothes. There was no couch left. It wasn't until later in the day when we realized that we were buried alive! All I can think now is: how am I going to be able to fit all of those on me at once! It's just not possible! Anyways, the majority of the clothes are 0-6 months so I only have to be buried until I out grow I am going to pack the pounds on while in here to be out of the pile in the shortest amount of time! Well better start eating!

Jello Mold

So when Mommy laughs I look like a jello mold! It wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the fact that Daddy makes Mommy laugh ALL the time! Last night Mommy and I were laying down on a couch and Daddy said something funny. Along comes the earthquake as Mommy laughs and as well, there I am just sticking out on top of Mommy with her tummy wrapped around me! I look like a jello mold! Oh well, if anything it just reminds people that I am still in here.

Having a Swim

So yesterday we went swimming. It was a lot of fun! Can you just imagine being inside water when you are already inside water? It was kind of weird. I held my breath for over an hour! We went swimming with friends and all was good. After the pool we went and played some games. Mommy went shopping with a friend and picked up more last minute items for when I come. I love my Mommy, she's so excited for me to come. She even gives me a massage each's really nice. Anyways, time to sleep!

Exhaustion Sets In

Yesterday I didn't do hardly anything at all. I slept! It was good to sleep, I needed it. Turns out, now that Mommy is out of classes, I was just exhausted, so I slept all day yesterday! There was plenty of things going on all around me...nursery, dinner, and a birthday party, but I wanted to sleep. You see, when you are about to go through another growth spurt, you need all the energy you can get! Now where is that pillow shaped like a spleen?

Happy Week Day! - 7

Happy Week Day all! Wow! We are down to 7 weeks to go. I am a little over 4 pounds and 17 inches long. My skeleton is hardening and my saggy skin is filling in. Over this past week, I went to the Dr. and they measured me as being 2cm bigger than I should be. So really, I think I am ahead of schedule! This is great! Life is great! I get to do all sorts of things in here, however, I am REALLY cramped! Oh well! Anyways, I am starting to respond more and more to Daddy's voice and Mommy's sitting up. Whenever she sits up and leans over I get squished! So I push back. to sleep I go. 'Til tomorrow.

Interference with UMBCam

So I broke out the old UMBCam to get some pictures of the outside world. Well, there was a very strange distortion! I could look out through the view finder and the top portion of the image was giving me a glare! No matter what I did I got glare. Well I spoke with Mommy and it turns out that her belly button is beginning to pop out, but not in an expected way...just the top part is sticking out. She has a ridge formed along the top. That is what is making the glare. So I couldn't take my pictures. Oh well, I will be out of here soon enough, I guess I can wait.

An Awesome Ride

Yesterday, I was cleaning up my house, getting ready for the big move in a few weeks, and I needed to wax the flooring. So I went and rented a buffer. I have to tell you...IT...WAS...SOOOOOOO much fun! There I was ready to start it up. I started it and VRRRRR it was going. But there was one minor problem, I was on top! I was spinning and spinning around and around! It was so cool! I turned it off for a second and waited then did it again and again. There was one issue with that though...I distracted Mommy. She was in class! Oops! Sorry Mommy! But boy...that was an awesome ride.

Drum on Me...When You Are Bored

This is a message from the Babies Against Stomach Drumming: please stop. Yesterday Mommy started drumming on her tummy making sounds that were weird for her but strange for me! She would hit the side that I wasn't on and it would make a deep hollow sound that kinda freaked me out. Then she would tap the other side, the one with me in it, and she would hear a non hollow kind of sound. Now, I'm ok usually with this, but yesterday it was in the middle of my manners lessons. Do you know how hard it is to hold a teacup with your pinky finger up while someone keeps tapping you on the head? Well, had to reschedule my manners session, I hope I can get that pinky thing, it took me forever just to hold the cup!

Growth Spurt - Before and After

So...I am growing like crazy! You know that growth spurt I just went through? Well I am now 2 cm larger than expected. That means, I just went to the doctor's office yesterday, and they measured Mommy's stomach. I was supposed to be 32 cm and I was in fact 34 cm. I need to stop and think about this. As a secret between me and the Internet...I'm a little older than they think I am. I'm planning on the middle of august or so...but don't tell anyone! Anyways, I thought you might like some before and after growth spurt shots! The first is about 1 week ago, the second is last night. Enjoy!

Getting Comfortable in my Skin

So...over the last couple of days, I have been moving like crazy! Part of it is because Mommy keeps using me as a book rest and the other part is because I am just not comfortable in my skin! It is still sagging off of me, gradually filling in, but boy does it itch! I have to keep moving over and over again to keep it from itching. Oh well! Also, last night, Mommy and Daddy had Family Home Evening and discussed different things. Well I overheard them and they are doing a family challenge! They want to read the Book of Mormon in 40 days. They want to do it before I come. So that is 13 pages a day! Hope they make it! If you all want to join in, you are welcome to! As for me? I still can't see the writing on the wall! My vision is like 20/4000 so I will wait until I get out of here.

Limited Space with Hiccups

Well, yesterday was a first. I got the hiccups and Mommy laughed at me! I know it wasn't because I had the hiccups, but rather it was because when I hiccuped, my leg would kick as well. Her stomach would go out about an inch or so. She said that it was so crazy, she just couldn't help but laugh. Well, it's true, it would be funny, but I am DEFINITELY feeling cramped in here! Anyways, we are up early today, we are going to go and watch a friend run a 5k. This will be interesting. Well, until tomorrow!

Happy Week Day! - 8

Happy Week Day all! 8 weeks left! Wow! Well, I weigh 4 pounds today, about like a large jicama, and I am about 16.7 inches long. It is REALLY getting cramped in here. Over the next 7 weeks, Mommy will be gaining at least a pound a week in weight, but half of that will be because of me! I'm bulking up. My coach says to start eating more and bulk up for energy and preparation to head on out! Well, you won't believe it...I have fingernails and toenails now. I even have this weird stuff on the top of my head... It's hair...or I think some people call it peach fuzz! Anyways, time for Mommy to get up and me to sleep.


Saturday, July 3, 2010


So I hear that tomorrow is the 4th of July. I've also been told that during the evenings of several days this weekend there will be loud noises and flashing lights. I guess they are called fireworks. I need to Google them some more. Anyway, I'm a little nervous about the noise. Are these people crazy?!? Have you not felt the boom? I mean think about it, I'm in a water bubble. Whenever a big sound goes off I shake all over. And the kind that make the loudest boom are Mommy's favorites. I'm not so sure how I feel about all this..... Time to strap myself down and wait for the ride. This is going to be a blast!

Lessons From a Car

So yesterday was not one of my best days. It started out with Mommy being in a car. In the morning, she was sitting in such a way, I was getting squished. So I kicked her. She didn't respond so I kicked again. Finally, she wouldn't move so I gave her the biggest kick I could. That wasn't good. I kicked so hard upward that I hit my head downward. Lesson 1: don't do that.
Well towards the end of the day, we had to take my aunt to the airport. So there I am minding my own business when I start to get really hot! The temperature was climbing and climbing. It was driving me crazy! I looked around and around trying to see what was causing this. All I could see was a bright light and kept hearing in my head: don't head towards the light! Finally it stopped. Lesson 2: keep Mommy's tummy out of the sun when in the car.
I learned so much I need to sleep.

Energy Is My Friend! and I cannot lie. No other baby can deny. The chocolate and the blueberry and the poppyseed say eat me for some energy! - (reworked lyrics to a popular song...ask daddy to sing it if you don't know the song)

Well, I did it again, I drained Mommy. I can't help it! I consume energy when I get nervous! Here I am coming up on 32 weeks and I have nothing to wear! People keep saying don't worry, no one else is wearing clothes. Well, just because they aren't does that mean I shouldn't either? Well, I will have to curb my consuming for a bit...otherwise I can't get around.
