the definition of need

Remember when you were a kid and you would beseech your parents for something? "But mooooooom!!!!! I neeeeeeeeed it!!!!" and your mother would answer, "You don't NEED it. You just want it." Well, pregnancy brings with it a whole new definition of the word. I never fully understood it until I got pregnant myself, but it's true.

feels like longer

Yesterday C and I went out to dinner to celebrate our third wedding anniversary (mmmm... The Melting Pot). I think we're both feeling a little extra reflective since this will be our last anniversary as a family of two (plus Grover), and it was a really nice dinner. Lots of talking and laughing and absolutely no drinking (sigh).

As we were going to bed last night, I had an epiphany. I told C that I had finally figured out what people meant when they said "feels like longer" when you ask them how long they've been married. I always thought it was such a disparaging thing (C's response-- "Yeah, it's not sounding too good right now, so get to your point." :) ), but I get it now.

C and I have been married for 3 whole years now, and that's not really that long. I can't really remember what life was like before him. Oh sure, I clearly remember things from before we were together, but those memories are almost like stories... "in a previous life," as some would describe it. So yeah, when I say "three years" out loud, that doesn't seem like that long... feels like longer though.

speculating is fun

My anatomy ultrasound is scheduled for May 7, which means that afternoon C and I will find out if Baby B is a boy or a girl!
In anticipation, I scoured the internet looking for all those hilarious old wives' tales about gender prediction. Some of them I've never even heard before, and I think, "Who comes up with this crap?!" Anyway, here's how Baby B shakes out--

week 16 bumpdate

It's a good thing this isn't a paying gig, because I would have been fired long ago!

SUYB - April

So I only read a few books this month... I always feel inadequate next to all the other SUYB participants. Oh well... onward!
