I thought I would share how much monkeying around Baby G has been into lately. If this first picture doesn’t clue you in for what’s to come, I don’t know what will. All I know, there’s definitely a trend taking place…

*Disclaimer* These pictures are not staged (see stains, bruise, and wet pee mark for proof).

I found this nifty idea over at The Natural Mommy, a new blog I just started checking out- she’s witty and sincere and natural. So go ahead and check out her blog. She also used this widget from Mr. Linky, too. Pretty darn cool. This means, if you are reading and have any photos/memories for the week that you are dying to share, here’s your chance. Link your post (individual, not homepage) in Mr. Linky…then I and anyone else can come see what memories you are sharing this week! Yes, it’s another meme…they’re addictive it seems.

Tonight, for the first time in ages I looked back to a few old photos while cleaning the computer of all our thousands of pictures. It was amazing sitting there by myself and seeing just how much Garrett had grown and how far he has come over the months. Heck, I would like to say that I think Bryan and I are doing an okay job at this parenting thing. Although, that wouldn’t be truthful given the twenty times a day that I wonder relentlessly to myself on how in the world this child is doing fine with me as his mother- who has been known to leave a heating pot of soup on the stove for over a half an hour before *oops* realizing it was there (I can’t smell ANYTHING dang-it!) or that half the time I’m really only guessing whether it’s his teeth bothering him or he’s sick and we should call the doctor.

Aside from all that, as I started looking through a few more photos that are scattered on the laptop computer, I became a bit sad that I was no longer pregnant. Yep, it hit me like a TON of bricks! I never thought I would be one of those women, but alas I am. I miss feeling my belly all round and all the other areas go pudgy. I miss feeling a tiny flutter and then those first few rolls and then the kicks. The jabs, the inability to sit comfortably, the backache and even the big fat cankles at the end. Why…you ask?

Maybe it has to do with knowing Baby G is growing and slowly spreading his tiny wings so he may enter the world and fly away from me. Maybe, it’s the delicateness of having another beating heart inside yourself that makes you feel incomplete without it, that is unless baby lays against your chest and you feel him breath as if it were those first few breathes. Perhaps, it’s the unknown and surreal beauty in wondering those nine long months and every.single.day.since. what he will be like or become. Whatever, it is- I know this; it all passes by too quickly. There are not enoughdays in a year or hours in a day to fully encompass and appreciate the life that forms within you or to fully understand and acknowledge the individual that is developing, being molded by your own actions and the environment that stands around him. And then, it takes your breath away as you realize how important you are to this one person and how important this one person is to you. And, suddenly nothing else matters but family. LOVE takes on an entirely different meaning.

That’s when I glanced back to pictures taken 2-3 weeks before ‘we’ got pregnant. We stripped the wallpaper from the upstairs guest room and painted it blue. Boat Blue to be exact. Three weeks later, I was meeting a friend for a drink and I was famished. No big deal. The next day, it happened again as I had my hair trial for the wedding. Oh, I was simply running in circles with the wedding. No sweat, I would grab a bite later. And then, I was painting baby name blocks and getting ready to head to Marion for a baby shower. When, I had a feeling. It was my boss at the time that announced it to me “Mark my words, you’re pregnant!” My boss was a guy, so I knew I needed to take the test. Three tests later, we were positive.  And from looking at the photos, I do believe I had angel’s dust sprinkled all over me.

I believe that Boat Blue room and Baby G was our destiny. Our Manifest Destiny to be exact.

I love being tagged. I was tagged by Bri over at Such is My Life to come up with the 6th photo in my 6th online album. This seems like a fun concept, even though I know whatever picture that 6th one winds up to be, it will most likely not be the ‘ONE’ I would want it to be. That’s just my luck. I mean seriously, I browsed through some other folks that were tagged and their photos are pretty darn amazing. Bri’s picture was freaking taken by her daughter and it is beautiful. So, hmmmm….can I even compete in amazing land?

Well, since its been hectic around here I have yet to do this tag which was given to me about a week ago. Yep, I am officially a slacker. It’s right before work and I figure no more procrastination, let’s pull the photo out and see what we got.

Ahhh, that would be my dear friend Sarah holding up the ‘bootylicious panties’ she made for dear old me at my Lingerie Party last June, thrown by none other than my other good friend, Kimberly. Notice how those are granny panties, eh yeah thanks, Kim. That was such a fun night, full of dollar bill proposals (I’ll save that one for another day) and lots of drinking and dancing. It became my ‘bachelorette party’ in many ways since once Garrett was conceived that was out of the question. Oh, and for the record- see my wedding date on the panties, Miss Sarah (a BRIDESMAID mind you) forgot that date and had to ask. . . yeah, maybe one day I will let you live that one down. But, guess what? That day is NOT today. I do love you. I certainly had a blast that night, thanks to you girls. Such great memories I will always cherish.

Now, I must tag some folks of my own. Let’s see….I think AnneBecky and Leanne would have fun at this one! I can’t wait to see your photo. 🙂
