It’s time to play a little catch-up with the belly pictures. And I really need to get my behind in gear and stop slacking off when it comes to blogging!
Mister bought me a point ‘n shoot camera for Mother’s Day this year, so I’m hoping that the quick/easy snapshots will prompt me to post more often without feeling the need to edit/tweak the images like I do when I shoot with my SLR. I’ll stick with the SLR for portrait (etc) work, and use the PnS for day-to-day snapshots… especially after Noodle arrives.
Anyhoo… I didn’t post a belly photo last month, so here are the pictures from April 1st and May 1st.
And comparatively, here are the images from month 6 and 7 when Tadpole was still Slapshot.
The more this pregnancy progresses, the less motivation I seem to have for photography and/or blogging. So, consider this notice served… expect to see less of me over the next few months. I will still post at least a few times a week, but it’s likely not going to be every weekday like it is now.
And because posts are better with pictures (obviously!), here’s Noodle – the reason for all this trouble :) …
On a few occasions now, I’ve had people comment on my “little” belly… to which I reply “WHAT!?” Seriously – I feel HUGE with Noodle. Way bigger than I felt with Slapshot (Tadpole)… and I thought I was big then. Figure the best way to compare is with photos. The 1st is me & Slapshot on the 1st of September (Month 5). The 2nd is me & Noodle on the 1st of March (Month 5).
(Slapshot’s due date was January 2nd. Noodle’s due date is July 1st.)
When I was pregnant with “Slapshot”, Mister took a photo of me on the 1st of every month, so we could track my belly’s progress… and we’re doing the same this time with our little “Noodle”.
Since today is the 1st of the month, I thought it was as good a time as any to formally introduce our future youngest child. Here’s the snapshot Mister took before dinner tonight.
And we had our ultrasound last Friday morning, so here are a few of the pictures we got from the tech. (And FYI – we’ve decided that we DO NOT want to know Noodle’s gender, so we asked the tech not to tell us, even if he could discern whether Tadpole was going to have a little brother or a little sister).
