Happy to be 17 weeks


OK...the corn kernel has popped. I am officially pregnant, not just a little bit pregnant (inside joke with my middle school kids from my church home in AR). They used to say "this girl I know is a little bit pregnant", and then that is where I would stop the story and say, "There is no way to be a little bit pregnant, you either are or you're not." (ok so now it is not so inside).

Anyway, I am eating like a pregnant woman these days. I am craving corn dogs, pepperoni pizza, and carrots with ranch dressing (not together, although I did eat a corn dog with carrots and ranch dressing yesterday for lunch). I have felt some movement and it excites me each time. I thought it would be different with the second, but I think I have been just as excited when I feel the baby flip. I can't wait until Brian can feel Popcorn move.

I am feeling great and eating well (A LOT) but the finding clothes to fit me right now is a chore. I am not yet able to wear maternity clothes but can only wear two pair of pants and a few shirts of my pre-preg clothes. Mili and I went on a hunt after bible study today for some comfortable clothing. We ended up with one pair of maternity jeans (reg. $27.99, but Alice paid $6.98), an Easter dress for Mili Bear, and some sweet lacey tights to match.

This is totally unrelated to this entry but I am pregnant and so I have a licences to change the subject anytime I want (or is it, I am a woman so I can change the subject anytime I want). I was watching Dr. Phil and they had "Trouble with In-Laws" on the show. I know now that I have been taking my In-Laws for granted for many, many years. I love you guys and am so glad we have a great relationship. Thank you for making my marriage to your son better not worse. I am amazed at some of the things I heard on that show and just wanted you two to know that I love you. I am happy your son picked me out of millions and I am glad I gained you both in MY family (twice, but that is a whole other Oprah, or in this case Dr. Phil, show, Aimee & Jon). I have to say that no one on the show was dying to live close to their In-Laws, but I am (ooo ooo pick me, I have my hand raised......big smile). Love you guys. Everyone other than my in-laws can just deal with the mushiness of this part of the post, it is not for you anyway!!!

Last but not least, Happy, Happy Birthday to my Mommy!!!! I love you mom!!!!

Hugs and Kisses!!

Alice my mom's family lives in the DC area and there are some great places for Easter pictures. There is one place that is all kind of different tulips that are vibrant colors. She said they also have an Easter Egg hunt for free on the South Lawn of the White House every year. I think this year its April 9th. They give 5 tickets to each family that stands in line to get them. I'm sure its a certain time and place.

Oh how I love to be bragged about! But I think it is Me who should be doing the bragging, for I have the best two daughter-in-laws in all the land. I don't even like the name daughter-in-law when it comes to my sons wives, for they are more like my daughters than any thing else. I could never have picked two more Christian women than the two that I have. Thanks for the kind words but it is our privilege to have you as our daughter, we love you more than you will ever know. Love Dad
