When I went to bed after I posted my last entry, my left big toe came to life and exploded into a furious flaming devil of pain and destruction. And I got very little sleep because it did not feel good at all. It's weird because I don't remember my the surgery on my right toe last October being so traumatic to that particular phalange. I was able to sleep last night without waking up from the devil toe's prodding, but it's still a pretty sore looking fellow. I would take a picture, but it would gross too many of you out. And I'm limping around a lot. Everyone at work sees this giant pregnant woman who is waddling way before her time when really, I'm just limping from the injury.

Speaking of "The Injury", is anyone else so super psyched to for The Office to come back on? I love that show. I'm so happy to watch Michael, knowing that he's just on a tv show, and I don't have to work for him. That part about him makes me love him all the more.

My child is huge. My ultrasound yesterday revealed that he is 2 lbs, 15 oz. I realize that weight estimations based on ultrasounds are notoriously inaccurate, but his tummy measurement is also in the 75th or 85th percentile or something like that. Neither Chris nor I can remember the exact number, but it was big, yall. A cute squishable tummy just waiting for me to blow raspberries all over it. And his head is still miraculously in the 61st percentile, and I'm hoping it stays that way. Because given the track record on giant heads in both our families, this measurement could get pretty ugly really fast. He is also head down, and I am hoping that stays the same, too.

Side note: I actually saw a pink Mary Kay Caddy today. I didn't know they seriously existed in the general public. And it was really really ugly, too. But I guess I just don't really appreciate the design of new Cadillacs.

And now for something completely different.


  1. that guy should be dead.

    sounds like pregnancy is going well. yikes about the big head though. yeah, i hope it's not too enormous that it gets stuck on its way out or something. :) i'm sorry about "the injury." i've never had an ingrown toenail, but mike has and he says they're none too pleasant. i'll just take y'alls word for it.

  2. omg, lilli loves this video and demands it to be played over and over. why? i don't know, must be in her genes because i also secretly enjoy it...

  3. also frequently requested is "foolish sucker", next time i see you i'll have lilli say it for you, it's pretty cute.

  4. that video is horrible. it makes my no zone feel really good though....

  5. When I was pregnant with Michael, we called him Cletus the fetus.

  6. I guess your sugar thing was ok since you didn't say anything about it. Sorry about your toe. So far I can get mine out myself but it hurts. If it wasn't for tea tree oil I wouldn't be able to do it. It numbs it and also somehow helps it to come out where I can get it. Yuck!!
