WOW! You gals are the BEST, and made me smile and laugh - a lot!
I have some new names to consider thanks to you all. Please keep leaving comments with your suggestions - I love it!
Shelly it is a pleasure to meet you:-) Sophia is on my list, and I have a sweet little Olivia already so that just goes to show that one of us has great taste in names! Ha!
As to my weight...
I was just tickled at how many of you wouldn't touch that subject with a ten foot pole;
how many gingerly guessed a conservative number which would ensure the longevity of our friendship; but the best guess belongs to Shauna.
Shauna, I wouldn't THINK of being mad at a woman who (when yet a girl) helped me freeze our brother's swimming trunks, or who understands the value of a toilet plunger. History runs thick and deep, and while it's possible you could guess my weight from that picture... I doubt it.
I think you're on my wavelength.
That, and you're too far to reach ;-D
Shauna guessed my 35 week weight at 167 lbs.
And the correct weight (drum roll please) is 168 lbs. That is a 58 pound weight gain in eight months! Top THAT! Hahaha!!!
I am fairly confident the scale wasn't lying. It knows... and I am experienced.
It is a little awkward to drop all that weight six to twelve months after baby is born, and that has been that pattern for the last eight plus years, but if the pregnancy is "boringly normal" and baby is healthy and well I don't complain.
Especially since complaining would require desperate action.
Action such as giving up my Safeway Rocky Road ice cream.
Thank you each for your kind and dear words that blessed my emotional spirit. I am so thankful for the Lord's blessing of you in my life:-)
