Get a load of that Tot!

Do you see that picture on the right? I know it's not an ACTUAL photo, but our baby is so cute! It's also starting to look more like a baby, according to our ticker over there. Wow! According to our sources, Tot is now able to fit inside of a peanut shell; our little peanut. S/he is growing so fast!

We're starting to accumulate some things. This weekend, we found an excellent deal on a crib and dresser (matching) on crai.g's l*st. We're going to pick it up tonight. We also used crai.g's l*st to sell our treadmill for the same amount we bought the new furniture. It's like it was free!

My symptoms may be easing up a litle bit. I think I'm finally getting the diet right: lots of yogurt, grapefruit juice, beans and a protein bar fortified w/ iron. I'm still dead tired at night, but the nausea creeps up just every 60-90 minutes now. Last night, I even had energy to walk Gladys AND make dinner!!!! (then, bed before 9.)

My poor sweet E is working very hard at home. She bears the brunt of getting everything done. I know, of course, that my body is working very hard, but E must make up for the other things I cannot do. I can't be thankful enough for her. She is amazingly patient (and excited) - in spite of being very tired of lunches consisting of tomato soup and a side of refried black beans. Poor, sweet E!! Thank you, E, for being so wonderful and working so hard to keep our lives organized, fed, clean, and ready for weekend company. You are my favorite person in the world today, tomorrow, and forever. I love you.

And it's all for that gorgeous Tot!

Hey S and E, Your peanut tot is sooo cute. I love it's little legs and little arms. Did you know that one of the first systems that develops is the cranio-sacral system. If your tot ever needs some cs work just let me know. Keep up the good work! Love you ladies,

Hmmm. Yes, your future baby is cute. Very... animated!

I remember doing everything when my honey was a sleepy-arsed pregnant lady. Even though it exhausted me, it also made me feel useful and part of the process. That's important to the other mom.

You are growing a little tot in there! That takes energy! I remember Lois having to take little lie down breaks between things. Even after brushing her teeth sometimes!

I love the visual of the little tot! How cool!

Aww, adorable! I don't know if you're doing it or not, but our friend Dani started eating a bit of meat here and there when she was pregnant (was veg for about 15 years before that) and she said she felt a lot better.
