A few things have become very evident to me over the last few days, tough revelations I would call them:
1. I don't look good in pregnant. some people don't look good in orange or green. I don't look good in pregnant. I'm not graceful or cute, just awkward and round. I only have 16 weeks left, so I think I can deal with my predicament for now.
2. I might never be cool again. I saw a early twenties blonde girl cruising down West End yesterday, she just looked cool and then it hit me, I will never be that cool again. I will be too worried about Parker and being a mom to look or even play that part again. Maybe I can make baby drool the new cool?
3. I won't see my feet again until 2011.
I'm slowly learning to deal with each of these things. As long as I can fit back into my jeans once Parker arrives, life will be good again for me, cool or not.

August is going to be a busy week for the us, as is most of September. We have a wedding in Ohio in 2 weeks, where Parker will get to meet most of my best friends (the only aunts he will have) and then off to California for my baby shower and maybe a weekend at the beach somewhere in between? I guess I should be reveling in the fact that he travels light for now. I can see loads of baby gear traveling with us in the near future.
Speaking of baby gear, I am still in the process of registering. I just can't seem to commit to decor, much less a crib. I have managed to avoid traveling back to Babies 'R' Us and have added items one at a time online, the original list started with 19 items and its somehwere near 50 now. Thank goodness.
I did manage to find a sheet set that I think will work well. Its called Nantucket, preppy and clean but covered in alligators. Parker seems like a preppy alligator wrestler name to me, or maybe just a southern gentleman?
