Hop on Pop

Since about 15 weeks into the pregnancy, my hubby and I have enjoyed reading to the baby at bedtime. Even though we were doing this before his ears developed, it's been a nice routine and gives us a chance to try out our different silly and dramatic voices which will surely entertain him once he enters the world!
Last night, we read our current favorite book, Dr. Seuss' beloved "Hop on Pop," and the little monkey was kicking like a can-can dancer in my tummy. Maybe it's the rhyming of the words, or maybe it's the vibrations of Kiko's deep voice, but whatever it was, he was really hot on Pop's storytelling skills.
Hopefully soon, Kiko will actually be able to feel him kicking when he places his hand on my bump...ah, there are so many milestones worth waiting for in life and pregnancy...

Pink or Blue?

Woohoo...we found out last week, on July 2nd, that our little peapod is a BOY!

Of course, we'd be thrilled either way and just want it to be healthy, but it is wonderful to know that there is a little man growing inside of me now. I just hope some day I have a little girl so this little boy has someone (other than his mom) to protect.

My man has been urging me to take a photo of my belly so we can chart the progress, and I have to say in the beginning I really wasn't into it, because really, it just looked like a full stomach after a big, delicious meal.

But now that I am starting to "pop," I kind of wish I gave in to his urges because it really is amazing to see the changes my body is going through.

We'll see if he convinces me to do it...

Walk A Mile in Another Man's Shoes

I am curious what shoes YOU are wearing today? If you feel it in your SOUL, send me a pic of what your shoes look like today.

Tuesday's Shoes

Tuesday's Shoes:
Black patent Michael Kors Wedges with striped cork sole.
These are usually quite comfortable, but I walked to the mall during a quick lunch today and the black patent on the sole got so hot from the friction of my feet.
Now I am starting to bring 2 pairs of shoes to work everyday: a pair of flats and a pair of heels.
