Sundays are the laziest of all days around here. I usually make something carbarific for breakfast (this morning it was garlic cheddar biscuits) and we read the paper, and laze around. Our typical Sunday activities include recreational shopping, groceries, and slack.

Raj has to write a paper today, but other than that, we have no agenda. We are showered up, and I am dressed. I look so cute. I am wearing this adorable blue and white striped maternity shirt my sister bought me, and some dark blue denim capris. I might have to have Raj take a picture, documenting that I actually looked cute for a day.

Maybe we will go to the zoo, or the botanical gardens, or just around Madison a bit. Even though it is raining like crazy, I like to go around and document how pretty our fair city is. It's easy to forget how much nice there is when the rest of the world spends so much time being ugly. There are also a large variety of baby items we could be shopping, comparing and pricing. And I need to buy some things to make a veggie pizza for a pot luck we are having at work.

YESTERDAY was our company picnic. Sucky that it rained, but it was great to have everyone get together, and meet everyone's families. Since we have 2 offices, it was a real treat to see everyone from that office.

16 week appointment, 1 week late

We got to see our doctor today. Much like last time, the baby was trying very hard to hide from her, but she would not let the little stinker do this. The baby was clear down by my pelvic area (with almost my whole tummy to choose from!) The heart rate was in the 160s. It was a very cool experience, and I am so glad we finally got to hear it.

I love that kid so much already.

looking at it is a bit of an obsession, frankly.

both stupid cats were yowling like crazy tonight. it's a pretty nice night, so i decided to turn off the central air and open the patio to let the cats go outside and play.

they have been so calm since, but I have gotten bit by about 1 million mosquitoes in the past hour.

i freaking hate mosquitoes. my cats are so not worth it.

unrelated, but important. the bebbe in my belly is 17 weeks along today. 23 weeks to go. at some point in the future, i hope to look pregnant instead of just fat. it's been a joy, so far little one. can't wait to meet you.

This blog is virtually unread

Even by me. I like this little blog, too.

Today, I am so bored, it is beyond reason. I have run out of fun stuff to look at on the internet, my husband is at work, and I just don't even know what to do with myself.

I sent a text to a friend who usually has Fridays off. Maybe she will want to swim.

So here I am, 4 months pregnant now.

I've had it very easy so far. No real morning sickness (no barfs, but nausea galore)
I had the tireds like nobody's business, though.

Starting to show a bit. Hard to tell, cause of my fat belly :)

Mostly, I like being pregnant, but DAMN if I am not the MESSIEST.WOMAN.EVER.

Since we like to recreationally shop, we now have a fine excuse. We need so much for the baby.

Haven't bought anything yet.

Will post more soon.

Emily the Good.

ALSO, WTF WPR, why are you suddenly all static? LAME
