Great idea Jina!

I'm not anywhere close to actually buying much for the baby or nursery yet, but maybe I'll take a belly pic later when I'm not in jammies and glasses. Biggrin

Where's your belly pic?! Wink

Here is a pic of my stash so far. This is just 1/3 of the closet. The other 2/3 has all my winter clothes,some shoes and gift wrapping stuff. I don't know what I'm going to do about closet space! I guess I'm going to have to move my stuff out soon. Hubby is going to re-do the closets to make it baby friendly. I can't wait!

Oh and I'm expecting a pair of shoes to show up today so I'll take a pic of baby's shoe collection this afternoon! Biggrin

Jina, awww I love your stash. How cute that Little Guy already has a shoe collection too...LOL!

Okay, as requested, here is the belly shot. I'm also going to post it to my April Space if you want to see the progression. I cannot freaking believe how big I have gotten in one month. Did you see the last Twilight movie, where she gets huge in like a week? That's what I feel like. But okay, without further ado....

Alissa, I love looking at your belly shots because you're only like...3 days in front of me, so I know what I'm supposed to look like at this stage. I'm already fat, so ...basically I've just poked out my belly a bit more. Although, each time I go to the doc I'm down another 8 lbs.. woot! Someone told me today that my face looks skinnier but my belly looks bigger. I just eyeballed em and said, "I'm pregnant.................moron". The moron might have been a whisper...lol

Aww, I'm sure you look gorgeous. Smile I've made up my mind that there are two times in life when every single woman on the planet looks beautiful (it's a LAW!!!)

On her wedding day and when she's pregnant. *nods solemnly* I'm feeling oh so glam and beautiful, dahling. *rubs belly* Biggrin

You know what I love? Since you're only a couple of days behind me, once your ticker turns to the same week I'm on, I get to see how big baby is. Biggrin I like my ticker, but I like yours too, so I love it when we are on the same week. Biggrin

Alissa, you look great!! LOL @ vampire baby. I totally agree, I think pregnant women are beautiful! Biggrin I love your progession pics. Oh and I don't think you look at all like you're pregnant with twilight baby. Wink

Jessica, Yes, I bet you look adorable! Please share a pic! Biggrin LOL@ the moron. Geez....why do people think it's okay to make comments about womens weight/body?!

AFM, the shoes from Nordstrom showed up! They are so freaking adorable!!! Ahhhhh!!! I LOVE shoes!!!!
I'm trying sooo hard not to buy bunch of shoes for baby boy. I'm going to have so much fun building his shoe collection. :rolleyes:

Oh my gosh Jina, how freaking cute are all of those shoes? Are the navy blue ones with the velcro straps Stride Rite? T had a pair of those (or at least that looked like them) at one point. Smile

ITA with Jina too, I do not know what gets in to some people's heads that it's acceptable to comment on a woman's body and weight. People are ridiculous.

Jina, those shoes are so adorable! Hopefully, your little man won't kick them off, lol! My brother, when he was just a baby, would never wear shoes. Like, he HATED having on shoes. Until one day, my grandmother bought him a pair of Stride Rite. Apparently he had fat feet and the other shoes were making him uncomfortable and Stride Rite's have wide shoes. He was a chunky kid..:rolleyes: NOW, however, he's like 6'1 and skinny as a stick. I always joke on him when I fold his clothes it's like folding baby clothes because they are so small.

Alissa, no, they're not stride rite. I got them at Babies R Us. But I'm might have to have to buy these. lol

Jessica, very pretty! I love your eyes!

Ugh! I didn't even think about the possiblity of MY child not liking shoes! :rolleyes: LOL I really hope he doesn't have aversion to shoes...that would really make me sad.

Eeek! That spider is HUGE!! Is that a tarantula?!

The Amazon? lol. I live in Virginia, however I live in this podunk town and they have the HUGEST and weirdest bugs here! That spider (a wolf spider) was near the back door at work - the same door I have to unlock and let people in every morning. I saw that thing and my eyes got HUGE...lol!

I was gonna upload another pic, but I was kinda drunk and had my hand up in the air like I was answering a question in class LMAO. (obviously, before getting pregnant..:))

Alissa, I love it! You look beautiful and such pretty blue eyes! :D:D I don't know why but I've always pictured you having brown eyes. lol

How do you like having bangs? I've always wanted bangs but I have a short forehead so my bangs would have to be really short in order for me to be able to see! lol

Biggrin :D Biggrin Thank you! I am feeling kind of glam with my new bangs....it's funny, the picture I took was of Naomi Campbell (this one) with bangs, and I'm sure the hair stylist was like "Oh yeah, you'll look just like her if I just give you bangs..." ROFL But however little I look like Naomi Campbell, I do feel like it's kind of a nice change. Of course, ask me in a couple of weeks when they start needing a trim....

It's funny you said that about being surprised about my having blue eyes. More than one person has said they thought I had brown eyes or that I would look pretty with brown eyes...dunno...maybe it's my overall coloring that seems like it would go with brown eyes?

Alissa - love the new haircut! Bangs go well on you and I also thought you had brown eyes? LOL

Funny about the pic of Naomi - I cut my bangs when I was like...12. I just KNEW I would look exactly like Blossom. (Does anyone even know who that is? No one seems to have ever heard of Blossom). I did NOT look like her ...I cried..and grew them back ASAP! ROFL

Awww....I know who Blossom was! Were you going for something like this? That's so awful to get a haircut that is so bad that makes you cry though. I'll never forget when I was going into the 9th grade, I was at my grandma's house (I used to spend at least a month there every summer) and I found a fairstyle a magazine that I thought was sooooo cute. It was kind of like this (third picture down of Charlize Theron) Note that I have stick straight hair. So my grandma, bless her heart, took me to my grandpa's "hair stylist" and she gives me a spiral perm and cuts my hair short. Rather than a cute curly chin length bob, I ended up with something more like this. And that's how I started high school. :eek: LMAO - I cried for DAYS over it, and I kept trying to brush it out and wash it out, but nothing doing, it was determined to stay super curly and old lady like until it completely grew out.

Yep, that's totally what I was going for! That made me LOL when I clicked the last link...hahaha, grey old lady's wig...LMAO

My hair is frizzy and wavy ...if I brush it out ..right after I get out of the shower and leave it, it'll turn into cute little curls. If I sleep on it wet, it looks like something buried it's way into my hair LOL. I have seriously thick hair too, so I straighten it... after I dry it... and it's like a two hour ordeal. Which is probably why my hair has been a hot mess since I've been pregnant. LOL!

Oh yes, very slimming. I hardly notice the bump peeking out from behind there. Wink Looking good mama!

ETA: Jina, just went and checked out your space...the last belly pic was 19 weeks. I think it's time for a new one. Blum 3

Jessica, I haven't seen a belly pic of you yet. I know with the first you don't pop as early so I'll let you off the hook if you don't feel there is anything to share yet. But this is your warning that you'll have to give us some pics eventually. Wink

That's okay Jessica. Everybody has their own comfort level with what they are okay with sharing on a public forum, and I definitely don't want you to feel pressured to post something outside of your comfort level. Smile Maybe you can post pictures of the nursery once you have it together instead. Just no more awful spiders, okay? *stern look*

It was going out on a limb for me to take a belly pic already, but I took this one last week at 7 weeks. (I hit 8 weeks this week, but didn't take a picture, mainly because I've been having a rough time with nausea and have been laying around as much as possible).

I can't believe baby #3 is hiding in there in that bloat somewhere, lol...
