We made huge strides on the nursery this week! I designed and cut out stencils for all 26 letters of the alphabet. To my disappointment, due to the noise, and the dust, and the general un-safeness of using power tools while pregnant, I was banned from the actual cutting process. I hate asking people for help. I’m actually quite terrible at it. If there were a metal for stubborn independentness, I would take gold for sure.

I really don’t mind if people touch my stomach. At least not people I know. I’m not sure how I’ll feel when a stranger touches me. But for now, its exciting because that means I actually LOOK pregnant rather than people wondering if I’ve dipped into the cookie jar a few too many times....Which I have. But that's not the point.
I’m still on the hunt for some cute and comfortable flats. My hips hurt so badly after just one hour of shopping that I finally broke down and went to the orthopedic shoe store…..And bought……….Dansko’s. It wasn’t without some protest. First I tried the clog-style. I looked in the mirror and saw a garden gnome staring back at me so I quickly put those back in the box where they belonged. I DID find some
