Finally . . . preggo pics!

The first picture is what I look like right after school when I look somewhat fresh (ha!) The second picture is what I look like after I rip off my school clothes and get in my comfy clothes. And the face in the second picture shows you how I really feel. Sigh. . .
Sadly, I still have dinner to cook and Max to contend with.

Giuli's Top Ten

My sister told me about a show where ladies that didn't know that they were pregnant have their babies in the Burger King restroom, etc. I would like to go on record and say that there is NO way that any normal person would be unaware of their pregnancy. EVEN if she had no morning sickness and was fat.
I am fat, and pregnant, and here are my Top Ten Signs That You Are In the Advanced Stages of Pregnancy:

10. Your joints loosening make you waddle like an uncomfortable duck.
9. Just drinking water gives you heartburn.
8. Putting on your shoes has become an Olympic marathon (for more than one reason).
7. You are running to the bathroom every 30 minutes or so.
6. Your patience has dwindled to the size of a grain of rice, and perhaps it is the scary look on your face that warns people that you come in contact with so that they don't get hurt.
5. Your brain function dissipates in the middle of a sentence. And we're talking sentences like "My name is . . ."
4. Strangers in public start giving you looks of pity and are giving up their seats and their spots in potty lines.
3. Small children want to hug you all of the sudden, and people want to rub your belly like you are the Buddha.
2. You feel that making it to the end of the day deserves a cookie, or at least a serious foot rub.


1. You can actually feel something touching your organs from the inside, on places like your bladder and stomach. Yes, there are nerves there, I promise. If I didn't know that I was pregnant, and felt these scraping and hitting sensations from the inside of my body, I would be convinced (besides the obvious answer) that an alien was about to burst from my chest and sing "Hello My Darlin" al la Space Balls. With a cane, and top hat.

Oh How Proudly He Sang . . .

I just had to share this video with you. I am a lazy mama who rarely catches the really funny things that Max does on camera or video. I actually managed to get this one, and I think that you will laugh as hard as I did. We did not watch the Superbowl, but were checking our email on yahoo Sunday night and saw the story about Christina Aguliera messing up the national anthem. I just had to watch the infamous video of the whole thing, and Max was apparently impressed with her rendition. He then sat down at the piano and said that he was going to sing a "shong". This is the result, and I must say that he added his own pizazz to the performance! And since we're not exactly sure what the words are that he's singing, we can safely say that he didn't mess up the lyrics. Even if he did, he's just too cute! I think that even the harshest music critic can forgive such a lovable chunk of talent.
