As Requested

I thought I'd post a little bit about this pregnancy, and show you what I look like at 7 months. A couple of weeks ago at enrichment, someone told me that I still don't look pregnant. I get this a lot- especially when I have on a coat or jacket. I'm never sure how to take these comments because...really?? Do I really look like this when I'm not pregnant???

In these pictures I'm wearing a tighter shirt so it should be obvious!










And yes, this baby is a BOY! We are so excited! I can never remember what I've said on Facebook and what I've said on the blog but it isn't a secret. I have been going through all of JJ's tiny little baby clothes and can't wait to use them again. There is nothing better than a new little baby. I think it is my favorite phase and it goes away so quickly. I know that this baby will eventually be getting into everything, throwing tantrums, and running all over the place- they all do! This just makes me enjoy the tiny baby days even more- even with all the sleepless nights. It is just a sweet, special time.

We have a name picked out, but James likes to keep it a secret until the baby is born.

We had a wonderful Easter Sunday. We stayed home all day and watched conference, had a lot of good food, let the kids eat WAY too much Easter candy, did puzzles, and just enjoyed being together. I don't remember the last time the four of us were all home for the whole day together. I'm feeling a lot better about things. Sometimes you just need a day off! 10 more days to go!!!

I hope that everything is going well for all of my friends and family in the blogosphere!

I can't wait until you can see me pregnant (someday) because I look like you at about 4 months. It is brutal! The sleepless nights were the hardest thing for me. I admire your ability to see past that and just enjoy the early days! If I could birth all my kids as one-year-olds, I would be completely happy ha ha.

Nope you definitely definitely DON'T look like that when you're not pregnant. :) You are beautiful though. And I think people are right, if you aren't standing sideways accenting the belly you can't tell so much - you aren't pregnant in your face or anywhere else, you just have a beautiful baby belly. That's all. :)

I'm just so excited for you. New Baby Boy will be amazing. I can't wait to hear what the name is.

For cuteness! Marianne you make pregnancy look good (that's a compliment)! Thanks for posting pictures!

Usually when people are 7 months pregnant their hips have widened out and they are starting to retain fluid and they look (and feel) a little puffy all over. You, on the other hand, look all fresh and cute and gorgeous like most of us never do, even when we're not pregnant!

That's what everyone means, they just don't articulate it all the way out. :)

Guess what? I'm moving to Utah next month. I am way excited to live closer to you!

You have to be one of the CUTEST prego people I have ever seen! I wish I looked half that good at 7 months prego... I am glad you are doing well, and I am excited to see pictures of your new baby--wait, I am getting ahead of myself. Good luck on the next couple of months :)

Marianne, it's definitely a compliment. You look AMAZING! Can't wait to see this little man! I bet he is going to be darling! Hang in there with everything you have going on. So happy for your family to grow to three.

You look fantastic! I only wish people would ask me such questions. I usually get, "You're only that far along." My belly really grows. YAY for another little boy! How exciting! Keep your chin up with all that is on your plate right now. You sound like one busy mama! I hope things slow down for you soon!
