Tiny Baby,

Exactly 28 weeks ago today, I saw you for the first time on a grainy screen in a doctor's office. I fell in love with you in that moment -- when you went from being a mystery to being real.

I loved you more at every milestone... the first time I felt you flutter in my belly, when I saw you fully formed at 19 weeks (a real tiny person!), when you got the hiccups during that big meeting, and a million more.

I love you immeasurably already, little one, and I know I can't even begin to imagine how I will feel when you are finally in my arms.

But I swear to you, if you do not make your way out of my womb post-haste, I will tear you out of my abdomen with my bare hands.



(Nature is really amazing, in that I'm pretty sure that the only thing worse than childbirth would be still being pregnant more than 2 weeks from now. We are ready when we need to be, I suppose.)

8 weeks to motherhood [May. 26th, 2010|10:55 pm]
Dear Baby Jebus,

Thank you for making this accidental pregnancy occur when I was 27, and not when I was 17.

Also, please make my baby at least ALMOST as cute as my nephew so my relatives don't pity him. If that is not possible, I will settle for him looking distinctly unlike Winston Churchill.

This may have something to do with it [Jul. 18th, 2009|09:57 pm]
In the past two years, I have acquired pairs of shoes specific to the following activities:

Soccer (indoor)
Soccer (outdoor)
Rock climbing

...and they are ALL OVER THE FLOOR.

Kickball games are mostly a forum for witticism [Jun. 23rd, 2009|09:06 pm]
Probably my favorite thing yelled in tonight's game:

Batter takes off his remaining shoe after he kicks the other in the air along with the ball.

"You're wearing two different socks!"

"That's intentional. It's so I know which feet I have!"

Dear Universe,

Can a girl get a break?

Hey, guess what, internet!

I had three athletic accomplishments this weekend:

I ran 5 kilometers.

I did 117 pushups (sets of 25-30-20-20-22-death).


(drumroll, please)

I scored my first goal ever in soccer!!

It was totally awesome. I had the ball, and I crossed it to Sue, and we pushed up the field and she passed it to me at the outside corner of the box and WHAM! I toe-kicked the crap out of it right past the goalie, where it made a most satisfying thunk into the back of the goal. And then I had to sub off the field, because I thought I might cry.

In other soccer-related news, I think someone stole my underwear.

All of these were things I never thought would happen! I sort of feel like I rule at life today. Also, am slightly weirded out by the underwear thing.

A thing that is cool:

When you realize you should reduce your weight on your Nike + settings.

A thing that is lame:

When you realize that the weight reduction means that you have burned fewer calories by running the same distance.


I have discovered relativity.

Craft time!

The first five people to respond to this post will receive, within a year, a... something... made especially for you by me. Maybe it will be food. Maybe it will be an article of clothing, or a piece of art. Maybe it'll be a weird graph I drew. Whatever it is, it will be a custom-built piece of awesome.

The catch? Why, that you have to post this offer in your own journal, of course. (Srsly, are you new?)
