Week 24 (yes again, not sure how my weeks got off!)

This month we're celebrating week 24 all over again. I'm not sure how my weeks got off, I count up one each week, and suddenly we're off a week. I'm sure there is a perfectly good explanation but I'm too tired to figure it out. So we're celebrating week 24 all over again.

I've diagnosed myself with PLE. I've been in denial about it for the past 6 months, but I find it gets a little worse each day instead of better. You see PLE (Pregnant Lady Envy,) is my dirty little secret. I LOVED being pregnant! Don't get me wrong, having an outside baby is amazing, I wouldn't change it for the world, but I still miss being pregnant. I felt so healthy pregnant, so full of life (literally) and secretly loved the way I looked (along with maternity clothes.) I loved having my little guy with me 24/7, on my drive to work, sleeping at night, walking around all day, he was always right there. I wish that I could be pregnant forever (or at least the next few years.) The problem with that is we would end up with 18 kids, and we're not even ready for #2 yet. So I sit here suffering from PLE, admiring all those big beautiful pregnant lady bellies. Talking to every pregnant lady I see. And LOVING every minute with my little -outside- man!

(Look at my 4 top teeth, and my 2 bottoms!)

Business on top, party (legwarmers) on bottom.


  1. I'm the same way! I miss being pregnant and I can't wait to do it again! Nolen just keeps getting cuter and cuter! I love those legwarmers! I've never seen those before, what kind are they? We have several pairs of BabyLegs and I love them!

  2. Okay, I thought I was the only crazy one. I loved being pregnant too and would do it over and over again! I am already thinking I am going to rethink the whole "only need 3 kids thing" and maybe push for some more!

  3. He is so cute. He looks like a little man!
