Is it the pregnancy glow or Benefit Dallas? Only she knows for sure.

CAKE! Can you eat it now that your succubi is ingesting every gram of sugar in your body? Jade did much the same thing--she was born large (9.9 pounds) AND needing a quick dose of sugar water. Because she was a sugar pig.

You look great! Somehow, you are the only pregnant woman I've seen who actually looks super uber thin when she's pregnant. How did you DO that?

Thought of you last night when I was watching the opening ceremonies for the Olympics. It was surreal. Cows on skates, a Ferrari spinning a donut right in the middle of the stadium, you would have laughed. HOpe you watched.
PS: I see Cowgirl in the photos below--and in a natty little pink sweater, no less!

Ha! I'll bet you looked exactly the same, M. It's one of the gifts of height. (And we deserve it given too what we have to endure: too-short pant legs and sleeves, shoes that pinch, coach airline seats that trap our knees, niche-within-a-niche shopping during pregnancy...)

9.9 lbs, eh? One more thing to admire about you (and chuckle at with the smug assumption that it won't happen to me).

I missed the opening spectacle. Did Jade enjoy it? Sounds like the kind of visual drug trip kids would love.

You look gorgeous!

It makes me happy to see you in this pictures, K!

And if my beloved Astro were around, he would share some of that cake with you!

Thank you for posting them.

I'm impressed by the cake and you're looking good too.

Good luck with the birth. As for insecurities I was sensing earlier on the page, in my experience (vast and knowledgeable) it's easy enough to adapt to being a good parent if, somehow, you get a decent amount of sleep. It all falls into place just as long as you get the sleep now and then.

Tomorrow is the "official day."

Happy Valentine's Day, my dear friend, and wishing you an easy labor and delivery.

Thank you for your phone calls.

Dang! That cake looks delicious! It's really hard to find a good coconut cake, K, but I think you hit the spot! :):)

Belated Happy Birthday to your darling G.

I've looked about 10 times, but forgot to comment in my slack-jawed awe.

You seriously look so gorgeous! SO GORGEOUS! And YOUNG. Jesus, you could be 19 in those photos, honestly. You look SO FREAKING YOUNG. And GORGEOUS! AND TODAY IS THE DUE DATE, IS IT NOT?

*happy sigh*
