Preg Pics for Barbara

Barbara at Women on the Verge of Thinking has been hounding me to post pregnancy pictures. Given what a sad week she's had (plus the fact that I'm due to deliver any day now), I decided it was finally time to do so. The teensy amount of satisfaction these pictures give her is more important than my vanity.

Of course, taking the pictures was the first step. We did that last night while celebrating G's birthday. I'm inordinately proud of the cake I made from scratch: a pineapple-coconut number with four layers separated by Italian meringue frosting and crushed macadamia nuts, spackled with coconut. It doesn't look impressive in the picture, but let me tell you, it was, especially with Haagen Dazs pineapple and coconut ice cream.

(A word to those who've grown accustomed to seeing me with blond hair: I darkened it with a semipermanent shine-sealant wood stain type of product last summer and have kept it dark since. It's been a fun change. I can wear red lipstick now without looking all tarty.)
