Jumble Bumble

There are a lot of different things I want to share with you in this post. First, Blossom took her first spelling test last Friday @ school...she got 100% right, plus the bonus word. WOOT! Here is a scan of her test. I am so proud of her. She had a hard time with tests at school last year. I think the Hawaii pace is just right for her. She did add an extra "cat" into her sentence area, but other than that it was perfect. She was very excited to hang it on the fridge and show it off to her Daddy! Sorry if it's a little hard to see.
Next, I had to share this, I thought it was too funny. Most of you know how into animals and dinosaurs Blossom is. It's very funny. While most girls want pink and princesses to decorate their room, Blossom wants mammoths and wild animals. She was playing in the living room the other day while DaddyMac and I were taking a short nap. I came out to check on her and make her a snack and this is the scene I found on the couch. I could not stop laughing. I had to grab the camera and take a pic of it.
Yes, her prehistoric lions are actually gnawing on her blue whale. She seems to have no problem in accepting that animals kill each other for food and such things. She says she wants to be a wildlife biologist when she grows up. If this is not just a phase and it is something she continues to show interest in as she grows up, I would be delighted. I used to want to be a vet growing up but I, unlike Blossom, couldn't get past seeing hurt animals...even if it would be to help them.
Next, I made a name sign for the baby. A little early yes, but I guess this just kind of shows that I really am thinking that this will be her name. I can't wait to meet her.
We got our new dining room table and chairs delivered yesterday and yours truly spent the day putting them together. This is nothing new, I have put together most of our "assembly required" furniture. DaddyMac just doesn't have the patience and I enjoy the puzzle-like directions, most of the time. I am a little sore today, apparently I used some muscles that haven't been used in a while. DaddyMac was laughing at me last night. What with all the grunting and sighing I was doing when moving around, it had to have sounded pretty funny, though I didn't think so at the time. Here are a couple of snapshots of the new table. DaddyMac kept saying how much he loves it and that we should carry that dark wood feel through the rest of the living spaces. I told him that I was already planning on it. It's always nice when we agree.
And lastly, I know I've been putting up my belly pics every 4 weeks. I took these pics today because I loved the top I'm wearing. It's one of my favorites. So, now you know what I look like in everyday clothes. =) Isn't it funny how the words of a stranger can mean so much to us? I was in the commissary the other day, I hadn't showered yet (just one of those days,) I felt all grungy and yucky. A lady was rolling her 9 month old daughter by in her cart and said, "I just had to tell you. You are one of the best looking pregnant women I have ever seen." What a wonderful thing to hear when I was feeling so icky!! She asked how far along I was and seemed even more impressed. She said She got huge with all her girls and I told her that with Blossom I got pretty big myself, I just seemed to have lucked out this time. I honestly think it has something to do with my wide and long torso. Everything is just all squished up inside there. I also think the fact that I had been getting "in shape" before I got pregnant, worked out during my first trimester and have been at least walking these last two trimesters (and still do everyday) has helped out a lot too. I'm hoping it will help with the recovery too. I hated it last time. Anyway, I seem to have found a bunny trail. The lady was very nice and she just made my day. I have been starting to feel very uncomfortable in the last week or so and I'm beginning to realize that I'm going to have to start slowing it down a bit. I am, in fact, NOT superwoman. Imagine my surprise, heh heh! So, again, here are some clothed preggo pics of me, I am roughly 28 1/2 weeks along. How time flies...please let these last few months fly too.
Oh, please don't mind the bushy hair. I have to get some mousse. It's in that growing out afro-poof stage. Hahaha!

Honey, I LIVE in afro-poof stage!!!

You are very cute. And I think your "hugeness" last time had more to do with the pre-eclampsia than anything you did wrong. You don't want to see a dressed preggo pic of me. Maybe four weeks ago, but not now. Every single one of my shirts are too short for my belly now, so it is constantly hanging out. Shoot, I should take a pic, just so you can see how bad it is. Ugh. Is it October yet.
