Nor is it the fact that I don’t trust my ankles to support my weight. I can’t even say it’s because I’ve outgrown all of my maternity clothes. My LG tee shirts are peek-a-boo shirts and my regular dresses are mini-dresses that expose my greatest of secreats – my men’s XL underwear!

I’m only 3 weeks away from meeting this little girl and I’m more excited then ever to meet her! I’m dying to meet the little girl who kicks very elaborate paradiddles when she’s hungry. I’m anxious to see the little mermaid whose hair I saw floating in amniotic fluid.

Quietly,
patiently,
expectantly
ready to serve and adorn her Majesty.
