2nd update for the day!

So, London has figured out how to open her dad's iphone and uses it quite well. So well that she knows how to unlock it and slide the pages to where the games are. This is her one morning hiding in our bedroom upside down on our pillows with....that's right, the iphone. I'm still not quite sure how she got in that position. Another weird position for her last week was while watching "Thumbelina." London told Tyler what to do with his legs and then climbed up. This is the picture I walked in on. She was more than comfortable watching the show between his feet. Once she realized that I had the camera, she was all poses. The last weird thing London is infatuated with is her infant hats. I try to tell her that they are too small but, it doesn't matter. Even if they look like do-rags she looks cute with her eyes squished down. Well, lately I've really started to notice that I'm slowing down. By seven at night I could definitely go to bed and wake up at ten the next day. Unfortunately, London wakes up at the crack of dawn. Little things that weren't big deals now are and it drives me crazy! For instance, when I go to the gym I can perform all of my lifting sets with just a little more effort. But, bending down to grab my water takes my breath out of me. If I mow the lawn after the gym, I should expect to be out of commission for the rest of the day. WHY???!!!!!! I CAN'T STAND IT!!!!! There's a reason I haven't really written about my pregnancy. #1 I know I will sound like a complainer. #2 I don't think people really care about a pregnant woman's issues. #3 I feel fat and ugly and have purposefully avoided taking pictures of the budda. Well, Ty helped me realize that with London we documented with pictures pretty consistently and I have not with this child. So here it is, a 24 week picture of chubs. Enjoy....while I cry.

Gag me! You look so great. And that London just kills me. I think we need to meet at the city of her namesake sometime...

I have NO doubt that your tummy will be post-baby bod in no time, just like with London. Don't be so hard on yourself--this is the only time you can have more belly stuff going on and society doesn't care. Live it up on my behalf, because what I've got goin' on is not entirely acceptable.

I laughed out loud when I saw London's hats. She is adorable. And you are a very good mama!
