Anything to Note =

I had a boozy long lunch yesterday – well not me of course, my friends Clare, Emily and Laura did and did me proud by drinking for me and the little schmonkie 🙂

It was also pouring out, I mean super pouring, so we got stuck, and even though the restaurant we went to was close to me, it was crazy sideways rain outside so we stayed. We all met for lunch and left 6 hours later in the prime of dinner time! I’m sure the wait staff must have loved us haha!

Anyway, the convo naturally would always come around to babies frequently. And with each bottle of wine all the fun questions came out!

As well as the baby naming game!! Which I had to shut down haha!!

I know, I know – I have to deal with that soon – trying to finish this one book first and then will move on back to the baby name book!

Names game then moved to feeling Bubbles game 🙂

I loved how everyone wants to feel the little monkey move – and despite the little one being naughty and usually not bubbling when you want him to, they actually managed to feel him! I think me sitting for 6 hours schmooshed him enough for him to have to shift about! Sorry Tess – I know you waited for ages at my NYC baby shower to feel a kick/bubble and got nothing but that doesn’t mean the little schmonkie doesn’t love you!!!

Anyway, one of the best questions asked yesterday was – do my boobs rest on my belly now?? And I had never really thought about it to be honest or noticed that as something hilarious, as it is, as they do rest there!! Haha!! When I sit down – like right now writing this blog – its like a perfect perch!

I guess I never imagined that the pregnant belly would sit out and from so high up – although that’s the stereotype for carrying a boy – but I also don’t have small boobs. I looked down as I was about to type and yup, they are sitting on their belly shelf haha!!

I could hide things under there! Or lose things!! 🙂

I’ve been watching those Border Patrol shows on TV…so this could be a good smuggling tactic haha!!

365 ONE: day 161…Bubbles

Day 161: June 17th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Cardio was = Walking

Dance of the Day was = “White Rabbit” by Jefferson Airplane

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog = “To Do Lists”

Anything to Note =

So the poor little one in my belly is developing a nickname due to my denial!!

Every time there is a kick it feels like a bubble….and there are a lot of “bubbles”….and I announce them as bubbles still, as am avoiding reality!! Now everyone is starting to use the word Bubbles to refer to the little one! And it’s my fault!!

People keep saying:

“How is Bubbles?”

or

“Can’t wait to meet Bubbles”

My dad started referring to him as MR. Bubbles!! Which made my eyes pop out of my head! I immediately was like AHHHHH!!! I told him that “Bubbles” or even something like “Bubbalaki” (to make it Greek of course) was better than Mr. Bubbles! You see, my dad has always been in charge of coming up with the nicknames for the young’uns and now I fear that I may have backed the little one into a corner with this one!

But Bubbles just sounds soooooooo effeminate!! Doesn’t it?? I don’t know! Or as I would say = gayness!

The poor little Schmonkey!

Oooooh…sounds like as I write this that the little one may have a few crazy nicknames coming his way!!

So, names used so far have been…

Bubbles

Schmonkey

Schmonkoid

Please forgive me little one!!!
