28 1/2 Weeks... I Shall Call Him... Mini Me

Firstly, I laughed my ass off when I saw that cartoon... that was ME last week getting a pedicure! It was humiliating!! I kept thinking, what was the point? It is not like I can see my feet in the first place! Of course... why torture someone else with those scary looking feet.

The other picture is a picture of our little boy!! He is seriously like a miniature version of my husband. Having at 3d/4d ultrasound done was seriously one of the best investments we have made in this pregnancy thus far. It was just amazing to see these images. It was as if we were getting a chance to meet our son for the very first time. For the first time this entire pregnancy, I actually felt as if this is finally for real. Up until now, I was in the surreal stage, but now I truly believe this is really happening and am so very excited.

Having a baby is not without its share of issues though. Especially the issue of which side of the family is going to get the most attention. We both feel ridiculously torn in two directions. While my husband's family means well, they are sort of forgetting that there is another set of grandparents who are as equally excited but not as "forward" and are now feeling as though they are getting the brush off. I am doing EVERYthing I can to keep my parents a part of the pregnancy. I actually feel like I've been communicating WAY more with them than I have my husband's family! So, I don't know what else I can do. All I can say is that both sides BETTER learn to share or neither side will be given any contact with him. I've known ever since our wedding that this was going to be an issue if we ever had kids, so I don't know why I'm so shocked and depressed over it. All I can say is, thank GOD my husband understands. He sees the power struggle and he's not having any of it either.

Changing the subject, I just have to bring up my work. I mentioned that I got a stern "speaking to" about my internet usage and that "people notice" when I leave 10 minutes early (for god's sake I'm a salaried employee!!). Beyond that, my review actually went quite well. I've always preached that I hated reviews because I always feel they are negative in nature and consistently point out the negatives. My boss actually did a great job of telling me what was going well, that I've saved the company a lot of money for taking on the Marketing "creative" and that I get a raise. The negatives he did point out, he asked for my opinion and we worked on a solution for how we can make it better. That is EXACTLY how a review is done people!! I walked out refreshed and excited once again about my work. Even more importantly, they gave me an office! With a door! And a window!! No more cube!! No more co-workers peering over my shoulder at what I'm doing! I seriously couldn't be happier. This is the first time in my professional career that I've been given an office and although my job position and duties have not changed in the LEAST, I feel like I've moved up in the world and am getting (even if just in my imagination) some respect. I find it funny how being able to look out a window during the day can change your entire perspective!

On another change of subject- we sold our house! What a relief that is. Unfortunately, we aren't able to close until September 18th! ACK!!! Seriously. I could go into labor while signing all the paperwork. So, LITTLE MAN. My message to you is to PLEASE stay put until your due date! THANK YOU!! He just kicked me, so he must understand!
