How to Smuggle a Watermelon in Your Shirt

So the belly has finally grown to a point where I'm starting to actually look pregnant (instead of just dumpy).

But what a difference the right, strategically cut, clothing makes! In this outfit here (which I wore to work today) I look exactly the same as when I wasn't pregnant!

But in this outfit, clearly, the jig is up.

Time to diligently rub that stretch cream on daily. Does anyone recommend any good creams? I've been using Mustela cuz I love the smell and someone highly recommended it to me, but it's kind of pricey. I tried Palmer's Cocoa Butter, but it smells too awful.

In other news, I've met the first of several babies recently born to my childhood friends. Here's me and little Isaac, just 2 weeks old, developmentally speaking (he's been out of the womb for at least 7 weeks).

My goal is to knit a special little item for each of my friend's babies. Here's Isaac's little cardigan cuz his mom said she likes the color green.

I don't think there's anything closer to heaven on earth than holding a newborn baby. Even when he was grunting strenuously as he pooped in my arms. So sweet. So stinky, yet so sweet.

Thanks Insaknitty, yeah, I love knitting. I'm horrible at figuring out how to, but I love it! I wish I could find a store that also has helpful people so I can bring in my half-finished projects and ask, "how the heck do I do ___?" and have them show me.

You're adorable!! I love the watermelon!

And I agree - That is a great sweater!

And I used Burt's Bees Belly Butter. It smells like cocoa butter, though, so I'm not sure you would like it...

Thanks Portia! I love Burt's Bees chapstick so I may like their Belly Butter...I'll go to the store and sniff some.
