Let me make this easy on you

So Heidi and Lisa E. have requested pregnancy photos.  I hate to break it to you, but at just under three months with my first baby, there isn’t anything to see just yet.  I’ll spare you pictures of my current self, since that would put you in the awkward position of having to ask whether the bump you see is baby or just my normal “extra.”  Right now, it’s just me 🙂   When I think there’s actually something to see, though, I am willing to subject myself to such things.  This is, after all, just the beginning of what I understand will be a lifetime of embarrassment related to our children . . .

On a slightly more bubbly note, I got to hear our child’s heartbeat on Tuesday.  It’s there, it’s fast, and I was thoroughly awed 🙂

    Just to clarify, I know there’s nothing to see yet (I know how big a 3 mo-old fetus is), but I’m putting the request out there for when you have a visible bump. 🙂

  2. Heidi says:

    Yes! I second that request!

    I am also requesting pictures of other things, like if Sydney makes a crib, or something like that. Pictures of everything please, as long as those pictures don’t distract you both from taking/posting pictures of Erin!

    Also, though I had no idea how big a 3 mo-old fetus is, you told me your Penner-fetus is 2 inches long, so I assumed there was no bump at this time.

    🙂 Thanks for humoring us!!!!

    I didn’t mean to suggest it was a silly request. My mom told me that I might well expect to show at this point with child #2: something about “Your body knows how it’s done and gets going earlier in the game.” I just had funny visions of posting profiles of myself and leaving you to wonder what, exactly, you were looking at 🙂

    I’m so thrilled for you both, by the way. Yay, for Sydney and Erin Jr. 🙂
