Still here

I was hoping to wait until I had some exciting news to post, but since nothing has happened I figure I'll just put up one belly shot.
Soon, though.

I know it's not supposed to be real, but . . .

A while ago Ryan and I had a conversation about stuff that always seems to happen in movies but never in real life. Here's a sample:

People spitting out their water/beverage whenever someone says or does something surprising.

Quoting poetry, or quoting poetry to someone and having them recognize and recite the poem with you.

People doing double or triple takes.

Looking for someone else in a crowd and seeing several people who look just like the person you are looking for, but not realizing it's not the right person until you grab their shoulder and turn them around.

Hearing thunder and then getting stuck one second later in a huge downpour. (Maybe I've just never lived in a climate where this happens.)

If there's a grocery bag, there's always a baguette in it.

The cars are always clean.

Anyone have anything else to add?

big boy

If he stays put for the next three weeks (and there's no sign of him doing anything different), this baby may well be around 9 pounds by the time his due date comes around. I saw some definite chubby cheeks during the ultrasound yesterday.
I know these 4-D pictures are kind of weird, but here he is with his hands in front of his face, and you should be able to make out an eye, a nose, lips, and a cheek.
