Baby Egbert

Baby Egbert is kinda starting to grow on me (and in me...) it seems like every weekly update makes this kid cooler and cooler.

Last week when I painted my toenails pink (remember last week? When it was still Spring? And I had to paint my toenails because people could see them peaking out from cute sandals? Yeah, me too.) Baby Egbert didn't even HAVE toenails. Just webbed....flippers .

This week, if Baby Egbert is a girl, (and Babyzone's chinese something thinks it is) we could totally have our first mani/pedi party. Er....I could paint my toenails and she (if she's a she) could suck on hers.... Still, we're more alike than we've ever been.

Other developments that have me ooohing and ahhhing over the small creature who so suddenly took over our lives include:

  • A new less-clingy Baby Egbert. While Baby still doesn't want me to attend any major meetings, I have clearly won the "I'm going to work, and you're coming with me" fight for now. Baby has given up most vomit sessions during working hours, which is a much bigger relief than you think. 
  • Baby Egbert looks less like a monster, and more like a tiny Baby. Still has a bit of a Klingon forehead...but we're working on that.
  • Swallowing. I'm not really sure why this is a major development, but it is. So, Baby Sweetheart, once you exit the womb, you and I can paint our nails and swap pregnancy stories over a nice tall glass of smoothie. You're gonna like smoothies right?

  1. If I were you I wouldn't count on a girl just cause of the Chinese calendar thingy. Mine was supposed to be a girl according to that too and as we now know, it's not always accurate. :p Btw, I LOVE those weekly updates too but I get mine from pregnancyweekly.com. Maybe I'll check out your site and see if they're cooler. :) I hope you get feeling better soon!

  2. Yeah, I'm not counting on a girl....unless a much more reliable source (like a psychic or something...) tells me I'm havin' a girl. :)

    The best baby updates I've found are from babycenter.com, but I haven't done pregnancyweekly....I'll look at that one too! babyzone is my favorite today because of the "to do" list. :)

  7. I'm betting on a boy, but no matter what "flavor," this kid is in for a TON for kisses from that weird lady at work. (I'll try to limit myself to the tiny baby stage so he won't care and get too freaked out).
