4 Months!


I'll repeat what everyone else always says... "Boy, time sure flies by!" and "They grow so fast!"

Moana is 4 months old already. I can't even remember being pregnant. Or peeing all the time. Or having swollen feet. And gas. Or not being able to sleep. Or giving birth. I don't think it actually happened. It was all just a bad dream. Or not.

The good news is that currently the only physical evidence remaining that I was once pregnant is that my hair falls out in clumps now when I wash or comb it. I spent quite some time this morning pulling the hair out of the shower drain because no one (read: Scott) likes to take a shower in standing water due to a clogged drain. Hopefully at some point the hair-falling-out thing will stop. Does it stop? Tell me it stops. I've been bald before and it's not a good look. For me. Still pretty cute for babies.

I'm trying to take lots of pictures now because I know she'll never look like this again. And I hear that if we ever have a second one that there will be way fewer pictures...

I savor those sweet moments at when she's all done eating and she curls up and falls asleep right on my chest. That is already happening less and less. :(

And now she's growing up and all... pretty soon she'll be crawling and walking. And driving. Oh geez. Watch out. This one likes to lick her steering wheel.

Check it out. She can already stand up in her crib. I better stop teaching her how to do this.

You were the most amazing looking preggo woman I've ever seen. So fit! So motivating and great to see that pregnancy isn't a disability and that you CAN keep some fitness!

I'm just going to assume I'll look like that pregnant some day. :o)

So funny! I was just lamenting this morning that my hair is falling out in huge clumps!

Happy 4 Months, Cute Moana!

My hair did the same thing starting about 4 months. Just recently it's slowed down a lot.

Angeline would grab chunks of it and I'd have to vacuum and change sheets twice a week just to keep it below disgusting... ugh.

Hair will definitely stop falling out...

What a cutie pie you have! And as sad as it is, there are significantly less pictures when the second comes along...just not as much time. I feel bad about it sometimes, but I can't walk around with a camera in my pocket.

Happy 4 months to Moana! You were super cute pregnant. I have heard that it is common to have amnesia about pregnancy and birth. For some reason, I remember all of it is vivid detail. Must mean I am definitely not ready for a 2nd yet!

Well at 5 months my hair is still falling out but it really only started happening for me at 4 months so I think I have a delayed reaction. And giving birth is a fuzzy distant memory but I still have vivid memories of being pregnant and am in no hurry to be pregnant again. And I've still got remnants of that stupid line down the middle of my belly.

Happy 4 months to Moana!

Oh my goodness! I am trying to savor all of it! It is already going by so quickly for me, and you were just pregnant in my memory! She is adorable. I can't believe she is already standing up!

wow -- she's already that strong and that cute!? trouble with a capital T :)

I laughed about the hair thing because I actually enjoy that side effect (I have crazy thick hair) and wondered if I could trade places. Then what do you know, I lost a pound worth of hair in the shower tonight. It does stop though (unfortunately for me).
