25 Weeks

9.13.2011

Hey, Baby.

I'm not sure how this skin keeps stretching but it certainly does. Take up as much room as you need to, my love. I'll make it work.

This week, we went to prenatal yoga for the first time. It's kind of amazing to be in a roomful of women with different sized bellies. I came in feeling like we were totally enormous and soon realized that we have a lot of growing to do.

We started class by introducing ourselves and saying how we were feeling. I was so happy to be there with you so my answer was easy. I felt great. A woman a few mats down who was 38 weeks pregnant introduced herself and said that she was feeling relieved. She lives in a neighborhood where many homes burned down during the terrible wildfires we've had in the Austin area. She started crying, saying that she was worried that she wasn't going to have anywhere to take her baby home to. Hearing that certainly made me count my blessings. I am so thankful for our house, our family, and you.

You must have really loved yoga because you have been practicing many poses ever since. You are moving more than ever. I scratched my belly while sitting on the couch this weekend and you kicked the same spot immediately. I scratched again and you kicked again! I like that game.

Before I sign off for the night, I have a small confession. I bought my first junky, impulse, pregnant lady snack today. Grocery shopping for dinner while hungry is always dangerous but is double dangerous when pregnant. While standing in line, I caught a whiff of Cool Ranch Doritos and had to have them. I reached over the divider into the next line to grab a bag and then nearly crushed a small child to get a Sprite. I've been really good about eating healthy so I promise that this won't happen often. But if you're anything like me you loved it. I must say that it hit the spot.

We're off to see your Grandpa Danny and Aunt Hanna in sunny L.A. tomorrow! I can't wait.

Love ya.
