What Have I Gotten Myself Into?!

This, is a picture of an infant husband.

Be forewarned.

He's enormous.

As in, elephant enormous.

As in, "where the heck did his waist go?" enormous.

And "Why does his torso just end in two little stumps?" enormous.

And as in, "Is it really possible for a 2 month old to have double chins?" enormous.

This has put the fear of God into me.

My child birthing experience might require more than the average drugs. and procedures. and possibly a veterinary scale.

Seriously! Something that large is going to come out of me? Or rather, be in me?

I'm sparing you the pain from seeing a picture of infant me however.

Though I was not huge (errm in the 6 pound range,) I was however, not a cute baby.

I'd burn all of my baby pictures if it was allowed.

Even as a child, I'd look at pictures and say "ewwww, what was wrong with me?" My mother would smile sweetly and say "Nothing honey, you were precious."

Why not just call me "special," already?

By toddler hood I had grown into my face, my eyes had lost that creepy cross eyed-misplaced look, and my head had lost all resemblance of a potato.

Praise the Lord!

So, with the combined forces of massive Paternal genes and hideous baby Maternal genes....

I'm really up a creek without a paddle, now, aren't I?

I kid, I kid.

We're so excited about this whole pregnancy thing, but have yet to find the words to explain how we are feeling and what we are doing.

I blame that on the language school. It turns my brain into a form of tomato soup, everyday by 2 pm.

I come home.

I sleep for 3-4 hours.

I make dinner. Or, send Ian out to pick up dinner.

Then try to concentrate for an hour or two on homework before my brain completely sizzles out.

Which explains my lack of blogging posts during the last week or two.

I apologize for my absence.

I can't promise I am back in full blogging swing, but hopefully we're at least on the upswing of this slump.

WOW! That is craaaazy!! I would be scared too. Omgoodness. I don't know if I've ever seen a baby that big. I'll be praying for a normal sized baby for you!

And my husband was a little 5lb baby. I'd like one of those please. :]

Kelley said...

oh goodness he was quite the chunker! But a cutie, and I am sure you were a cute baby as well! Hope you start feeling better soon!

Jessica said...

Oh my gosh, this is too funny!! I'm sure your baby will be beautiful :-)

AW! Your husband was so cute!

Unknown said...

Pleased to hear everything is going well and I really hope you don't give birth to a whopper of a baby either.

Derek and I have got big baby genes coming from both sides - I think I was 8lbs, 9 ounces, and Derek was 8 lbs, 15 ounces, or something like that. That combined with the fact that whenever they measure our baby he/she is measuring ahead of schedule, and we may have a pretty big baby on our hands!

Kristin said...

Hehehe maybe you can knock that woman that just popped the 13lb baby out, out of the record book! Hehe

Kelli said...

" head had lost all resemblance of a potato." LOL! Silly girl - you were cute as a button!! And this baby is going to be HUGELY cute.;)

Heather said...

The chubbier the better! Babies are meant to be chubby!! Congrats on your pregnancy!

Hahahaha I feel the SAME way!! I was 6 lbs. 10 oz. and hubs was 10 lbs. 6 oz! I've already told him if our baby is that big it's not coming out! My doctor did tell me babies typically follow their mother in weight so I'll keep my fingers crossed for both of us!
