My dear husband: such a way with words

We were in the car tonight and I mentioned that I no longer ask Aaron if I look pregnant anymore. (Earlier on, I used to wonder if I looked chubby or pregnant in clothes and he would always say "pregnant.")

He then goes on to say that I still think I look "small" some days, and he has to wonder, "in comparison to what?"

Don't worry, he further emphasized his point by adding, "a hippo or a pygmy hippo?" Good thing I have self-confidence. :)

P.S. My maternity pictures were done at Target. They did an awesome job and were much more cost affordable than most others. We'll be getting our baby's pictures done there soon after birth. (Well, once they are cleaned off and the head regains a round shape.)


  1. That's so funny!!! I mentioned to Russ a couple weeks ago "I know I'm big, but I'm not that big, right?" and he just looked at me like I was insane!

  2. Wow, Your right. Thank god your not self conscious :)
    How funny. But I'm sure he meant it in a nice way. Just a "of course your big you have another person inside of you". way. :)

  3. omg, the pics are beautiful! They made me tear up! Y'all are such an adorable couple. I can't wait to see the adorable-ness of baby Amber 'n Aaron! :)
