No, I don't mean sexy. Unless you consider hippos sexy, then maybe... Yes, I'm comparing myself to hippos lately, but not in a bad way. Yesterday I was a happy hippo, with our Jeep selling and Dana's new job turning out better than expected. This actually is a running email joke. My friend Jenny and I email each other almost daily, and she began with an adjective and an animal in the subject line one day. I think it was to make me smile on a bad day. Since then we've come up with several, and yesterday mine was Happy Hippos.
The reason I'm hot, is our temperatures! I'm not usually one to complain about the heat, but then again, I've never been entering the third trimester in July/August. And these 100 degree temps aren't really the norm for us here in Central Washington. We'll definitely plan the next pregnancy better. Oh wait, that's right, we didn't plan this one God did, and there aren't plans for another pregnancy. I'm requesting that Dr. Rowles do whatever is necessary to my tubes to make sure that we stick to our 4 kids!
And the belly? Well it just keeps on growing! I'm outgrowing clothes like crazy. Most of my shorts no longer fit. Shirts are a difficult balance. I have to find them big enough in the belly and small enough in the shoulders. Mostly I compromise on something a bit too big in the shoulders and a bit smaller than I'd like in the belly. My favorite outfits? Dresses. Most of those, when cut right, fit still. And, in this heat, they are the most comfortable thing I can wear. For that I'm thankful!
