We are currently 25 weeks and counting; however, when people ask me how far along I am or when I'm due, they are usually suprised that I'm only 5 1/2 months along. I know my belly is growing and growing by the day and probably looks rather big for only 25 weeks, but I do have a short torso, so I think the baby doesn't have a lot of room to stretch downwards so he has to go outwards. That's what I think. So this is me at 24 weeks.
And this is me at 25 weeks...

It seems like everyone wants to recommend a book to me now that I'm pregnant. I'm a reader, so I don't mind it. There have been 2 that I really like. Pregnancy Week by Week is very informative, and I like it because it tells me what to expect for each week, which is really important to me because it's my first time. It also tells us how big the baby is and how big I should be. :) The book that I have been reading the past two weeks is The Girlfriend's Guide to Pregnancy. The disclaimer says that it's everything your doctor doesn't tell you. This book actually makes me laugh out loud because the writer is so blunt. It also made me feel not-so-ridiculous for waking up 2 weeks ago in the middle of the night crying because I was thinking about what I might feel if my dog died. I'm not crazy; I'm just pregnant.
One of my favorite things about being pregnant is that it a pregnancy season amongst my friends (and most of them are having boys). It makes it more fun to go shopping and go out to eat with my pregnant friends than by my pregnant self. Last week I got to hang out with my 2 best friends from middle school Heather and Miriam. Heather just had Baby Brayden 3 weeks ago, and Miriam is due in 2 weeks. It was so much fun visiting with Heather and her adorable little boy. It's so hard for me to fathom that I will have one that little in a couple of months. The most fun part is that we are all having boys and are looking forward to them being in the same class at Child's World in a few years.

Bocephus wearing his "Big Brother" shirt.
As you can tell we really love our animals.
Ever since I was little my mom has always created a scavenger hunt to give us our big present at Christmas. She still does this game even though her youngest is 21 and we don't have any kids around. But we all get really excited running around the house to get the next clue. So I really wanted to come up with a creative way to share our news with our parents since this is our first child, and I had a little bit of time on my hands. So in the spirit of Waller tradition, I made up a scavenger hunt for our parents. At the end they each got a present to open, which was an ornament that said "Welcome Baby Boy," which I thought was fitting because we are having a Christmas baby.
Here is a little bit of the fun we had on the scavenger hunt...
