penguin amor.

I did it again. I think our little one is such a part of me already (hi big feet and sciatic nerve, hello cute rolling and poking in my belly), that it's like he's already here. This happened once when we stumbled across baby Halloween costumes in Santiago, and I wanted to get one. Then yesterday's conversation between me + S, who is currently in Ushuaia, "southernmost city in the world." They'll even stamp your passport saying so if you ask nicely in the tourist office. 
S: I'm looking for a penguin costume for the baby.
Me: That is going to be SOOO cute! You should get us all penguin garb.
S: Really? Yeah that would be cute too.
[I have to stop here to point out two things. 1.) S was totally going for us dressed up as a family of penguins: hilarious and utterly endearing. His willingness surprised me. 2.) I believe there are some embarrassing pictures of me dressed as a penguin, complete with bow tie, floating around on Facebook.]
Me: Really? OK, yeah, let's all get penguin costumes. Then we can dress up as penguins for Christmas!
S: Ummm, Heather. He's not going to be here for Christmas.

Has this kind of thing ever happened to you too?

Of COURSE- both my monkeys were just THERE from the moment that I knew they were- with the first I was all the more in love with Dr. J when I realized he felt the same way- they are already a part- the soul has already chosen you and S at their parents-
With my second it was all the more intense because there were THREE of us waiting for him to arrive-
I am really excited for you!

that is the cutest thing ever.

please please please tell me there will eventually be penguin family photos.

ps - a penguin costume is appropriate at any time of the year. i'm just saying.

heheh, that's okay, you can still dress up as penguins for Christmas. You could get a little egg to hold, as if you were really an expecting penguin.

I have heard it's a pregnant thing, when ladies have memory issues! :)

BUT that's super cute that he's willing to do that! Maybe next year for halloween you can do it, and then take a picture to make into a Christmas Card!
