By Popular Demand...

Everyone kept asking for a recent picture of Kate with her pregnant belly, so here you go. She's at a baby shower tonight, so I could choose the picture myself, and post it unhindered. :)

This was taken May 20th, when we went up to Salt Lake to see our friends Dave and Janeal sealed to their daughter. If you want to see any pictures of them, you'll have to go their blog.

In other news, today was the last day of Kate's dietetics internship, so things should be calming down here a bit for her. She is relieved to get that over with, and excited to focus a little more on our little girl.

Can you believe that's just a little more than five weeks away? At the rate we're going, you'll have pictures of our newborn in just a couple of posts... Okay, we're gonna write more than that. Now that Kate will have more time, I'm sure she'll be posting here every week. Especially as she gets more and more tired of moving around...

Some for me, and not as much for you...

Tonight Kate made some pudding. She asked me how much I wanted. I said, "however much you are having." She said "you don't want as much as I am having." I said that was fine.

This was my portion. Notice how small it is. I'm not saying that Kate kept all the rest for herself (and the baby). I'm also not saying that she ate out of the mixing bowl. I'm not saying anything about her. I'm only talking about my portion of pudding. My small portion of pudding.

To be honest, I'm just glad to see her eat. From what I know of pregnancy, it must take a ton of energy and protein. As far as I'm concerned, the more she packs in, the better. In this case, she didn't actually eat all the rest. But she better.

In other news, we finished our hypnobirthing class. We got a little certificate and everything. Apparently, we are now qualified to give birth.

This is not very comforting to me. I mean, really, the standards in this country for qualifying couples to give birth are pretty low. Shouldn't there be an exam of some kind? Maybe a personality test? If cutting hair requires a license, shouldn't procreation have some basic training or regulation involved?

No, I suppose there shouldn't. Imagine if the government had a list of standards that each parent had to meet. It would be like federal regulations for education, only worse. No Parent Left Behind...
