It Is Seriously Difficult To Take A Picture Of Oneself

Okay, so I heard ya. You want a "belly shot". Would you believe that I haven't taken one yet? I don't think I ever snapped one when I was pregnant with Kam . . . or Kenners. And the one and only shot I have with Sierra was on our way to the hospital. Sad.

Anyway, I attempted to take one today.

By myself.

No easy task, let me assure you.

First I ended up with this one.

Oooh, nice face there Liz. Do I look like a deer caught in headlights, or what?! Apparently it is much too complicated to hold a camera, press the shutter button, and look human all at the same time. And let's not focus too long on all my beautiful pregnancy hormone induced acne.

Alrighty, a little smile. That's better. Of course, the head-on shot makes me look twice as huge. Plus, I'm still feeling a little spacey in this one.

Okay, three hundred millionth time's a charm. There we have a bit of a smile, not {quite as} spacey, and look, I'm even turned to the side a little. It'll have to do.

Now, to answer some questions:

I am about 20 weeks. {I say "about" because by my calculations ~ um, hello, I've had three children, I think I know when I got pregnant ~ I am 21 weeks, but by the midwife's calcs I'm 19 1/2. I'm just going with somewhere in the middle}.

Yes, we are planning on finding out whether we'll be having a boy or girl. The big day is Wednesday!! Any guesses? ;)

And those are the only questions I can remember being asked right now. :)


Other things we've been up to . . .

Sunday school crafts.

Is this the cutest Moses craft ever? We thought so too.

We picked out our appliances, and they have been delivered.

So happy to have this done!

And clothes rods and closet shelves are done! At least, they're done for now. We'll likely be putting in more shelving in the future.

We even made time for a quick library trip after the carpet store today. It has been way too long!

You look adorable. If I looked that while preggers, I would have had more babies. :)
Oh, and I have hormone induced acne too. Stinks!!
Good news on the house...and the craft is sweet!
I think God has a plan for your husband...I think it is another girl. :)
