As this pregnancy progress I continue to have “growth” as well. Gabriel has never been very happy about the fact that my belly is getting bigger. Last night the baby was very active – to the point that you could watch my stomach move around. So I lifted up my shirt a little to show Gabriel and he started to whimper, said that he didn’t like my tummy to get big and asked me to cover “it” up.
Then this morning I was telling my mom about last night and she e-mailed back that last Friday (I was in Pierre), Beth asked Gabriel if his mommy’s tummy was getting big and he frowned and said “I don’t want my mommy to be a big meatball”.
So there you have it – I am starting to look like a big meatball and it is making Gabriel uncomfortable! I laughed and laughed when I read my mom’s e-mail. He has been talking a lot lately about a big meatball and we aren’t entirely sure where that came from. But we do know for sure that he does not want his mommy to be one! And I for one second that!
