This is not what you think it is.


To the untrained observer this is going to look like a belly bump pic.

You're wrong.

Sort of.

It's a picture of the sweater (ish) thing I knit in less than a week. It was my "jump start the year" project to get me feeling like I could tackle a bigger (much bigger) project besides painting the island and backsplash (tonight). I finished and wore it to work today.

So, my long held long awaited theory on belly bump pics...

People, and when I say people I mean women. Chicks. Chicks ask to see them for one of two reasons either they are going to look at them and think...
"Ugh, she looks like crap! I'm so glad I never/will never/hope I never look like that."
or
"She looks so cute. I hate her."
Either way it's bad for the person posting the pic. We're chicks. We're just nasty like that. But screw it. I made up the rules, I can break the rule. It's a baby bump pic on my blog. This is what half-baked looks like. So there. Call me a cow or hate me, but we can all agree knitting a sweater in less than a week is pretty dang cool!

Love the vest. You did a great job. Love the picture too.

Netty, unfortunately for the rest of us, you couldn't look like a cow even if you dressed up as one for Halloween! Yeah, life ain't fair but I love your guts (especially little Bobo) any ways!

Side note: Should we capitalize both B's just so it looks cooler? BoBo or Bobo?

I don't think you're a cow, and I can't hate you cuz I've never actually met you (that happens to be a requirement of actual hate)! Love the sweaterish thing, AND the bump! Congrats on both!

Wow, that was fast! It's a very cute pic.

I can't believe your talents! Seriously you just keep them coming because it is always inspiring to see what crafty things you make. WOW! I totally need to learn how to knit.
And your bump is cute in my opinion.

Agree with the Natster. She is very crafty and just doesn't admit it...and the youngest daughter commented that she would like a vest also. Wow you're beautiful.

We have been waiting to see this pic not so that I can hate you because you are skinny (yes I wish I looked that good preggy) but because this has been a long time in the making. It is a look for you and I do love the sweater!

Miquela said...

You are almost as big as me...That should make you feel better;)

***Jessi I definitely like BoBo best.

OMG!! You're HUGE!! Are you having twins or triplets or something?.... HOLY CRAP HIPPO!!! (Gosh, I'm funny!)

In all honesty, it doesn't look that uncomfortable.....yet. You look very very cute. Your nose isn't taking over your face yet either...but maybe that's a few more months. I can still recognize you. That's always a good thing. Can't wait to see you again.

I hear what you're saying, but if people get jealous that's their problem, not yours. I agree with Tiffany- you've waited too long not to celebrate every moment of this. I, for one, think that the pregnant shape is the most beautiful form a woman's body takes on. I have savored every one of my pregnancies and never grow tired of it. It's such a miracle! Love the beautiful picture and hope to see more.
