aha! Critter IS my baby!

We've been finding several things that make it really clear this is Alex's baby--like the fact that eating Chef Boyardee out of the can is suddenly NOT a weird/gross concept to me.

At last, I found one for me!

I went swimming at the lake near my sister's house and it was kind of a chilly day. I was getting in gradually, trying to accustom myself to the water, and everything was fine. I was only getting in the water for the belly-floating properties, or I wouldn't have bothered to face the chill!

Well, I finally just bit the bullet, dunked in to my neck ("it's not even cold afterward!" my mom and sister assured me...), and was instantly freezing--I didn't recover from the shock at all! The funniest part was that the baby instantly got all huddled up under my ribs, so tightly crunched and so far away from the outsides that you could press on my belly and not encounter baby anywhere!

After this I realized I should have known what would happen, since if I have a warm plate of food or a cat on my belly, Critter inevitably cozies right up to the warmest spot. :) Alex is doomed--I have someone on my side for thermostat settings!

It's always nice when you can find some small speck of yourself in your child! Take it from someone whose baby is a carbon copy of Dad. :D
