read the belly

that's it. just 8 weeks (maybe even a little less) until a new milinovich gets squeezed into this world. we've been preparing: i finished painting the nursery this weekend. we've whittled the name list down from about 25 names to 10. we are going to the hospital this weekend to get everything squared away there. we have been trying to teach jack about 'baby brother' and we will be giving him a babydoll soon, so he can learn what it is to take care of a baby. we have been freezing meals, so shannon doesn't have to cook once the baby is born (and she also doesn't have to eat cup-a-soup every day, since that is all i know how to cook). anyway, the pages on the calendar keep turning, and the months have been dwindling down to weeks. read the belly: the baby is coming soon!

ps. i might be in big trouble because i absolutely did not ask shannon's permission to include pictures of her bare belly on my blog. oops...

I love pregnant bellies!! I guess I will love them until I have one myself and have trouble sleeping and have to pee frequently and all the other things I've heard about. But until then, I still think they're totally adorable.

i would gladly rub that beautiful belly.

shannon is so cute - but i am wondering how she's scheming to kill you for posting the pics w/o her permission!

All pregnant women are beautiful, and Shannon is certainly no exception! Wow, are you sure she can have that belly grow for 8 more weeks? Yikes! How exciting that we are almost done waiting to meet our new little boy. I am so ready!

i was just showing my friend heidi these pictures because i though they were adorable. and then she goes "i would kill my husband if he put pictures of my like that online." i was defending you "oh no he definitely would ask her permission first, he's not an idiot." then i scrolled down. heidi asked me to tell you she hopes you enjoy the couch. haha.
at least shannon is absolutely gorgeous!

greg - you are a brave brave man....

to shannon - you look great and you have a lovely belly! can't wait to meet the little one...

ok folks, i feel the need to defend myself here:

look, i didn't ask her, but she had me write on her belly and take the pictures with the intent to eventually put them in our scrapbook, so, since most of you are people who will eventually look at our scrapbook anyway, i figured i was just speeding up the process. i did stand just out of slapping distance when i showed it to her, but she didn't even take a swing. see, i know how gracious she is, so i figured i was alright. but thanks for all of your concern...

It was a non-toxic marker, right?

-just curious

greg. said...

oh, we didn't think about that. we used dyed rat poison. do you think that was a problem?

thanks for your concern. it was face paint. non-toxic. safe for bellies and faces and for writing "steelers rule" on your own arms, but that is a whole 'nother story.
