watermelon time

April 22, 2011

i love watermelon. so juicy and delicious. it is the fruit of summer and summer is here in arizona. i just ate 1/4 of a mini seedless watermelon by myself. like 2 minutes ago. cause everyone is napping. and i didn’t have to share it. and i loved every second of it.
but now i feel like i need to share this:
turn up your volume otherwise you will miss it. and don’t blink, cause the video is only 9 seconds long.

this video is real and was taken about 5 weeks ago. chris’ smile at te end is the best which is why i love watching it over and over again.
that’s how i like to make big announcements- make lily do it for me. she delivers it with great poise and cuteness. i especially love how chris says: “really?” and she answers: “yes”, but she actually has no idea what she is talking about. she never asked me what “pregnant” meant, and didn’t find out herself until chris and i had our first ultrasound last monday.
everything is looking good- baby has a nice strong heartbeat and i am feeling gross, tired, and all around kind of terrible. yeah!!!!!! i am an early-show-er, and already have a good baby bump though most articles i have read say: “you aren’t showing yet, so take some pictures of yourself now to compare during the rest ofyour pregnancy.” too late. now that i am announcing it, i feel like i can proudly display my growing midsection.
so i am due november 20th, but will be doing my best to push this baby out on 11/11/11 at 11:11. surely there must be a prize for that, right? but in the much nearer future than november, be looking forward to an avalanche of posts concerning my pregnancy as i have been blogging-without-posting for the last 5 weeks. i am happy to be living up to my name of ‘baby havin babies’ though i think chris thinks it might be time to rename the blog ‘midddle age woman havin babies but definitely still acting like a giant baby’.

    That's awesome!!!!! Can Lily come over and tell Greg whenever I get pregnant??? Cause that was just cute. 🙂

  2. LOVE this!!! What a great way to tell Chris!! His smile is priceless!! And gotta love the "yes" after the "really?" Congrats!! So happy for you guys!!

  3. WOOHOO! Congrats Watson family! So excited to see and read about a 3rd beautiful Watson child! Jihae, I missed 7/7/07 by one day with Eli and the hospital was overpacked with C-sections for people who were determined to have babies that day. So you actually may want to AVOID 11/11/11 if you'd like a peaceful hosptial stay 🙂

    Mike and I watched the video probably 20 times…no exaggeration.

    Mike's favorite part is when Chris' voice cracks, "ReAlly?" and mine is when he says, "WHA?" to Lily in a weird voice.

    So happy for you guys! Can't wait.

    You are stupid, Jihae. You aren't showing at all.
