Cankles, school, and kicking, OH MY!

Well school has started, and so have the cankles!! My first cankle experience was the week before school started at Meet the Teacher Night. As I'm changing clothes in the bathroom at school, I realize that I have cankles!! My feet and ankles were so swollen that I couldn't even get my feet into my pretty shoes that went with my dress. Now, you know me, I'm WAY too much of a klutz to wear anything too high heeled or fancy, so don't think I was trying to be a fashionista and forgetting my current no, I'm still a practical girl! They just wern't the frump shoes I'd been wearing all day long at inservice. Anyway, needless to say, hormones took over and I burst into tears. I just couldn't stop it! Luckily I have the BEST teaching partner in the world, Katye, and she fanned my face, made me sit down, and finished making sure my classroom looked just perfect. She assured me that all was well and that it was normal to have swollen feet. Thank God for Katye!!

The first week back at school has been absolutely exhausting! The first week back is always tiring, but doing it pregnant puts it in a whole other category! But tomorrow is Friday! Woohoo! I've sadly realized that no matter what shoes I decide to wear, my feet will be swollen at the end of the day. Sometimes I feel like they're going to fall off at the ankles...haha Speaking of shoes, I bought some black tennis shoes (I know, not the most fashionable, but hey whatever works!) to wear so my feet have some extra support. I put them on with some gray pants and came out for a little mini fashion show with Wyatt. His response was, "Well, you look like you're going to ref a basketball game..." So, I've been too self concious to wear them yet, but I'm sure the sore feet will win out in the end!

Tonight I was attempting to do my readings for this week, and had the book resting on the enormous belly, (which by the way has come in quite handy for holding things lately). Well, this baby was having none of it! He/she started kicking so much that I really couldn't concentrate on the words on the page! I guess it was their way of letting me know that grad school wasn't happening tonight and to hurry up and feed him/her! Hey, I can take a hint! :o) I'm getting so so excited to meet this little bundle of energy in my belly! I just can't believe that we've only got about 2 months to go! How time is flying! I'm so curious to see how he/she will look and act! In the words of my favorite movie, Steel Magnolias, "When it's all said and done there will be a little piece of immortality with Jackson's {Wyatt's} good looks and my sense of style." Well, maybe it would be the other way around, seeing as my style is just what's comfortable...Wyatt's way more stylish than me! :o) Either way, we're so excited to see what joys this little person will bring to our lives!

That's all for now!
