8.5 Months, Then and Now

This is alternately titled,

The Top 10 Ways My 8.5 Month Old Child Reminds Me of Myself at 8.5 Months Pregnant.

#10 – She alternates between runny poops and no poops. Constipation sucks.

#9 – Related = she farts like a trucker (or my husband) living on a diet of beer and cheese.

#8 – She wakes up in the middle of the night to eat and pee.

#7 – She often pees her pants.

#6 – Her belly is getting big enough that it’s hard to see her toes.

#5 – She is tired all the time, but fights taking naps when she should because there is so much to do.

#4 – She is awkward and loses her balance all the time, and though she usually catches herself before falling, it is definitely not guaranteed.

#3 – She vacillates between laughter and tears for no reason whatsoever.

#2 – She is outgrowing her clothing by the day.

…and the number one reason she resembles the person her Momma was just 9 moths ago?

#1 – She constantly drops food on her chest and/or belly, looks at it, and then nonchalantly picks it up and continues stuffing her face.
