    Dude. All I’m saying is, google is forever. I’m just saying there could come a day when an almost 6 ft tall, grown-ass pregnant woman wearing a pink tutu, a tiara and carrying a magic wand, might….just might, cringe a little bit, when this gets shown at her 70th birthday party. I’m just saying. But in the meantime, you are awfully cute. ‘sides, when you’re seventy, you’ll be all what-was-my-name-again??? anyways. So party on.

    Freaking Awesome! You are absolutly glowing, or maybe you’ve had too much fairy dust.

  • http://bohemianfrenchcountry.blogspot.com/ Lindsey

    I almost peed my pants thats so amusing! :)

  • http://www.madeforrosa.blogspot.com michelle

    It’s almost worth entertaining the idea of getting pregnant again so I too can have a Tutu/tiara belly shot. You Rock!

    That is the Best. Thing. Ever!

  • Aislinn

    You are such a nut…my kind of nut, of course.

  • http://lovelyracket.blogspot.com Jen

    I can’t even explain how much I needed to see those photos today!! LMAO!! Priceless!

  • Addie of AZ

    you one craaazy lady!

    But I so love that tummy. It’s beautiful!!

  • maeby

    love the second photo! totally made my day!

  • Sandra

    Love the new haircut!

  • http://zipbagofbones.blogspot.com Cat

    I assume that Leta was in charge of the creative direction for this photo shoot.

    I was not expecting to see that today. Thank you for putting a little joy back into the winter.

    Also, yay for giant asses!

  • Rhonda

    You have a little crazy in your eyes! I’m glad you’re feeling better!

  • http://lannaleemaheux.com Lanna Lee Maheux-Quinn

    I love these pictures! And they are even more funny when I think about your previous Week photos. Very silly and very awesome!

  • http://parentheticalthoughts.wordpress.com/ Emma

    Glad you’re feeling more… chipper. This is the first shot where I can tell you’re definitely pregnant. The others all just look like my everyday buddhabelly.

  • http://www.phatchik.blogspot.com Jamie Lauren

    Those pictures are hysterical! And by hysterical,I of course, mean disturbing. Lucky for you, crazy is hereditary! You look awesome!

  • http://www.lisagaumond.com Lisa

    Oh my goodness, those pictures just made my day! You’re too funny.

  • http://houseofpaula.wordpress.com Paula

    Okay, those are great pictures! I busted a gut here at my desk.

    Although I have to ask, what Miss Leta said when she saw that you were using her fairy princess props.

    You look fabulous!

  • Jennifer B.

    You stole the costume from my sister-in-law! She did that exact idea at around 32 weeks for Halloween! You look great, on the computer.

  • http://theaccidentalblog.blogspot.com renee

    that is the fucking funniest photo i have ever seen in my life.

    and p.s: i gained a pound a week for the entire 40 weeks when i was preggers. and i threw up for 3 months. and i’m 5’4″. so suck it up, sista.

  • Lisa

    I am guessing you will not be showing this to Leta until she is 45 and has completed many years of therapy.

  • http://www.moggit.com/ moggit girls

    We think this look directly references the little known “20 week crazy pocket window” where your hormones inexplicably make you giddy and full of glee. No worries, this too shall pass…

    (Although we really dig it on you)

    Joy and Janet

  • Cassandra

    Did Leta dress you this morning? ;-)

  • http://simpsonsparadox.com Meg

    Whoa, you have the crazy eye in these pictures! I wonder if it’s pregnancy or the tutu that causes the manic gleam.

    Now… when do we see Chuck in the tutu?

  • Becky

    The. Greatest. Photos. Ever.

  • http://www.jennifernoveck.com Jenn


    Was this Leta’s idea? She must have been thrilled that you were in something pink and sort of related to a princess costume.


  • http://www.musheroo.com Musheroo

    These pictures are great and you look great! 17 pounds… Psssh. That’s a “food baby”!

  • http://styckywycket.wordpress.com StyckyWycket

    Wow, if pregnancy energizes me to that point of ecstasy (tutu included), I might have to give those hormones a try. :) I hope these photos end up in the new baby book.

  • Sarah

    Oh my GOD! those pictures absolutely made my day. I assume it is false excitement since pregnancy is hell, but the previous pics were so forlorn, so I say bring on the false enthusiasm! Huzzah!

  • Joy

    What? 17 pounds? Where the heck are you storing those? Cuz you look great!

  • Melissa

    I think you look great. I would have killed to look that good pregnant!

  • Ames

    Ok, this could possibly be your best post ever! Hilarious!

  • http://shoeism.wordpress.com Therese

    L… Leta? Is that you? Have you temporarily possessed your mother’s body, young lady?

  • Jen

    Best post ever!

    aww man, you’re only doing this to appease the anonymous peepers who think the world is full of butterflies, unicorns or flying pigs.

    And these people choose to berate you on YOUR blog for not smiling in your pictures (screw them) and they don’t realize that you can do whatever you’d like on YOUR blog… great pic, a little odd, but funny…

  • http://www.whoahgirl.com Anne

    I can honestly say that this is the first smile that has appeared on my face today. Thank you for that. :)

  • http://lolarue.blogspot.com Laurie

    You Rock. That is all.

  • anonymouse


    17 pounds? Whatever. I’d like to know where they are. I’ve never had kids, AND I’m tall–and I think my babyless belly could probably give yours a run for the money. Not that I really want to give anything a run, hence the belly. :) You’re too cute.

  • melissa

    Your pictures rock! I will be laughing all day after seeing them.

  • http://www.lovesongforasandwich.blogspot.com Susan

    OMG love the sarcasm! I can’t stand it! It’s an art and you are the master. In your face haters!

  • Amy

    This post made my morning. Good luck finding pool cover sized panties, though. I’e already snagged most of them up to cover my 24-week pregnant ass. :)
