30 Days of Thanks—Day #26

I am grateful that my belly has finally popped just a little bit. Apparently, I’m in that stage where I’m big enough that people notice but not so big that they are willing to ask—i.e., the stage where I just look a tad pudgy around the middle. But that’s OK with me. I just like the feeling I get when I walk by the mirror or look down and can actually see where the Penguin is growing. I’m glad for those moments that help it feel more real and not quite so far away, those moments when I can look ahead and smile, even for a instant, even if it is through tears.


  1. I envy the people who will be able to watch you 'pop', Mandy. I am so happy for you and Little Penguin popping! Only 155 days to your due date!


  2. So happy for you!

  3. Yay for a lil Penguin baby bump! Can't wait to see it :)
