This is About Feet (Mostly)

One of the things about being pregnant is that you have to go to a lot of appointments for stuff - doctors, labs, ultrasounds, etc. etc. And when you already have two other small children to wrangle and out the door, coupled with pregnancy brain, some things just go by the wayside. Let's take today for example.

I fed the kids. I clothed them. I got their shoes on. I grabbed my purse, and since we were already running late, I hustled them out of the house: "Move, move move! Come on, let's go! We're late! Out the door, now!" I quickly closed the front door and turned my key to lock it. But suddenly something seemed wrong. What was I forgetting? Keys, check. Children, check. Cell phone, check.

I looked down, past my watermelon belly, and stuck out one foot to get a better look. Sure enough, there was the problem. I had forgotten to put shoes on.

In my defense, our shoes are right by the front door so I never put them on until we are literally walking out the door. But still, I was surprised that I could forget something so basic as shoes. Who ever forgets to put on shoes?? Apparently I do.

I opened the door again and stuck my feet into some flip flops, and we were on our way to the ultrasound appointment.

You will be glad to know that the baby is looking just fine and healthy, and is still kicking a whole lot. Which means I still have to stand by my earlier assertion about the baby being a match for Chuck Norris.

And now that we have body part measurements, it has been revealed to me by the ultrasound tech that my baby has huge feet. How huge? One and a half inches long.

I know. Big foot, right?

Well alright, admittedly that does sound tiny. But she was telling me that most babies at this gestational age have feet that are only one inch long. Either way, can you just picture that?? A tiny little one and a half inch long foot???? It melts my heart just to think of it. That's a only little longer than a small paper clip! And that is powerful cute.

Oh, and P.S.  I should probably also tell you the following:


  1. SWEET way to lead into the announcement. Made me smile. And love the feet theme of the day!

  2. Aw, congrats on your baby girl!

    I forget to put on shoes all the time... and I'm not pregnant. I blame it all on my kids.

  3. Thanks Shell, you make me feel better about forgetting my shoes...I am relieved to know I am not the only one! LOL

  4. Awww. And wowza on the foot size! ;) it does sound cute when you compare to a paper clip.
