While we are on the topic of increased belly size, Nicole is currently employing the use of a "belly band". What a great invention that is! According to her though, it isn't all it's cracked up to be. I'm guessing because if left unattended, it could easily ride up into turtle-neck status, but I still think it is a great idea. For those that don't know what I'm talking about, I'll explain. Nicole's belly is so large now that she can't wear her normal pants without getting Goose all wrapped up in a half-nelson. So, in the time between her size now, and her gi-normous size a few months from now, she can wear her same pants, but with the button and zipper undone. The belly-band then wraps around her waist, covering the pants and holds them together. Such a great idea somebody had. But also, such a great idea I have... me, a belly-band, and some Mexican food!
To get to the meaning behind this title, Nicole and I are requesting a little help from everybody that reads this blog. We would like some serious feedback on the following 2 things:
- For those that have kids: What was the one thing that you could not live without when taking care of your newborns? (i.e. diaper genie, something called boppers, or maybe chocolate?)
- What are your favorite boy names? Now, I know this will take some restraint (Mrs. B), but we would like serious names... meaning names like Finius, Lars and Hobart should definitely be left out of the mix. And also, if you are saving a name for your future child, then by no means include it in your list, because with Nicole's pregnancy has also come a hightening of the senses, meaning she will no doubt be able to sniff out your weakness and believe me when I say... she will pounce!
Also, one more thing to wrap up. I pulled this from a pregnancy website. It was talking about what things Goose has developed.
- Your baby is able to hear. (Dads, did you know: low-frequency sounds mimicking a male voice penetrate the abdomen and uterine wall better than the higher frequencies of the female voice?)
I would just like to point out... like father, like son. I have a hard time hearing Nicole too. Good times.
