Welcome to week 16 everyone!
Take a look at the picture. You may have to take a close look, but there is a belly getting started there. Just don't make any comments about size or shape. Apparently, pregnant people think that's a sensitive issue. If you don't think so, just ask the bruises on my arm.
Crankiness has been a new issue for us these days. I guess one of the worst things you can do is make bread that's too dense. We had a real meltdown here about the bread and almost saw some serious casualties. Remember, pregnant people like their bread just so, and if you tweak the recipe, you are only inviting doom upon your head.
We went to Baby 101 class on Saturday. Basically it was "How not to kill your infant" class. It really started to make it real for us because there were some VERY pregnant people. We had to line up according to due date. We were very, very last, but hey, Jen likes her information and she likes it early. One couple looked like they were ready to pop right there.
We practiced changed diapers ("be careful, dads will put these on backwards"), burping ("be careful, dads will use a flat hand and hit too hard"), and engaging the baby ("be careful, dads will rough house too much").
We left thinking, "be careful, dads are idiots."
We also had to go around the room and say one thing you could do to stop a crying baby other than shake it to death. I suggested Mountain Dew and a Nintendo Wii.
Everything else is progressing fairly smoothly for now!
