Yes, Doc, the Booze Was All For Me

I have never been one of those killjoy women (do they even exist?) who insists their husbands give up alcohol while they are pregnant.  In fact, I am the opposite:  in the evening, I will hound PVT like an overzealous bartender hankering for tips:  "Do you want a drink?"  He will often humor me, and then I will solicitously (ahem) mix him a drink, or grab him a beer, but only I after I have had a sip - to make sure it's potable, of course. 

So on Saturday, being the loving wife that I am, I ran into the liquor store (obviously I don't care what the liquor store employees think of a huge pregnant woman buying a ton of liquor) to grab some provisions for PVT:  two six packs of beer and a thing of gin.  As I was balancing the beer and gin on my large belly, a guy, who seemed to have followed me in, approached me.  I KNEW who this guy was, in fact I knew I knew him quite well, but couldn't place him.  He saunters up to me with a twinkle in his eye and says, "You know you shouldn't be drinking that, right?"

OH.  Now I knew who it was.  I couldn't place him because he didn't have his on WHITE COAT.  He was my OB.


And now for those dang kids:

Keane, terribly proud of his soccer tournament trophy.  No, I was not there to see the winning game.  Yargh.

Will is speaking Chinese.  I don't know what he is saying. 

My entire family watching Sponge Bob.  Brings a tear to your eye, now, doesn't it?

And one of me:  I always have to force myself to take one late pregnancy picture, just to prove to the poor upcoming baby that yes, she is indeed a VT.  This was on my way to speak at LTYM - hence the kick arse stilettos.  And no, I didn't fall.  And the audience laughed when they were supposed to.  And then Ravishing Red Ann and I ate sushi (oh calm down I got a tempura roll).  So a successful endeavor all around.

I can't tell whose little pale leg that is in the middle of the couch. And is that Sylvie right under the TV? Snicker. Adorable, all of them. And congratulations Keane! And, for that matter, congratulations Will! :S
