well, even though the insurance normally only covers one ultrasound, my midwife ordered another one for me.... i told her that i was sad that i couldn't find out the gender and when she measured my belly, she said i was small... the perfect reason to get another ultrasound :) and so, today i went, with the fullest bladder around.... and whadda know?! the baby decided to show us that she is a girl!!!!!!!
she has a nose like diego and the roundest noggin (like diego).... she likes to play with her toes and her umbilical cord.... she is already facing head down and so my getting kicked all the time in the ribs makes sense... and her bump is always trying to squeeze by the ribs too.... her feet are right on my belly so all the many movements i feel, i fully understand now :) she is quite the wiggler and i am just so darn happy that i can stop calling the baby, "the baby" or "it"... ah, i am too happy to even work on art!
and now, for the art news.. i am participating in my first paperbag book swap hosted by theresa... i wanted to do a more collage style, like most people who do these sort of books.. however, since that isnt my style, i decided to be true and honest and make it the best way i know how... the theme is time.... i have a full schedule everyday and a long to-do list... so time is important to me... thus, the reason for the theme.... so here we have a self-portrait of me working on art, with my belly sticking out :)
here is the back cover of the book.... its another portrait of me trying to juggle the duties of baby (a girl... did i tell you its a girl?! haha)... now, i would never look this good at 6am- especially with these curls... but well, you get the gist.... tomorrow i will have images of the tag insert and more info on this project... but i really should go work on it while diego is away.... ah, i am really happy everything is working out today....
