Am I Pretty?

Ivory is very two right now. It seems like just the last few days her ingenuity is getting her into trouble. Well, she thinks it is getting her into interesting things, her mom thinks it is getting her into trouble.
She has recently combined the skills of taking off twist tops with the skill of using a stool to reach everything her heart desires. My lip gloss is no longer sacred. I have them stashed around the house, but that just means more opportunities for Ivory. She comes to find me after getting into one, and she will have lip gloss all over her face. "Am I pretty?" she asks.
I really should be taking pictures of these precious moments, but it is hard to run for the camera when you feel the immediate need to extract the nail polish bottle from her purple sparkly fingers and clean up the floor as best you can.
My makeup is another draw for her and she often comes down with something that looks like a bruised eye, but is really just her creative rendition of watching mom (at least the eye shadow goes somewhere near the eye and not immediately on my the floor, although I have found it there too).
I guess this is not the end of the world. She will grow out of it and in the meantime it should keep me busy and not thinking about how huge I am and that I still have about seven weeks to go. I hate telling people that because they look and me and think that I miscalculated somehow. Nope, I am just a blob. I'm even measuring three weeks small (can you imagine what a whale I would be if I didn't have small babies...I shudder to think about it).

We don't need to imagine what a whale you would be if your babies weren't small, I got that department handled with my enormous baby boys. Just picture how big I was and you remember what a whale really looks like...

I bet you look adorable! Although I know it never feels that way...

I just found a blog of a girl I grew up with in my home ward and she said she was in your guys' BYU married ward. Her name is Kristi and I think her hubby's name is Earl. What a small world this is!

So sorry about the un-sacredness of your make-up. I love that they try to copy mom! And by the way, you are anything but huge. You look darling!

I don't know what you or other people are talking about, you don't look that big. You look like a cute pregnant lady. I'm not looking forward to when Lyncoln getting into more.

I think you look so cute pregnant! You're not even big-I'm pretty sure I look as pregnant as you do...and I'm not even close.

I tend to show big and early. Ugh. Like right now.

You're way cuter pregnancy than I am.
