Week 36 with Fat Bastard Face

Yes Sniffer, I stole it...Fat Bastard Face. My face has totally filled out and I feel like the state puff marshmallow man. Today I begin week 36 and I cannot believe it. I have finally reached the point where I visit the doctor every week and I have to be checked for "progress". I feel like I'm ready and then a minute later I feel scared as hell. I can't wait to meet this little man. Tyler and I have finally decided on 2 different names the initials will either be LSS or ZSS. We have decided to see what he looks like and then choose. I never realized how difficult it would be to choose a name. It is such a big responsibility. The little guy will have this name forever. It will be part of what defines him. When choosing a name I wanted to make sure that he would not have to endure horrible nicknames at school. I had god awful nicknames, for example, duncan donuts (not too bad), tampon (horrible), contamination (Extremely horrible), drunkin duncan (high school), and my personal favorite which my dad still calls me (Tammy Faye). After 9 months of thinking I feel like the two names we have chosen are safe.

This coming weekend is my baby shower, I can't wait. My mom is flying over on friday and I'm so excited. I always miss my mom but man since I've been pregnant I have never wished more that she lived close. Some afternoons when I'm doing laundry and have to go to the grocery store I think "man...if mom were here she would come do this for me." My mom takes my crap, listens to my problems and will do what I ask without question. I can yell at her and a minute later tell her I'm sorry and she always says "what for, you didn't do anything wrong." She rubs my feet, makes my favorite foods and Tyler's favorite breakfast (homemade biscuits and gravy), makes fun of me when I'm being a bitch, she washes and irons my clothes when I come home for a visit, babysits my dogs, and loves my husband without question. My mom is open minded and progressive and has the greatest sense of humor. She is smart, funny, and absolutely gorgeous. She knows what I'm thinking and can explain (especially to Tyler) why I'm crying (especially when my eggs are cooked wrong). Thank you mom for showing me how to be a loving mom. I can't wait to see you.


  1. Man, can your mom come stay with me after I have MY baby? Sounds like heaven. Your tummy looks awesome- I can't believe you are already in the home stretch! And your face doesn't look puffy to me, but I rememebr feeling that way towards the end of my pregnancy with Apollo- I had three chins. They went away, thank goodness. It isn't permanent. I am excited to see you this weekend, and I can't wait to hear whatever you decide to name the little guy. Whatever you pick, it can't be any weirder than the name "Apollo." Good thing he's big, maybe the kids will be less likely to tease him for having such an unusual name. I know how you feel- it's so hard to pick a name, but just pick what feels right and don't let everyone else give you their opinions- it's the name you'll be yelling for the next 18 years, you might as well like it. Love you!

  2. I know Rory, I was feeling very sentimental yesterday and wrote all that crap about my mom. I love Apollo's name. It fits him perfectly!

  3. You are so funny! I lovE how you started writing about how much you love your mom because you know she'll do your work for you and take your crap! It was so freakin "Drunkin Duncan" (I CAN'T BELIEVE i NEVER KNEW ABOUT THAT! I WOULD HAVE CALLED YOU THAT ALL THE TIME!)

    I wish I could be at your baby shower :-( I can't believe I'm missing all of this. It makes me so sad. Will you write your next blog about how much you miss me and wish I could be at the birth? I bet you'd write about how you could sit on my head.

    I love you. I think you look beautiful and not at all like the stay puffed marshmallow man.

    Oh, and I'm really excited to hear what my nephew's name is going to be. I hope it's weird. I bet someone will be able to come up with some clever nickname. Take my name, you can't do much with Sarah, so I got to be "Worm", "Bum", "Bum-Licker" and "Ranch"... or just "Bunch" Oh, and "Bunch-a-Fun", but I liked that one. WOw, this is a long post. I guess i must really miss you. pEACE OUT

  4. Tammy, just be happy your face only recently filled out. I was told several weeks ago by a coworker that mine filled out. She said, "You're still cute though." So that was nice, huh? You're still cute too Tammy! Hehe. You're face doesn't look filled out in the picture, but if you're anything like me, you make your husband take about 20 pictures then choose the least "fat-faced" one.

    Can't wait to hear what LSS or ZSS stands for! I'm sure it'll be super cute. Have a fun shower!

  5. Looking good Tammy, and my oh my your baby has popped! Can't wait to see pictures.
