Paxlet (Pax) is the name we've given our little one until he/she is born and we have a proper name for him/her. The name was created by Mr Siili (even if he doesn't remember it). Mr Siili thought it would be funny if this little thing inside of me came out wielding a little pink axe (he's killed too many orcs in his if you ask me). So when you take P for pink and axlet for a little axe, you get Paxlet.
But the main thing about the in utero name Paxlet, is that it is something we will NOT be naming this kid when he is born.
|August 30, 2012 (41 weeks 1 day) - Paxlet is born!! He is quite swollen here from the whole birth experience, but I find him insanely cute and adorable. I'm also quite biased.|
|41 weeks 0 days - After my water broke and the last picture of me pregnant.|
|40 weeks 1 day - EDD come and gone and still in one piece.|
|39 weeks 0 days - Check it out! I actually got this week's picture taken on time. It almost didn't happen, but at the last minute RIGHT before I crawled into bed, I remembered. So back downstairs to bug Mr Siili to take a picture.|
|38 weeks 5 days - yet another week where I completely forgot and spaced out getting a weekly picture taken. I'm leaving you instead with my and my friend R's bumps.|
|36 weeks 0 days - getting bigger and not much else to say.|
|34 weeks 1 day - The real picture for the week. My shirt won't stay down no matter how much I tug at it. Wondering if I should switch to a different shirt for the last few weeks or continue with this one that I started with...|
|34 weeks 1 day - just for fun. Rusty and I.|
|33 weeks 0 days - My tanktop doesn't quite cover my tummy anymore! LOL|
|32 weeks 0 days - As I held onto the wood stove, Mr Siili said it looked like I was selling something, which brought about this picture. I think my tubby has popped (again?) since 30 weeks.|
|30 weeks 0 days - The dangers of changing where the picture is taken mid-project: the pose changes and now I have something to hold onto (wood stove).|
|29 weeks 1 day - First picture in our new place (next to the fireplace)|
At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
|27 weeks 1 day - last picture in the old place and allergies are very bad|
|26 weeks 1 day - Surviving allergies and all the dust we're kicking up from packing. :)|
|25 weeks 1 day - Loving my bump, hating the allergies that have given me a lizard-like nose.|
Mr Siili decided to get a bit "artistic" with pictures this week. One that I didn't save was his thumb sharing the view. Below is one of the more normal of them all.
|23 weeks 0 days - I just realized how saggy my boobs look in this soft bra (for at home use only). Oh well.|
|22 weeks 0 days - This is a decently normal and cute picture! I like!|
|21 weeks 1 day - Just to switch it up a bit. Plus, I think this makes my tummy look bigger. LOL|
|20 weeks 0 days - I'm not seeing too much difference in bump pics for the last couple of weeks, but it has to be growing as my pants are getting tighter.|
|19 weeks 0 days - I can see my bump, past my boobs, when I look down. It's growing!|
|18 weeks 0 days - Been feeling good and not much else to say this week.|
|17weeks 0 days - Ok, done giving picture taking instructions to Mr Siili (not that he fully listened). *grin* He insisted that I was pushing my belly out there! Huh.|
|16 weeks 0 days - It took at least 30 pictures to get one I liked. Silly Mr Siili!|
|16weeks 0days pic #2 - This one seems to be a bit more at the same angle as week 15.|
|15weeks 0days - There's something there.|
I've sucked in my tummy (habit!) while pictures are being taken up 'til now. Of course no one is going to see much of a bump as long as I do that!
|14weeks 1day - My attempt at taking my own picture.|
|14weeks 0days - Me: You chopped part of my head off! Mr Siili: Did it grow back yet?|
|12weeks 4days - I wasn't ready yet!|
|12weeks 0days - Paxlet is measuring spot on!|
|11weeks 2days - Ok, I'll smile|
|10weeks 0days - nope, nothing there|
|7weeks 5days - I'm not gonna smile!|
