Remembering April, with a bit o’ help from Instagram.

Well, daaamn April, you sure came and left in a hurry. Sup wit dat?

I seriously can’t believe it’s almost May — and that I’m already more than halfway through my pregnancy. What. The. Heck?

Time has been going by so fast that it’s gotten hard to remember what I’ve done from one day to the next. Thankfully, I still take time to snap a ton of photos with my iPhone & upload ’em to Instagram so I have a nice little visual record of my daily activities. Hurrah!

With that said, here’s a quick “April in Review“, Instagram-style!

sick girl

Easter was no fun. It was the only day (knock on wood) that I’ve thrown up during my pregnancy. I was stuck in bed instead of enjoying Easter festivities at my parent’s house. Boo.twins 18 weeks

Went for my 18-week anatomy scan. That’s when we found out that we’re having 2 little girls! Awwww…

windy day window

We had a few “open up all the windows in the middle of April” days. I loved feeling the breeze throughout the house. So nice!vegan pancakes merge

Mike & I went for brunch at Merge, where I had vegan red velvet pancakes. Soooo rich & filling! After that, we went to Cowpok to get my naval ring removed. I’d had it for over 10 years & figured it wouldn’t quite hold up through a twin pregnancy. I look so bare now!little wendy turtle

I stumbled upon an old photo of me circa 1980 or so. Looks like I’ve always had a fondness for turtles.

pregnancy parking

I parked in an “expectant moms only” spot for the first time. Look at those clouds, I’d be crazy not to!

Part of my (mostly) vintage glass bottle collection. I love how they look in my big, old windows!

snarky lego guyI saw this snarky-looking Lego guy in Target. He looks like he’s just asking to be punched in the face, doesn’t he? Pow!

A dorky self-portrait from earlier today, trying to remind my 33-year old pregnant self that there’s still a 16-yr old punk rock girl within me. :)

Savoring of lazy days & the absence of all things sticky

breezes in the kitchen

Kitchen ghosts??? Nahh… Just a lil’ wind.

Yesterday we hit a record-breaking high of 82-degrees here in the Buffalo area — and though I didn’t spend any time outside, I tried to enjoy it the best I could.

I opened up some windows & doors and let the breeze meander its way throughout the house. The sunlight trickled in, casting shadows everywhere. The whole house took on a very peaceful, surreal vibe. It was perfect.

Most of the afternoon was spent sorting through a 3-foot stack of old Vegetarian Times magazines — clipping recipes and piling them back up for recycling.

As of today, I’m 19 weeks pregnant & I think the nesting bug has already set in. I’m finding myself getting more & more annoyed by clutter and randomly placed “things”. I just need to remind myself that all of this “stuff” is only going to be replaced with more stuff once the twins arrive — drool-covered, sticky, germ-filled kid stuff. Weeeee!

No, really… I’m not fat, I’m just full of babies.

17 weeks pregnant

Self-portrait in soon-to-be nursery at 17 weeks

17 weeks! I can’t believe how fast these past couple of months have flown by. I’m almost halfway there!

My original plan was to document each week of my pregnancy through photographs. It would have been a dandy little plan, had I not have been so damn lazy. And nauseous. (And full of excuses?)

With that said, I guess 17 weeks in is better than nothing. Hell, with twins, I’m pretty much guaranteed to balloon to epic proportions anyway — so I have plenty of growth left to document. Lucky me.

So hopefully I’ll remember to snap a few photos every Tuesday until the little rosebuds decide to emerge. But if not, I’ve got backup. — Mike is also doing a daily documentation of my growing belly that we’re going to turn into a video when all is said and done. My bases, they are covered. Woo!
