1. So, girls, my rings have never really fit. I mean they really don’t fit now because I gained 40 pounds and am still holding onto a lot of water weight in my hands and face. But even when I’m not pregnant my rings are snug. I think I was having a skinny day when I got fitted for my ring back before we got engaged.
They always feel tight in the summer time and TC could tell you a story about me trying to tug on my ring on a hot day in the middle of Chicago that almost ended tragically. But, anyway…
I took my rings with me to my parents’ house and one day they fit! They went on so easily! But guess what. They wouldn’t come off. So I decided to just sleep in them and try the next day. The next day, after about an hour of soaking my finger in ice water (to make it smaller), spraying it with Windex (a suggestion from a Twitter friend), using liquid soap and Aquafor, my finger just got more and more swollen. And it almost started bleeding from all the tugging!
I found a jeweler who said they could cut them off for me with the little ring saw. Super sad. Look at my tragic finger after he cut the rings off.
My rings are currently being repaired and resized and I should have them back in two weeks.
2. My sweet Hazer is smiling! It started a little over a week ago and he does most of his smiling first thing in the morning. We had a pretty good night of sleep last night and he was just so happy this morning and wouldn’t stop smiling or cooing. I can’t believe he has already reached this milestone. Time goes so quickly!
3. Hudson had a great time at my parents’ house. We all did, but Hudson is at such a fun age where we can do really fun things. He played outside in the baby pool. We went to the Indianapolis Children’s Museum and he had such a great time. He woke up the morning we got back asking for KK and Poppie. Fortunately, we’ll see them again soon! I think 2 is such a fun age– a challenging age– but a really fun age!
