Apple of My Eye

Apple of my Eye: A phrase; usually figurative, meaning something, or more usually someone, cherished above others.

Baby Wade, you are indeed cherished above others. My friend Claire sent a card this week that said "We already love you and we haven't even met you yet". Well that was certainly enough to make a pregnant girl cry.

So on to the belly.. still not much progress on the bump largely due to my apparently long torso. Don't worry, I'm not complaining.. it will come soon enough! I am getting carried away with the fruit, however. I've noticed that right now when I go to the grocery store I pick out the biggest fruit-of-the-week that I can find. The website didn't distinguish between granny smith, fuji, etc.. so I just picked the big one. I'm sure when I get to watermelon, I will pick out the smallest  one I can find.
That being said, if the baby truly is the size of the apple I picked out, it has grown remarkable amounts in the last week. We had an orange on hand that was just slightly larger than the lemon, likely closer to size. This can be a 2 fruit week.
May be a slight bump in the side view... or the TCBY ice cream I just ate.

Baby Wade also got it's first Missouri Tiger outfit this week from Dr. Laura in KC! I was thrilled (Mike, not as much). Looks like Baby Wade #1 is headed straight for the land of the Tigers. #2 can go Big Ten. I'll allow it. So now Baby has 2 outfits: Tigers and Cardinals. I like the way this is shaping up.

Well, Papa and Grandma (previously named Gaga by Carson) Wade have just sent all of the Alaska pictures, so we'll have to post some for your enjoyment. Stay tuned.

Love, Heather, Mike and the little Tyke


  1. I really look forward to your update every week. You look so beautiful!

  2. Rick actually said this: Thanks for the info and the great news about being in the second trimester. Renee and I have been praying for the entire Wade family. Power of prayer is awesome!!! You don't look pregnant at all, you look very happy! Can't wait for next weeks update.... See you in September!!!!
