A little French language lesson for y'all...
Gros(se): (adj) thick, heavy, big, enlarged; fat person.
Grossir: (verb) to become fatter, to get bigger.
La grossesse:(noun) pregnancy
That's right. Apparently the French language views pregnancy as primarily equivalent with "fatness." Lovely. I'm not creating a life, or performing a miracle, or anything like that. Nope, I'm just getting bigger.
In other news, I totally want one of these baby carriers:
This is from Meg over at Montessori by Hand, and she's amazing at crafts-- always making really cool stuff by hand (check out her reading pillow!). She'll soon be selling the pattern to make this Mei Tai carrier, and although I can't sew worth a crap (I'm seriously considering trying to learn, so I can make some of this awesome stuff she comes up with) I may have to ask Kara to make one for me. ; )
