Words from a Stranger

Last night I had a chance to hang out with my buddy Caroline. Caroline was in my small group for two years until she moved up to high school, and she's been in my tap class for the last several months, too. She's a beautiful girl, inside and out, and I love spending time with her and hearing about her life. (Just had to brag on her for a minute!)

We decided to stop in at Keva Juice at the end of the night, a smoothie shop owned and run by a friend of ours, for some homemade gourmet hot chocolate (the best around, btw - you should try it - owner's special secret recipe). While we were there, another lady was in line ahead of us ordering some smoothies. We all ordered, and then I sat down at one of the tables.

The lady turned to me and asked, "How many months are you?"

"Seven and a half, almost eight."

"Oh my gosh! You're so tiny!"

One of the nicest things anyone has said to me the whole time I've been pregnant. It was especially nice after coming from a pizza dinner and feeling especially cow-like!

Of course, she then went on to speculate that I must be having a girl since I was "so little." (Take that, everyone who's still asking if I'm sure I'm not having multiples!) Anyone else want to take a guess at the gender?
