The Tummy

We went to the mall today
in search of some cool,
humidity reliving
air conditioning
for my sticky skin,
smooshed lungs
and soon to swell feet.

I spotted this cool shadow as we crossed the Target parking lot.

The view was tricky to capture.

Hugo was patient - even though he said that the sun was burning his eyes.
Look! My foot is peeking out from beneath the belly!

The summer heat has finally arrived
and I am doing my best
to walk slowly
and breathe deeply.
The lung space just isn't what it used to be.

Lora - you are crazy! I like ya but I think you're crazy. There was no skirt that day. My beige pants are sorta visible in one shot. My pink shirt is an extra large maternity special and it's spread thin in an attempt to cover the bump. The thinness of the material could be confused as sparkles I suppose, as my white tummy flesh peeks through the fabric! I love my shoes tho! Bought them at Marshall's years ago.
