I need to join a Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants ...

In case you haven't seen the Sisterhood movie, there's a pair of pants. Said pants fit all of the four friends despite the widely varying body types.

I need a pair of those pants.

Maternity jeans were feeling lose last Monday so when mother-in-law and I went out shopping I decided to try on jeans. I stuck to sizes 12&14 and tried different kinds on. The problem was that though they fit around the waist the legs were HUMONGOUS. So I decided to wait a while.

Sunday I grew a bit impatient with waiting. Maternity jeans were threatening to fall off so I tried on my old jeans. Actually got them buttoned so I figured I could try on jeans again. Went to Walmart to try on my favorite brand of jeans (I love that my favorite jeans are at Walmart. So cheap ...)

They fit! Well, a size 12 did and it didn't make my legs look like they were swimming.

While I'm on the whole size/weight subject I'm happy to report that Damm weighs in at 176. That's thinner than when I met him (he is SO tickled about that).

The Orclette is getting taller so she hasn't really gained any weight. After yesterday's cookies she might've went up a pound ... (it was a buffet breakfast at church and everytime I turned my back she was scooping up another cookie).

The Miniorc has a double chin now. I think he was meant to be a 10-pounder baby based on the way he chows down. He fits into 3-6 month clothing now and size 2 diapers. Which is good because that's what everyone bought for me.

And my brother-in-law weighs exactly the same as me. He looks like a skinny rail. That's just so wrong ...

But 5 months to put it on, 5 months to take it off (I didn't gain any weight until 4 months into this second pregnancy because of morning sickness).
