26 Weeks

Once again I am a few days late. The truth of the matter is, there aren’t many new exciting updates on the pregnancy front (aside from the gross ones — see below) and it’s almost becoming a drag writing these weekly updates.

A Picture for a Terrible Tuesday

Mario Live Wallpaper for Android [zOMG!]

If your phone runs Android 2.1 or higher, this FREE download allows you to mimic a non-interactive game right in the background of your phone.
