The bump goes to Washington (Week 29)Posted: April 11, 2012
Tim and I decided to go away for a weekend, somewhere we could get to by train, the only means of transportation I currently deem acceptable. Tim especially likes Washington, DC, and the vague urge to “go away” before the baby comes proved enough of a motivator to spend a weekend in our nation’s capital.
And, of course, bump photos were taken. I’m wearing an official maternity shirt in this photo, so I look especially pregnant. And if you’re wondering, yes, the shirt does have strings to tie; the sweater is just hiding them. You aren’t allowed to put a maternity tag on clothing unless it has strings.
The bump looks especially big in these photos at the Capitol. If I were laying on my back , I’d look just like the building.
However, the bump make my legs look skinny. Being evenly proportioned is overrated.
Not wanting to show partiality to the legislative branch, we also took a bump photo in front of the White House. The photo was taken after the chaperones of a high school group bravely evacuated their students from the area before the students could read and comprehend the signs carried by a small group of Occupy DC protesters who marched in front of the White House. You don’t take students on a field trip out of town for them to be exposed to new ideas.
