I've really enjoyed being pregnant and surrounded by little kids every day. My class has been so excited about the pregnancy. Every day I receive countless belly touches, hugs, and kisses for the baby. I usually have several comments every morning about how much I've grown since the day before. The girls in my class were thrilled when they found out it's a girl. The boys were disappointed because they were planning on teaching my boy how to play baseball.
I've also already had several name suggestions...Isabella seems to be a favorite among the 2nd graders. Several weeks ago as the kids were walking in, I had a little girl ask, "Mrs. Cope, did you get your baby over the weekend?" Too bad it's not that easy. I also have a boy who enjoys telling me each week that I "don't look that fat yet." Actually, he hasn't said that in awhile. I'm definitely looking pregnant these days.
Today I had a tiny kindergarten girl come up and touch my belly... She was just staring at my stomach and finally asked, "What's that?" I told her it was my baby. And she looked up at me with the sweetest smile and said, "That's beautiful!" Then she asked, "Is she a boy or a girl?" I told her it was a little girl... And she said, "That's so precious."
