Who's That Guy?

Yesterday was a momentous occasion. We were at the mall and I wanted to poke around the maternity store. This is when Tom usually finds something else to do. But he came in with me. Even though I warned him that I would be looking at bras. He stood right in the middle of the racks as I explained the various gadgets that make up a nursing bra. Then he encouraged me to try things on (not the bras you pervs). Tom stood faithfully outside the dressing room and asked to see how I looked. He even picked out pants for me to try on. Apparently he has a real soft spot for women in overalls. I didn't buy any because they made me look too pregnant at this point. So it seems that this pregnancy is really having an effect on my dear husband. I can't wait to see him in birthing class!
