    I'm so tickled by Belle... She posted an Instagram of her "baby belly". Part of me wants to remind her that she's not "showing" yet... Not at 10 weeks. But only a small part... I won't!! I couldn't wait till I was showing, either - so I completely understand! Her excitement and joy over being pregnant is infectious, even from a different state.

    I wish I could be nearby to share her pregnancy, but logically speaking, it's better the way it is. I know she's thinking about biomom, and if she shares too much with me, it will feel like a betrayal. It's OK. I'm throwing her baby shower here! I'm treating it sort of as if I am a close aunt.

    She's about a 4-5 hour drive from me, so I can get there if she needs me. But she's away from the really bad local influences, which is awesome for her!

    Baby's daddy (Wyatt in my signature) is a really good guy. A little old-fashioned, in that he wants to be the breadwinner and caretaker. But he just adores Belle and is super happy that he has a little one on the way. They're planning on eventually getting married, but it's not urgent. I'm glad for that.

    She's doing so well, so much better than I would have expected a year or so ago.

    I asked Belle if I could be called "Nana", as all the grandmothers in the family are called "Grandma ___". It could be pretty confusing. PLUS, I don't want to take away from her mother... Even though I didn't like the woman or her actions, Belle loves her.
