aaaaaaand, we're back to fruit

The kitten is now the size of an avocado, and if you're like me, you're asking, 'Isn't an avocado smaller than a navel orange?'   I just measured a can of pop, and it's about 4.5 inches tall.  my baby is now the size of a can of pop!  Wow.  I should really write these comparisons from now on. 
Not much has changed, though I occasionally feel the kitten make vague movements.  Nothing very strong, and nothing that Karen can feel from the outside, but movement all the same.  They are getting more pronounced than they were a week or two ago, so I'm thinking I just felt them early; the other option is that I'm crazy -- either is completely possible.  And I'd like to understand, what's up with the dry eyes thing?  My eyes feel like a fan is following me around on HIGH.  Good times.
I'm told that the baby can now hear my voice, so I'm singing a lot.  I must say, it's nice to have a captive audience!  Still tired most days by about 3pm, (and still taking a 15-minute nap every afternoon) but not that horrid marathon-tired feeling I had.  I also got a pair of jeans from eBay, and I love them.  Between the ones I got a few weeks ago and my belly band, I'm set.  (Or so I think.  Mwah ah ah.)
Yesterday, one of my friends brought me a vanilla Frosty, which was a pretty nice gesture.  She said that people used to get them for her when she was pregnant, and I've decided to try to milk this for as much swag as I can.  :) 
Thanks, Jay!
