Amy Is Stupid Sometimes, Part 34835497123

Amuse Bouche

Last night, I surprised Jason by taking him out for a decadent, three-hour dining extravaganza for his birthday. A foodie's dream meal.

All I can say this morning is: DAMN YOU MICHEL RICHARD! Damn you and your inventive and whimsical take on contemporary French cuisine! Damn you and your amazing nine-course tasting menu with the foie gras and the lobster and the three goddamn dessert courses! Damn you for the free birthday sorbet you sent out for Jason, because clearly, we had NOT HAD ENOUGH FOOD.

Damn you and all that to hell!

So yeah. Dinner was awesome, but my belly button popped out on the ride home.

It's not a full outie yet, but it's close, and one more pudding cup may push it over the edge.

Jason thinks it's cute. I think he can go to hell too.

When Innocent Foddie fun leads an innocent Innie to be an out-of-control-outie.

Happy birthday, Jason!

Cute bellay!

PaintingChef

Sounds like a great evening, you're such a sweet wife. Happy birthday to Jason and um...sorry about your feet. Maybe you should get them one of those sun-therapy lamps...? But just for the record, you have, like the cutest pregnant belly ever. Seriously.

Adorable belly button. Incredible detection of Babalah's innermost thoughts. And the quote from your feet .. I'm losin' it! :)

Real Girl

When Squishy gets old enough to read this, he better be thanking his mommy every day that she gave up fine wine at his daddy's birthday dinner extravaganza...

mapletree7

Have you examined it for lint yet?

laura

Aw, cute! Mine didn't do that - it just flattened out and disappeared completely.

Kathryn

HA!!! That's too funny!!! I just know that one of these days when I have a baby, it's going to be the food that does my belly button in, too..

I apologize in advance, but CUTE belly! It's not an ugly outie like a lot of women get.. Shouldn't we have known that even Amalah's OUTIE would be cute? :)

Humor Girl

lol! Way too hilarious! And you're so cute pregnant! I'm afraid I'm going to be a fat pregnant person. That doesn't look pregnant...just looks heavy. We'll see...plenty of time to ponder, before it actually happens..

snowy

i think that turkey's about done cookin' when the thingy pops up right?

Lisa B

But your nails look really great! Very cute belly. Sounds like the meal was worth it though. I'm sure baby liked too. :-)

CrazyRideLady

I wanna have a cute pregnant belly! I wanna have another baby!!

SMACK!!!!!!!

Thank goodness Common Sense landed a blow to put me back into reality. You keep the cuteness.

Mir

You are too cute. I want to put you and your adorable little round belly into my pocket and carry you around to entertain me. ;)

halloweenlover

I like the view from above, I got an email from your feet saying they felt neglected.

9 course tasting menu? Really? Can I come visit? I'll bring cute baby gifts, please?

Clink

Stop making me laugh out loud at work! Amalah, if I get fired... it's on your head, girl.

Kymba

Hubby and I did a 6-courser at a new French joint recently, with me at 34 weeks. I barely survived.

You have some chops, woman!

MrZoot

Squishy uses them fancy words.

type a

jason's right.

Cara

I think a pregnant belly is the cutest thing (most of the time)! Especially yours. I love having mine, outtie and all.

Bethiclaus

Eeek. It finally happened, huh? Scary!

It really doesn't look too bad, though. And it looks like you're in the home stretch!

Shiz

Hee hee hee hee hee!

Shelley

Just stumbled in... groovin' on the site. Gave birth on Labor Day itself, myself. (Insert tiresome jokes here.) Also, I think I might be related to someone in your family... Storch is not such a common name...

And, um, I hate to bring up nitpicky little details on my first visit, but since you're an editor I'm hoping you'll forgive me... you need your footer's copywrite date to include 2005. What the hell, make it 2006... you'll be kind of busy in 2006, I'm guessin.'

Anywho, blog on, Your Majesty.

Dr. Johnny Fever

I'm no expert on this by any means, but I'm guessing Squishy is roughly in the 97th percentile in terms of prenatal vocabulary. Smart, smart kid.

Kitty

Happy birthday to Jason!

Don't worry Amalah's feet - the belly button is popping out so it won't be long now till you see the sun and are able to hop around. :)

The Muse

Whoa, wait, belly puttons *pop* out? I mean, I knew that they turned into outies at some point of the pregnancy, but I didn't know any of this *popping* stuff. Granted, in my defense, the last time I was around a woman who was pregnant (that wasn't just some strange lady in my elevator), I was 9, and it was my mother. I wasn't really concerned with belly buttons, more with the "I'm gonna be a big sister!" type stuff.

I just started reading your blog and I love it. I just added it to my favorites.

allison

You: I'm an innie. *pop* An outtie. An outtie???

Eulallia

When it pops out all the way (and it WILL) you can use a band-aid to keep it from showing through your shirt. A little pastie for the belly button...

warcrygirl

Happy Birthday Jason! And your belly: absolutely adorable, outie and all.

kat

Hello outie!

Sarcomical

it's bumply...

did i just invent that word?

but oh my gosh you're PREGNANT! did anyone tell you?

Midge

Amalah! Your belly button is cute, even if it does have the strange effect of inducing anger (unbridled rage?).

I just wanted to send out a thank you, b/c I just bought a bunch of Bed Head products yesterday (per your enthusiastic recommendations) for my ravaged-by-straightening hair, and I love them. And the way they smell.

Eat more French food! Enjoy your belly button!
