eight months pregnant..


Today is the day of my baby shower. Monique & my mom planned it, so I'm sure it's gonna be nice.

Speaking of my mom, she & Gail came back and they're staying until the baby comes. That should be...interesting.

After I got out the shower, I went in the bedroom and saw a white dress, white sandals, my flower crown and a note laying on the bed. I picked up the note and it said:

I got you a new dress and shoes just for today. I know you've been feeling insecure lately, so I hope this makes you feel beautiful, even though you don't need it. This day is all about you & baby girl, so I hope you enjoy it.

I love you,


I put the note down and wiped my eyes. Sometimes I feel like Blake is too good for me.


He came in the room and I motioned for him to come to me so I could give him a hug.

"Thank you."

"You're welcome," he said, kissing the top of my head, "now get ready. Monique's gonna be here soon."


He winked at me, then kissed my cheek before going back downstairs. I dropped my towel, put on my undergarments & lotion, then put on the dress & sandals.

I reluctantly went up to the mirror to see how I looked, and I didn't look as bad as I felt.

I loosened my braids, combed my hair a little, then put the flower crown on. I got my purse & shades and went downstairs.

"I knew you would look good," Blake said when he saw me.

"Did you pick this dress out?" I asked, "and what's with the flower crown."

"I had a little help picking out the dress, and Monique said the crown thing was necessary."

"Briana? Blake?"

Speaking of Monique.

She walked in the living room and gasped, "Bri, you look stunning! How do you make being pregnant look good?"

"This is actually the first time I've felt pretty since I got pregnant, so thank you."

"Aww, Bri! You're so cute," Monique gushed, "you ready to go?"

"Yeah. You're coming, right?" I asked Blake.



"Babe, men don't go to baby showers," he said.

"But you're the father!" I whined.

"I don't wanna be the only man there," he said.

I sighed in defeat, "fine. I'll see you later. Make sure you feed the boys."

"I will. Now, can I have a kiss before you go?"

"No, because you won't come to the baby shower," I frowned.

I walked off, but he grabbed me and kissed me anyway. "I'll see you later, and fix your face. You're too pretty to frown like that."

"Whatever, bye."

He kissed me one more time before Monique & I left.
