Week 34: The Empire Strikes Back

Darth Vader: So, you have a brother on the way. Your feelings have now betrayed him, too. Obi-Wan was wise to hide him from me. Now his failure is complete. If you will not turn to the Dark Side... then perhaps he will...
Luke: NO!


(Ignore the phantom Obi-wan in the window with the camera.)

  1. Telling me to ignore the phantom Obi-wan is about as worthwhile as telling me to ignore the bacon butty shop on my way to work.

  3. Telling me not to look doesn't work. It just makes me stare. Didn't you learn anything from your kids?

  4. Just realized where you're from. I'm a BC girl. Born, raised, took a hiatus for college in Alberta, then back to BC.

    Until I met a guy. Now I'm in PA. Weird.

    Anyay, this post is too cute. I didn't even clue in at first--until the scroll down. So funny!

  6. Oh my goodness. Poor Supreme Leader. I remember the third trimester...

  7. I knew I would find lego men over here. Now pass me a grilled cheese and I won't hurt anyone.

  8. As a mother of three sons, I knew right away that Obi-Wan was trespassing on some dangerous territory. Supreme Leader must have a great sense of humor for letting you use her as a lunar landing for Legos. And much patience.

  9. That's no moon. It's a space station!

  10. SL proves once again to be a good sport. Especially considering that she is soon to live in a house with even more testosterone than before.

  11. The phantom Obi-Wan -- is that you?????

    ReplyDelete
  12. I looked at the Phantom too...Lego's are so cute in space!

  13. I hope you rubbed her feet after you took that picture ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  14. You didn't drug her to get that picture, did you?

    ReplyDelete
  15. That's no moon, that's a space-- er, stomach.

  16. I see, starting the boy child out right. Most Dads just talk or sing to their unborn children.

    Listen carefully to his crying when he first appears. He might be wailing "paaadaaawaaaan."

  17. I noticed the image in the window before I read your little note. Awesome. Love the legos, love the phantom, but the beautiful belly steals the shots.

  18. Glad to see Obi-wan is nearby to protect the planet.

    ReplyDelete
  19. That is an impressive bump.

    ReplyDelete
  20. If this kid turns out evil, how will you tell?

    ReplyDelete
  21. The krappe she lets you get away with is amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  22. She is certainly a good sport- or was SL asleep?

    ReplyDelete
  23. My Love threatened my life if I ever took a photo of her pregnant. Did you drug yours?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  26. Luv it.....to cute;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Obi-won is taller than I remembered.

    ReplyDelete
  28. This is just all sorts of awesome!
    And I remember when I was that big... but, it's easy to forget exactly how it feels though. Probably the reason we are able to do it more than once.
    (Well, we'll see about that!)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I really hope SL got something out of this... :-)

    ReplyDelete
  30. At first I thought it was on your shoulder, then I saw the second picture. I'm surprised she let you do that. Way too funny!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wow, am I ever glad hubby didn't have a blog when I was pregnant.

    ReplyDelete
  32. All sorts of awesome. I bow to your greatness sir.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  34. Most people take pictures of coffee mugs balanced on pregnant stomachs... Only you.

  40. My admiration for Supreme Leader just grows and grows. She must have a great sense of humor! And thanks for pointing out the phantom. I never would have noticed . . . :D

    ReplyDelete
  41. C'est ne pas une lune...c'est une nouveau Lord de Sith.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Or...that's what happened to all those grilled cheese guys.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love the ghost of the laughing jedi in the window. I know I wasn't supposed to look directly at it...

    ReplyDelete
  44. And now we all know why she is the Supreme Leader... (and yes, I have been the victim of Lego character warfare too.)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Should I be worried that my daughter was better at recognizing that the belly was the vehicle for displaying the Legos than I was? Maybe not.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Ha - I love this shot! Your wife is a good sport.

    ReplyDelete
  47. You never fail to make me laugh man. Good stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love the glimpse of the man in the window! Supreme Leader is sport to play star wars for us all.

    ReplyDelete
  49. My God, how could I not keep my eyes off the phantom in the window?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Young Obi Wan has learned much.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I step away from my computer for a few weeks and THIS happens?! Baby Dumbass is almost here! That is one gorgeous preggo belly. I'm a little jealous right now.

    ReplyDelete
  52. She looks totally ready to pop but she wears it well :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. I sense a disturbance in the window...a lauguing phantom I haven't sensed before..LOL , great post !

    ReplyDelete
  54. Wow... for a planet it is very small, yet for a baby-belly it is kind of huge! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Last minute preparations are important...I think you guys have got things covered (but not so much in that picture!)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Okay, I totally thought the reflection was some creeper outside at first. *shudder*

    ReplyDelete
  57. LMAO! Your wife must think you are crazy. But, a fun crazy, so it's all good. Oh, and I didn't even notice the phantom until you pointed him out. That's how observant I am. hehe

    ReplyDelete
  58. Okay! This is funny!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Your wife has infinite patience. Does she get to dress up as Princess Leia too?

    ReplyDelete
  61. You're not right. And precisely why I read your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  62. My wife just gave birth. I see this as a missed opportunity. The Force was not strong with me.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Love that big belly! Does time fly right by, or is it just me??
