Possibly one of those "you had to be there" moments

...but I'm sharing anyway.

I am rapidly growing a belly, which is making my belly button nearly non-existant. I love my nearly-flat belly button; it is a good gauge of the belly expanding, something I can't see too well since I see it every day. I have also discovered the skin in my belly button is very, very soft.

So soft, that I probably touch it at least once a day.

While this may be kind of weird (although I'm sure I've read other pregnant bloggers who have admitted to the same), the best part about it is that it completely and utterly freaks out Aaron. So, being bored and a bit ornery last night I decided to have a little fun with this fact.

"My belly button is so soft. Touch it!"

"No!", he shrieked and cowered into the corner of the couch.

"Seriously! So soft! Touch it!"

"No!"

Then he started to whimper.

"Come on, just touch it!" (at this point I'm laughing so hard I can barely speak)

So he agreed to touch my belly and I tried to move quickly enough so that he would be touching my belly button by "accident". Apparently I'm not quite fast enough.

So then (sorry if this is TMI or weirds someone out - it was pretty weird) I got the belly right in front of his face and touched the belly button.

He was half laughing/half crying at this point, and I was laughing so hard I almost wet my pants.

We laughed for a good ten minutes more after that. Once we calmed down, I looked at him slyly and said, "well, you have to sleep sometime," and we fell into giggles all over again.

This is apparently what passes for good humor in our household.

Why are people so freaked out by belly buttons? I have a friend who refuses to touch her own belly button. I don't get it. They're such fun little things -- what's not to like?

I can't necessarily related to pregnant belly button, but I can definitely relate to dissolving into peals of laughter with my #1 Man!!!

It's good for the relationship!
