T-Minus Who-Knows-How-Long

Okay, okay... Technically it's a day.

11 hours if we're counting until midnight, but let's be realistic here!

The good news is, I still feel incredibly comfortable! Sure, my belly is huge and full of baby, but I still feel really good! Uncannily good...

The bad news is, I still feel really comfortable! *sigh* Shouldn't my days be riddled with contractions by now? I just don't know what to think...

BUT--the end is in sight. The latest this baby will be coming is November 4th, because if she's not here before then--my doctor is going to induce me. So that's crazy exciting.

First off, here are some shots I took back when I was 31 weeks along... I thought the contrast between these and the ones we took last night are pretty funny. But how lame are we? We didn't take any belly shots between 31 weeks and 39 weeks (practically 40 weeks...)!


And here are the ones from last night...

What? I look tired in this one? It was past midnight. Want proof? Check out the clock on the wall behind us. Yes--we partied it up on our last Friday as a family of two. And it may or may not have included a binge at Tucanos...

Two more... You know... just in case the two pictures above weren't enough to give you an idea of how pregnant I am...

So why haven't I blogged forever? Mainly because I don't feel like I have a ton to blog about! I don't have any complaints about how I'm feeling, and until about a week ago, we didn't really have very many baby items for me to talk about! We had a crib, changing table, etc... But I already blogged about those!

OH! Tangent! Remember that crate I mentioned briefly in my last post? From JoAnn's?


No biggie. But you're going to hear about it now! I decided I wanted to put blankets and extra burp cloths in there, all rolled up cute-style. But I couldn't figure out where to physically put the crate.

Disaster? Almost.

Luckily I had a stroke of genius. I pulled out Kirby's tool bag, got myself a screwdriver and a couple screws, and BAM! Instant shelf. But more than a shelf. A shelf with sides! And I can still put stuff on top. Awesome? You bet.

All in all--I cannot wait to meet my little girl. And make those tutus I bought tulle for a week ago. They are going to be stinkin' cute. But mostly I can't wait to meet my little girl. :)

T-Minus 18 Days

How weird is that!? We've dropped into the teens. I couldn't be more excited. I'm still feeling fantastic--hence the incredible lack of posting. I feel a lot bigger since the last belly picture I posted. I guess that's a good thing, considering it's been almost two months? But I've really popped the last couple weeks. I'll try and get another belly shot up here.

I have, however, taken up the bad habit of eating lots of chocolate-y and sugar-y stuff the last week or so. Butterfingers... Mint truffles... Double-stuff oreos. Yum. I was doing awesome on my pregnancy weight gain, but we'll see how I fare tomorrow at my OB appointment! :)

Not two minutes ago our little girl knocked on my stomach. Literally. Not the usual pushing and poking--an actual rhythmic KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK! She wants to come out and play. Unfortunately she hasn't yet come to realize that the door out is down, and not up. Sigh. :)

Kirby and I went to the BYU vs. CSU game a couple weeks ago. It was a lot of fun. The walk back to the car ended up being a little more painful than I expected, but other than that--AWESOME.

Oh. And check out our crazy-awesome sunglasses. :)

I hit a goldmine at JoAnn's craft store the other day. Baskets, crates, hat boxes... Oh man. The photo opportunities are booming! Can't wait. I'm going back today to get supplies to make a little tutu. Paha.

In fact--I think I will go now!
