39 Weeks.






And surely there's only one more week of pregnancy, right? Right? Well plenty of you have guessed that the end is actually nearer than a week, so I love all of YOU. The ones that guessed past my due date, not so much.

At least we're all pretty much healthy now!

We might need to pack our bags.
Set up the co-sleeper.
Get out the bouncy seat (or something, you know, just to make it look like a baby is welcome here).
Wrap Alla's gift to Pondegore and Pondegore's gift to Alla.

Finished my last photo shoot yesterday and those shots are ready for the family.

Did a giant Target run this morning, after which we drove another 45 minutes round-trip to get some Panera for the grown-ups and McDonald's for the little one as a reward (all three of us needed rewards).


Think that's about it. I keep wondering, is this the last time I'll wash my hair (remember I'm a once a week gal), is this the last time I'll clean the house, is this the last time I'll put Alla to bed as an only child. Sigh. Her life is about to change, but for the better, I hope. I thought I'd be more emotional about it, but instead I'm so miserably uncomfortable that I can focus on nothing but getting the baby OUT.

You know it will come to an end soon. HE can't stay in there forever. I wish you comfort soon.

I love that photo. It reminds me of the photo I took with Johnnie on my way to the hospital, except your little one is all smiles. I can't wait for the day when Johnnie enjoys posing for the camera. Your little one should be here soon... Friday!
