Big and beautiful...


...isn't that how you should feel when you hit 38.5 weeks in your pregnancy? I was at Ikea the other day and caught a profile of myself in a mirror and almost died laughing. Down 2lbs one week, up 4lbs the other--all this yo-yo-ing really does a number on me!

I really can't complain too much. I have felt pretty good this whole time, but these back pains and lack of sleep are getting a bit old now. I like to politely "hint" to my baby in my belly to "GET OUT!" His favorite thing to do is kick me over and over in my ribs during church when we are trying to sing. Adam thinks he likes the loud out-of-tune old lady who always sits behind us every week, but I am beginning to think that this kid and Adam are already plotting to gang up on me and take over the house!

I find myself hoping for contractions. Is that crazy? Isn't it show time already?

Oh yeah, so many people have asked for pregnancy pictures so here you go. Keep in mind this was taken on a good day, it's usually how I roll--

You are too funny with that picture :) I thought with that title, maybe he'd come already!
Yes, you are supposed to start wanting the contractions. I think the last month of pregnancy is so awful so that we are ready, excited, and waiting for the hard work and pain that will be coming our way... BUT, it is TOTALLY worth it!!!

That was the best costume ever-you got robbed when they gave you second.
