there was an old lady...

that swallowed a watermelon...and that would be ME!!!!!!

this is what our baby "looks" like at 36 weeks! we went to the doctor today...and there is no progress yet...but we're pretty sure that the head is down - which is a huge relief for me!!! at this point, we are still "on go" for october 5th and i couldn't trust dr. waterfallen any more if i tried. he is THE BEST and i am so thrilled that he will be a part of this "special delivery"!!

ella and maddie are excited about "our baby" and are convinced that they are having another sister! i know one thing's for sure - this newbie won't be lacking in the attention department! maddie is very funny because when she wants to see "the baby"...she insists that i lift my shirt up - apparently seeing the big bump underneath my shirt just doesn't cut it! ella likes watching my skin roll from side to side! it is so neat to see the way the age difference has them interested in such different ways.

it is strange to think that this pregnancy will come to a close so soon...it seems like it has flown by...and so many days, i really have to remind myself that there's a little human being in there!!!! i am trying to relish all the tiny movements (and the big ones), trying not to resent the billion times it feels like i visit the restroom during the day and night, and just enjoy these last few weeks as a "mommy to be"!

17 days and counting…
