39 weeks, 3 days...and still pregnant

I know I'm not even to my due date, but it feels like I have been pregnant F-O-R-E-V-E-R. How do women go one or even two weeks past their due date? I have serious respect for them. I think what has made the waiting the hardest this time is I expected to go early because I did with Elliott...makes sense history would repeat itself, right? Wrong. Nothing makes sense in the world of babies. Here are my most recent belly shots...taken a couple minutes ago.

And for kicks, here is a picture when I was 38 weeks, 3 days with Miss E. I even put on the same shirt for nostalgia's sake.
I always think it's fun to look back. And because I can't resist posting/saying a couple things about Miss Elliott, here are a couple pictures I took of her and her BFF Maryn the other day.
Elliott has a "secret" hideout she found under the counter. She opens this cabinet door frequently to go to her place and takes many items with her...her ball, baby, friends. It always makes me laugh.
M decided to check it out too.

This age has been SO much fun! Some things I don't want to forget:
She says night-night to the Christmas tree for every nap and at night.
The first thing she insists on doing every morning is plugging the Christmas tree in. Can you tell she has a small love affair with the tree? :)
She LOVES Christmas lights and points them out all the time.
She loves to spin in circles.
She loves singing...today, Kev and I were singing on the way home and as soon as we stopped she signed more over and over. Then emphatically nodded that she wanted us to sing more.

I can't wait to see how she will respond to her baby brother!


  1. CANNOT wait to see pics of this precious baby!!! You look amazing Erica...110% better than I looked at 39 weeks! Maybe baby brother will make a Christmas arrival??? Good luck, we love you all!

  2. So, your belly looks EXACTLY the same this time! I think that's crazy! But you look equally as fabulous which is lucky for you. Hope the little guy comes soon. He's apparently shooting for Christmas!
