36 Weeks and the Hubster

I really wish our camera was working.  These are taken with Kevin's cellphone.  They aren't bad, but they aren't good, either.  I just want our nice camera fixed soon, so it's here and waiting with all our other goodies for the birth.  Yes, I will be one of those people who takes pictures of the birth.  Why wouldn't I?  This will be the most important day of my life.  I need pictures to document the momentous occasion that is the birth of our daughter!

[I think I look sleepy.  I probably am, considering how I feel most of the day now.]

And this is the hubster, Kevin, holding our cat Cassiey.  He can't take a photo without making a face like this!  I can't wait to see him as a dad.  He already loves this little girl so much and talks to her and jokes and laughs and pretends that she knows what the heck he's saying.  Sometimes he gets so close that his beard prickles my belly, and that hurts... but I know it's out of love so I try not to make a big deal (even though I hate, hate, hate when he prickles me).

I wonder who Adelaide is going to be like?  I wonder what her personality will be, who she will become?  What music she will like, what jokes she will tell, what will make her sad, who she will choose to love?  I know she will be a special person, though.  All the rest will fall into place as it happens!


  1. Its getting close!! Make sure you are able to cross off "find a pediatrician" and "go to a la leche league meeting" before the big day comes - it will help a lot postpartum! :)
    Best of luck!

  2. awe, congrats! ...she'll be like both of you :)

  3. You are looking wonderful! And you are carrying high like me. I always think about our baby's future too and what she will be like and who she will become.

  4. [Emily] I have an appointment the week after next with a pediatrician that I'm pretty sure we'll love (recommended by our midwife) and I'm planning on going to a LLL meeting sometime after Thanksgiving, when I'm not working anymore!

    [Maegan] Thank you! I really can't wait to see what she picks up from the both of us!

    [Where the Heart Is] Thank you! I'm feeling so big, but I know it's all because she's getting nice and strong and ready! (So I guess I can deal!)


I love comments! I read every single one and try to respond to most of them (during the baby's naps or in between loads of laundry). I value any and all thoughts, advice, and tidbits that you want to share!
