37 Weeks

Baby is now considered full term. If I went into labor anytime, they would not stop it because Baby is healthy. 38 weeks is better than 37, but 37 is considered sufficient. It feels so weird to say that. I thought I would never get this far and now it seems to have creeped up on me.

The belly is actually still growing, which is amazing to me. I had no idea it was possible for my stomach to get this big. Luckily, it has slowed down a bit... but it is a little better than my 35 week picture. We forgot to take one at 36 weeks. Oops :)

The shower the ladies at the church through me last week was amazing. A girl at our church has recently started decorating her own cakes and is considering starting a business and made the cake. It was quite possible the cutest thing I've ever seen- I told her she definitely needs to start charging!

Isn't that awesome?? I was completely blown away.

The nursery is tantalizingly close to being done. It would be done but it turns out we need to do 3 coats of paint on the top half of the room (the yellow didn't cover very well) and we ran out of paint last night and had to go to Home Depot this morning to get more. So by tonight, it will be done. It's so relieving to say that.

Chuck and I are about to head to Babies R Us to finish buying everything we still need for Baby. We were incredibly blessed by friends and family (that would be you guys), but a lot of the big items still need to be purchased. I won't divulge the amount this is going to cost us, but let's just say that babies are expensive. But worth it. Of course.

Sorry for the lull in posts recently. I'll try to be better the next couple weeks as things are winding to a close. When we get everything moved into the nursery, I'll post all the pictures of it. So exciting!

I love the cake. How pretty. If this is a beginner cake, she will do very well. Good picture of you this week. I like the haircut. My prediction is the baby will be born the week of April 26th.

LOVE the haircut! Baby is going to come out and be like "wow Mommy, your bangs are awesome."

Yay for your sinus infection finally leaving, and yay for almost being done with the nursery. I'm so anxious to come up there! I hope everything continues to go smoothly..
