Two Weeks and Counting. . .

Each time I'm pregnant Brett paints a little something to celebrate the season on my bump. With Anna, it was a turtleshell, Quinn's pregnancy was a jack-o-lantern, and "Baby Brownie" got a Christmas ornament. After the fact we decided that a christmas present would have been proper, with a tag stating, "Do not open until Christmas." My actual due date is the 25th, but with a c-section we get the option of scheduling early and anyone who knows me knows that if I can open a gift early, I won't hesitate!

Yeah, I'm pretty bold to post photos of my belly but, sadly enough, when I'm pregnant my midsection is the firmest it ever is (I won't say "ever will be" because I may actually start working out after this kid!) Also though, I LOVE having a big bulging belly-I love the attention it gets and the feeling of having a little person squirming around in there.

I love how excited the kids are about having a baby sister too. They often come over to kiss the baby and Anna keeps bragging to her friends that she's getting a baby sister for Christmas. Which, I can't argue-nothing Santa brings can really compare to what we're getting at our house!


Just two more weeks-I can't wait! My c-section is scheduled for December 17th. After then I'll have something worth blogging about!

Wow, he painted that? That's pretty impressive! And you look far too good for having only two weeks left...go eat half a pan of brownies right now!
