Week: 38 weeks!
Size: Hello, Little Leek! He’s 6.8 pounds and over 19.5 inches long.
Name: Lil’ Caramel
Maternity Clothes: Nothing but.
Food Cravings: Ice. Rotisserie Chicken. Popsicles. Bam!
Currently reading: Secrets of the Baby Whisperer; Renovation of the Heart; Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.
Most interesting fact: Did you know that you can’t necessarily “cook” a baby out, even if you attend a wedding in Santa Cruz when the temperatures are in the 90’s? Alas, I was hoping for just that this past Saturday, but it wasn’t in the cards!
Feeling: Better. And on a pregnancy note, large and in charge.
Missing: Mr. Darcy. Here’s the truth of it, friends: the reason why I was feeling so beat up last week wasn’t necessarily pregnancy-related, but we ended up having to make the tough decision to let our beloved dog go. Without going into details (or being asked questions – and thanks for understanding and respecting that), we appreciate your continued love, support and encouragement as we continue to walk through the transition of life without MD. I wouldn’t suggest this for anyone, especially not for anyone of the pregnancy-persuasion. We love and miss you, buddy.
Anticipating: Our little man. He finally has a crib, thanks to the 3+ hour efforts of the hubs and neighbor Mark last night. The carseat is installed (and in the middle seat), the hospital bag is packed and I’m doing my squats. Ready, set, go, here you come?!0
