baby bump: week 40

Hi... I'm still here and still very much pregnant. Today is the day we've been looking forward to these past nine months, but I never really expected to have a baby in my arms by, or on, my due date. The Little Miss was 8 days 'late' but only weighed 7.0 lbs which leads me to believe she wasn't really 'late' but perfectly on time. And this baby belly I've got feels just about the same size to me, so, I am trying to be patient and not think about the 'when' part too much. Although that is easier said than done.

I will say the days leading up to the due date seem to be harder for me than the actual due date and thereafter. Probably because the anticipation is over, and now I know I won't have to wait too long to meet her. But it's hard to pinpoint how I feel at this time since it seems to change hourly :) Anyway, this is the last baby bump picture I plan on taking, let's hope week 41 doesn't come around this time.

I hope you will understand if I am a little quieter this week. Send some good birthing thoughts my way!

And, the Little Miss wanted to take a picture of the pretty rainbow she painted with her daddy last night so I thought I'd share :)

p.s. If you are planning a baby shower or just attending one these diaper cakes are so fun and would make great decor that the mother-to-be could take home and actually use! I always appreciate getting diapers as gifts since babies go through them so fast, don't you?
