38 weeks (almost) and counting



Well, for all of you who has been asking, here is my HUGE belly...37 1/2 weeks and growing. I am ready for Caleb to be here. I want to meet him, see who he looks likes, how much he weighs and how long he is. Don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed being pregnant. But there are a few things I can't wait to be able to do again...here are just a few...

- I can't wait to see my feet again
- I can't wait to be able to bend over and not hit my "rock"
- I can't wait to be able to sleep through the night without going to the bathroom
- I can't wait to see the bones in my feet again


Things are going well for Caleb and me. Things are progressing as they should (I guess), and we are ready to roll. I went to the Doctor last week and I had dilated 1 cm. Michael and I were so excited, then the doctor said that I could walk around for weeks like this. I thought it meant things were about to start happening! Guess not! We go back Friday morning for another check up and an ultrasound. I am excited about the ultrasound. :)

As promised, here are some pics...

These 2 are of Michael and his dad putting the crib together. Always interesting....



These are of Buddy, our cat. The blanket he is playing with was supposed to be Caleb's, but Buddy had another plan. It is one of those stuffed animal/blanket things. One of my students gave it to me.



Lastly, here is Caleb's nursery, complete (well, almost).








Now, all we need is a baby....

The nursery looks super cute. I too, was so ready to have the baby when time grew near (and to live life without peeing 400,000 times a day) It will be here before you know it. Wahoo!

The nursery and your belly look great! Don't forget to put someone in charge of posting pictures from the hospital to your blog. All of us nosy blog readers will want to see the little guy :)

Caleb's room is just how I imagined it--he's getting into the spirit of sports right from the start. =) Where'd you get that cute bookshelf with the baskets? Did those come with it or did you buy them separately? I love how Buddy has selected a "security blanket" just for himself... ;)
