Thirty-Five Weeks and Counting

Yeah, thirty-five weeks today and it feels more like forty-two!  I am really feeling it these days.  I have seriously been so blessed to have had two fairly easy pregnancies {knocking on wood now}.  But, this one feels so much different.  I know that it has to do with the fact that I'm chasing around Olivia, picking her up about 30 times a day, and bending over to clean up all the messes in the house.  Whereas before, my biggest concern was making sure David had his 4 square meals a day {and that at least one of them was egg-based}.  Sorry, babe.  I'm at least pretty good about feeding you one meal.  AND, I make sure there is food in the house.


Anyway, I remember with Olivia that I was totally fine with being pregnant, even five days overdue.  But, at this point, the thought of being overdue makes me sweat.  Are you listening, Baby Girl?  Let's be on time.  But, not too early since we still can't agree on a name.*


I know I promised a blog post about the fair, but the only thing I want to do now is lay on the couch and watch television.  Maybe in the next couple of days...

In the meantime, here's one picture from the fair of me, Olivia and my big ol' belly!


Happy Monday from the Central Coast!
*Your dad suggested Isis, Europa and Estrella the other day.  I vetoed those immediately.  You can thank me later.

You are not that big. I have seen woman who are six months and look bigger. You are doing great. Love the photo as Olivia is looking down at her baby sister. I have a name suggestion. Call me.

I think you look great but more importantly, I'm glad (on most days) you feel great. Hang in there you've just got a few weeks left.


BTW David what are you thinking. I love you son, but I would have to come up with a permanent nick-name for her if you chose one of those names.

I had my littles 2 years and 12 days apart. I was SO much more tired and SO much less patient the second time around. Good luck getting through the rest. You look great! And I hope Bazbeux is on our to do list :).
