Happy 090909

And yes, I missed posting this at 9:09 am… But to answer your question that is on the tip of your brain right now, I’m still here, still pregnant.  Last week when Aedan was playing with his new baby doll he got creative and stuck her up his shirt and came waddling over to me (yes, I believe he really was waddling) and said, “Look mom! I have a baby in my tummy too!” 

As if that wasn’t enough, a minute later  he comes back to me with a little bit of a frown on his face and says, “Mom, I jumped and the baby fell out of my tummy. You gotta jump mom!”

Sigh.  If only it were that easy!

Alas, a checkup at the OB’s office yesterday confirmed that I am in fact very far from delivering right now.  Most likely I will make it to my next appointment next week on my due date so we will see!

And while I hate getting my picture taken while I’m pregnant and swollen, I am determined to document this flattering time in my life.  While I remember my mom being pregnant (last time when I was 10 yrs old) we have no pictures of her to prove it (by her specific request).  I can totally understand that but I suppose I wish we had pics of her anyway.  So, here we go, for my posterity, etc.

003Saturday we went to the Arthur Cheese Festival to participate in the cheese eating contest and the cheese curling event though we were unable to participate in anything as it was a rained out day and yet there were too many people there to fill up any available slots.  I don’t recall even tasting any cheese at this cheese festival.  Oh well!  Pictured here are the fabulous Petersons and ourselves by the cheese mobile.

008 And here I am at 39 weeks.


  1. Hang in there girly. It won't be long. I feel for you. Those last weeks of pregnancy are a killer. Good luck with everything! Can't wait to see that little girl of yours.

  2. Ok...a couple things....gotta say that or I'll get going and forget that I have a couple things to say. #1...sorry you are "far from delivery" but really, easier to take care of INSIDE than OUT sometimes :) Though I TOTALLY understand your sentiment. I'll pray you don't make it to next week...hang in there! the "you gotta jump, mom!" comment from Aedan. While pregnant with Spencer I was laying in bed with Jordan. He and I usually snuggled in the mornings after Scott went to work. He got all serious one morning and told me he KNEW how the baby was coming out. ears perked up HOPING I wouldn't have to get into THAT discussion with a 2 (almost 3) year old. "Yes, it's going to climb up that ladder inside you and right up out of your mouth!" I was funny and I was relieved. After all...Jordan DID name him "Tongue Out" before it was all said and done. #3....we ALMOST went to the Cheese Festival....too much too do and too tired so glad it rained out. WE almost won last year in the curling contest. My blind husband did a GREAT job with that old broom. And lastly, #4, gotta LOVE those side view Week 39 pics....can't wait to see the REAL "new addition" post! And hope I DON'T see you at RS get together the end of this month....only because I'd rather you be home taking care of a new little princess at YOUR home!

    Love ya!

  3. You look great!!! And, just because your doctor says you're far away from delivery doesn't mean you necessarily are! My doctor told me at one appointment that I was at least 2 weeks away from delivery...then Connor was born 3 days later!


Thanks for your comment, pop in again soon!
