32 weeks.

31.5 weeks, really?
31 weeks
i can't really believe how close i'm getting to b-day. i also can't believe that i have around 8 more weeks to g-r-o-w. i already feel like i look 9 months pregnant, so i can't imagine how it will really be. this might be the last picture i post of me. we'll see how it goes.

we bought a new dresser for the baby this weekend, and got a few diapers in the mail this week. we also watched happiest baby on the block, which made both TH and I a lot more confident in how we'll be able to take care of a newborn. dr. harvey has all these tips about how to soothe a newborn, calling the first 3 months of life the 4th trimester. all the tips he gives are basically things that help a newborn feel safe and secure like they were in the womb. kind of cool, we'll see how it works for us!

the weekend went by too fast, as always. dinner with newlywed friends on friday, saturday brunch at belga, nap, and shopping in georgetown, followed by a rousing game of POWER GRID, our new board game obsession.

and here is me, as a pregnant zombie lady. i'm trying to figure out some good ideas for a halloween costume (i will be one week from due date on halloween).

You look great.

Speaking of pregnant zombies, that was my Halloween costume when I was abut 8 months preggo last time. Here's the part I thought was sooo clever: I wrote on the lower part of my shirt (over the belly, obvs) "I'm With the Undead" with an arrow and Chris wrote on his shirt "I'm With the Unborn" with an arrow. Mua ha ha. Feel free to steal that. Or make it better. Or just not dress like a zombie b/c looking back at my pictures I look pretty bloated and gross.

and P.s., Dr. Karp's pretty good. Saved my sanity a few times (and the other times . . . well insanity kind of comes with the territory so it's okay).

Julzie dont you know vertical stripes make you look skinny? Horizontal ones make you look prego.

mike, i apologize ahead of time for slapping you next time i see you because you just don't say that to girls. even if they are your sister. *sigh. having 4 sisters didn't teach you that? i feel like we failed.
