how in the world did i get to 40 weeks?
julie, 39.5 weeks
julie, 39.5 weeks.
mark and julie, almost parents.
mark, no weeks.
i totally credit my friend naomi for prepping me for a late baby. her little one was 2 weeks overdue, and she said "count to 42 weeks"! so i'm really not stressing that here we are, just about to week 40 and there is absolutely no sign of this baby coming. i'm calm. pretty relaxed. excited. and i'm really looking forward to some down time this week to bake, finish some craft projects, and finish baby's corner. but, we have begun the long walks around the neighborhood, spicy foods, and next up, this dance. let's get it started in here.

If you love pineapple then eat that too! The enzyme that helps is more highly concentrated in the core, so you'll want to eat that part too. But I don't claim know what really works.

Whether it's 2 hours, 2 days, or 2 weeks, you're gonna have a little baby super soon! Love the pics!

Love the last pic! When is TH due? Haha! You guys are so cute and your little one is one lucky baby! 11/11/11 is also Leonardo Dicaprio's birthday (fyi). Would be cool if he/she held out until the 16th (my cumpleanos!) :)

You are the most mellow, calm, relaxed mama-to-be I've ever known. Can I add a "you're my inspiration" to your "let's get it started in here"? Can't wait to meet baby Taylor!

i second what lisa said. i was just telling josh the other day how crazy it is for me to watch you BE CALM at 40 weeks! i was such a wreck. the waiting started killing me around 34 weeks though i think. so way to go, you. i'm gonna try to channel you next time around when i start getting impatient.
