Home S-t-r-e-t-c-h: female version

I’ve had a few requests for a belly picture. I like to make my readers happy. So, Mom and Julie, here you go. In all my glory:

This was taken Easter Sunday. Yeah, just add a few weeks, a batch of homemade donuts, and a scoop or two of carmel and vanilla ice cream and you can imagine how house-like I’m looking now. At 38 weeks and 5 days. But who’s counting? And I guess it’s appropriate that I resemble a house. Because that is precisely what I am. A home to this sweet girl who already owns my heart.

My belly button seems considerably lower today than it did last week. I think that’s a good sign. And the last loose ends that needed tying up before baby’s arrival are coming to a close. I am ready. I only hope she is soon!
