Um....it's Cold?

Sigh.

Deep, cleansing, refreshing sigh.

This weekend was our annual huge family event at the church. Months of preparation, planning, rehearsals, and hard work to pull off a fantastic afternoon for tons of families.

Even though I know there is still a lot of work to be done at work the next couple weeks, it feels like I can breathe a little easier.

Our office is finally moving...and for me that means a window. A window, I tell you! Granted, I only get to use the office for four weeks or so until I lock myself away in my home with my new baby, but they will be four weeks at a window. That makes it easier to breathe as well.

The kitchen is progressing slowly. We're still in the waiting stage although heating vents are getting put in tonight, everything else is still on order or in the mail.

And finally, a recent baby-belly picture. I don't really feel all that huge yet. I'm still sleeping through the night, still walking pretty normally in spite of the stretching & often painful ligaments and there are still a few items of my 'normal' clothes that I can wear. No swelling just yet either. I'm trying to be super good and drinking buckets of water every day, so I think that helps.

Four weeks? Seriously? Four more weeks before my life changes inexplicably. I don't think I'm scared or nervous or whatever, but maybe overwhelmed? People keep asking how much longer and Andy keeps joking, "Oh we still have until next year! Plenty of time!"

It's all fine until I actually look at that calendar...

I was startled to realize I only have five weeks left, so I know what you mean..."next year", but man, look at that calendar and WOW!

Best of luck in the coming weeks! Enjoy your good sleep...

and you DO look great. i was thinking as i saw you dancing around on Saturday that you don't LOOK like you're about to have a baby. i mean, you look like you're going to have a baby - but not in 4 weeks! you have been doing great about the water thing, and that probably does help a lot!

cute pic, too!

Yep, your life is going to change forever in a few weeks, but in a good way. You look fantastic!

You are beautiful.

You are so, so cute. So glad that you are still fairly comfortable. Hang onto the memory of that, and the realization that you do only have a few more weeks, 'cause my guess? It will be in the next four weeks that you will finally be ready for that baby to come out.

Happy Holidays, Anne! Have great ones!

(I'm sure you've heard this all the time, but it just occurred to me that you two, as a couple, are "Anne and Andy." Do you get called "Raggedy" once in a while? xoxo)

Is your bag packed? Haha, my girl surprised me almost 3 weeks early :) I didn't consider myself ready...but I don't think another 3 weeks would have helped.
I hope you keep feeling great!
