getting BIGGER

Baby Brother is growing and growing

Week 34
Size of a Cantaloupe 


Week 36
Size of Romaine Lettuce


Can not believe how close we are getting
each week seems to be flying by

Still waiting on switching rooms...which is causing me to 'stress' 
AKA PLEASE SHIP BED EARLY :) 

but other than that and few small things we are 'ready' :)

Facts:
1.  Still feeling pretty good/huge.  occasionally out of breath and feeling tired, but growing a baby is work right :) 
2.  Arie still asks when baby will be here.  Today I said getting closer, pretty soon buddy.  
and he said so in 9 minutes.  I wish it only took that long :) 
3.  Feeling the nesting cleaning mode in high gear

less than 4 weeks [hopefully] to go!
