Last week we officially became "full term." That means we are on orange alert, waiting for the baby to drop so to speak. No wait, he's already dropped. You know what I mean. Betsy has handled this pregnancy like a champ and I'm so proud of her! At the end of the days she is pretty tired at this point (I can't get her to stop working full-time!). We are trying to take it easy and I am trying to make her relax and not exert herself with offerings of fudgcicles and foot rubs (this works remarkably well).
Here is a profile shot of the the belly this morning at 38 weeks + 1 day.
We even washed our ever-expanding collection of baby clothes this week, and thanks to our friends and family, we are going to have one stylish little Santos! Sidenote: how in the h*** do you fold baby clothes? Turns out we have no idea. Also, one full load of baby clothes takes apx. 2 days to fold because it contains apx. one million items. Annoying.
Betsy is so cute. I love her round belly.As August 4th approaches, we are suddenly realizing that we need to be ready at a moments notice. Car seat installed, check. Hospital bag packed, nope. I should pack our hospital bag sometime before its too late!
I can't wait.
