My wife is so pregnant.

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.

Here is Betsy displaying her mothering instincts and rocking our baby. A little early but whatever we can do to prep, we're doing it.

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.

Ya I thought it would be fun to wash and fold those cute little baby clothes...that got old after 5 mins and moved into the annoying category.

ADORABLE! And you know who else was born on August 4, don't you?!

I can't figure out how to fold the clothes either. There's just not enough material there to work with! Betsy, you look great!!

This is the fun part of a pregnancy - anticipation and making final preparations! Betsy - you look great!

It's official. I have "fat face." It's ok though. I'm ok with it. My pregnancy jowls have settled in. :)

Well I think you look lovely.

I can't wait for you to have this baby, even though I know it will probably be a while before I get to meet him!

Yes!! So adorable! :) I am going to send you the thing we talked about next week so it should be there on time. Found the perfect thing :)

Love your belly and you look beautiful!
