38 weeks, 3 days …

As of Tuesday, Feb. 23. Meaning tomorrow is the start of The Last Week. (But really, who’s counting?) Yep, watermelon-sized, at a minimum, in my shirt honoring the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. It would be great if they could last another week or two, along with us.

A good year looks like this

Happy Birthday, Theo.

38 weeks

The weekly pregnancy updates comparing baby to a fruit or vegetable used to be kind of cute. Not so cute at 38 weeks, a.k.a watermelon week.

36 weeks, two days

Turns out it’s so crowded in here now, it’s hard to see what’s what.

2010’s March madness

Make your baby guess here. In the top left-hand box “Invited guests,” enter: Willanie0310. The grand prize is … a night baby-sitting. (We’re still thinking about a prize if anyone besides a grandparent wins.)

Yellow room, mostly done

One month out and we’re about as close to ready as we’ll be … roomwise.

Riley signs off.

Slow poke crib.

Slow poke up close.

36 weeks

From this week’s baby update:

Your baby is still packing on the pounds — at the rate of about an ounce a day. She now weighs almost 6 pounds (like a crenshaw melon) and is more than 18 1/2 inches long. 

A crenshaw melon? I miss the cantaloupe, honeydew days.
