Due

This baby is due soon.
I know that, but have been reminded in several subtle ways lately.
Our most recently purchased gallon of milk has an expiration date of 3.3.
And the book I just borrowed from the library is meant to be returned by 3.3.
And my stomach doesn't feel as though it can stretch much more...

Although the infant carseat isn't yet installed, I trust that it will be soon.
And otherwise, my freshly painted toenails and I are ready.

I wish you all the very best. When is your actual due date? Are you planning on a natural birth or are you scheduled for a c-section? Was Celia early or late? My first, Carleigh was nearly 3 weeks early and weighed 7 lbs. Luke, our second, was 2 weeks early at 7.13 lbs., and Emma was born on her due date at 8.3 lbs. I wonder what Cora will do. I'm kind of thinking she'll be early, but who knows!? I just hope she's not much bigger than Emma was. I've had all natural births so far. Lovin your pretty toes! I need to get a pedicure in a really bad way. ;) Have a good day.

I LOVE the toes! I hope you're feeling the best as can be expected. We can't wait to hear about the newest Betz member!

Nothing like finished toes! And love the new header photo of Celia!

What a great new picture of Celia! This comment, however, is to confirm Jenni's cuteness... I think we need to do some mother-daughter shoe shopping this spring.

What a great new photo! And I have to say most Mom's I know at this stage would never have their feet photographed. I love a fresh pedicure!

I'm so impressed you can still reach your toes to paint them with only two weeks to go. Although, you looked absolutely fantastic when I saw you a few weeks ago... maybe as cute as this new Celia pic. I LOVE IT!!!

Is the picture of Andy's feet? Just curious?

P.S. Celia is "pretty in pink"!

That made me smile, because the last thing I did before John Nick was born was the pedicure. For some reason the chaos of childbirth is a little better when you know at least your toes look good. ☺

And yes, if you can handle a class of fifth-grade boys, you’d be fine with a little boy. Although be warned that a little boy to conspire with will bring out the worst in Andy. . .you’ll go from things like buttsledding to things like atomic-fireball-Power-Ranger-buttsledding. ☺

Girl or boy though, what a lucky baby, coming into so much love. We’ll be thinking of you and can’t wait to see pictures!!

The new header picture of Celia is my second most favorite picture of her, the first is the black and white one of her by the door (I think waiting for Andy to come home from work.) ......I'm waiting patiently for an update picture of Jenni in full bloom! I want to compare it to the picture of Jenni the night before Celia came. So I can try to guess whether Shim is a male or female.
