35 Weeks!

Jef and I finally got around to doing pictures. We went out this weekend and went on the walking trail behind our townhouse and found a nice spot for taking pictures. We went online and looked at maternity photos to get some ideas for poses beforehand (some are a little cheesy, but we figured might as well try it). While Jef was setting up the tri-pod, a biker went past on the trail and yelled "take it off" at me! I'm not sure if he realized how inappropriate his comment was or if he was just being funny - I like to think that he was so taken by my beauty that he didn't care I was prego :-), but Jef and I were cracking up the rest of the afternoon over it.

33 Weeks!

33 weeks down - only 4 more to full term! I feel enormous and it is getting harder and harder to get off the couch. I feel like I have an alien in my stomach - Madeline moves around and it looks so crazy! Right now her butt is up in the left corner of my belly and it makes me lopsided. We took this picture a couple weeks ago when we were out for a walk.

Jef and I have been busy getting everything ready for the baby. The nursery is pretty much ready to go and we have a bassinet and glider in our room for the first few months. We have been really lucky at finding steals on Craigslist and having good friends with baby girls. One of my coworkers gave me her daughters Pottery Barn nursery bedding and our good friends Kate and David have given us an entire year's worth of baby clothes! We've also gotten a lot of great gifts from friends and family, and have very little left to get.
