No those are not measurements of my body by any stretch of the imagination. In fact I would hate to know what my measurements are at this stage of the game! I can barely tie my own shoes and finding a comfortable position for sleeping has become quite the challenge. When I was typing the numbers I had "I like big butts and I cannot lie going thru my head"... pregnancy does strange things to my mind. Lins, if you are reading this do you remember how many times we were forced to listen to that in Jeff's car!?

Anyway.....those numbers do represent how I have spent the last 97 weeks of my life. I don't even know what made me think of it, but I realized that my life has been consumed with having a baby for that long! I was pregnant with Caroline for 25 weeks, not pregnant and wishing I was for the next 36, and then for the last 35 I have been pregnant with Brooks. Up until the last couple of weeks I have felt pretty good, but suddenly I am very uncomfortable and having a really hard time making it thru the days at work without a tear here or there. So...when I look back and think of it, WOW! 97 weeks = 679 days! That makes me realize that the next 37 days should go by pretty fast and who knows he may even come before that!

I tried out a new church yesterday and really liked it. Something that the pastor said stuck with me and I wanted to share it with you. "The same sun that melts wax hardens clay". Think on that.

What a sweet glimpse into your life these days. This is the final stretch, isn't it? I read the "35" and thought WOW! Then I realized I'm at "32" and that's quite a wake up call, too! Can't can't can't WAIT until Brooks and Abigail have made their way into this world!!

I hope the time flies by and then I get a wonderful email saying, "He's heeeeeere!"

I feel ya on the completely uncomfortable and ready to be done front. I just want my baby home.
