Halfway to Baby!

If you haven't yet heard our exciting news, we are looking forward to welcoming a baby boy into our family on Nov. 1. We feel a bit crazy thinking of the infant care coming our way again after years without it but we know we are doing the right thing. The kids are all ecstatic and my belly gets frequent love from the girls. Drake is not as touchy but is happy to finally have a brother.

Here is a picture of me at 20 weeks, halfway through my very last pregnancy.

I had forgotten how big you really get by the end. I was expecting in my head to be not much larger than this when I delivered. Now I panick when I think about how big I will probably be. My body is well versed by now in what all these hormones are dictating to it and it is responding with enthusiasm: expanding belly, round ligament cramps, swelling extremities. Oh, yea. I remember those parts now. The baby moves often so that is the fun part.
