39 weeks and 4 days...

For the enquiring minds, Baby Stone has still not arrived. Only 3 more days until my DUE DATE!!! I was hoping Stone would want to join us ASAP but apparently the cool fall days and frost-bitten evenings make him want to jump into my rib cage and stay as warm as possible :)

My husband took me on a wonderful date night this weekend, which is exactly what a 9 month pregnant woman needs. He took me to a local pottery painting place and we each decorated a HUGE coffee mug (like the ones in the coffee shop on Friends!) and then out to dinner to settle my chinese food cravings!

Hopefully the next time I post, you will be able to meet precious Stone...I had better not be labeling my next post "41 weeks and counting..." :)

Oh my goodness, how very precious you look... and ARE! Enjoy each and everyday that you hold this tender child in your belly...he will be here soon enough and with all of the joys of holding and snuggling him in your arms and holding him up to your chest...then you will miss his tumbling around in your womb. Ah... the grass is always greener or so it seems...speck so. I prayed this a.m. that you and your husband would relish these last few days of the two of you... the quietness and stillness of preparation...get away for the winter months...speck so. Well, your m&p are ready and waiting to serve...but until continue to "wear" your pregnancy well. If you have not done so...hop onto fb and check out Ms. Cross' site of pics of new grand babe...fabulous...they will make you smile! Have a grand day! Love mom/mops...toodles for now! :D
