Large, Luscious and Overdue

Well, the luscious part may not be true, but I'm trying to stay positive. :) On Friday while chatting with my dad, Jason told him that I was "very large with child indeed," which of course prompted him to request pictures. (My dad has never seen me at any stage of pregnancy.) So, here is the latest picture of me, a full 40+ weeks pregnant. I think it is sweet the way that Weston is always trying to "kiss" the baby... It's kind of a weird feeling to be "overdue." The way I see it, the baby really is NOT overdue, though, since due dates are the result of an imperfect guesstimation to begin with... but it's easy to get impatient when you've had a specific date in your head for so many months!
However, I do believe firmly in letting mother nature do her thing. The baby will come when she is ready, which is what matters most to me.
As an aside, Weston ran outside at about the same time I sat down at the computer to write this post. I thought I had better go check on him really quickly, when I found the stinker playing happily... in the buff!
Well, at least I won't get bored while I wait for labor to start!

Go, Mama, go! Now is the time for that pedicure or massage you may have been wanting. Reward yourself for being so great with child!

Michelle, you look beautiful. Any moment now :) Can't wait to hear the good news (I guess baby didn't get the memo that she was supposed to come on Elijah's b-day!)

You look so great! I was really hoping she'd come was James' bday:)
So, if you're bored, would you let me practice some of pregnancy photography???? But, I totally understand if you don't feel up for it!
