Quick Update

Whew. Things have been crazy. School is in full swing, Dan's work has been crazy, and we now wake up at 5:30 to teach seminary. We and baby are doing well, although we can't quite wrap our minds around the fact that I am officially FULL TERM. This baby could come any day, folks (but we hope he opts to wait a few weeks).

Evidently, I am only capable of remembering to take belly shots at 10pm at night, when the light is poor and my appearance is poorer.

32 Weeks

34 Weeks

37 Weeks!

We also went camping last weekend. It was incredibly fun and relaxing. We stayed in a spot right by the bathrooms in the event that I needed to get up in the night. Fortunately, I didn't. For as much water as I've been inhaling, it is quite miraculous to me that I still manage to sleep through the night without a peep.

My belly thought it would be fun to jut out from under the life vest.

We also spent a lovely day in Harper's Ferry, and spent this past weekend studying, organizing, and participating in speed reading. Fun times were had by all.

Props to you. I can't even get Mandy to go camping when she's not pregnant.

Yay for full term! You look so cute and I can't wait to see the babe!!! Will you guys be in Utah this holiday season?? We will be at some point for a couple weeks probably. Anyway, I know ages ago I asked you for your address but could you send it again?? I really do have something for you but keep erasing your address or losing it! Love you!!!!

Now you just have to move the wake up time back 3 hours to 2:30 AM, and you're ready for baby!

Woohoo! Can't believe it's almost time! Good luck these next few weeks - I hope he waits until your term is over. :)

Love the life vest fashion statement!

Enjoy the final countdown before Harbuck Jr. arrives! Are you having the warm-up contractions yet? Are you getting sciatica? Any random leg cramps? That is AMAZING that you can still sleep through the night. Wow, what a blessing!

Can't wait for the big news!

Thanks, everyone! We really appreciate it!

Karisa - I actually haven't had any of the above. He seems quite snug and content for the moment, and the only symptom I have is seeing him wiggle all the time. And YES - it is a huge blessing to be able to sleep through the night. A friend joked recently that maybe a blessing of teaching seminary will be a baby who sleeps through the night - if that is the blessing that getting up for seminary affords, I'll take it! :)

please please tell me you are going to stop teaching seminary when that baby arrives??? You are truly amazing still getting up at that hour.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaah! You are such a beautiful pregnant person. Not just cute--beautiful! Has the baby arrived? I'm sure I'm behind on everything. Love you!
