I know, I know ...

It's been a long time since my last post and some of you, devoted readers, are getting impatient. Sorry. I'd like to say it's because I've been so busy, but really there is lots to say and I've just been an extremely lazy blogger. Perhaps it is some pregnancy-induced phase. (I blame all of my shortcomings on being pregnant, these days. It is nice to have a scapegoat.)

Anyway, just wanted to reassure you that all is well. The Wee One is now more than 36 weeks along, which means less than four weeks until the due date! Crazy excitement! For a long time I felt sure s/he would go past the May 1 due date, mostly because Chris and I were both very late babies and I figured our kid would be the type to sleep in. However, in the past few weeks I've decided it's an April baby. We shall see.

S/he continues to be quite active and seems to be doing well. Our new favorite pass time is sitting on the couch, watching my abdomen move and bulge in different places as the baby shifts and kicks. It's like that scene from the movie "Alien," only sweet and endearing. I am rather balloon-like but generally feeling pretty great for someone this far along. (Sleep comes a little tough, though. I'm writing this at 3 am. Probably nature's way of preparing me for the months ahead.)

Will try to post more pictures very soon. (Chris just got a new camera and I'm a little afraid of it, though I suspect I'll will become proficient very quickly when it's time to take baby photos.) In the meantime, here's to healthy babies and easy labors ...
