37 Weeks and Showing It!

I am ONLY posting this picture because of the request of a couple of friends whom I never get to see.  It has been a LONG day, but I had no idea how much my appearance proved it until I looked at the pictures David just took!  It's late now - about 11 p.m. - but, before the day was over, I did want to mention that I hit the 37 week mark today and had a good doctor's appointment.  Not much has changed since last week - just about 1/2 cm more dilated.  The nursery is coming together (thanks to a kind friend donating her time and decorating skills) and I am feeling more prepared for Claire's arrival (thanks to the lavishings of our church family, as well as an efficient washing machine!)

John David had a good tour of the hospital this past Monday.  He only asked to go back to the car two or three times :)  He is going to be a great big brother, and hopefully our mini tour will help him feel more confident on the day of his sister's birth.

Katie - you always look beautiful! :) I'm glad to hear that the hospital visit went well for John David! I've been praying that he will easily adjust to that environment and all of the people that will be coming and going while you're there. I can't wait to meet Claire! :)
