36 Weeks

Me Front 36 wks web

This is my last week working.
The part-time return to my old job has been fun...
and it was perfect timing.

A return to my pre-mommy time - different brain parts required.
A little extra income for baby Deedle things.
And a reminder as to how complicated working an hour from home can be.

Another fun things about work...
there is room to do belly-photo shots in the bathroom.

I can't believe I am 36 weeks pregnant.
And then I look down at my swollen ankles...
today is the first day they have swelled... how fitting.

From the front - I am not so impressive...
then I turn sideways.
That is when the comments come.

You must be due any day.
You will never make it to July.
Look at that watermelon belly.

Deedle is sticking way out there.
I had to move the seat back in the car...
I even had to back the car out of the garage and repark the other day.
I was too close on my side in the garage and couldn't squeeze out.

Dear Deedle,

You are moving like crazy.
Body parts are poking and jutting out.

You almost scared the grocery cashier to death the other day.
 You completed one of your high kick round-house moves...
he went ghostly pale and jumped back away from the counter.
I thought he was going to faint...
"Is it coming out... are you okay?"

One more week and I am giving you the green light...
head on this way when ever you are ready.
We can't wait to meet you.

I have been getting things ready for you.
There are piles of clean clothes and diapers.
Bags are out and I even have a few things packed.

Next week is my crunch time.
I have list of to-do's and I am ready to get them checked off.

See you soon.
Love Mommy
