Waitin' on Sprout: Fourth and inches

38 week summary:
142 pounds
41 inches around
Tired. Grumpy. 
And not in labor.

The end is nearly in sight. It's so close I can feel it. (Literally. It feels kind of like a big old baby hanging out in my pelvis.)

We're ready for you, little man. Whenever you decide to join us, we're ready.

Nope, there's no nursery waiting for you. (The closet was good enough for your brother. That will have to do for now.) Our bags are only halfheartedly packed. And we're still not totally set on a name yet. (Your older siblings are...but Mommy and Daddy are having commitment issues. If push comes to shove, we'll just let them name you.)

But look! Mommy made t-shirts for everyone! Surely that means you can make your big debut now, right?

In other news, it's supposed to be 108 degrees this weekend. I'm developing a new appreciation for those winter babies of mine. Not that I want to make another drive to the hospital in the middle of the night in a sleet storm. But stepping outside into some crisp cool air is sounding awfully good right now.


  1. Love the t-shirts - I totally relate to the half hearted packing and name non-commitments. Praying for yall!

  2. I am still slightly annoyed at your 142 pounds on the ninth month of your fourth pregnancy! :) Can't wait to see him and learn his name!
