This Post is Going to be So Full of Baby Stuff Even the Most Unsentimental of You May Feel Your Bott

First, a big fat apology for being so crappy about updating this blog as of late. I’ve been caught up in end of term paper writing/ grading, and while it is very much in my nature to procrastinate during times of impending deadlines, I am happy to say I was quite faithful to my school work and finished it with minimal stress. So now on to more exciting ventures. Like possibly HAVING A BABY IN TWO WEEKS. (big gasp for air).

I’m still feeling quite well, however. I fear I may be pregnant for a good six or seven more years in fact. I can see the front page of the papers now: “Columbia Grad Student Gives Birth to Seven-Year-Old Boy. “I like steak and basketball,” boy says upon arrival.” Every day I sit attentive waiting to feel some symptom, some sign that labor is on the horizon. I’ve got nothing, folks. But I am starting to get a little achey around the edges. And there were sightings of me on the roof of our building during the last full moon, praying to the fertility gods. If that won’t do the trick, I don’t know what will.

Here are some pictures of me at 37 weeks:

The big news is that we are finally getting ready! We have packed a hospital bag; we have purchased THINGS and are joyfully receiving THINGS from our loved ones. We are so set for this little guy. This weekend, Grant and Amy arrived with tools in hand and helped us put together a changing table and set up the baby’s room. You can find pictures of the weekend in our gallery.

Speaking of the gallery, many o’ pictures have recently been uploaded. Check out the new albums: my parents’ visit last weekend, the surprise baby shower my sweet girlfriends threw for me, my friend Jo’s birthday party (not baby-related for those of you starting to feel a little overwhelmed with all of it), and updated belly shots (if you haven’t had enough of the baby stuff).

Finally, I will leave you with pictures of Jack in utero at 33 weeks. We were able to have 3D pictures taken of him. He stubbornly has his arm up by his face in every picture we took, but I think you can still get a decent glimpse of him, smushed nose and all. If you click here, you can see a little video as well. He’s yawning. Don’t be scared if it looks all gelatinous at first; every now and then his face will really show up.
