Momma and baby
Today is picture day (and he was about to get his pants changed)
Now he's MAD at his Daddy - get used to it kid!
For a look at the pictures go to http://www.our365.com/ and search for us in the search for newborn portraits section (first three characters LIV, Allen, TX). Hope you enjoy them.
Oops I made him mad again.

Today is the last day that I will look like this. No, there are not two in there. I was on the fence on whether or not to take this picture but Kevin thinks at some point I will want to look back and remember. I'm not so sure. I didn't know it was possible to defy gravity in this way.
The good news is tomorrow at 5:30 am, I get admitted to the hospital to evict Ethan. :) I love him and can't want to meet him but being pregnant is not fun! I didn't know it was possible to have so many aches and pains. It is probably more my fault for gaining more weight than my doctor wanted but I figured there are not many times in your life where you can eat whatever you want and no one can say anything! I'm going to pay of that on the treadmill in the coming months but the ice cream was worth it.
I'm sure next week, I will have a different opinion but right now I am ready to be a mom and not that huge pregnant woman!

I have resigned myself to the fact that there is no way for me to get this baby out without the doctor's help. I have tried everything, exept for the things Kevin will not let me try (castor oil, rasberry leaf tea). I actually got on the treadmill since my doctor said walking would help speed things along. I looked up labor inducing pressure points and used them but they just gave me contractions and no baby. Apparently, Ethan wants to start his life being stubborn. Not so surprising given his genes.
It seems very strange that in less than a week, we will have a baby. I am happy to have this last weekend to do some more cleaning and eat some more not-so-healthy food. As Kevin continues to remind me, I can only do for 6 more days then I get to go back to dieting. It has been nice to not have to be concerned about the number of calories, just giving the baby what he wants :)
Hopefully soon I will have baby pictures to post!
