5.5 more weeks

You know it's getting close when...

....you drop something on the floor and truly spend time contemplating whether it's worth picking it up

....you visit the restroom every hour, or less

....you find getting in and out of the bathroom stalls really complicated because your belly keeps getting in the way

....you make grunting sounds when trying to get in or out of your husband's Honda Civic.  The sounds are really similar to the ones your horse made when she was stuck on her back in a blizzard drift after rolling around around in the snow

....you now feel really bad for standing there laughing at the horse

....you despise the very site of that stupid, way-too-low-to-the-ground Honda Civic, but since the AC is broken in your car, you have to deal with it

....strangers say, "You're all baby!  It must be getting close!"

....you can't really fit a 2.5 year old on your lap anymore

....getting out of bed or off the couch closely resembles the movements of a walrus

....you have no clothes left that fit (Ok, confession:  The only actual maternity clothes I've gotten are two pairs of maternity jeans.  I also bought a few tank tops in a size larger.  With everything else I've been getting by because so many styles, like maxi dresses, can fit extra belly!)

....you find your cat sound asleep in a moses basket

....you can't think about anything else but the baby

  2. You're too cute, Taylor! I remember sitting in L's nursery and just daydreaming for hours about what she would look like, how she would act, the things she'd like, etc. Hard to believe that was more than a year ago! Cherish these precious weeks:).
