Would you look at that--three more weeks to go. S. is officially and totally, no-turning-back-now full term pregnant. Oh my goodness. And, it is officially S.'s last day of school as well. Hip hip HOORAY! I still have until Monday, but the kids are gone so I am feeling gooood...

This week we did many important "hey, the baby could come at any second now" things around the house and outside, including setting up the co-sleeper and having our car seat bases installed. One of the parents in S.'s school is a police officer and safety technician, so he offered to do it for us. It's kind of freaky riding around with that thing in the back seat, and to think soon there will be a squirmy-wormy thing sitting in it soon. It's all a little much and I think it's finally dawned on us--we are HAVING A BABY!

I felt similarly about riding around with an installed car seat. It really hit home to me that we'd soon have a baby... for real.

I also remember the relief of hitting 37 weeks... the feeling like, well, I could have the baby any time and it'd be ok. The baby would be full term and all that. (Jo didn't come until 41 weeks, but it was nice to know we'd passed the point of a potentially long NICU stay.)

So excited for both of you.

So exciting.

Congrats on your squirmy-wormy thing! I had a friend who was adopting a baby and rode around with the car seat in the back . .said it helped her start to remember to be sure she actually checked the car seat before leaving the car!!
