the final countdown

36 weeks

Four weeks (or so) until we meet our  Little Dragon Lady. (It's official now--Happy New Year!)

This pregnancy HAS FLOWN by. All of a sudden, I'm in the final stretch...the final month. The nesting is starting to kick in now...the downstairs Changing Station is up and ready for some midday diaper changes and, hopefully, naps. The carseat, bouncy chair, and swing covers are washed and ready. (And we've been prepping Evan for his imminent move to the Back Seat of the van.) I've been stocking up on shampoo, lotion, toilet paper, diapers, and chicken nuggets because, you know, I might never leave the house again once Molly is here.

Even though this pregnancy has lacked the photo documentation that Evan's had (and even Max's, to a lesser extent), I have been remembering, every once in awhile, to take those Baby Book Essentials: Belly Pictures.

Baby Molly: 36 weeks

I may not be taking pictures every four weeks, but, you lucky little girl, your big brothers NEVER had photos like these:

Big Brother Evan: 36 weeks

Big Brother Max: 36 weeks


Lesson Learned:
And, in line with having fewer pictures...a preemptive apology: Molly, if you don't show up in the home videos until you're three and a half, don't worry....you've been here all along--despite what your taunting big brothers may say.


  1. You look amazing, as always! And nothing makes me happier than thinking of you with a "Molly."
