This is it...at 40 weeks plus 4 days. My doctor decided today that
Isaac is fully baked and had better not wait to come out. We were going

Here we are at 35 weeks. Two acquaintances in the past two
days have failed to recognize me so I must be getting bigger. I also seem
to have developed freckles sometime during the night of Oct. 1. I went to
bed with my 26 year old face and woke-up in a time warp with my 6 year old

actually molesting the child as we'd always supposed, b) the woman is
holding an apple so it must be Adam, Eve and one of their kids, c) they
are waaay bigger than life size!

Baby Isaac at 29 weeks, visiting Daddy's office. Wendy can absolutely
not buckle these sandals anymore! Of course, it may just be the sandals
not the belly...Craig had trouble getting them buckled, too.
Practicing the cross-cradle hold at breastfeeding class. Many thanks to
BooBoo the vegetarian monster for his patience. He made it through two
classes. Craig only made it through one. Of course, if Craig had gotten to
be involved in cross-cradle holding, maybe he would have come back for the
