popsicles, burpies, and...huge

Here's a look at my day today.

Gotta love popsicles in the summer.

And remember the etsy burpies? Here are my own version. Finally, the last thing I wanted to get done for the baby! BRING HIM ON!!!...

...Because I am super duper HUGE! I don't care what anyone says. This is the biggest, most stretched, most miserable/uncomfortable I have ever been with a pregnancy (and the baby is measuring much bigger than my other two were at this point). I went out to eat the other night, and my server asked if I was having twins. Honestly, I take that as a "compliment." Thank you for acknowledging how huge I am.
I did have to photoshop myself a little before I showed myself to the world. Gotta love a little skin softening. Heaven knows I need it! If only I could photoshop myself in real life!! I still don't think these pictures do my hugeness justice. Am I embarrassed about showing my bare belly? Not really. All complaints aside, I do think pregnancy is an amazing and beautiful thing.

If you are still reading, here is the GOOD NEWS: the date has been set. I went in to the doc yesterday, and was quite progressed; however, as with my other two, I know that pretty much means nothing for me. It has always taken an induction to start the real labor. Let's just say my days are numbered now to the single digits!

And Russ honey, if you read this, I am excited to be able to hug you again soon, too :)

Hey, don't be embarrassed to show off the belly. You look great and I saw you the other day and don't think you look like you are having twins. You look a lot smaller than I did. Can't wait to see him, maybe he will be here before we get back from Bear Lake!

You are cute Emily! I remember thinking the same thing about being able to give a hug again. It's nice when you don't have a bump in the way!
By the way, Love your gray walls! What color is it?

You are all baby! You really do look great! Congrats, on setting the date, I think it always makes you feel better to have an end in sight.

I absolutely LOVE the burp cloths you made; thanks for making me some! I can't believe you are in the single digits! I am so excited to see Coy, and excited for you to be back to your normal self. I love being able to bend over and get up from the couch. Let me know if I can come see you at the hospital!

You look BEAUTIFUL! I love pregnant bellies, and yours is so cute! I know how you feel about hugging. After I had Jake, it was so nice to hug Gary again. I also love the burp cloths. (Way cute).
