birthday belly

it’s official.  i will not share a birthday with my child.  but, because i was not in labor or tending to a newborn, i did get to enjoy a quiet, lovely day that included a delicious breakfast made by ned (blueberry muffins! roasted potatoes!), a one-year-old’s birthday party, sitting in the shade by a lake, a massage, a great dinner out and a long phone call with my sister.  i also got to enjoy toting this belly around at least one more day.38 weeks

we will not have a pre-term baby.  but there is still a chance i could have my first child at the tender age of 31.  although i’m fine with giving birth at 32, too.

baby does cambridge

here i am at 35 weeks, on the other side of the country, flashing my belly to passers-by in cambridge, massachusetts.  luckily, zipper behaved and didn’t make an appearance while we weren’t in seattle.  we’re home safe and sound, ready to work on crossing the final (many many) things off the to-do list.  one month to go…35 weeks
