34 weeks 5 days

Morning baby love,

Whew! It's hot out here on the outside! You are going to be arriving in one of the hottest summers Kentucky has had for awhile. Good thing mommy and daddy have you lots of cool onesies and a delightful Air Conditioned house for you to live in!

It's not much longer now. One month from today your Mum-Mum will be arriving to help mommy get everything ready for you to come. She says to make sure you don't come before she gets there, so I hope you listen to her! LOL! I think July is going to go pretty fast because I'm spending most of the month just getting ready for your arrival. Daddy is going to be getting out the baby things next weekend so we can get your bed set up and your carseat and stroller cleaned up. Mommy still needs to buy a new diaper bag which she's going to be looking for here shortly. Your daddy requested that it be black so he feels "comfortable" carrying it. Silly daddy.

Mommy is tired all the time and has to put her feet up throughout the day. And do you even realise how much water mommy is drinking? 60-80 ounces a day! That's more water than mommy usually drinks over a course of 2 or 3 days!

We find out on Monday how mommy's sugar is for the month. I'm really hoping that this new diet mommy is on has lowered my sugar counts. I know it has helped me keep off the excess weight. In fact, they got on mommy at her appointment last week because your mommy had LOST two pounds in one week. But baby, when your mommy is just eating nice cool things like sandwiches, salads, fruit and veggies, it's hard to gain weight! LOL! Yesterday I enjoyed a delightful snack of strawberries and yogurt. Yummy!

Well, I need to go do some things around the house and start drinking my water!

Loving you always and forever,

Dearest Justin,

Well love the countdown continues. Every day mommy gets more and more anxious for your arrival. This goes into overdrive when I come across adoreable new babies when I go shopping! They are so cute, but I know that you will be even MORE ADOREABLE because you will be ours.

Everytime I go shopping I always have people asking me when I'm due and it never fails...when I tell them August 3rd, their eyes bug out and they look at my belly and assure me that "you won't make it to August my dear." Don't they realise that the 3rd of August is just three measly days into the month? It's not like I said "August 23rd" or something. Naturally, I just smile and nod and hope that they are right. But seriously. It's getting old. And the staring at my belly? Small children look at me like I've got an alien growing inside. It's discomforting to say the least! LOL!

But I gladly put up with it because I know that I'm in love with my little "alien" inside of me. You are definitely making your presence known as you stretch and push. I think it's interseting that you've been a stretcher rather than a kicker. Your big brother was a kicker! He was like a jack rabbit inside! But you do it much more calmly...I hope that's a sign of your personality! LOL!

Well, it's going to be another scorcher, so mommy is just going to take it easy again today. Lots of resting and lots of water! Did you know our doctor wants me to drink at least 80 ounces of fluid a day??? That's a lot of liquid! But when it's this hot, it's really not that hard to do.

I love you forever and always!

Dear Justin,

Well, my love we are soooo close to being done I can almost taste it! We've hit our 8 month mark and are almost home free! I do prefer you remain in your current status for about 6 more weeks though please. Once your Mum-mum arrives on July 27th you are more than welcome to get the show on the road! Actually (don't tell her I said this) I wouldn't mind it, if you came even a few days earlier! LOL! But it would be much more convenient for you to wait...of course, since when is having a baby convenient?

At our last checkup, they told me that you weigh about 5 lbs 4 oz right now. A good size considering you still have 7 weeks until your due date! It's your head that worries me, my love. 3 weeks ahead? Must you have a large head? It would make mommy VERY happy if the rest of you would catch up to your head and your head just stay a nice steady under 14 cm. That is what your brother's head measured. His head was big enough. LOL!

It's hot and humid out here. Your clothing when you arrive is going to be very simple. Just diapers and onesies! Gotta keep you cool! It will be a bit different having a summer baby this time around. Your brother was a winter baby. But summertime just means I get to see your little chubby legs all the time and give them smooches!

Here is our monthly belly shot:

Take care and keep on growing like you should. Mommy loves you and we can't wait to make your acquaintance in a few more weeks!

Always and forever,
