Single Digits

In weeks of pregnancy that is.  I'm 31 weeks today, and that means only 9 weeks left of waddling.  I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I hate pictures of myself.  Don't we all, but today is momentous for me so I had Meilani snap a quick pic before she went to bed.  This pregnancy has been rough, in comparison to my previous ones anyway.  Last week I even spent a few hours in the hospital feeling like I was in labor.  Turns out dehydration can bring on pretty intense contractions.  I'm super thankful this baby didn't come just yet, but I am looking forward to my hips residing in the same hemisphere again soon.  I guess my innards are pretty well stretched out at this point!  I know many women who have it much worse off than I do, so I don't mean for this to be a complaint post.  I'm just thrilled to celebrate my impending de-pregnant-ization.  Yesterday, when it was still August, we went to Costco and I saw Christmas (and Halloween) stuff on the shelves.  It was like a beacon of light!  If Christmas is right around the corner (humor me) then November 3rd will be here before we know it!  I can't wait to meet this little squirmy boy!

Danelley! You look FABULOUS!!!! Seriously! And now comes the ever so fun comments..."you look like you're ready to pop" or "you haven't had that baby yet?" I just love people!! I can't wait to start looking preggo instead of the "Sarah is letting herself go" look I'm sprouting now!! Hang in there!!!

You are beautiful, Danelle! I'm so excited for you and the family. You are truly an inspiration to me and I can't wait to watch you become a mamma of 6!!! When life gets a bit rocky, I always think "Danelle can do this with a smile, cute hair AND five kids...I can get through this with a grin, a pony-tail and 3 kids" Thanks for being there, dear friend :-)

Ahhhh...you look so cute! I'm glad you posted a picture of you. We get to see lots of pictures of everyone else - I love seeing pictures of you too. I still can't believe this is #6! I'm excited for him to come in 9 more weeks. Tell everyone I say Hi!
