37 weeks, 6 days

More lounging and reading!

Elijah has been such an incredibly good boy lately. The behaviors that were about to drive us crazy a few months ago have lessened a lot. I have found myself feeling sad for him lately because soon his world is going to be seriously rocked. I know this is a very happy thing and getting a sibling is an amazing gift, but I can't help but feel a little bit bad for him at the same time.

I'm getting more convinced that our prayers will be answered and that we will indeed have a 39-week baby. It is what I have been praying for all along, so maybe God is just going right ahead and answering that prayer! My c-section is scheduled for next Friday, June 4th, so that is the longest we will have to wait to meet Not-Zooter. Whenever it happens, I can't wait to meet him!

By the way, we have no idea what we are naming this child. Dan and I have had some disagreements about a few names and we just cannot come to a final decision. Maybe we will end up putting "Zooter" on the birth certificate after all. :)

Maybe you have to wait to see his little face to decide what his name will be. :)
Nothing wrong with that. Also Zooter would be a cute name, just my opinion. LOL
sue from work!

He looks so cute reading that book. I am so excited for you, you are almost there. I know how you feel about being a little sad for Elijah I was the same way with the girls. For Six years it was just them two and they got all the attention and when Logan came into the world everything changed he took up a lot of our time. But I try really hard to make them feel special at the same time. It is not easy. But I tell them every day how much I love them and take them out a few times a month us girls go out for the day and have fun. Lots of hugs

Have a fun weekend :)
