38 and a half

The day before James arrived Paul snapped a picture of me in a new maternity dress I'd run across and it ended up being one of my favorite bump photos. 

It isn't quite the night before the baby is going to arrive (five more days!) but I ran across the dress in the closet and I thought I'd see how this time around compared with last time.  Because right now I'm feeling like my baby bump is pretty gigantic:

But it turns out that this time isn't all that different from last time (the top row shows the photos from 2014):

And I think I'll make my official baby size prediction. 

All of the other kids were either 21 or 22 inches.  And their weights were (in order): 9 lbs 4 oz, 9 lbs 1 oz, 8 lbs 12 1/2 oz, and 8 lbs 7 oz. 

So my guess for this baby will be 21 inches and 8 lbs 2 ounces. 

Baby should be arriving in less than a week! 

And the days seem to be somehow flying by and moving incredibly slowly depending on the moment, probably because I can't wait to meet her! 


  1. I think your belly looks bigger this time! Can I place a bet? 22in and 9lbs 1oz.

  2. I'm going with 21" and 9lbs even.


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
