where did february go?!

week 20

week 29

week 34

leon's 3rd birthday at preschool

it's funny how spring break has truly become catching up week. i owe a lot of people emails, but as the weeks go by, it's getting harder to concentrate on anything that isn't related to work or preparing for the baby. 5 weeks to go, and i hope it's at least 5 weeks because there are so many things left to do. i'm operating on a skeleton wardrobe these days. j brand maternity jeans, park vogel sweater, jcrew extra-long hoodie, uggs, mocs, and aigle rainboots (the only shoes that still fit). i'm just happy that i survived the worst of winter without having to buy a new parka or boots. thankfully i have one dress i can wear while teaching because my due date is the last day of class!

just for reference, this was me at week 37 with leon. i can't believe how long my hair was...

5 more weeks! Wow! Good luck finishing everything before the new baby comes. I can't believe your due date is the last day of class...talk about good timing!

Jade said...

been wondering if you'd had your new babe! love the updates, and the way the background changes in conjunction with your belly in the photos. good luck with the end of school shuffle and getting it all done before this kid arrives!

5 weeks seems like a long time to me right now, maybe because every day is going to have to count!

knock on wood, the timing is pretty much perfect...

i love these time lapse photos of your belly, and i can't believe how grown-up leon looks!

You look fabulous, Erica!! Our baby is due this Thursday, and we've been feeling like every day is a gift to still be just the two of us, at the same time that we can't wait to meet this little person we created. I hear you on the no shoes that fit--I lost my ankles a couple of months ago and am down to a pair of Uggs and gym sneakers. That and the heartburn are the two things I will not miss about pregnancy; otherwise, this entire experience has just been extraordinary and I know I will miss the feeling of our baby moving inside. Best of luck and good wishes in the coming weeks!!

You have the cutest pregnant belly, I twice looked like a balloon. I also recall being able to wear my aigle boots and uggs only for the 3rd trimester. Best wishes.

Good luck with finishing everything, and thanks again for the sage advice! You look great.

kristien--good luck with the final days before your baby arrives. we just assembled the crib and i had a freakout moment thinking that the baby was missing! baby movements, no matter how "Alien" like, are awesome.

the swollen feet (and face), i definitely won't miss, however!

looking good mama. It is always amazing how 9 months flys by.

good luck, erica! hope the next few weeks go by smoothly!

Thank you so much, Erica!! I definitely am struck with baby brain right now...our baby is overdue, and I have basically set up camp on our couch. If I need to remember something, I have to write it down, and I find myself doing ridiculous things like putting flour in our sugar bowl and just being generally spacy. It's been quite an adventure!! All the best to you and your family. I can't wait to see pictures of your new baby boy, and hope Leon adores his little brother.
