10 Days Left! (okay, probably more like 17 left, but a girl can wish, right?)

This pregnancy has been quite a ride and I am oh-so looking forward to the prize of a darling baby at the end.
The comments people have given me vary quite a bit and often leave me wondering if they have not had any exposure to a pregnant lady

Some of the best (worst) ones:
When are you due--yesterday? You look like you are ready to pop!

Your belly is so huge! (To which i thought, well, yes, seeing as I am over 8 months pregnant i would imagine it would be on the large side. Thanks so much for pointing that out)

You must be having a boy, you are carrying really low! (I get this one surprisingly often, and typically from older women. When I tell them I am having a girl a few have asked if I am sure and that I should have my doctor check again.)

What are you going to do if you have your baby right now? Like, right now? I have my permit--I could drive you to the hospital! (from a well-meaning 15-year-old that is friends with the girls I nanny)

What were you thinking being pregnant in Texas in August? Have you heard that this is one of the hottest summers on record?

But for all of those, I get the kind comments from other mothers/my sweet husband that I look great. So thanks to all of you! Hopefully she will come join us soon but I am not holding my breath.

On a funny note, Peter had to get his blood drawn at our apartment this evening for insurance purposes. And as we know, Peter does not do well with needles. I snuck this picture of him right after he got his blood drawn with his head between his knees to keep from passing out.

and here is me and the cat laughing at him
