Okay, so I understand that this post is WAY past due as our little man is here, safe and sound and sleeping tightly in my arms, but in the sake of this being a way to document my journey [and a great keepsake for years to come] I feel that I need to share this.
I wrote it and took the pictures the day before I went into labor and just got too busy to post [labor will do that to you!]. I also know that not too many woman can say that they made it to 41 weeks pregnant! A small milestone that I remember being annoyed at reaching ;)

at forty-one weeks:
::i am feeling anxious, nervous, and weirdly proud for reaching this new milestone. 41 weeks! not many women can say that!
::i am however, ready to meet this little person inside of me and see what creation peter and i made. he/she is loved beyond words already and it's about time we get to show it that.
::i am still getting a million little hiccups.
::i'm kinda feeling like a whale. i just know that this extra week has added a couple extra pounds to the ol' belly. thanks child of mine.
::i am craving chocolate milk and apple juice.
::i haven't changed out of leggings for the past week. not to worry, however, they have been washed.
::my doc mentioned that baby should apparently be around 7 to 7.5 lbs in size. this i can handle.
::my belly button has officially 'popped' and has been like this for a few weeks. i also think it's kinda cute.
::i am upset that i may have to get induced tomorrow, but like i mentioned above, very excited to meet the little one. i only hope everything progresses smoothly from here on in.
For those of you who don't think in terms of weeks...this works out to 10 months + 1 week pregnant. Meaning I am currently 1 week overdue!
