34 Weeks

Surprise, surprise...this baby is in the 67th percentile according to my ultrasound today. It isn't huge...just my belly is huge.
I've been doing my best to "take it easy." It isn't easy.
If only Dan got my face in this photo! You would see I'm making fun of these photos. You know...the photos that are either too cute or weird or sexy or psycho all centered around a pregnant belly. Don't know what I'm talking about? GO HERE. My favorites are the watermelon and gun photo and the beach ball photos that an awesome adoptive family took.
Here is another "on my belly shot." The baby's quilt. Now, all that is left, is the peaceful hand stitching of the binding.
This baby is threatening to come early. The short story is...12 contractions an hour, short hospital stay, dilating to 2/3, and some medicine to stop the contractions. Rest assure...all is well with tiny baby Lapour and it's Mama. I'll just be taking advantage of the situation. I'll accept all food offers (thank you to Lori for saving the day and my sanity) and all other offers that will let me just sit on the couch and finish that quilt.

I wonder if we could bring something by on Sunday. I will call you.

Your belly is just....way way out there. It's a little pointy, right? Whatever, it is beautiful, Autumn. I love the blanket. Can we see a pic of the whole thing? I really love it. Blessings on littlest Lapour.

WOW you look fantastic. But I must admit little Lapour looks like her head is in and her feet are pointed out. Crazy.
I loved Alana & Xander's photos too. (but love the kids more...they are from Sam's orphanage too.)
Crossing fingers and toes you get to "cook" another couple of weeks and/or until everyone is ready for little Lapour to meet the world.

Look at how cute you are!

You look adorable, Autumn! Really, really great! Yes, the heart shape over the belly - a classic.

I don't think I ever mentioned this, but early on, right after you announced your pregnancy, I woke up from a nap convinced you were going to name the baby Runner. So, there's that.

I'm still saying a girl and it looks like she is in a diving position, poised and ready for the right time. . . The human body (your human body) is amazing. . . I'm glad to see your face in one of these photos, thank you Dan. You look very happy and healthy. I also loved the heart. . . TAKE IT EASY. Love to all.
