D-day is Coming!

To the few faithful readers who have asked for an update, I am happy to inform you that our little baby is growing just as he should (as far as can be seen from ultrasounds anyway) and is a very active little boy. He likes to move around for a good portion of each day and does his best to interfere with his mom's exercise. (Almost every time I start doing some kind of exercising he starts punching or kicking me, making it very difficult to exercise.) Someone pointed out to me that he may just be joining in and trying to get his exercise at the same time, in which case I suppose I can't fault him.

We are planning on calling him Christopher James. That may change when we actually see him, but that's the plan for now. We look forward to welcoming him into the world in the next five weeks, give or take a few. I will try to post pictures sometime soon after he is born, but I make no promise of further blog postings prior to that. And for those of you hoping to see a picture of me and my huge belly, too bad. If you haven't seen it in person, you'll just have to miss out. It's too depressing to see pictures of myself at this stage. When I'm looking in the mirror I can still believe I'm cute, but the pictures just make me look like a bloated walrus and I can't take that.

Oh darn. Guess I'll just have to miss out seeing my cutely pregnant cousin. :) Oh well, I totally understand. And lest you despair: Having a new baby AND your own body back is a marvelous combination. Good luck waiting it out!

Christopher James sounds like a great name! Looking forward to seeing pictures of the little guy--and hopefully I'll see you at the end of the month!

Cute little baby there! I am so proud of you. I think carrying mothers glow and are beautiful. I wish I could see you. Good luck with your birthing experience! You will be in my prayers. Don't forget to ask for a blessing! Matt.

Finally a new post! Just kidding. :) I know what you mean about pregnant pictures--they just don't quite do our beautiful bodies justice... :)

Christopher James has a very nice ring to it. I like it. I've never had any of my babies' names picked out before they were born. It sure would make things easier. Anyway, glad all is well, and I'll see you soon!

Hi Liz! I've been meaning to leave you a comment here for a while. I'm glad things are going smoothly with your pregnancy. I was so excited when I read in your Christmas letter that you are going to have a home birth. I really wanted to do that with my last baby but Ben was worried about safety and cost. I'd love to talk to you about it!
