This week our sweet baby girl...

Our baby, now as hefty as a honeydew melon at 5 1/4 pounds, doesn't have much room to maneuver in my belly. (Length: more than 18 inches, head to heel.)

Next week I get to have another sonogram. I haven't had one since 18 weeks when we found out that we were having a girl. I hope that is still the case! By then I will be 36 1/2 weeks along, so if she hasn't flipped by then I think that my doctor will start discussing with us our options.

May the swelling begin! My wedding band and engagement ring officially DO NOT FIT anymore. I haven't been wearing them for a while because I don't want to chance swelling during the day and having to get them cut off, but now they just don't fit at all. Cross your fingers that the swelling stays far, far away from my face and my butt.

On another note - or kinda the same note since it has to do with babies - I visited my friend Jennifer at the hospital last night. Her daughter, Caroline Grace was born on Friday. She was 3 weeks and 2 days early, so she is hanging out in the NICU until she can eat on her own. Other than that, she is beautiful and doing fine. I have pictures of Freddy and I with the proud parents and big sister that I will post later, but none of Caroline because cameras aren't allowed in the NICU.

Melanie and Amie - if you are reading this, they are at your hospital so check in on sweet Caroline if you get a chance. Thanks! Oh, and if you can sneak Caroline to the window so that big sister Cassidy could see her, I bet she would love that. Right now she is wearing out the limited video footage that they have of her.

Hi Cheryl! I met miss Caroline at work today and got her a bow! :) I sure hope your little miss gets into position for you--keep us posted! Agree with Katie--enjoy your last month before she arrives! (you may hardly remember life before her once she's here!)

I hope she flips Cheryl! I bet she will be a good little girl and flip for you right before it's time for her to come out :)
