i just received this email from

"Congratulations! Your baby is full-term! This means that if your baby arrives now, his lungs should be fully mature and ready to adjust to life outside the womb, even though your due date is still three weeks away. He weighs 6 1/3 pounds and measures a bit over 19 inches, head to heel (like a stalk of Swiss chard). Many babies have a full head of hair at birth, with locks from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches long."


how crazy is that?? this little guy can join us at any moment, and everything will be ok. i'm feeling a little overwhelmed by it all--i feel like this pregnancy has just FLOWN by. but i'm also feeling extremely excited. i can't wait to kiss his little hands and feet and see his beautiful face for the first time.
