Waiting for the pot to boil

We're still waiting around over here for our little one to decide to make his grand entrance into the world. In the meantime, our new deck furniture arrived yesterday....yay! Perhaps this is what the lil' guy has been waiting for...a decent place to have a sandwich on the deck for lunch...

The table is teak and the chairs are teak, mesh and aluminum. We purchased four chairs for now, and will get four more when the financial timing is right.

Additionally, to celebrate the first sunny, warm days of summer (since, if you hadn't heard, New England has had something around 48 straight days of rain)...we spent some time over at the neighbors' pool yesterday. Ahhhh...nothing like a pool owned by someone else to get your spirits up!!

And while this may seem like an incredibly uncomfortable position, I actually fell asleep like this for a few minutes and really, REALLY enjoyed my weighlessness for a while.

Later on in the day we decided perhaps we should pack our bag for the hospital...but no sooner had we put the bag down and the kitty decided that perhaps we shouldn't pack the bag for the hospital. No worries, crisis averted...we are bigger than her, you know.

And finally, we took (what we hope are) our last set of belly shots. It is unfathomable to me how big my stomach is!!

So there you go...hopefully we will have a baby soon and won't have to sit around coming up with activities to keep ourselves occupied!!


  1. Glad you got a chance to sleep on your stomach!

  2. That pool position is priceless. You look soooo comfortable...glad you were able to get some much-needed R&R!

  3. That actually does look comfy to me! Hope your labor & delivery goes super smoothly! :)

  4. I am totally jealous of your gorgeous pool! I was thinking about you the other day and wondering if it was baby time yet. Good luck with everything!

    (and what is it with cats and packing themselves in your bag or laying on your clean clothes?)

  5. That pool must not have been nearly as cold as when I was there or else it would have SHOCKED the munchkin out of you.

    Also your belly... admittedly I am praying someone says something stupid to you giving an opening for you to say, "Yes, and I'm only 3 months along. Should I be worried?"

  6. Wow...you look SO amazing -- your legs look so super skinny in the pool pic (and it DOES look like a comfy position in the pool).

    I'm so excited for you kids! :-)

  7. Best wishes for a smooth delivery!

  8. Lucky July babies get pool time. All I got was snow :P

    I love your soon-to-be mama smile, and that belly. Soon, soon, soon!

    Oh, and the furniture is nice too :)

  9. yay! I'm glad to have found you again, and so glad you have a new little person coming soon!

  10. We're sooo in the same boat, lady! I concur with the magic of water therapy- I think I stayed in a similar position in the pool when we had our babymoon till my back got burned :P Good luck to both of us!

  11. And here I was thinking, wouldn't it be cool if this was the last post before the baby arrived? So cool!
