Finally an update!!!
I haven't blogged for a while, so here is a rough update of what we've been up to for the past bit!



Growing...I hesitate putting this picture on because I am no longer in that super cute pregnancy stage where you look like you have half a basketball attached to your mid-section, but...oh well...here I am in all my "glory", at nearly 37 weeks! I did a dumb thing the other day actually. I've been able to work out my whole pregnancy, so I thought that surely I would still be able to fit into my skinny non-maternity jeans. Of course I knew that there would be no way I would be able to button them...I'm not that stupid but I did think that they would fit around my legs. HA! I don't think I have ever been so far off on thinking I could do something when in reality I really can't! Whoops! Next time I'll know not to try them on until AFTER the baby comes. Duh! (For anyone who doesn't think "Pregnancy Brain" is a real disorder- you might think again!)
Running...Josh ran the San Jose Half Marathon (Oct. 5) and did good...again. He ended up taking 6th, with a time of 1:02:45. He has been training for the New York City Marathon which is November 2nd. Remember how I'm due October 28th? Ya...it's sort a problem, so we're praying mightily that we'll have the baby early. If not, Josh just won't do the marathon, but there's money to be had and it would be GREAT if he could do it. I'm going to have to start doing jumping jax if it gets close and our little guy still isn't here.
Organizing...I have been in this organizing mode the past few weeks and all I want to do is tear down everything in our house, just to re-organize it and make it look better because I know that once the baby comes I won't really have time (or energy...or desire) to do any of it.

You only have 20 days left, how crazy. Its so exciting that your almost done. Good luck in the next couple of weeks, oh and you look so cute. I wish I had looked that good pregnant, I was like a giant balloon.

Jena,
You are adorable. Oh, and a sad reality. You may not want to try those pants on even after having the baby for awhile. It takes the body awhile to shrink down again. I am sure you will look great afterwards, but even still, that old uterus has to contract.
