35 weeks

I meant to take a 32 or 34 week picture and it never happened. So, here we are at 35 weeks instead. I had a doctor appointment this morning and everything is looking great. Praise God! It is hard to believe that there are only five weeks left until we meet our third precious baby. When I think of 5 weeks of waddling and being uncomfortable (I am getting huge!) it sounds like a long time. But when I think of 5 weeks to get ready for a new little one in our house and big changes, I know it will fly by. So we are trying to soak up these last five weeks of just the three of us and prepare our hearts to have two little boys in our house.

We are making some progress on Baby Brother's room. The crib is sanded and this week we are hoping to get it painted. We like to work on projects up to the very last minute!

We are making progress on Baby Brother's name too. I think we have it narrowed down to two or three. That is good for us. At least it is looking like he will have a name by the time he is born. I guess we like to work on baby naming up until the last minute too.

I could barely pull that shirt over my big belly for this picture, so hopefully I can squeeze it on one more time for a 39 or 40 week picture. We'll soon find out. Here are a few behind the scenes shots for our little 35 week photo shoot today. Enjoy!

(Ooops! I don't know how this one got on here.
Sorry Joel. Your baby bump was just too cute!)

That picture of Joel = hilarious!

How far apart will the babies be in age? (I'm too lazy to do the math...)

You still look awesome!

You look great! I'm 36 and 1/2 weeks now and have the same kind of outlook as you. In some ways it seems to be a long time to wait and be uncomfortable, but in other ways we better hurry up and get ready! I'll be thinking about and praying for ya'll as you get ready to meet your 2nd baby boy.

Cute pics! I especially love the second to the last one where Levi has his back and is "writing." I think it would be really cool to do the same picture but have all the baby's arrival stats, including name, when he gets here!

That last picture of Levi on the chair is I think my favourite pic on your blog ever. Which is saying something because you have a lot of very pretty pics on your blog!! You look great, enjoy (ahem!) the last few weeks, really looking forward to "meeting" little Mac3 too and hearing his name :-)

You look so beautiful in your 35 week shot! Love the behind the scene shots too! I hear your pain at 5 more weeks of hugeness and waddling , my fourth bubba is 5 weeks old and he was 1 week 'overdue' and by the end of his pregnancy I was truly over the hugeness!! Hope you are able to be as comfortable as possible in these end weeks.
Luv Donna

You look fabulous! I love the pictures of Levi riding on the bump. I kind of missed that once I didn't have a place to put my newly ousted "baby" of the family. :) I didn't realize you were wearing the same white shirt in all the pictures. That is impressive. What I never could squeeze into anything the same size the last few weeks.

Oh what precious photos you have!! You look beautiful Jess! The pic of your hubby is hilarious..that is something like I would have done back in the day with my hubby!
I think your little one is just too cute standing in the chair writing on the board, but my fav is you holding him! How sweet because you are holding him but carrying a baby too! You are the Moma!! :O
