42 weeks

It's been quite some time since I've acknowledged the boy's age in fact, the only way I've even kept track is because BabyCenter still sends me weekly e-mails updating me on what my X week old baby should be doing (prior to him being born these were weekly e-mails comparing my unborn child to unknown fruits and vegetables!). Today our boy is 42 weeks and this is significant to me because he has now spent the same amount of time outside of me as he spent inside of me (for those that didn't know...yes, I was 2 whole weeks overdue!). My how our lives have changed in these last 84 weeks. There are definitely things that I sleep, being able to leave the house on a whim, sleeping in, more 1:1 time with my husband, taking a nap, going to a movie, did I mention sleep...and these 42 weeks have definitely been harder than the first 42 weeks (pregnancy was a breeze for me...even those final 2 weeks weren't so bad!)but I certainly wouldn't go back because this boy is simply amazing (and I'm counting on those things above to come back to us/me eventually!!).

Here's a shot of Aa and I the night before I was induced and some of the boy tonight (those finger and toes are just delicious to me!).

(those blue eyes...just melt my heart! if you click on the picture you can see it bigger)

(Yeah, Kellen! The boy loves to clap now! Oh and he's starting to dance now...must catch that on video soon!)

Can't believe he's already at 42 weeks. He's so cute with those big blue eyes and chubby cheeks.
