At 39 weeks I've shifted into a new gear. Things feel so bittersweet and precious now, not knowing how much time we have left as a family of just four. I am cherishing sweet snuggles and little conversations more than I usually do.
Over the course of this pregnancy both of my kiddos have weaned, so for the last few months I've felt a little more free and autonomous (ironic, considering that I've been hugely pregnant at the same time!) and I know that any day now I'm going to re-start that amazing breastfeeding relationship with a new person who will be totally dependent on me and my boobs for perhaps years to come. Its an exciting and overwhelming feeling, all at once.
We finished our Birth Mix this past weekend, and I love listening to it all the time. I don't even know if it will be used or useful during the birth (it will depend on how I feel in the moment) but meanwhile it's helping to set the vibe for welcoming a new baby into the world. I am sure it'll serve as the soundtrack to our new life for a while.
I wore this Butter By Nadia dress a few nights ago when Taro and I had the opportunity to go out on the town. I think it's the only thing that fits me now besides giant maternity leggings and t-shirts ;) The jacket is vintage Ann Klein, the shoes are Betsey Johnson, and my Whiting and Davis clutch belonged to my grandmother.
Will there be a 40 week post? Stay tuned to find out...
