Week 35 & 36: Finishing Touches...

Week 36: Crenshaw Melon
There is a saying that refers to installing a baby's car seat: "If you didn't sweat your arse off, then you didn't do it correctly"... OMG, they were RIGHT!!! I put the bases into both Christie's and my car this past week, and i think i lost several pounds in sweat (don't worry I gained it all back... wouldn't want to loose my manly figure now would I?), but I beat those bases and wrestled them into stable baby-protecting submission!

Week 35: Honeydew Melon
Christie is getting around pretty well, and she wants to start walking again so that it will help Rylie arrive sooner... which would be just fine with us and the doctors, since tomorrow we reach Week 37!!! This means not only has she surpassed the size of a Crenshaw Melon but she is considered "full term"... this is fantastic because the odds are in our favor to have a perfectly healthy little girl! We'll report more after the doctor tomorrow.

We also got the proofs for our Maternity Photos that we took at Engaged Studio LLC and being the internet genius that I am, I stole some to put on the blog just for you! Don't worry, we're buying a DVD of them all so its not really stealing... Anyway, here is a sampling of the pictures we had taken... Enjoy!

See ya,


  1. Great post, even better pics! Love them. Can't wait to see pictures of Rylie (and hopefully meet her before she's half grown!)!!! I hope the delivery goes smoothly, and Christie's going to need good luck dealing with you during these last few weeks! ;) Love you guys...all 3 of you!
