39 Weeks, Etc.

I am: 39 weeks pregnant (I wonder if this will be my last weekly picture or if I'll be taking another one next Monday? We are playing the waiting game - fun times!)

Total Weight Gained: Between 20 - 22 pounds
Maternity Clothes: I am wearing maternity jeans and a maternity shirt in this picture.

Total Weight Gained: 22 pounds (I think Parker had a mini-growth spurt this week and I did a little more eating too!)
Maternity Clothes: I am wearing maternity jeans and a maternity shirt in this picture. Side note: This picture was taken before our date night on Saturday night. We had a really fun date night. We went and ate at Macaroni Grill ~ yum. The food was delicious and we had a really good talk. After that, we went to Lifeway Christian store and each got a CD that we have been wanting. We ended the night by going to a new cupcake place for dessert. All they sell is cupcakes so there were many to chose from. I got cookies and cream and John got peanut butter cup. Oh my...they were heavenly. Actually, the store is called "Bliss Cupcakes" and they were bl…
