I’ve come a long way…

18 to 38 Weeks
(As has that poor, tortured tank top that rues the day it was chosen as my belly-comparison shirt.)

Luckily for both of us, we’re about to get relief.

Unless something happens even sooner, Noah will be joining our family (in the outside world) bright and early Monday morning.

He has a made-with-love-by-his-Godmother hat and bootie set waiting to be worn home…


His room is ready and waiting for him…


…complete with “friends” voluntarily gifted to him from his very excited big sister.

And, as bizarre and surreal as it seems at the moment, Christmas morning is waiting for our new family of four.

We are all thrilled and bursting with anticipation to be welcoming our tiny baby boy into our world.

I, AND Noah, will see you again soon.

As I said in my Social Media Birth Post, I’ll be tweeting and facebooking his birth, and when I can, blogging.  If you’re wanting to follow along on Facebook, email me this weekend with your Facebook name or URL, and I’ll friend you.

  1. You still look so great! ALL baby! I love the picture of the Christmas jammies! It is surreal to think about…it’s so funny but even when they kicking away at your belly it’s hard to wrap your mind around the fact that there is actually a little human being inside of you. It truly is a miracle! Can’t wait to see your little miracle on the outside!

  2. Yay! I’m so happy for you that the big day is almost here! Good luck and I hope all goes smoothly and as painlessly as possible. What a wonderful Christmas gift for your family. Can’t wait to hear of Noah’s arrival and see pictures, oh, and win the guessing “pool”. :0) Congratulations to you all!

  3. I too am amused by your “expanding camera” :)

    Beautiful nursery for a beautiful baby. We’ll be praying for a safe arrival and blessed Christmas!

  4. Rachel, You look fabulous! I am so excited for you and will be praying for you. I can’t wait to see pictures and read about Baby Noah’s arrival. The nursery is absolutley adorable, and I thought it was precious that Ali has given some of her stuffed animals to Noah.

  5. Rachel, your tummy is awesome!!! Why wouldn’t total strangers want to touch it??? It’s really your fault for having such a precious belly :)

  6. I can’t wait! My cell phone died today, and my first thought was, “What if I get THE TEXT MSG?!” It is charging now, so go ahead…whenever you’re ready! We can’t wait to meet wee Noah and welcome him to the “family.” Love you guys!!
