Today we're in our third trimester. That means you'll be here in 84 days, give or take. Just three months left! You weigh about 2 1/2 pounds right now, and I think you're still head down. (That's good! Stay like that.)
Last week, we traveled for a wedding (and to visit your Auntie Jill and Uncle Luke), and I was pretty exhausted by the time we got home. That's the last of our traveling for a bit, because no one wants a pregnant lady to give birth on an airplane. No one. This week, Maddie and I are recovering, relaxing, and getting ready for a couple of visitors! Your Granny Jill is coming on Friday, and your Memere will be here a week after that! It is going to be a fun and busy couple of months, and then it'll be time for you.
This is the view from our bedroom window this week.
Pretty, isn't it? When you arrive, those colorful leaves will be gone, but the evergreens will still be green. (Hence their name.)
Next week is Halloween, and your sister is very excited about it! We've been reading Halloween stories, and she runs around saying "How-eeen! How-eeen!" She has two costumes this year: the first is Madeline of the Madeline books by Ludwig Bemelmans. She was named after that very Madeline!
I'll show you a picture of her second Halloween costume next week. Trust me - it's cute. It'll be her first year trick-or-treating, and I think she's going to have a blast. (Don't worry - I'll eat plenty of her candy. That counts as her sharing with her brother, right?)
We can't wait to meet you, Simon. We're in the homestretch, now! Almost there. My symptoms at this point include crazy amounts of exhaustion, heartburn (mostly at night), back and hip pain, and peeing my pants way more often than I'd like to. What are you gonna do.
