Well, here we are at 40 weeks, a place where I am totally unjustifiably shocked to be. Penny set us up with unreasonable expectations of how long a pregnancy should last. Though in my mathematical brain I understand that being "late" is just as likely as being "early", since a due date is sort of arbitrary, I like to think of myself and my children as being so exceptional that we are all ready to deliver at 39 weeks. See? I'm learning stuff already. Since today is my due date, I am now officially on leave from work! I hardly know what to do with myself! I am going to try and get a haircut and a mani-pedi, and stay out of Penny and her sitter's way this afternoon. Maybe the New Kid and I will watch some TV!

38 was the last photo we got to with Penny - she was born at exactly 39. Have I mentioned that her due date was also the 24th, and she was born on the 17th? Hahahahah, that doesn't mean anything, right? I'm sure this baby is staying put - we've got things to do! Besides having potato feet, I'm feeling really good. I have worn shirts two days in a row that don't really cover this ridiculous belly, so it may be time to switch to dresses full time.

- do not step on it
- do not touch it
- do not smell it
- and least important, do not step on it"
she then asked the sitter for the key to the room, and dramatically "unlocked" the living room/gallery. did i mention she was wearing a princess skirt this whole time? as it turns out, it was a delightful collaborative watercolor, but the presentation really put the whole thing over the top.

We went to a delightful 4th of July party at friends' house tonight, with an amazing view of the fireworks. I'm so glad they've moved back so that we don't have to leave Brooklyn. Take a look at my feet in the photos above - they are so swollen, they don't want to go anywhere.
