(My mom is laughing as she reads this because I'm not exactly known for always being early... or on time, for that matter.)
But seriously. I've already used TWO WHOLE WEEKS of the twelve weeks I am allowed for maternity leave! I realize I am not working for health reasons, but every day that goes by without Christopher here is another day that I don't get to spend bonding with him.
And there's a small possibility that I'm just getting crankier by the day!
Your baby's waiting to greet the world! He continues to build a layer of fat to help control his body temperature after birth, but it's likely he already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.
