39 weeks. Wow.

Not too much to report -- just waiting and nesting and getting excited =). There are still lots of movements, and it's funny to picture a full-grown baby moving around in there! Looking forward to meeting this little one...
Now that I'm home from school, this week's photo is in front of what took up my time today: doing tiny laundry!

Since this week's short, I'll also include a prayer I've said almost daily that's comforted and calmed me these past 9 months asking for a safe and healthy pregnancy, birth, and baby:

O Lord Jesus Christ, through the intercession of Your tender Mother, Our Lady of La Leche, who bore You close to her heart during those long months before Your birth, I place my baby and myself entirely in Your Hands. Free me, I beseech You, from useless and consuming worry. Accept the sacrifice of my aches and pains, which I unite to Your sufferings on the Cross. Above all, most merciful and loving Jesus, protect this child You have given to me from all harm, bestowing the health and vigor every baby needs. Implant in my heart and on my lips the words and prayers of Your Mother and mine, our Lovely Lady of La Leche. All this I ask that my child and I may live to praise forever Your Holy Name. Amen.
