WOAH. How are we already here? It seems like just yesterday I was finding out this little one was growing inside me and now we are on the final countdown. 

I'm not going to lie, this has been a tough pregnancy. Physically, I am utterly exhausted. Emotionally, I am all over the place. While I cannot wait to meet this precious boy, I am overwhelmed at the thought of three (!!!) little lives needing me to love and nurture them. 

Currently, I am about 33 and a half weeks along and almost into the last month of this. And boy oh boy can I feel it. Mostly, this baby beats me up with ninja kicks but the exhaustion and heart burn are just oh so lovely. And by lovely, I mean terrible. 

I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We have most things ready for little man's arrival. And I've picked a name (still waiting on Paul's final OK). This month, although I am physically wiped, I want to focus on smothering Emma and Henry in attention and as much energy as I can muster. 

Moms with three or more kids, GIVE ME ALL THE ADVICE. Please&thanks. 

Now for what you came for, BUMPDATE PHOTOS.
