Happy Full-Term Day!

It's true, this week marks our 37-week anniversary with little peanut, which means I am officially full-term. He can come anytime now and be perfectly healthy and on-time. Anytime. Like... now! How about now? Okay. Now!

I may be slightly anxious for this little guy to show up and really join the party.

We kept the celebration simple, since walking a block to the bus stop feels like a major athletic undertaking these days. It was a quiet night with our friends Ben and Jerry (happily on sale this week--"only" $9 per pint) and a foot massage from Fabio. Baby celebrated by discovering my ribs and kicking them. A lot. He thinks he's so funny.

We can not wait to find out all about him, especially based on what we know so far: he seems to be a Johnny Cash and Jay-Z fan, he likes to stay up late jumping around, and he gets really excited when Fabio tells loud jokes. All good signs he'll fit right in.

Fabio captured my reaction to the price of ice cream when I first got here. 
You are reading correctly: $17.80 for a pint of Haagen Daz. Not good news for the pregnant lady.


  1. Aaahhhh! $17.80 for Haagen Daaz! My life would be ruined. We had the Prince's, Leishman's and Nielsen's over last night for some FHE fun and were just talking about how you must be close and were wondering when we get to see pictures of baby Gaertner! Can't wait...just a few more weeks to suffer through.

  2. So, when I saw this price I first though, "that would really help with me trying to diet." Then I wondered what the conversion rate was, thinking there is no way ice could ever be that much... right now for every US dollar you get $1.27 of Singapore moneys. So $17.80 is still $13.99 for ice cream; ridiculousness!!! Hang in there. I'm so looking forward to seeing pictures of baby Gaertner! :-)

  3. I miss see you both at church sunday schools never been the same ..we miss u katie.
