5 weeks to go …

Here is another baby belly picture.

This is at 35 weeks of pregnancy. Christina is having some difficulty sleeping and generally just being comfortable, but we’re finally in the home stretch. I’ve been able to feel Sophia move a few times and it’s pretty weird (but cool). Christina’s last day of work was last Friday, so she’s now officially a stay at home mommy.

The work on the baby room is essentially finished. We still need to buy a mattress for the crib, but other than that we have a suitable habitat for the newest member of the family. We painted the walls green with a brown stripe in the middle, and then Christina painted some very cool animals on the walls to match the jungle theme of the room. I got a poster of the Jungle Book movie framed and on the wall in the room, and Christina’s mother and step-father got us the crib and the changing table. Here are some pictures of the (nearly) completed room.

Thanks to everyone for their support, and we would like to wish a happy Christmas/Holidays/Kwanzaa/Hanukkah/Festivus to all.
