Jude Robert, You Are 38 Weeks Old

And that's exactly how long you were in my tummy.  As of today at 1:45am, you've been on the "outside" longer than you've been on the "inside."  You are every bit of wonderment to your daddy and I.  I can hardly believe that you are soon to be 9 months old....before I know it, we'll be celebrating your 1st birthday...
and then sending you off to college.

Here we are:
38 weeks pregnant--just a few hours before we met you...
Our very first picture as a family of three--
within minutes of you coming into our lives

And here we are now--at 38 weeks old
Well technically 37 weeks, 5 days
on your First Thanksgiving!

And just for old times sake:

According to thebump:

your baby is 38 weeks old!

Baby's understanding of what's going on around him is improving every day. Start making simple requests like, "Give me the ball," and help him out by showing him what you mean and how to do it. Before you know it, he'll be following your directions on his own. Even without your prompting, he may start trying to give you things like his toys or food. Accept his offer and give him praise -- these are his first attempts at sharing! His awareness of cause and effect is also improving, which makes toys that allow him to grab, push, or manipulate things for an effect (piano keys, doorknobs, etc.) great options. 

I love you Goose.  So grateful you are in my life.
