Almost an Outtie!

My belly button never popped out with Leo.  You'd think a kid that turned out to be a whopping 9 pounds 5 ounces would cause a girl's belly button to pop, but no.  And it may sound weird, but it's just one of this little things I always kinda wanted to happen. 
And now here I am, at 36 weeks with little Kernel #2, and I have almost popped!  There's still a slight indentation, but it's getting shallower by the day.  Ergo, baby girl is getting bigger and bigger, though hopefully (please God) not getting up to Leo's birth weight (or 95th percentile head size...)
All seems to be progressing well with the pregnancy - lots and lots of vigorous movement, plenty of Braxton-Hicks contractions, still lots of hiccups, you know - all the usual things.  We've got a stack of cute (and oh-so-tiny) basic clothes all washed and folded, and a little sleeper/rocker/bassinet thing for daytime downstairs naps.  We're ready to rock!

we're not registered anywhere for her, since we don't need any more big gear. She'd love any cute clothes, blankets, etc.
