36 Weeks - Our little "Crenshaw Melon"

Happy Monday! I hope that everyone had a fabulous Fourth of July weekend! Peter/the girls and I decided to stay local and just have a relaxing weekend with not much on the agenda. It was the best decision ever! Peter and I woke up Saturday morning and looked at one another and said "what do WE want to do today?" - as we both realized it was the first Saturday/Weekend in our 2 years together that we didn't have an agenda or somewhere to be. It was so FREEING - OMG, the best feeling ever. We took the gals to the Oak Park Farmers Market in hopes of scoring some of their fresh (and highly talked about) donuts and some fresh veggies. We then hit the pool later that afternoon and ended up at a good friend's house for an impromptu BBQ with some awesome fireworks! Sunday we were at the tennis club for Fourth of July activities - the petting zoo, pie baking contest, pool games and a BBQ. The weekend could not have been more perfect and was just what we needed (for one of our last weekends as a Family of Four!).
This past Friday I hit the 36 week mark - wahoo - less than 4 weeks to go! I'm laughing as our move in date (back into our house) is scheduled for the day after my due date - why not do it all at once?! Ha! We are SO excited to get back into our house - cannot wait!
Little Baby Boy Carr is now the size of a crenshaw melon (which I had never heard of before) - per Baby Center. "BBC" now weighs about 6 pounds and is putting on about an ounce of weight a day. He is about 18 1/2 inches long. We cannot wait to meet "BBC" - I've grown quite attached to the little guy and his patterns of kicks. Being pregnant has been such an amazing and interesting process - and talking to other woman that have been through it has been so helpful. There are so many random things that they don't really talk about in books - and it has been nice to talk to other moms about the process.
