Waddling through the final stretch

We just finished week 36 and couldn't be more ready to meet Bryce and be done with this pregnancy! :) This is a big week for us, last week Brandy has to work, last week of childbirth class and (hopefully) the last week Matt will have as a break-in in the command center.
My clothes are not fitting anymore and I have accepted the fact that I will have some belly coming out of the bottom of my shirt, whether the rest of AK accepts is, it is something else all together. I had numerous comments this past weekend including "you are huge!" by a check out girl with braces and frizzy hair, "I have never seen someone carry that low before!" by random ladies in store (back to back with ms. frizzy hair) and a few of "you are so adorable" thrown in there. Notice there is not a single comment with the words thin, hot, or sexy in the mix. To be expected I suppose.
We learned on Friday that Bryce is already 6.5 to 7 pounds and is expected to weigh in at 7.5 pounds at birth. Deep breath. Doctor York said that Matt was cute because he cared and was asking questions as opposed to the jackasses who go in to the appointment with their partner and play on their gameboy... he actually said guys do this!
I am down to short walks and bocce ball (to Matt's delight but Mom's shagrin). Here are a few pics of the beginning of month 9!

Bryce's Room

I am not sure if you know, but we live in a split level house right now. So there are two bedrooms, the family room and a bath downstairs and the living room, kitchen, master bedroom and bath upstairs. The reason I am bringing this up is that Bryce's "nursery"is downstairs while our master bedroom, that we really like, is upstairs. So although I am including pictures of the nursery it will probably only be used for storage and occasional naps when mom is downstairs.

The crib is thanks to Grandma and Grandpa Richards, blanket was made by Aunti Traci, I painted the letters for his name, the bedding set was from the great-aunties, the toys are from Aunti Lisa and her lovely boys. Matt found the "changing table" on craigslist, a hotel was selling a bunch of these to make way for new ones, so we bought two. The pictures are from a used children's book, put into cheap frames that I painted.
