baby bump alert: taking his sweet time

Alright already...I am ready.
They say you are never fully ready for your first baby - but I assure you at 40 weeks a pregnant woman is ready.  All I do right now is walk around -- the mall, the neighborhood, the yard, anywhere.  We have tried all of the safe measures to "gently coax" baby along, but to no avail.  He, unlike me, is not ready quite yet.   He still moves around a lot.  His head is still in the down position.  
Baby is apparently going to take his {sweet time.} 

He may choose to be on time - coming July 12th, his "official" due date.
Or perhaps he will be fashionably late - a couple days after he is due. 
Or *gasp* he might be really late, a week or two, forcing us to induce his little baby butt out.
  * praying this is not the case...or an indication of his future punctuality *
This is definitely God's way of teaching me and Hubby patience, which I am sure we will need a lot of in the next 18+ years!
{These pictures are technically taken at 39 weeks, as you can tell by my prop above. But you get the idea.}

This is my final baby bump alert...
The next "baby post" will be introducing  'lil Baby C into the world!
Praying for a healthy baby
and safe, natural delivery!
We are ready for what God gives us.
{So very ready.}
