We’re almost there! This week, at 36 weeks old, mom says that I’m pretty much ready to come out. I’m about the size of a head of romaine lettuce and am between six and seven pounds now–enough to survive on the outside. And although I could be in here for about four more weeks, mom keeps saying that she thinks that I will make my appearance sooner.
In fact, mom was talking to someone the other day and they too said that I am baked enough to make my appearance. But wait a second, I didn’t know I was baking! Is that why it’s so hot in here sometimes? This could also be the reason that mom says she’s so hot all the time. And I’ve heard her say more than once that she’s roasting. I think that this is similar to baking, so does that mean that she’s really baking, too? Will I continue to bake on the outside? And does that mean that I’ll be hot on the outside, too? So many things to learn. I can’t wait until I come out and start getting the answers to some of my questions!
Just like mom, I think that I will make my appearance sooner, rather than later. I guess it’s only a matter of time…the final countdown is on!
