36 Weeks

Dear Baby,

Because all my mom’s babies were early, I’m sort of expecting you to come early. And I would be completely happy if you did. However, the painting in the last post is due to the Spring Salon the week before your due date. Please don’t come until that painting is finished. Okay?

Love, Mama

    I'm sending good thoughts your way!!

    You look so cute.

  2. I think you will be late.
    yes, I am mean.

    ps. you are still tiny. and look super awesome.

    I love that you signed your note "Mama". Now, you are starting to look big enough to be pregnant. (winks!) You are cute!

  4. Mary says:

    All of my mom's babies were early too. None of my babies have come early on their own. So with my first I was expecting him to come early which made for a VERY LONG last couple of weeks.
    But then my sister's baby did come pretty early – just like my mom's. So you never know 🙂
    You look adorable pregnant!

  5. Meg says:

    You look great, Merrick! Also, I'm doing a fellowship at the Springville Museum of Art starting in May. I hope to see your painting there in the Spring Salon! 🙂

  6. Miriam says:

    All of mine came late – so there's hope!

  7. Chelsea says:

    Good luck! I think a lot of people either have all their babies late or early, but not always the same as their moms. So there is always hope!

  8. Hooray! Oh dear…they always have their own agenda on coming. But…that's very exciting that within a month he'll be here!
