Woohoo for just 9 more days until Nate is born..
Sampson is just so cute. I wonder what he is really thinking..

Wow, what a difference in belly size! Now I wonder if my belly will be bigger with my second child...and my first belly was already HUGE! Looking forward to seeing Nate in 9 days! =)

Wow, only 9 days. That's amazing to me!

Less than ten! Can you believe it?

It looks like you are carrying Nate a bit lower as well.

Well, they say with each subsequent pregnancy, you do look bigger than you did the first time around. I know I'm only 7 weeks and I'm already starting to "show". Holy crap!

I'm so excited for you -- can't WAIT to see pics of baby Nate! And I agree with Gina... Nate looks lower than Ava did.

You've come so far, Karla... I'm so excited for you.


9 days. Wow!
You look beautiful!

You look beautiful and Samson looks very happy to be soaking up all the attention! I can't believe there is only 9 more days until Nate's arrival! I am SO excited for you and your husband! You will contuie to be in my thoughts!! Hugs!

Only 9 more days! Yay! His birthday will be the day after my son :-) Can't wait!

Can't wait to see his cute little face.

yep, you belly does look more beach ballish..LOL. Unfortunately you get bigger with each pregnancy!

9 more soon!

Cute pictures. Samson is going to love his new brother.

9 DAYS HOLY CRAP!! wooohoo I'm thinking of yah as always!!!

I was that size at 5 months with my 4th. It's true that each pregnancy increases the size, not necessarily of baby, but of mother's belly. Oh well, it's all worth it in the end. I am confident that in only 9 days you will be crying tears of joy when Nate is born. And you won't give a damn about your jiggly belly.

You look amazing! I can't wait to see what little Nate will look like :-)
Are all of those tests they do on you normal, or because you're high risk?
Posted by Blogger Arlene :  December 13, 2006

Wow! On both, though, you're cute as hell!

I was going to send you a Christmas card the other day, and totally forgot that you can't just drop an envelope addressed to Canada into the mailbox and call it a day. Soooo, I'm gonna have to go to the post office, hopefully soon, and more than likely it will be late.

Also, I need to know something you would like for little Nate to have. I haven't had a chance (or the money) to get him anything yet, and I want to make sure it's something he needs. Don't tell me not to get anything, b/c I will no matter'll just be for after he's born!

I can't believe how close it is getting!! I must say, I am so excited for you, and can't wait to see pics of the little man.

Isn't it funny how differently your belly looks?? Looks the same size to me, but you are definitly carrying differently, rounder with Nate.

You are looking wonderful Karla!!

Brand new lurker here. I don't know you, but I am very excited for you! Your family is much overdue for some pure joy, so here's hoping for just that!
