34 Weeks

At this point, the main thing Wade is doing is storing up body fat. According to Dr. K, he will become less active in the next week, because he will be getting too big to move much. That hasn't happened yet, and he is as active as ever. His immune system is developed, and he now has fingernails and toenails. Just the thought of trimming them makes me nervous!
He now weighs approximately 6 pounds and is 19 inches long. We had a hard time finding something that weighed 6 pounds, so Lee is holding 6-1pound bags of pecans. He thought it was hilarious. While working at school this week, one of the kids (who is 5) came over and said, "Whoa, you're FAT!" I explained that the baby was growing and that's why my tummy is so big. His eyes stayed opened really wide and said, "Uh-huh. Still fat." Lee seems unfazed by it. The only time he seems to notice is when he wants me to pick him up or wants to sit in my lap. He talks to him, sings to him, tickles him, counts for him, and makes plans constantly for him. Some things lately that he has planned are Halloween costumes, birthday parties, and swimming in his pool with him. He is very excited about his baby brother, although I'm not sure he fully understands how small he will be when he's born. For example, just tonight in the bathtub he said he was going to teach him to swim this summer. He also claims that when Wade learns to sit up, he will start sleeping in his bed with him. We are having so much fun making plans and getting ready for him. 5 weeks to go!
