Full term

I'm super thankful today. I am 37 weeks pregnant today, which means I'm full term, which means that if Campbell comes now, he will be fully developed and functional.

So, 3 weeks until my due date. I will post some nursery pics soon. It's practically finished. Just need to hang a few items on the walls.

And Winnie has been sweet and helpful as usual. She likes to go in campbell's room and sniff and lay by his crib. She will be a sweet big sister!

36 weeks

Well, I'm 36 weeks. I'll be "full term" on Sunday. I have been very blessed through this pregnancy. It hasn't been easy, but looking back from here, God has been faithful and has given me a normal, uneventful pregnancy. I pray the coming weeks and months are similar.

I read this on my pregnancy iPhone app and found it funny. Enjoy!

If only you'd known you were going to trade...

Monthly PMS for nine months of weeping
Lacy thongs for cotton tents
Sex for gas
Zinfandel for warm milk
Birth control for laxatives
Going to the gym for getting up to pee
Your waist for a hot-air balloon
Kickboxing for kick counts
Your innie for an outie – a way-outie
Sleeping for groaning
Freedom for the most intense love you've ever known

Genuine inquiry

Taking a break from the baby posting, I have a question. Sincerely. Not making fun of anyone.

It seems like in the past year or so (maybe more -- I'm not always up on trends), people have started listening to vinyl records again. It seems like it's a big deal. I admit I see it more among the "hipster" crowds, but nonetheless, it is trending. (Which would probably offend said group. Which I find amusing.)

My question is this: what is so good about vinyl? Does the music sound different (better) than if I bought it on iTunes and played it on my iPod? I just don't understand it, and I would appreciate some enlightenment.

My father-in-law plays his old records, but he's almost 65. What is the value to youngsters though? What makes it cool? Help! I want to be in the know.
