Jen and Baby Leek

Still haven't had a sunset so instead I'm sharing Jen with ya -- this is one of Jen's pregnancy pictures and my favorite. I love how she just glows in this picture.

From her email with the size descriptor for week 38:
Your baby has really plumped up. She weighs about 6.8 pounds and she's over 19 1/2 inches long (like a leek). She has a firm grasp, which you'll soon be able to test when you hold her hand for the first time! Her organs have matured and are ready for life outside the womb. Wondering what color your baby's eyes will be? If she's born with brown eyes, they'll likely stay brown. If she's born with steel gray or dark blue eyes, they may stay gray or blue or turn green, hazel, or brown by the time she's 9 months old.
At least Baby Julianna isn't another forking melon! She's as long as a leek and I bet she is as pretty as her mom is. Here's Jen holding an ultrasound picture of Julianna while standing in front of Julianna's crib:


  1. Oh, Suzanne! She's so beautiful. Ethereal. Baby Julianna is going to be absolutely gorgeous - just like her mama and her grandmama, inside and out.

    Can't wait to meet her!
