busy busy busy....

the last few weeks have felt like a whirlwind of events. Its been a fun summer and its wierd to think its almost over...1.5 weeks left till this little babe is supposed to make his arrival...please bless its no longer than that. however, i still feel amazingly well, so i can't really complain. I went to girls camp last week for a few days...the first day i thought i would attempt a hike to see if i could get anything going....but no, 8 miles later and i felt just as great as ever...went to the doc tuesday following and she said i was at a "good 1" so maybe a little somethin somethin did happen. she also asked me if i wanted to be induced next week....hmmm, so tempting but no thanks. ask me again next week and we'll see! This morning at exercise class i thought i just might shimmy that babe right on out, we were doing a little too much jumping up and down and running around the gym.....i might retire from exercise class for the last week of this pregnancy and just walk...but we'll see...maybe not.

I've been kinda busy making a few wedding cakes this summer, i wish my sis were here to help me out with them, but i've managed, and have had a few wonderful helpers along the way....

(my friends sister Ashley MacKay took the beautiful pictures which make them look much better than thay actually are---except for the "U" one which is in my kitchen)

I had a baby shower here in firth, and recieved so many wonderful pictures from the shower, except i did take a pic of this beautiful and adorable quilt that my dear friend Des made for me, i can't wait to show you how cute it looks in baby j's room, but its stunning and i am so in love with it. i feel bad that the picture does not do it justice, but trust me....

anyways...i keep hoping my next post will be that our sweet little bundle has arrived....and it probably will be since i'm pretty terrible at posting regularly...but until then....we just keep waiting.

little happenings...

oh goodness..i am boring.

no pictures this post, again.

i'm am freaking out a little that my little guy will be here in 5 1/2 weeks (or less)....where exactly did all the time i thought i had go. although i am so ready and excited, i am also so not ready and anxious/nervous. am i sure i can do this?

I honestly still feel super super amazing....the only thing i can complain about is the lack of sleep that i have been getting, good prep for whats ahead of me i'm sure. baby boy is measuring right on. i still am able to go to my workout class on m.w.f., and i'm so thankful for that, except that 5:30 a.m rolls around so quickly after 3 hours of sleep at night. I keep telling myself that if i can make it to 36 weeks and still be exercising then i'll be good and maybe take a few weeks off to totally relax, but we'll see how i feel, maybe i'll keep on keepin on till i can't anymore.

I've kinda decided this little guy is going to be a wild one for me, but shy around all others. he is so crazy and active when its just me, but anytime i feel him kicking and try to show someone (even chase) for them to feel him going crazy, he stops. either way, i absolutely love the feeling and it gets me very excited.

i have a long list of to-do's and i feel like i've got all the time in the world to check it off, but i don't. and i need to get going....painting babies room next week hopefully...then i'll show you his cute room. oh i can't wait.

chaser and i celebrated our 3 yr. anniversary on monday. really. three years already. seems bizarre. he's just all ways. wonderful for me, wonderful to me. i am lucky. we went to utah for the weekend to relax, shop a little and just enjoy what will quite possibly be our last get-away childless. thats a crazy thought.

i promise pictures next time. maybe i'll actually take some this weekend at our family reunion.

until then, thats all folks.
