36 Weeks and Counting...

Sorry I've been a little behind updating my posts. I love reading everyone else's so much I forget to work on my own. I am now officially 36 weeks along and I had another doctor's appointment today. The ultrasound says our little guy is measuring to be about 6 to 7 pounds and is head down ready to go. I'm dilated to a 3 and about 60% effaced. The doctor made it sound like things are going to happen sooner than later, but I just want him to stay in there as long as he can just to make sure he is big and healthy. Of course I have the usual back pains and I'm starting to waddle, but other than that I think things are going okay. I just pray my water doesn't break in front of 27 fourth graders.

Here are a couple of recent pictures including some from the baby shower my work threw for me. I was very fortunate to receive so many great gifts. It helps me get that much closer to being ready for the big day.
Reed's most current work of art - in the bathtub. He LOVES the crayons you can write on the bathtub with. Personally I think they teach bad habits because if Reed ever gets a hold of a "real" crayon unsupervised he is going to think it washes off walls like his bathtub crayons do. Hopefully that day never comes... By the way, our water really isn't this blue. It's from one of the fizzing/tinting tablets Crayola makes. If you couldn't tell, Reed thoroughly enjoys his baths.
Brett and I were able to go to a Jazz game last Saturday and sit in the box seats. I don't really care for basketball, but if I get to sit up there and get fed all night I'm alright going to every Jazz game. It was a lot of fun and we were fortunate to sit where we did. Thanks Parsons!
