Yup, I am still pregnant and bigger than ever! Surprisingly enough, I don't feel too awful yet. I am very uncomfortable, but I can do this a little longer. Last week was a big week. I was praying that Max wouldn't come early because we had a lot of church responsibilities. Last Tuesday, I got to decorate for the Relief Society meeting. Although I was huge and wobbling, it was still fun to set up all the centerpieces and create a beautiful room for the women to enjoy. Then on Friday we had our ward harvest party and trunk or treating. Since I am the activities committee director, this was a lot of work! I don't think Dan and I sat down even once the whole night. When I got home, my feet and legs were so swollen and sore. But again, it was so much fun and I love serving in my church callings. It's one of the things that brings me joy in life!

This week is all about relaxing. Since I am on maternity leave now, I can sit back, and kick up my feet all week. Errrrr, except for that long list of to do things before Max arrives. I still have some preparing and organizing to do, but I figured if I get one project done a day that's good enough.

I have a Dr.'s apt. on Wednesday to check my progress, and see if this little boy is ready to come. I think the biggest question is are we ready for him to come??? Yikes!!! I am so nervous! My mom is coming this Saturday, and is staying for 3 weeks to help us. My sister and dad are coming in 2 weeks, so we will have a full house. It will be great to have our families support and love. It means so much to me that they are making an effort to come help us, and love on the baby of course!

One things for sure, if Max hasn't come on his own, by this time next Tuesday, I will be in labor. We plan on having me induced next Tuesday. It's crazy to think that we will be a family of 3 next week. Life is about to change...for the better!

I was going to tell you, When people come to visit, realize that they came to see the baby. Chat for a little bit, say thanks for coming by and go take a nap. If they want to stay and see the baby then Dan, and your other family can stay and chat. My sister told me that and I appreciated it. Anyway, I can't tell you how excited I am for you. I got your gift I just need your address. I'll call you soon.

I'm so excited for you guys! It is going to be such a fun and exciting time for you! You will be a mommy before you know it, and it's the BEST thing ever! Definitely while you have help around take lots of naps, that will be so nice! Wish I were there to help out and meet Mr. Max when he arrives!
