Hello! I am so full of gratitude for everyone's sweet comments. I have really appreciated and needed them! I just wanted to post a little update so that it didn't seem like I had dropped off of the face of the earth.

We are coming up on the last four weeks of pregnancy!!!!!! YIPEEEEE!! I really need to post a picture . . . I just feel so slobby everyday (what with only sweats and over sized T-shirts to wear ) that I haven't really been eager to get in front of the 10 lb. adding camera!! LOL!

I just got home from the Dr.'s where, they sent me to labor and delivery for a Non-Stress Test and blood pressure check. Apparently my BP is high. After all of the tests, the nurse was giving me all of these medical results. I said, "What does that mean?" She was like, "Well, basically, you are exhausted!!" Oh, I could have told you that! :) So, I am ordered to sleep and keep my feet elevated. RIGHT!

I won't even start to tell you about how I deserve the "Worst Mother of the Month" award . . . because all I really do is sleep! My boys have been so patient and sweet with me . . . including Sterling who let me sleep pretty much all day on Saturday (and did the laundry, and cleaned the house!)

I really just can't wait to be back to "normal" - whatever that means anymore! I also cannot wait to meet this little one who has been my constant companion for the last 8 months!

Well, Myles is asleep so I guess I had better rest while I can. I just thought that I would add a picture so that this post isn't so boring.

Sweet little Asher at his swimming lessons. He did surprisingly well! I am so proud of him.

No wonder you're exhausted! My biggest revelation during this pregnancy (my third too)... pregnant moms who have two little ones already can kiss their maternity napping goodbye! Oh, how I miss those naps :) Thank goodness for weekends and understanding husbands! Hang in there.

You have been under a lot of stress lately, no wonder you had high BP. Keep those tootsies up honey! Only four more weeks! YiPee!!! It will all be worth it when you get that precious baby here.

Take it a few chocolates for me!
