I apologize for the blogs being few and far between. There has not been much to update on and life has been busy as always.

Walker is still in Utah working away at the new job. He is enjoying it and has seen some success with his project. Yahoo!

Jamison has been sick this last week. Poor little boy just sat on the couch with a fever for a couple days. We got him on some antibiotics, which has done wonders, and my happy boy is slowly coming back. He has discovered the world of movies and loves "The Jungle Book" and "Curious George." Oh, and did I mention that he's obsessed with Muppets? He continues to stack his books in piles and make neat little rows of things around the house. And hats... he loves hats.

I'm continuing to get bigger (is that possible?) and am counting down the days. After experiencing life as a single parent, I have new appreciation for those who do it full time. And I am fortunate that my mother can help out so much. It has definitely been an eye-opening experience and I am very excited for Walker to come home this Friday!

What NOT To Say To a Pregnant Woman

1. "You look like you're about to pop!"
2. "Are you due any day now?" (Asked when the pregnant lady still has 6 weeks left.)
3. "You have a big pumpkin up your shirt."
4. "You're fat!"
5. "You look a LOT better with this pregnancy."

These have all been said to me within the last two weeks. And how should I respond? I usually just do the old smile and nod routine. In my defense, my doctor is still encouraging me to eat as much as I want whenever I want, because he's still not satisfied with my weight gain. So there :)

Baby Update

At our doctor's appointment two weeks ago, Walker and I told the doctor about our moving situation. He said it was no big deal, and that we'll just pick a date to induce so that we can be sure Walker will be there. So, at my appointment yesterday, we set a date. We'll go into the hospital bright and early on October 8th to start the induction. Which means I'll have the baby a week earlier than the original due date. Boy oh boy, am I excited to not have to play the guessing game this time around. And I won't need to bounce on the exercise ball, drink raspberry leaf tea, or eat spicy food at PF Chang's (all of which were done with Jamison's birth).

Only 5 weeks from today. The countdown is on!
