Less than a month!

In fact, we have just over 3 weeks to go until my due date! It's hard to believe that we're so close to welcoming another baby into our family - the past few months have flown by!

I had my 36 week appointment with my doctor on Tuesday. The baby's head is down and I am a little over 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced, which means that my body is beginning to make some progress to get ready for labor. The heartrate has been in the 140s pretty consistently throughout my pregnancy, but this time it was in the 150s. I guess the baby's getting excited about what's to come too!
I'm feeling pretty good overall, in spite of not sleeping very well and having some minor aches and pains. The most important thing on my mind right now is spending as much quality time with Erik and Malachi as possible. I want to really enjoy these last few weeks of our family the way it is now before things change forever!

Wedding season is officially over for the Cake Kitchen, too! This was my final wedding cake of 2009 and I'm looking forward to a bit of a break until January. Congrats, Matt and Stef!

You look so great. I am so excited to find out what the baby will be. If you wouldn't mind having it a week or two early while I am in town I would not be disappointed.
