Week 37 has been a good one. 
It's had it tough moments of comfortableness and emotions, but what would you expect at this point. 
37 week appointment: No dilation yet, but I've "thinned" more and doc thinks babies head is down. 
So progress for sure, right? :)

Kevin and I had a "baby-moon" day. 
Ideally we would have loved to go somewhere else, but I just wasn't feeling 
up to a long drive and didn't want to risk anything being so close to my due date. 
So instead we stuck around town and had a full fun day together. 
We got up early for breakfast & coffee at Panera.
Kev took me to get a professional massage (AMAZING), and while I was getting my massage
he snuk out and bought me roses, a card, and some of my favorite cupcakes. :)
After that we got a yummy drink from Sonic, and hit up Liberty for a game of pool. 
Then saw Iron Man 3, home for a nap, then to dinner. 

Part of me really wishes we had more time with just the two of us. 
It's such a bittersweet feeling knowing our boy is on his way so soon. 
I'm going miss our freedoms together as a couple without kids, but I know we are trading it for 
joy and love that we can't yet comprehend.

I only snapped a few shots from our "baby-moon" day. 
Here they are ::

He won, but it was a close one!  photo 5AFE7CBF-D5AC-49D7-99BE-ACCB320BDE78-81052-00000ECEDC916CAB.jpg

It's a little difficult to see, but my feet are swollen in the picture below. Can't complain though - it just started happening.
Pregnancy sure is a good lesson in letting go of "self" and focusing on the needs of someone else.

Kevin put together our "Rock N' Play". 
 I mentioned in my previous post that this is an item SO many moms told me they loved. 
Can't wait to try it out!

Had some awesome items come in the mail this week!  photo 00BD6282-7D61-42B8-9B51-D79BAAAEA376-81052-00000ECB28D1FE1C.jpg  photo 3A099BF0-F177-4026-80A5-8A78C63B73E2-81052-00000ED08C9BF06E.jpg 
We deep cleaned the house on Sunday - which meant I was ready for him to arrive after that. ;) 
His due date is May 22nd, but we're really praying that he arrives May 17th or 18th. Kevin has some really important school stuff this month and with his schooling and work it would just work out the best if he came a few days early. Lord willing though! 
We know it's in God's timing, and we're OK with that. :)  photo 2D80BAF6-ADAE-47F4-8098-2DD0DACDD38A-81052-00000ED28BFD418A.jpg 
Random Bump Shot of the Week ::  photo 6333cd78-d9d1-4dc8-bdf4-a9027a229203.jpg  photo 237BC8D3-616A-4AD7-BA2D-4042EA3449A2-81052-00000ECE5E5BF674.jpg 
I really love this verse below. Something I don't blog enough about is how much God's Word means to me in my everyday life. I'm reading the Bible through a year (along with some other ladies). If you are a Christian, I want to encourage you to get in the WORD. Whatever it takes, get the Word in your heart. The Word is our fighting ground, our solid rock, our bread of life. Jesus said it himself - Matthew 4:4 - "People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God." (NLT)

Anyways, I could go on about the baby and faith, but I'll wrap it up. 
Cheers to 37 weeks, and not many more!
