Larger still

If I'm measuring a week early, does that mean I have a more likely chance of delivering a week early?  I won't count on it, yet I'm secretly hoping that I do go a little "early".  My last two have been on or near my due date.  But I really wouldn't mind being just five days or a week early...really.  Here's my thirty-six week picture,  measuring at thirty-seven (courtesy of Hyrum).  Yes, I'm bored out of my mind in anticipation...hence the constant house cleaning/baking/checking facebook/blogging.  Still haven't picked up my other hobbies for a very long time.  I used to be an artist, musician and many other things.  Think I need some new interests.  Never thought the day would come when I'd actually have moments of boredom with three children.  But apparently, I've adjusted enough that it's time for a change.  I'll enjoy it while it lasts.  Our world is about to be turned upside down once again.  How I love being a Mother!

My Hero

  Sadly, it's a rare event that those who go about quietly doing their duty get much of any recognition in this world.  But, truly heroes surround us every day.
I'd like to honor one such hero.  This man has served his country active duty for over ten years, loves God and his family enough to truly live each day for them.
    I wanted to express gratitude for my husband - for all that he is, all that he does, and for what a wonderful blessing he has been to me especially.  He has been a source of healing, strengthening, and kindness in our marriage.  He is my treasure.  Thank you my sweetheart for being the man that you are, and for being willing to go through this life with me - to learn and struggle, and feel joy with me.  I am more blessed than I've ever deserved to have you and to have our children.  I couldn't imagine a better father for our children, nor a better husband for me.  How far we've come.  How much we've been through together.  How deep my love and appreciation is for you and all you bring to my life each day.

So, in case I don't show or say it enough, here's an extra
I LOVE YOU my wonderful, handsome and simply amazing husband, best friend, and forever love!
