On and on...

Is it just me or does life literally seem to pass by more and more quickly, the older we get? I feel like its a little out of control to be honest. How can it possibly be May 21 already!?! And if its May 21, then that makes tomorrow the 22nd. And that means that our due date is ONE MONTH AWAY!! Sheesh. Where has the time gone?

The one bonus to nearing the end of May is that our weather is getting better and better. Sunshine, blue skies and mid to high 20 temperatures are becoming the norm and are, obviously, more than welcomed. I checked the forecast yesterday and it said that by Monday, we're supposed to be up to 30+ celcius. Yes please! :)

On a different note... I've been feeling extra thankful for my husband lately. Not only has he been super supportive through this pregnancy, but he's so willing to step up to the plate in the areas that I'm less able to now. Last night, he informed me that I was to mark this Saturday on our calendar as "loose ends day." I am not allowed to schedule anything else for that day. He said he plans to clean the house from TOP to BOTTOM--- "nothing will go untouched," were his exact words. :) He then plans to work on the basement a bit more, get any other baby room projects completed and anything else I may have in mind. What a good man. I just love him to bits and can't help but smile at his continually growing excitement for the baby's arrival. I'm SO blessed! (side note: the nursery is almost completed, so I'll post pictures next week.)

We finish up our last prenatal class tonight and both Jon & I are very ready to be finished. Its not that it hasn't been beneficial, but its a 2 hour class, every Thursday evening and it will be nice to have our evenings less busy. Tonight's class is all about post-partum and then the last half of the class will be our hospital visit. I would usually be quite excited about the maternity ward visit, but having spent a few days there earlier in this pregnancy, its nothing new to me :) None the less, it will be good to go through the registration info. and meet some of the staff.

I'm really looking forward to next Tuesday evening. We're having some pregnancy photos taken by a woman from our church. You can check her out at I'll be sure to post some pictures once we get them back.

Sorry this isn't a very exciting post. I don't have any pictures to share. We were at our friends, Kevin & Ashley's, wedding this last weekend and I'm quickly realizing how badly we need to invest in a new camera. Almost all of my pictures were blurry and out of focus so I don't even have any to add to this post. But I'll definitely try to come up with some nursery & pregnancy photos for the next one.

That is wonderful of Jon! I hope that it can be so relaxing for you! Look forward to seeing pics of the finished baby room (though I am sure it will not be finished until after Baby Esau arrives!)
