Things are going great here- we are less then two weeks out from little dude's arrival and are eager to meet him. My Dr. is being a little bit of a stink, she will only deliver babies on thursdays, so she really really wants to induce me. Both dustin and I (right now at least) say pshaw- I really want to go into labor on my own. Hopefully labor will happen this week as i am SO ready. Last Tuesday I was dialated to a large 3 almost 4, 50% effaced, and at a 0. Since then I have been walking every day and having some major contractions. I haven't taken an updated belly pic for awhile...if you are on instagram I put pics up there more often (a lot easier). 

I remember thinking (while pregnant with Miles) it can't be that hard to break your own water....

ANYWAY-on to a brief catch up- and HOPEFULLY the next post will be welcoming someone! 

Halle is doing great in school, and loving taking dance classes. She is continuily keeping us on our toes...a spicey little girl. She really wants to name the baby Nathanial... (unless I have a drastic change of heart) I am not a big fan of it. 

Bennett is loving school- I think I Mentioned that he has gymnastics time for an hour each day before I pick him up- he is one sweaty little boy when I pick him up. He has two little boy friends he plays with, and the girls adore him. A girl named Gracie has approached me mutlilple times telling me that she is Bennetts girlfriend. Bennett has no idea and is oblvious to it all. Bennett wants to name the baby Finn McMissle (Cars 2). 

Miles... cutie stinky pie. We think he knows his life is about to be changed drasticly. EVERY night for the past 2-3 weeks he has been coming in our room at about 12-1am. He tries climbing in bed on my side, and i will get up and walk him back to his bed and tuck him in. EVERY NIGHT. You would think he would give up just stay in bed but boy is he consistent. He is a cute little helper though and i love spending time with him every day. He is always pulling up my shirt (in public he tries even harder) and tells me "baby here" and then gives me a kiss. He also loves to poke at my non-existent belly button. 

D- has been a busy bee. Along with teaching seminary (early morning bible study)- do you know seminary here is from 5:30-6:20, and the kids then go right to school because high school here starts at 7! (Crazy glad that wasn't when school started for me). HE also just got done teaching an online class from a college in Nevada, along with doing his normal classes at Rice. We are associates at Martel College at Rice so me and the boys have been going up for lunch with him on Wednesday afternoons while we can. I think it is great for the students to interact with kids and to see a "normal" relationship with families.

I can't think of anything more exhausting than pregnancy... Then to have to get up and put a toddler back to bed EVERY. NIGHT! You are a saint!
