Our doctor's appointment went well yesterday. We're dilated to a 2 and everything's looking good for Monday. We go in at 7am, and my doctor thinks that we'll have our new baby with us by lunchtime. Sure hope she's right! I'm sure it goes without saying, but I'm excited!

Today is going to be especially great because my best friend Summer is coming to visit and Nathan comes home tonight! Yippee! He's been out of town this whole week on a nightmare kind of a job.

Definitely not the best timing in the world, but at least he gets two full weeks of paternity leave after today. Thank heavens! And the baby hasn't come early while he's been away, which is a major blessing. So lots to be thankful for, even though it hasn't been the easiest week.

Thanks to everyone for your sweet comments and words of encouragement. I can't wait to post about our new arrival when he gets here!

I am glad everything is progressing well. Tie Nathan down while you have the chance. I hope all is going well. I am looking forward to meeting my new nephew.
