Last time as a family of four!

Well the time has come! I turn 40 weeks on this upcoming Sunday, but still no signs of baby! I was really hoping the baby would come spontaneously this time (Addie did, Dallin was overdue & induced) but it's just not going to happen. We could wait- but I am a little nervous about how long we'd be waiting for. I have been stuck at a 1 1/2 cm for the past four weeks now and 65-70% effaced. As my doctor put it, "Your cervix is stubborn". She said she could try stripping my membranes but was pretty doubtful it would do anything besides make me uncomfortable. Also, they took the measurements of the baby and it looks like he is already 8lbs or more. So, we could wait for my body to go in on it's own, but it might be weeks, and meanwhile the baby is only getting fatter and then we wouldn't have any induction set and would have a hard time getting in so last minute. We just decided to go ahead and get this sweet baby here! So tomorrow we go in to the hospital (hopefully) so that baby Bass will be born on Saturday September 28th. Hopefully things go well!

Last weekend, we thought it would be fun going out as a family of four to celebrate together. So we went to Red Lobster which was really nice! The kids thought the live lobsters were great and loved their popcorn shrimp- they scarfed it down! Bummer I didn't take a picture!

Monday we had the opportunity to go see a free movie the theater was showing (it was Harkin's 80th anniversary). So we went and saw "Epic" for free! That was super fun and the kids did really well. Dallin LOVES the popcorn so he was pretty content for most of the time, but he got restless halfway through (so did I thanks to a full bladder) so we took a little break and then came back. Addie did great and was loving the candy Jared had taken them to pick out earlier that day. In fact, she nearly polished off the entire bag of gummy worms by herself! She is my daughter for sure!!

Here are some other fun pictures from our last few weeks of a family of four!
We found Addie asleep like this one night...guess she needed her hat to sleep the best! ha!

Excited for tomorrow and to meet our little guy who we've been anxiously waiting for! Addie is really excited to hold him, and Dallin has no clue what's going on, other than his awareness that something is amiss- which is why he is so clingy and sensitive lately (I think). Jared and I are both hoping things go well and praying he'll make it her safely into our excited family! :)

So excited for you! I can't believe I had you over here yesterday and forgot (again! I've had it for over a week now) to give you your baby gift. I even had it sitting out so I would remember, haha! Please don't hesitate if you need help with kiddos or laundry or groceries, etc. Good luck!!
