These beauties are for Jack. I'm so excited to start dressing him in Converse. Maybe he will have a love for these shoes as much as I do.
As for my doctor's appointment today: a tiny bit of progression, but not enough to induce (Bummer!). Here are my stats...
So there you have it. We are still patiently waiting our baby boy's arrival and can't wait to meet him.

First, I thought Jack-Jack would be a girl: that didn't happen (and I was really excited to use the name Lily Jane).
Second, I thought I wouldn't get stretch marks: oh man...I don't think there is a square inch on my butt that isn't covered in a stretch mark (excuse my bluntness).
Next, I thought for sure I would have Jack-Jack early. Yet here I am, still preggo with only two days left until my due date.
Lastly, if I haven't progressed this past week (like I think I haven't), I'm hoping my doc will set a date for inducing me (which of course, could be very wrong).
So yes, I can admit I'm wrong. And isn't it so funny that it takes me having a kid in order to confess it. Such is life. :)
My weekly doctor's appointment is tomorrow. Yep, at 9:30 am on Thursday, February 18th, my doctor will be deciding my fate. I'll let you know...maybe.

Oh yeah, baby. I've been missing my Thin Mints these past months. Which gives me another reason why I'm glad Jack hasn't come yet...I can eat as many of these bad boys as I want...and not feel guilty. I can probably polish off my boxes before then. :)

- My doctor is out of town this whole week. If I was induced today he would not be delivering my baby boy.
- February 11th would be a weird birth date (no offense to all those who were born today).
- I'm sleeping great and I currently have a burst of energy. I'm more mobile now than I was a week ago.
- If Jack is born after Sunday he will be born in the year of the Tiger...same as me (for all you Chinese New Year followers).
- We have more time to prepare for his arrival. We have all the major bases covered, but it would be nice to get all the little things figured out too.
So really, it's OK that he didn't come today. Besides, he really isn't due until the 20th...so I'll live. I just want him to be happy and healthy (and under 9 lbs!).
In other news, I finished a project for his room on Tuesday. Here are the results:
I fell in love with these wooden frames at Hobby Lobby (my new favorite place!) and thought they would look great in his room. Also, do you recognize the wooden blocks? They are from the photo shoot that Bernadette did for me...seen here. I was trying to figure out some way to display them, but it's kinda hard when you only have white walls to work with (side note: I can't wait to own a house so I can paint the walls!!!!). Anyways, thanks J.D. for giving me the idea and Bernadette for supplying the letters!!
All the Best.

I had my first weekly appointment today and everything is still dandy. I lost a pound, which the nurse assured me was pretty normal since my appetite is dropping off to prepare for labor. That's fine with me...one less pound to shed when Jack is out. :)
Have I progressed, you ask? According to my nurse I have:

Although, I don't know how my body will be able to cope with a photoshoot. But again, I really don't care. I have an itchy trigger finger.
Just another reason why I want Jack-Jack to come soon. So I can have a subject when I have these urges.
So, any suggestions as to subjects or remarkable places for picture taking would be greatly appreciated.
