37 weeks.

      We made it to "full term" meaning this baby is fully devolved and can be born any day now without being considered "preemie". A month ago I couldn't wait to be here, now I'm thinking oh my goodness! Its time to have hospital bags packed, freezer meals done, and the house clean and ready to go. Its been almost three years since I've had to do this and I feel like I've forgotten everything. I'm googling what to pack in a hospital bag and what last minute things to have on hand. I'm hoping it'll all come back to me soon.

      At my last dr's appointment we found out that baby Murray is breeched, meaning his feet are in my pelvis and his head is in my rib cage. This is upside down to how they're suppose to be for delivery. My doctor is gone all next week, so she suggested I try a few things to help get this baby flipped over. So I have an ultrasound Friday to check if we were successful or not, and where the umbilical cord is located. Then we meet with her again on Tuesday to review the ultrasound and decide what we'd like to do from there. Book a planned c-section, or do an ECV (manually turn the baby externally) if the umbilical cord isn't in the way.

      The day I found this out I was fine, then that night I started to get upset. I tend to like to control my situation and this isn't giving me very much control. I had a phenomenal labor with Levi and it made for such a good recovery that thinking about a 6 week recovery just sounds awful.  But the more time and prayers I've said I feel comfortable with whatever will happen. I've been so stressed the last few weeks that Dave would miss the labor, he's in an outdoor survival class where they're going camping a few times and then he's got hike coming up as well. I just felt stressed he would be gone without reception or make it back in time. So maybe this is the answer to our prayers that it ensures Dave will be there.

 We hit the waterslides for FHE last night with the Holsts and Kurtz. At first It seemed like a disaster, because that pool is freezing. Plus the wave pool scared Addie pretty good. Levi and Benson just weren't too sure what to think of them. But they warmed up to it eventually and loved it.

 I could not get Addie to look at me for picture, stinker!
 Dave and Levi went down the slide!

 The boys splashing Aunty Lala and Addie.
Shaylee and Levi riding the waves!

I keep trying to upload the videos of the kids going down the slide but can't get it to work.

I have been so bad lately at taking pictures with my camera, I just use my phone all the time. But at least ive captured the memories right??? These are in now particular order but heres us lately!
 Levi just having a serious conversation on the banana.
 Dave took Levi swimming, he's so much braver with dad!
 We got a tricycle from the library. Levi loved riding it all around the house.
 We surprised Grandma Roberts and went to the library. How cute is this tree?
 Dave took me out on a surprise date! Of course I didn't get a picture of us, but captured the yummy frozen yogurt.
 The crafts Levi and I made one afternoon.

 Playing out in the snow!
 We got a fish, don't ask how or why.
 This is 2 weeks ago, but were at the home stretch!
 Levi wears this owl hat all the time!
 We surprised Dave one afternoon with a little extra love!

 Levi stopped napping, whichc really means he crashes at 5:30 when Im not watching.

 The boys will be sharing a room and with all this nesting happening I convinced my momma to come help paint one of the walls. (i didn't have to convince she was so willing!)
 She's got such talent and I'm so grateful for you coming and helping me! Levis pretty excited to have a picture of papa's airplane on the wall.
Popcorn and a movie night!
