He is such a great little guy.  Sleeping and eating great!  Ashlee is taking to being a mother so well.  The updates will continue from now on!

Still no baby...

Just wanted to update those who check on here for updates....

No baby! YET! After seeing the doctor on Wednesday we will wait until Monday before they induce me.

Please pray that I go before then. I'd rather not have to wait 3 more days and go through being induced. The doctor reassured me that it's not bad, and I'm sure it's not terrible but would still rather not go that route if I don't have to.

Thanks for all the love, messages & emails!

41 weeks

Oops thought that we had posted something in the last couple weeks but apparently I was too "busy" waiting for the baby to remember to write.

I was hoping to not have to ever write "41 weeks" but I've alway had in my mind that I would be late. My mom was 2 weeks late with all 3 of us so she warned me.

I have to say I'm feeling pretty good. I've been sleeping pretty well- in fact I was only up twice last night! That's success at 41 weeks!

We go to the doctors today where he will do a scan to see how the baby is doing. If things are okay he will let me wait until Monday and then be induced. If the baby is not safe and healthy then I would get induced tomorrow (Thursday).

I've really been hoping I wouldn't have to make a decision as to when to be induced. I pray that the scan makes things very clear. I trust my doctors wisdom but also know that a week over really isn't really that late.

One way or another we will have a baby in our arms on Thanksgiving and that's something to be thankful for!

Paddle for Poverty and Prayer

Here are some photos from last weekends Paddle for Poverty.
Registration... we were a little nervous as only 14 people had registered for the event before hand but we had over 80 paddlers on the day!

Lined up ready to go

Some people paddled the 10km themselves others did it in a team of 4. And I(Ashlee) did laps around the free snack table during the event. The locals boardriders want to see this happen every year and were grateful for the free treats after the paddle. This was really encouraging for the guys who organised the whole event. We feel like it was a great success, especially for the first year!

This Saturday and Sunday we have a fundraiser BBQ at a local surf competition. Please pray that we make positive impact on the boardriders we are serving and that everything goes smoothly. 

We're in the home stretch now. 39 weeks! Any day our baby could come. I currently have a cold, sore throat & runny nose. I got it from Jeremy (thanks Jer!). So we are hoping that it passes before I go into labor. We'd appreciate your prayers for quick healing of the cold!

Feeling very large this week!
