Yep, still pregnant!

Thanks for all of the encouraging comments everyone. They're so much fun to read!

So...... We are officially inducing on February 29th!! Leap day! I know, I know, some may say that that is the worst thing to do to a child. But I personally think it's awesome! Who will ever forget his birthday? And when it IS his year for a birthday, it's a HUGE deal, and when it's not he gets to choose when to have it. Ross thinks maybe we can convince him that he really only does have a birthday every 4 years. Just kidding. (Well I am at least). That would be mean.

Anyway. Probably because we've talked so much about it he'll come early or it will take me longer than 20 hours to have him. Either way I will have a baby in less than a week and a half! Crazy. It still hasn't hit me- but we are certainly READY.

My dad took some moody maternity pictures of us a week and a half ago. I think they turned out well. We do have some smiling ones too, these just happen to be my three favorite.

Oh- and the nursery is officially done. Pictures to come.

you guys are so awesome...the pictures look great! good luck on the leap day delivery date! hyrum was due on the 29th, but decided to come 10 days early (though he wouldn't have made it to leap day anyways...michelle went into labor the day before she was scheduled to be induced).

i have a friend whose sister was born on a leap day...they had a huge deal every 4 years, and i think they celebrated on the 28th or the 1st on the other years...can't remember.

good luck!

I know it's been a while since I saw you, but I found your link on Mikel's blog and couldn't resist commenting - you look so great! What an exciting time for me to stumble across your blog! I hope all goes well!
PS - my husband was born March 1st (barely). His mom refused to have him February 29th and fought to have him later. He's kind of sad about it now, since he thinks it would be awesome to be a leap-year baby.

I am glad to see that you are doing well. I think that your pictures look amazing. I wish that we had done something like that. You will be so glad that you have them. Nice work on finishing the nursery, we didn't make it in time with Gwen it was a rush after she was born to get it put together.

One week to go, good luck and know that we are thinking of you.
