Is it necessary to be a full week overdue? Our baby doesn't want to come out and meet us. My doctor is super surprised that I haven't even felt one contraction yet. Nothing! He says everything looks like I should be in labour soon. He's hesitant on inducing me because he says both the baby and I look very ready. Ready or not...the baby's not coming. I have doctor appointments every couple of days and Non-Stress Tests at the hospital all the time too. Last week Tim said that he thought it would be cool if the baby was born on our anniversary. I thought that seemed like forever away. Well, tomorrow is our anniversary and I can only hope the baby comes then.

When are you coming to meet us? Your daddy and I are trying so hard to be patient. We've been waiting so long to meet you. We know you love being all snuggled in Mommy's tummy, but Daddy is sure wanting his turn to hold you. We are so anxious to meet you and each day we await your arrival with even greater anticipation. We're so excited to have you join our little family. We love you so much already!
Love Your Mommy

On my birthday I had my maternity photo shoot by Jill Alston Photography. I was 35 weeks in these photos. If you want to see more of them then click here. I'm pretty self conscious about the bare belly ones, but I think she did a great job with them.

Have you heard this story about the two babies from the Lethbridge Hospital? Tim heard it on the news last night at work. Just Google it. It's all over the Internet. They are saying that the babies didn't contract the infection from the Lethbridge Hospital, but still what else would they say. Now I'm so paranoid to have my baby. I think I'll just keep him/her in forever. It's safer. I feel for the families of those two little babies. I couldn't imagine.

A couple of weekends ago we went camping with Trent, Tara, & Blake and Kendall, Julie, & Kyla and Tarren to Payne Lake. We were out in that area for Kyla's Baby Blessing and decided to make a camping trip out of it.

Yesterday Tim got a brand spankin' new 2008 Dodge Ram 1500. It was his turn for a new truck cuz I got the new car last year. However I blame Kendall for this purchase. Apparently when we were with them last weekend he told Tim about this wicked deal that Dodge had on right now. Well Tim jumped on that "wicked deal" and now we have a new truck. The price was awesome. The truck is fully loaded (without leather though) which totally beats the tape deck we had in our last truck. hehe And I really can't complain about the four doors that this new truck has. It'll be awesome for the carseat. And Tim's so excited about the 5.7 Hemi that it has. It should make pulling our trailer while hauling the quad (when we get the quad back) so much easier now.
After spending 3 days there we came back to Jaffray. On Saturday morning us girls and kids drove down to the Farmer's Market, while the guys quadded down (Tim borrowed one of my dad's quads). We had breakfast there and wandered around.
And one of the days Tim and I went with Jenn's family to the Bull River Fish Hatchery near Jaffray. The kids always love it there and I wanted to show Tim those giant trout they have. We took a picnic and had a good time.
We headed home the next day as I had a doctor appointment and Tim had night shift. Guess that's it for our summer holiday. If you want to see more pictures check out the Camping 2008 (Part 3) Photos on the side of our blog.

Tim took some days of work and we headed out for our summer holidays. Our original plan was to spend the entire time in the States, but with me being so close to the end of my pregnancy I was a little too nervous to go there. Didn't need to have the baby outside of Canada. So plans changed.
We went to Chinook Lake in the Crowsnest Pass first. We thought we'd check it out after these guys went there. It was super beautiful (as the Whiddens have shown), but we didn't take any pictures cuz we weren't there long enough. So here's Part One of our Summer Holiday.
Tim was SUPER excited to do some quadding around there. We went with our neighbours. In the morning Tim went out on his quad with the other two guys from Stirling. Less than 30 minutes later I see only two quads coming back to the campsite. I did the quick scan to make sure there were still three guys...check. Then I did the scan to see which of the two quads were coming back...not Tim's. CRAP! Tim limps over to me and our conversation goes like this:
-Are you okay?
-Where's the quad?
-Back there on the trail.
-Why didn't you tow it back?
-It's in pieces.
-Did you roll it?
-So they tell me.
-You don't remember?
So 3 km from the campsite on the first ride of our holidays Tim destroyed his quad. Broken axles, missing tires, broken throttle cable, broken break cable, and tons of cosmetic damage too. And that's the stuff that we could see. We're still waiting to hear from Kawasaki with the actual repair estimate. Gah! But in the end who cares. Tim walked away (or limped away) from a crash that should have hurt him...BAD. And that's all I care about. Quads can be replaced. He didn't have a scratch on him. All he had was a bruised hip, a broken visor on his helmet, and no memory of going for the quad ride (the memory is fuzzy but slowly coming back to him now). The guys say he actually flipped the quad twice went he hit a giant rut in the trail. Needless to say that ended the quadding part of our summer holiday. We winched the broken quad into the back of our truck and went to Jaffray to see my parents.
See those big beefy tires? Just spent close to $400 on them. They only have 5 km on them. And now no quad to put them on. Tim sold them to my dad as it'll be quite a while before we have our quad here again.

I've been so busy that I just haven't had time to post lately. But I'll play a little catch-up today. On the 19th of July was my 26th birthday. Yikes! Tim got home from night shift that morning and woke me up with breakfast in bed and a birthday cake. It was great! Plus I got a gift from him that I was really wanting and that evening I went and had my maternity photo shoot. I was spoiled on my birthday.
Yesterday I had my doctor's appointment. Looks like everything is going well. I'm measuring small and my doc said that's okay cuz it just means I'm not going to have like a 10lb baby. Sounds good to me. Baby's no longer breech and my doc said he'd be REALLY surprised if the baby didn't stay head down now. I'm now 37 weeks and could technically have the baby any day. But I'm still feeling pretty good, so I'm still counting on at least another 3 weeks to get everything ready for baby. I feel like there are 101 things that I still need to do before baby can arrive. But Braxton Hicks are slowing me down (oh well). We did buy a crib last week though and have it set up now (with no bedding yet). And I think I have all the basics to at least bring baby home -- I just picked up some little sleepers (in blue and pink), some diapers, some wipes, and such. Now on the agenda for this weekend is packing my hospital bag. THREE WEEKS TO GO!! I'm so excited!
