It's December so our son can come anytime now! Our due date is the 15th and we've decided with our doctor to induce on the 22nd if he hasn't come by then. I was ambivalent about induction with Claire, but when it went so easily, I had a change of heart! I'd like it to be natural this time, but I don't want a Christmas baby or a too big of baby either!!! Claire was induced three days early cuz the doc thought she might be big. She was only 7lbs 7oz so not big at all. Delivering a huge baby doesn't sound like fun even though I know I could probably do it. One week late will produce a pretty big baby I can imagine.
I packed my hospital bag awhile ago, but it's not yet in the car. I packed baby Elliot's bag this morning so tomorrow both bags will go in the car...just in case!! We're all excited to meet this little guy!
I'm making a chicken pot pie recipe tonight. I've never made it before. Easy, but lots of chopping. I always modify recipes and usually I get lucky!
As of last night I'm no longer treasurer! Hooray! That's a big weight off my shoulders.
I'm going to try to sustain my Shaklee business for the next few months and pick it up again in March. The baby and my family is the priority right now. I love doing Shaklee and hope my friends will get on board eventually or at least try some more products, but for now, I can take a little break.
Our Christmas tree is decorated and the majority of our Christmas shopping is done so now all we get to do is wait for the contractions to begin so we can zoom off to the hospital!

I was a French teacher for four years, a life-long dream achieved. Now, I'm taking a serious break to raise a family. I go to a United Methodist Church regularly with my husband, daughter and son. For my future ideal job, I'd love to travel the world eating in great restaurants and write food reviews!!! Someday I'd like to live on the Oregon Coast and be a translator for French tourists! However, in the meantime I'm earning a substantial income with Jewels by Park Lane, subbing & Shaklee!
