Summer has been busy for me. You know how summer is just "go-go-go"? And it seems like you never have time to just relax? That is how mine has been. If I'm not busy at work (and I am, with some new duties they gave me), I'm busy with the kids. We are always out enjoying the weather, going for walks, going to the park, or going swimming. Anyway, I'm 37 weeks today! Officially full-term. It makes me happy to know that if my baby decided to come now, he/she would have lungs strong enough to breathe on his/her own and would most likely need zero medical intervention. These weeks have been flying by. Next week I start my weekly appointments. At my last one, last week, the midwife said, "whoa" when she felt how low the head was. I was also measuring at 34/35 cm at 36 weeks, so I'm betting on another small baby. That is fine with me! I am just so anxious to know: boy or girl. Yet the suspense has been amazing and I'm glad we didn't find out.
I also wanted to share something we did on a forum of mine. It's where you interview your child. I did this with Andrew. Enjoy!

Elise is doing great. She's 17 months now and is learning more and more words and can drink from a regular cup (she never caught onto the sippy thing). She is still nursing a few times a day and I'm working on night weaning, but that's been put off so long now I don't know if it'll happen.
