4 weeks, and counting!

Here's the latest belly photo... I'm HUGE :) It was actually taken at 35 weeks. But as of tomorrow, we only have four more weeks to go (thank goodness!). We are SO ready and excited for the baby to come! Hopefully he/she will wait until after Madisyn's birthday party scheduled for March 10th, so that we don't need to reschedule.

Things have still been going wonderfully... minus the pinched nerve (if you've never had a pinched nerve, it is extremely painful!) I had last week and the extreme swelling I've had in my legs (especially the left) this week. The swelling was actually somewhat humorous since it was much more extreme in the left leg (looked like it belonged to a 300+ lb. woman) than the right. Thank goodness, any of this discomfort has no effect on the baby!

Rob and I are currently enjoying a wonderful weekend away from home, just the two of us :) It's been great to be able to get away one last time before the baby is born. We've enjoyed fantastic food out as well as a relaxing and restful couple of days. Thanks to our parents who are willing and eager to watch Madisyn while we're out of town!

Tiece, You are so cute. I can not believe it. I like the hair cut too. I will be praying for you all.

Girl you look great! You haven't even gained any weight except that belly! So is it a boy?? That sure looks like a boy belly according to all those wives tales...if you believe those! Can't wait to meet new baby Dykema!!

You must be getting excited - but those last few weeks seem to take the longest! I take a peek at your blog from time to time and love seeing pictures of Madisyn. I can't wait to find out if your new baby is a boy or girl (We didn't find out with ours, and it was so fun)! Take care and enjoy the remainder of one of life's most amazing experiences!

We are a busy family of five! I enjoy time with my husband and kids, running, being outdoors, shopping for deals, and cuddling. My wonderful husband keeps busy playing with the kiddos, hunting, fishing, exercising and working on projects around the house. Madisyn is six, in 1st grade, loves being outdoors and isn't one bit afraid of bugs or worms! Landon is four, a spitting image of Daddy, and is the sweetest, naughtiest and funniest little boy, all in one! Tinley was born February 24, 2012 and has already blessed us beyond belief! Here's a glimpse into our crazy and wonderful lives... hope you enjoy!

I've finally decided to make a blog (Tiece of cake) dedicated to cakes... as to not consume the family blog.
