Baking is a nesting urge, right?

Last night I made a delicious coffee cake, so I wanted to send a big thanks to t.bird from the Nest for the recipe! I wish I had taken a pic of it before I started cutting of ginormous hunks of it for Shaun and I to eat, but the picture on her blog gives you the idea. The only change I made was to use half chocolate chips (milk chocolate flavor) and half Hershey's cinnamon flavored chips. Yum! Check out this recipe and some of T's others on her food blog here! (And yes, I did make the maple glaze she suggests, and it's fantastic!)

The imbibing of copious amounts of Raspberry Leaf tea has also commenced. The contractions are starting to get a bit more intense, but they're still really irregular. I'm not holding out hope that she'll arrive early, but I suppose stranger things have happened. She has slowed down quite a bit in the last couple of days... it took a bag of M&M's to get her moving last night. I'm hoping that's a good sign. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Fingers, toes, eyes, etc.. crossed that she comes a bit early and happy and healthy (and quickly too! and maybe painless - that's a nice wish eh?)

Just a fun factoid... first timers tend to deliver at 41w 1d... enjoy this time... you'll miss it.
