Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake

This pregnancy is wrapping up fast. The, I only have a week left, kind of fast. I am just wondering when he will decide to make his big debut! I have been the biggest procrastinator getting things ready for this baby boy of mine. I finally got around to washing his clothes LAST night.  As the time is drawing near to delivery, it makes me a both excited and sad all at the same time. Sad you ask? Yes, because I am one of those women that seriously LOVES being pregnant. I love feeling the baby move inside me, I love watching my tummy grow and I love the anticipation of the arrival of the new little one. I also LOVE eating and feel I can get away with it a lot more when pregnant ;) Food baby=the real baby haha!
