Life, as we know it, is going to change.... FOREVER!

Its been over a year since my last post.  Life is about to get real crazy, so I figured I should probably get on here and update a bit.  I will let some pictures do the talking for me.

The awesome new crib from my mother in law.  Blake set up this beauty for me. :)

So there you go.  We are having a baby boy.  He's due May 11th - Mother's Day.  He's measuring big, already about 7 lbs 11 oz, so we'll see if he actually waits another 3 weeks or so.  I've felt great for most of the 3rd trimester. Only recently have I started to feel huge, and a little miserable from all my insides being smashed.  Being pregnant is such a trip!  The word "miracle" takes on a whole new meaning, as does the word "sacrifice".  Some things you can't explain, but it is a pretty awesome experience.  I am amazed I can even type that because for the first two trimesters, I swore there would only be one baby coming out of this body; I felt so sick all the time.  Now I'm just excited to meet the little guy.  He doesn't have a name yet.  We're waiting to meet him first.  Blake has been a huge support to me.  He's always concerned with my well being, and willing to help me with whatever I need.  I'm so glad he convinced me to quit my retail job before the babe gets here.  Last Saturday was my last day as a Deseret Book employee.  I'm grateful for that job that helped us through the last year and half, but I am so glad to be done with retail.  Also, we finally found a place to live and moved out of my parents house about 2 weeks ago.  My parents are the best, and I am so grateful for their support and willingness to put up with us mooching off them for the last 8 months or so.  Its been awesome to be able to focus on getting our new place ready for the babe, and also have alone time with Blake.  Blake is studying hard in school and it will be interesting to see if the babe decides to come in the middle of his finals that start in a week and half, or waits til finals are over. :)
We still have our furry child - Honey. :)  She's excited for the baby too!
