Sorry about the blogging hiatus. I know as my faithful readers you have all been dying because I haven't posted in over a week. Truth be told- I have nothing to blog about. I know. It's depressing. Our computer is at the shop (thanks Jordan!) because we thought we got a nasty virus, and now we are on the move! We're moving tomorrow to our new apartment. When we're back up and running (probably the middle of next week) I'll post some pictures. In the meantime, don't miss me too much.
PS- I've officially "popped". Maternity pants are now much more comfortable than unzipped jeans :o). It's both exciting and depressing. I guess I should expect that now that I'm 9 days from halfway.

SURPRISE!!! We found out early...

And we're having a baby girl! Apparently the majority really does rule (according to our poll). We lucked into a free ultrasound today, Jan. 20th. My sister-in-law, Sierra's, boyfriend Seth's sister Kristen (did you follow that) is an ultrasound tech that represents GE. She was in town and offered to give one to me for free. How can a pregnant girl refuse? Especially when you throw in the words 3D and gender determination. It was so much fun! My sister Cami went with me, and Sierra came from Logan to see as well. We watched the baby move and do cute things like rub her eyes, do little kicks like an acrobat, and suck her thumb for 45 minutes. It took awhile to get a good shot of those little parts, but by the end we finally did it! She was stubborn with her legs crossed and the cord between her legs pretty much the entire time. We are very excited to meet our little girl this summer.

Also, to my joy, she measured for the due date. June 28th is what they came up with. MUCH closer to my prediction of June 29th. We'll just have to hear what the doctor says after my ultrasound on Feb. 23rd....

So far we like the name Annie, but we have not settled on that by any means. We would love any suggestions from you!

Breaking up the Ordinary

***Small update: Will used the potty for the first time yesterday! Perhaps my goal of having him trained before the baby comes could actually be a reality.

So many times there are wonderful moments that break up the mundane-ness of every day life. Like these moments for instance:

On our way home from church I asked Will if he had a good time in nursery and if he was a good boy.
His reply, "I hit all of 'em."
"All of the kids?" I ask.
Luckily after talking with his nursery teacher I found out that this wasn't true and he was just saying it to get a reaction out of me. Stinker.

While waiting in line at the bank, a 40 year old man's phone rang. The song? Reading Rainbow Theme, "Take a look, it's in a book, Reading Rainbow!"

After a huge snow storm in Heber, there was a guy that was tediously sweeping off his astro-turf lawn. Mind you, we had at least 18 inches of snow.

My Directing professor at UVU (Dr. Petrie) referring to the President Elect as "Obambi", the wide-eyed fresh to the world president. (He said he was speaking in "symbolisms").

In other news, we think we found an apartment. We'll know for sure if we'll be moving in the next couple of days. If we do, we'll be in our new place the beginning of February! Hooray for having your own space.

Baby Update

I had another OB appointment today and they scheduled the big ultrasound for February 23rd. It feels like a long time from now, but I'm sure once school gets under way the time will go by very quickly.

Everything went really well. I have finally started to gain weight- 3 lbs this month to be exact. The nausea has really subsided in the past 2 days and I'm hoping it's going to stay that way. The baby's heartbeat was really strong at 140 bpm (which is exactly what Will's was). I have been able to feel the baby move in the last week and it has been really fun. There's nothing like those reassuring kicks to bring a smile to your face.

Don't forget to take our poll- we can't wait to find out what we're having on the 23rd of February.

Things to look forward to in January

When you're pregnant it's hard not to dwell on that infamous due date. Since mine is a little shady, I decided that I'm going to get excited about other things along the way. Here are some things I'm looking forward to in the first month of 2009:

1. The Bachelor- It's a guilty pleasure, I must admit. Plus Jason is so cute and that's a nice bonus.
2. My directing class. Finally something that pertains to my degree! I can't wait to get my hands dirty.
3. My OB appointment on Thursday where we will be scheduling our big ultrasound.
4. Wintercross in Heber. I love this white-trash event, it makes my little boy smile.
5. The Wilson Family Birthday/New Year's steak and shrimp dinner. Shrimp is one of the few things I've been craving this pregnancy (that and mozzarella sticks from Arby's. Mmmm).
6. The plethora of Birthdays we celebrate this month- James, Kristie, Beau, my Dad, Clay, Nate... I know I'm forgetting someone.
7. LOST. I can't wait to be sucked back in again.

And last, but certainly not least, we have decided not to move to Logan. Dallas is instead going to be working part time at Wasatch County and going to school full time. It allows us to have a flexible schedule, excellent benefits, and better pay than we could find in Logan right now. We are excited to actually have a plan. We are going to stay at Grandma's until the end of this semester, and then we will be finding a small 2 bedroom apartment to move our family into while we are trying to get through school. So, if you know anyone that's renting a place for about $800/mo let us know! I'm glad we will be in our own place by the time the baby comes.
