Just Because

I realize that its been a while since we've blogged, but it seems like our day-to-day life just isn't very blog-worthy most days. However, since I get frustrated when its been more than a few days since Sheila blogged news on the girls, I better get in better habits. Our big thing (baby-wise) this week is that Jeremy was able to feel the baby kick. He had his head on my belly singing to the baby and it kicked his ear. I'm not going to read into it though, I'm sure the baby was just responding however it could, nothing personal. We have an appointment the 5th of February and we're going to try and see if we can weasel another ultrasound...we'll of course let everyone know if there is any news.

Jeremy has been really stressed this week, so today he went ice fishing for the first time with some of the guys from our ward. I'm hoping someone took a camera, if there are pictures we'll share. Its some sort of derby with prizes and stuff, but I think Jeremy just needed some male bonding. I was invited, but I don't like being that cold. And I just keep picturing scenes from Grumpy Old Men. He really likes blogging himself, so I'll let him update you on his world.

Things are really normal with me. The baby and I have come to somewhat of an understanding as far as the schedule goes. As long as I get up and go potty before 5 am it'll let me keep sleeping until 7, but if I'm even a little late, its time to be awake. I don't really think there's anyway to have the day/night thing down by the time its born, but might as well try. Work is going well, the hospital transitioned well to the new year and I'm almost all caught up on the stuff left over from 2006. I think that's pretty good. I'm thinking about working a little less at WSU. I've been doing 3 massages a day and I think it might be time to drop it down a little. We'll see how things go at the doctor's.

Well, I've got lots on my list today. Sharing time for tomorrow, Taxes, Fasfa, laundry, dishes (in my now working dishwasher, I love my husband!) and the usual Saturday stuff. I love the weekend.

Baby's First Portraits

This morning Beth and I went in for our first ultrasound. We got some pretty cool pictures. Unfortunatly baby's legs were crossed the entire time and we couldn't see what was between them (if anything). Oh well. We got to see it move. It seems we have a very active baby. The ultrasound technician said everything looked good to her. It was really fun to get to see our baby for the first time. Here are the pictures she took for us:

20 Weeks

Here is a picture of me at 20 weeks:


And here is a picture of Jeremy:


We have an ultrasound on Tuesday and we will be posting any news we get that evening.

Snow & Snowballs



We've had snow, and we paid off one of our snowballs. We now officially own two mobile homes. Talk about slum lords!

The Bathroom Part II



Jeremy's Grandma gave us some gift cards for Christmas, so we decided to re-do the bathroom completely. Jeremy ripped out the shelf that was above the sink and we stripped old painted wallpaper off the walls. I picked Blue because it seems like everything else in our house is green and yellow. It looks beautiful! The trim for the window is still drying, but when we get it put up we'll post the finished product.

The Bathroom




My wonderful husband set to work on our ugly bathroom this weekend. It is still a work in progress, but this is some of our efforts. The windows were my idea, and ended up being a lot more complicated than I thought, but Jeremy figured it out, and they look beautiful!

The Crib

We've been really busy since we got back from Christmas Vacation. I've had to put Jeremy to work since school starts in a week and I won't be able to add anything to his To Do list for a while. Here are some of the projects we've been working on. Opie gave us a beautiful crib that we managed to fit in the car, since we don't have room to store stuff, we figured we'd set it up and put all the baby's loot in it until the little bean arrives. And it has a lot of loot already!




I'm going to be a daddy!


We're Bloggers!

Because we are so far away from our many friends and family, we've decided to start a blog. You can check in here every so often and see what we are up to. Also, we figured this is a good way for us to keep everybody up-to-date on "The Baby".
